    I suck at names, if it wasn't apparent XD

    I remember 'Rocket', 'Starlord', and 'Groot'. Also 'Thanos' I guess, even though he didn't personally appear to my recollection.

    I've used phrases like a few extra frames of visual details,
    and that's a "gross exaggeration" for you?

    It seems to me a "gross exaggeration" to rant against
    any "violation" of your sacred space of the 21X9 frame.
    The artistic choice of the director is some kind of school
    bully taunt and personal affront to your 21X9 religion.

    You can live with surround sounds overhead or coming
    from behind your couch, right? That is a total "violation"
    of the sacred picture frame before you at the 12'o clock
    position. Arguably, that sound from behind you should
    shake you out of the captive storytelling of your beloved
    21X9 frame. Yet you welcome (I suppose, you keep
    installing more speakers around you) the expansion of
    the sound field beyond the flat plane of the TV picture
    frame.

    So with sound, the storytelling space is all around you.
    There are no boundaries to that experience. Yet with
    picture, there is a boundary that you draw. And any
    director who employs this artistic device, it is an
    invasion to you, an act of war.

Thanks for reminding me? I hate it with the fury of a thousand suns. If Dunkirk is released in schizo-aspect, I swear I'll invent a cover for the tops and bottoms of my tv screen to preserve the ratio.
    Seriously, based on how "fragile" the "entry into the world,"
    the world of the movie you're watching, wouldn't every
    rear speaker sound transport you out of the film, and
    you're back to sitting in your living room watching a movie
    on your couch? Thanks rear speakers, for reminding me.
    Why no fury of a thousands suns for that? It's because
    we adapt. We the audience aren't fragile. The storytelling
    experience grows and we adapt. Our ears become trained
    to remain immersed in the movie-world when explosions
    blast behind us. Our eyes can adapt to the 21X9 frame,
    and when the director wants to immerse us with more
    height, our eyes can also adapt to the 16X9 frame. We
    aren't fragile, we are adaptive. And our lives are richer
    for it. Well, our lives as story-watchers, can have a richer
    viewing experience.

    Movie was visually stunning. Sadly, that's all I liked about it. I was very bored the first hour.

    I was bored the second hour. I don't care for the drama in these types of movies and while the first half was funny, the second was not very.

    Weirdly I felt that way about the first movie, and loved this one. The drama in the original didn't move me and I get bored in the middle. I liked this one much better, I think it's the Kurt factor, plus more Michael Rooker. I foresee it having a higher rewatch value than the first.

    Does anybody want to sell me the 3D disc of your 2D/3D/4K combo pack? I imagine there are a handful of people who wanted the pack for the 4K content but don't give a care in the world about three-dimensional viewing. Eh?

    Saw this blurb on Digital Bits Facebook page:

    "Heads-up Guardians fans: If you've purchased the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 4K Ultra HD disc, digital codes redeemed starting on 9/9 will now port over to VUDU in 4K. If you've already redeemed your code before that, contact Disney Movies Anywhere to see about getting them to upgrade your copy. Their customer service phone number is: 1-855-347-3722"

    Redeemed my Best Buy 4K Steelbook code today on DMR site, went to verify on Vudu, yes, it says UHD.
    The redemption site on the card insert gives you a pretty site but nowhere to enter the code, lol.

    Glad you guys already reported the great news about 4K VUDU streaming being included. FYI, I also updated the 4K Ultraviolet Headaches article as well --

    I just purchased Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at Best Buy and when I redeemed the code at Vudu, it came up as HDX. Called Disney Customer service and I was on the phone for about 20 minutes with the rep trying to link my DisneyMoviesAnywhere.com account with Vudu, with no luck. (She was going to give me the UHD version on Vudu.)

    I was CRAZY upset (as were many other people) that Dolby Vision wasn't included on the UHD Blu-ray. Hard to believe they would pull that stuff, isn't it?
