Hey, Kids, how was your weekend? Mine was rather uneventful. The hubby and I didn’t really have any travel plans, and he’s been preoccupied w/his impending engine swap, so he was busy with that. I, on the other hand, was busy being a couch potato. *sheepish grin* Well, on Friday night we bought the HD-DVD box set of the Ultimate Matrix Collection, essentially duplicating the 10-odd-DVD box set we got for Christmas a couple years ago. 😛 But let me say, after watching The Matrix in HD-DVD, I would say that the repurchase was well worth it! The colors & fine details really showed off what a great HD-DVD remastering should look like. Also, the sound was great. I haven’t watched any of the other movies yet, or the Animatrix episodes, but I’m sure they’ll all look spectacular. I can’t wait to buy the HD-DVD versions of the Harry Potter movies, or of Heroes!
We did watch a couple other movies this weekend — Deja Vu and Children of Men. Deja Vu was pretty good, if a bit hokey. Children of Men (in HD-DVD) was a bit of a disappointment in a couple ways. The HD-DVD transfer wasn’t anything special. And the story wasn’t really my kind of story. I thought the cinematography was very good, and there was a powerful scene near the end, but I just wasn’t into the story.
The rest of my weekend was kind of boring. *shrug* I didn’t have a lot in mind that I wanted to accomplish, so I didn’t really accomplish anything. *smirk* Oh, well! At least I sort of got caught up on sleep & some chores. 🙂
