Leviathan is an entertaining popcorn movie
on 13 November 2015
I first owned this film on VHS, and it was a favourite of mine then so when it appeared on DVD I got that as well without hesitation, although that was quite some time afterwards I must add; you often have to wait a long time for some films to appear on DVD and Blu-Ray ...and then some never ever do. Anyhow, Leviathan is one of my favourite 'popcorn movies' along with other titles like The Abyss, Deep Rising, and The Sphere etc. Some still haven't made it to Blu-Ray yet, sadly. I pretty much like anything underwater and alien really and this ticks all the boxes! I never really get bored with watching these types of films and so can revisit them quite regularly.
Now all TVs are HD and above I try and find films I particularly like watching on Blu-Ray to enjoy the best viewing and listening experience, but as many of you will know not all these types of movies have been transferred to DVD, let alone Blu-Ray. So when they do become available on Blu-Ray I usually jump at the chance of getting them. Unfortunately the Blu-Ray I recieved of this particular film wasn't as described on Amazon so I was unable to play it when it arrived from the US seller supermart_usa. The disc was region A, although the description clearly lists it as All Regions, so of course it wouldn't play on any of my players. Darn and blast it! Anyway, this is a warning for anyone thinking of buying this from supermart_usa and wanting an All Region disc. Save yourself the headache (and it will be, trust me) and look elsewhere. That's what I'm going to do.
Anyhow, Leviathan is an entertaining popcorn movie. Just judge it on what it is and not what it isn't or should be.
