4.0 out of 5 stars Very fast processing, 19 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The last two bluray players I owned were good in video but slow processing, so for example it took ages for them to respond to switch on, open and load the movie even on the fast boot option. The first one was an older generation Sony, and the second a slightly newer Panasonic but 3D. This Sony BDPS6200 beats those hands down in processing speed. I don't have to wait around for the unit to come on. I just hit eject, load the disc and close and it's ready. The Netflix and Amazon instant and other apps on there are useful if you don't already have a smart TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult and compelling, 18 April 2014
Another almost flawless documentary movie from Werner Herzog. His ability to linger on people and abstract honesty from his subjects is unparalleled. I won't need to go into why the subject is difficult, it doesn't take a genius to work that out, but nevertheless it is compelling viewing without rushing the film. Has to be seen, whether you're a fan of the director or not and bluray is such an excellent medium for it. The scenes of the vast Texas countryside really does frame the question of how such a small town, in a vast state, could repeatedly produce such tragedy?

4.0 out of 5 stars Zodiac ish, 12 April 2014
The movie has the same slow burn feel of the other Gillenhall cop movie, Zodiac. But with a bit more incidental action and some very conflicting moral dilemmas. It's a solid screenplay with solid performances all round. Paul Dano is excellent as always and his presence is there throughout even though he isn't actually on screen as much as you think he had been by the time you get to the end. It's a bluray which I will definitely watch again.
