I finally got around to watching I Am Legend on Blu-ray this weekend. I watched 2/3 of it yesterday, the last bit today. I didn't really care for the movie overall, but the audio was fun. I agree about the CGI leaving a lot to be desired.

Also watched Beowulf on HD DVD. I wasn't expecting a lot. My only expectation was that I wouldn't like the animation style, and I was right. There's some pretty incredible detail, but the humans still just look wrong, and the fabric wasn't doing so well, either.

Watch The Mist when it comes out on Tuesday. Far better than I am Legend IMO.

"Why is it that every time there's a virus or drug that affects a large amount of people in movies these days they turn into superhuman super strong building climbers?"

I agree totally. That's what ruined the movie for me.

I watched Rattatouile (I know I spelt that wrong) last night and that was a fantastic movie. The sound on it really gave my subs a workout, more so than I Am Legend.

+1 on the comments on I Am Legend (or -1 really). I was very disappointed in the movie. Soundtrack was enjoyable in TrueHD, but nothing worth owning.

you guys have no imagination! So who cares if the plot is kinda weak and the CGI is mediocre? The movie sounds incredible, and I thought it was pretty enjoyable.... :grim:


Oh well- I guess I will go rent mist tomorrow... I have it in my netflix queue but I have 2 movies at home and only have the 2 out at a time plan

wasn't bad...likely one of the most depressing endings I've ever seen but the movie overall was good and the base towards the end i liked much.

Becasue it's a horror/suspense/thriller movie.

It wouldn't be quite the same if your virus-stricken mutant alien zombies were just incredibly sick people that were weak and dying. Those alien mutant zombies with superhuman strength are integral to the plot of these types of films.
