Default 'The Soloist' - High-Def Digest Review

Aaron has reviewed 'The Soloist.' This sounds like a nice surprise that was badly marketed during its release. With fantastic video and audio, along with a few chewy extras, this one is highly recommended.

Is this a type of movie someone can see themselves watching more than once? I thought it was great and I really enjoyed it, but at the same time I don't see myself ever watching this again.

I was really disappointed in this. Great acting, but nothing else really worked for me.

It's funny, this movie got really mixed reviews with the critics, but every one who's reviewed the Blu-ray so far loved the movie.

I haven't seen the movie, but if it's as good as Aaron says, then I'll have to agree with the comment about bad marketing. The trailers looked terr-i-ble. They really put me off from seeing it.

agreed. the trailers looked like crap, though the prospect of watching Jamie Foxx was another big put off.

Because box office numbers show how good or bad a movie is




The marketing for this movie was terrible, I think I saw 1 trailer, and that's it. Even Grindhouse had better marketing.

pretty sure the whole movie was about him playing a cello, not violin.
