Say as much or as little about it as you like.

Mine just happened to be 'The Incredible Hulk'.

I started watching Benjamin Button but had to abandon because I was flying to the otherside of the world next day and needed some shuteye. I go home tomorrow so maybe I can give it another shot at the weekend but if the weather is as good as I'm lead to believe - I'll be in the park instead.

What did you think of Hulk Mr Aston? I'm a big fan of Ed Norton and he still managed to bring the best out of the movie for me.

Is the transfer of Crouching Tiger as bad as House of flying daggers? I hope not!

Last night I watched Batman Begins in HD - thought it was amazing - I wish I had seen it before The Dark Knight, then The Dark Knight might have made more sense to me. The problem I had with this film is that I had to have the volume on as high as it would go, and could only manage to hear it then. What am I doing wrong - the DVD player is the new Sony can't remember the number with a Phillips HD TV set? I am a pensioner and not technical.

Kathy - you may find changing settings for audio output will help. I don't know about that particular model, others will know better, and will probably help. If they don't answer here, you could try starting a new discussion. Hope that helps!

usual re the Incredible Hulk - I thought it was very good. I especially liked the low-key 'fugitive' beginning. Nothing too cool or flashy, very 'old school' SF blockbuster. And as you say it owed a lot to Norton, who is great - committed without being either 'over-intense' or 'grave'. I'd like to hear what you think of BB when you get around to it...

Nice to hear what you've all been watching, carry on...

Am I allowed 2? My children are away to a school camp this week, so I've watched two in the last two nights, both for the first time.

Last night I watched 3.10 to Yuma. It dealt with some of the classic Western themes, great scenery, some good cameos, but the developing relationship between the rancher and the baddie was a bit unfeasible. Very well shot with some very good detail.

The night before I watched L4yer cake. Brilliant film! A less bulked-up or toned Daniel Craig, with some really good acting, I particularly liked Michael Gambon. A film that didn't take itself too seriously. Good use of locations, almost made me feel like a weekend in London.

Both well worth watching in their own way, with Layer cake clearly preffered by me.

I watched The Wrestler. Great film and it looked very good on Bluray. A bit grainy, but then thats the style it was shot in.

I fully enjoyed the Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and I was amazed that even for this film, it really mattered to watch this in HD with all the lush colours and details and the wonderful music. Even the Warner Bros logo consisting out of buttons was marvellous. Next, will be Nature's great events (looks spectacular when I checked a few minutes), Event horizon and Wall-E when I've finished my paper.

La Vie En Rose (La môme -2007) - brilliant performance by Marion Cotillard and stunning soundtrack; notably the original recordings of Edith Piaf. English subtitles.

The Bourne Identity. It has a great transfer for a film at least 7 years old.

Celine Dion, "A New Day" Live In Las Vegas. totally amazing in blu-ray and knocks me out everytime. The last "movie" I watched was Bee Movie.

I say the first Batman movie last. I Got the anthology for fathersday last week. Some of the special effects did't look that special in HD.

No, it's pretty good actually. Unfortunately they used the 'dumb' subtitles instead of the theatrical ones, but that's not a total disaster. The audio is the real highlight though.

Saw 3 this weekend:

2001 - great transfer, great movie but wtf was that ending all about?

6th Day - the film is a bit rubbish but I like Arnie films and the transfer is impeccable. Really good.

AvP - Love the movie and the blu-ray was not bad at all. Much better than upscaled DVD but not perfect.
