Batman Returns

He's waiting for youApologies for the late post, but it’s been a busy day. There’s really only one title to focus my Sympatico/MSN DVD column upon this week — and it’s “The Dark Knight”.

I say it in the column, but I’m going to say it again, just for emphasis: You really should see this in high definition. Whether that means you buy the Blu-ray disc or you wait until next summer and catch it on pay-cable, that’s up to you … but along with Disney’s “WALL*E”, Warner’s “Dark Knight” BD presentation sets a new state of the art for HD content.

If you’ve been on the fence about the format, it’s time to get off, and get yourself to a major electronics retailer; you can find players for as little as $250, or pick up a PS3 — still the best Blu-ray player on the market — for $400.

That flatscreen HDTV you bought a couple of years ago? This is what it’s been waiting for.

  1. Aaaaargh! Sorry, this comment is off-topic for this post – although Dark Knight IS one of the 3 movies I missed on the big screen this year (I’m 1 of the 12) that I’m saving for Christmas day in my jammies in front of the TV (the others are Tropic Thunder and Wall-E). And yes, I wasted one of my big screen outings this year on X-Files..I am truly ashamed.

    I know I’ve commented on the downtown vs. Scarberia thing before, and you’ve explained, but allow me to briefly vent. I checked what was playing where on the off chance I could afford to go out to a movie this week and all 3 that I want to see – Slumdog Millionaire, Frost/Nixon, and Milk – are all downtown…not one of them is in Scarborough. Two of these are considered major acting Oscar contenders and I’ve read Slumdog Millionaire has an outside shot at Best Picture.
    I repeat…AAAAAARGH!

  2. Yeah, but all three of those will be expanding over the next couple of weeks. It’s not like they’ll never play in your area, they’re just in limited runs at the moment.

    Hell, “Frost/Nixon” is playing on exactly three screens in North America right now, and at least you’re in driving distance of the sole Canadian venue. Think of how people must feel in Calgary.
