GHOST IN THE SHELL

2017 has Bring one of best movie never seen since years , I need movie like this , peace and enjoyment for my eyes and yes ,speaking about futuristic AI subjects, I’m one of those people that did not like BLADE RUNNER 2049; this one GHOST IN THE SHELL from Rupert Sanders is far better in my view, has the same charm of Alex Garland ‘s EX Machina and contains unforgettable moments (like the jellyfish scene ) but the experience is boosted starting from a linear well written story(forgivable in some little parts) and  crafted with a outstanding crew  continuing with casting choices, I LOVE Scarlett globally talking as I loved the choices of Juliette Bionche,Takeshi Kitano and the short uncredited cameo of Michael Wincott ;so let’s quote again the special EFX from Weta and others(don’t t forget Art Dept,Make up,Practical and CGI) , the Academy Award Jan Roelfs at Production Design , outstanding Jess Hall BSC Cinematography dealing with Alexa 65 and “Super Panavision 70”  65mm 5-perf film , the bloody Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe in association with Clint Mansell and last but not the least of Course Rupert Sanders Direction(And yes I hate Snow White and the Huntsman) so If you HAVE NOT GIVE YOUR CONSENT at Theaters please take your copy of BLU RAY everywhere and Enjoy the outstanding Experience of GHOST IN THE SHELL.

Scarlett Johansson plays Major in Ghost in the Shell from Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures.

HEAT BLU RAY

2017 Is going to be memorable, finally Warner Bros./Regency/Forward Pass/20Th Century Fox Release an Outstanding HEAT DIRECTOR DEFINITIVE EDITION Blu ray, in this post some tips and how deal with that
The white cover is the UK version REGION BUPC Bar code 5039036075992 this version is “.. Pristine Restoration personally supervised by Michael Mann ” or better this new one features remastered video from a 4K scan supervised by himself,it also contains some great new and recent extras(check Amazon or other sites for understand what I mean)

The black cover is the US version REGION A or region 1UPC Bar code 024543271321 and also this version is “.. Pristine Restoration personally supervised by Michael Mann ” or better this new one features remastered video from a 4K scan supervised by himself,it also contains some great new and recent extras(check Amazon or other sites for understand what I mean)


Meanwhile in Italy CG home Video (Cecchi Gori) is going to set a Start UP (19 June 2017) for release an Italian version of the Blu Ray,saving a great work at dubbing soundtrack using Giancarlo Giannini(Al Pacino) and Ferruccio Amendola(Robert De Niro)and I hope at least featuring also English original language and subtitles (Italian and English),I dont’know which master are going to use but is a step far from the zero of these years in Italian home video market,however for any tests in BLU RAY quality matter CHECK HERE

 

Off topic; Last but not the least enjoy my Mixcloud about the rest of music used on HEAT , I called HEAT B SIDE and I think is ” ..a great research for show the great tastes and Musical Genius of Michael Mann!”
