5.0 out of 5 stars Different but loveable, 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love and Peace [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Sion Sono has made some fantastically strange films, but they have in general been extremely adult affairs. This one is lacking many of the extremes he's known for but is still incredibly weird in a truly glorious way that's a much easier entrance point to Sono's work than great, but very on the edge, films like Tokyo Tribe and Cold Fish. Plenty to smile and laugh at, some oddly catchy songs (given they're in Japanese) and a heartwarming story about some of life's overlooked outsiders.

1.0 out of 5 stars USELESS, 26 Aug. 2015

The kit handily comes with a flyer stating that there are 2 different kinds of drive mount for the Mac Mini, and if you have one of those kinds then you need to order extra parts to fit it. 3 guesses which mine is!
Why this isn't in the product description is beyond me, and given I've paid for next day delivery on this and a drive from another vendor I'm not exactly pleased that it was a total waste of money!

So, to save you wasting your time as the vendor doesn't care, here's how you check:
Open disc utility and select your existing drive
In the bottom left of the window you'll see a field called 'Connection ID'
If it says UPPER then you're out of luck at this kit won't work
If it says LOWER then you can use this kit.

Awful, lazy vendor, wasted my time and money. Couldn't recommend less.

I was lucky enough to see this in the cinema this weekend, and before the film all three of Kubrick's short films were shown - and a projection error revealed that they were all being screened directly from this disc. While the American release saw only The Seafarers as a special feature we also get Day of the Fight and Flying Padre. After Day of the Fight the projector wasn't blocked off quickly enough and it flicked back to the disc menu, it was clearly this release of the film.
As for the restoration, it's absolutely wonderful, the detail is magnificent and a real surprise for a film of this age and budget, it looked great on the big screen. Whilst far from a Kubrick classic there's still a lot to be interested in here, and Kubrick's eye for photography serves him very well. The acting and script leave a lot to be desired, though there are some interesting ideas toyed with, if the rumours of Kubrick trying to track down and destroy prints are true then you can see why, his next film was streets ahead of this.
I'm very keen to get my hands on the release, but I certainly enjoyed what I've seen of it so far.
