Akira Kurosawa's Dreams [DVD] [1990] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

5.0 out of 5 stars Kurosawa dreams I would give it Six, 25 Aug. 2012

Kurosawa wonderful collection of his dreams some are haunting like the "The Tunnel" a story of a soldier who lost his army, or "Mount Fuji" a warning of impending doom due to Nuclear science and a "weeping demon".
The other dreams are completely different in style "Sunshine through the rain" is about a boy who sees a foxes wedding and "The peach Orchard" a tale of the cutting down of an orchard. "The Blizzard" is a dream about being lost which is very well done then comes my two favourites "Crows" which is about Vincent Van Gogh brilliantly played by Martin Scrosese and "Village of windmills" a beautiful depiction of a funeral which is full of colour and joy.
The whole disk is a master piece of cinematic genius a fitting disk to be had in anyones collection. The only things to notice is that it's in Japanese with english subtitles but at times you forget the subs because it's so well acted and filmed and that it's region 1 but if you have a player that takes them then get it.

There has been a few misleading comments about New Blood. The first which is strange is about the sound quality, this is crisp and clear, but the unusual thing is, when you start the Blu-ray it's default setting is PCM stereo why this is I have no idea, on Blu-ray you would expect it to be at least in 5.1 which it has an option for, as well as DTS HD. The picture quality came under scrutiny by some people, I find that it is again nice and clear, the only thing I find strange is that on some parts, which I assume are done for the 3D viewers doesn't come off so well in 2D. The song choice is a great range of new and old covering tracks from Car,Melt, So and the new Scratch album. All in all a great Blu-ray running at 162 Mins long, and any Peter Gabriel fan should have as it gives a new slant to his tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boogie, 27 Mar. 2010
This is a Tim Burton through and through. All of the characters have a nice Burton twist, as with the underworld, if you know his work, you know it is going to be coming from a different angle. The story is a combination of Alice and the poem Jabberwoky blended together. There have been some harsh critics of this film, but I believe that what they would like, is a page by page working of the book, this is not Burton's style. The whole film is full of wonderful bright imagery and I just loved the way the Cheshire cat just smokes into life. All I can say is watch it and be amazed at how brilliant an imagination Tim Burton has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Baraka, 28 Feb. 2010
This is one of the most amazing Blu-rays I have ever seen, the images are at times jaw dropingly beautiful and at others somewhat disturbing. Ron Fricke has use 70mm film to capture scene's from all over the globe from a crystal church to people finding rubbish on a tip to sell. This film is awe inspiring and thought provoking at the same time. I have had the DVD of this and I thought it was amazing then, but when I got the blu-ray version it just lifted the whole film. Baraka will not be to everyones taste but if you want to see the world and all it's beauty then this is one to see, even the sad images have a beauty of there own.
