CM&C:LVIII 東京物語

“Isn’t life dissapointing?”

“”Yes, nothing but disappointment.”

Tokyo Story. Yasujirô Ozu. 1953. ★★★★★☆

This is officially the best movie in the world ever, apparently. Even so, it’s pretty good. The ending was all boo-hoo.

Resident Evil. Paul W.S. Anderson. 2002. ★★★☆☆☆

There’s a lot to like about this movie.  It has a certain charming, mawkish amateurishness.  But…

CM&C:LIV The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Peter Jackson. 2013. ★★★★☆☆

I tried ripping this 3D Bluray with makemkv.  After duckducking for hours, I determined that makemkv makes a “stereoscopic” full resolution file — just like what’s on the Bluray.  Which makes sense.  But there’s no software to convert that to something that anything can play under Linux.  Like SBS (side by side) or the like.

So I got it from alternate sources.  Just like in the good old days, when DVDs wouldn’t play under Linux.  Because of “copy protection”.
