    Babel (Inarritu) is the greatest I've ever seen--visually incredible from close-ups of the characters to sweeping panoramas of diverse landscapes and citiscapes.

    I've never seen it, but I recall the 1985 film, "Out of Africa," being promoted as a visually compelling film.

    Anyone seen it? Anyone with an opinion?

    I always liked the images in Evil Dead 2, but maybe that isn’t highbrow enough for this thread ☺️

    Really didn't expect to see this, when I did a thread search, but there it was, all alone, until tonight.
    I have loved this film since seeing it in the theater at the end of our Chicago block.

    It is a good movie with a great cast and is visually stunning. It deserved to do better than it did at the box office.

    While I fully understand that Hollywood prefers to remake movies, rather than making movies, I'm puzzled about this one?

    I was always under the impression that they would remake movies that were financially successful in the first place?

    I saw a little bit of Cheyenne Autumn on TCM today, and it was definitely in HD. It looked notably better than the DVD (which I have), and still looked better in spite of Comcast having recently downgraded their signal from 1080 to 720p.:realmad: I also noticed that the very first scene of the two Indians walking toward the camera, which on the DVD had a bit of a stuttering effect in the picture, was fixed on this HD transfer.
    Shot in Super Panavision 70, it would shine on Blu-ray. I've seen much worse than this TCM transfer on Blu-ray, so why not release it. Even the DVD was transferred from the 70mm elements versus a 35mm print-down. It was John Ford's last western, and of course shot in scenic Monument Valley.
