Default 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist' - High-Def Digest Review

Tom has finally gotten to see 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.' He says this one was a disappointment, and one that moved at a snail's pace. This Blu-ray has fair video, good audio, and a nice mix of supplements. Rent it first!

I enjoyed the movie well enough in the theater, but it just wasn't something I'd probably watch multiple times so I passed on the blu. I'd have given it a 3/5 for the movie itself.

I have this movie and I also thought it was smart/witty. Missing the digital copy though. Anyone have it for sale, or willing to give away? If so, PM me.

Totally agree, 3/3.5 out 5 for me. Liked the movie, but I can see how some would see it as slow.

And like another poster said, I think it was going for "witty" far more than "laugh out loud hilarious".

I enjoyed this movie a lot and picked it up on blu. While I can see how this would not be for everybody, I don't think this movie deserves 2 stars. Paul Blart on the other hand...

I rented it and didn't care for it. I felt pretty much the same as Tom, on both the technical side of the film, and the film itself. I was mostly bored from start to finish. In the end, I guess it just didn't appeal to me.

Yeah, I watched it with a friend and she was totally deadpan the entire time. I asked her for her thoughts afterwards and she said she was bored too.

Definitely a rental first just to be on the safe side for this one.

what was with the Norah Jones cheap shot? That was out of left field and didn't contribute much.

I think this movie is really cool if you're 11-18... seeing as I'm not, I'd give it about a 2.5 or 3 out of 5. The review is pretty spot on, besides the NJ cheap shot.
