Fabulous movie!

Question: Will it change your enjoyment at all on Blu Ray?

I am not a videophile, so I am curious. I may lack the love in that regard.

Do you pick up better nuance or get more pleasure from a flick if it's Blu Ray vs. 'regular ray?'

As a P.S.....I have seen a few things on Hi Def or Blu Ray that looked so bad in the higher definition format, it detracted from my enjoyment - too much definition that made things look less good.

Anyway, put me in the column of Pulp Fiction fan boys!

It's the Apocalypse Now! of its genre.

Of all time? Then what are you going to do with Citizen Kane, The Magnificent Ambersons (even with the studio ending), Touch of Evil, Seventh Samuari, La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2, The Third Man, Chinatown, The Seventh Seal, Persona, Vertigo, Dr Strangelove, 2001, Fargo, Goodfellas, or even Manhattan?

I like the movie very much, but I can't place it above any of the titles I've listed.

I haven't even seen half of these...or more. Saw Citizen Kane. Didn't blow me away at all. Dated, I guess.

I suggest watching it with the Roger Ebert's talk over. Frequently younger people (often post-baby-boomers) will watch it and say they don't see what the big deal is. Part of the reason is that so much of the innovation of the movie became the norm for filmmakers after Citizen Kane. As Ebert says the has done dozens of frame by frame analysis of the movie over the years and he still finds somethings new and fresh it in.

I think it's the best movie ever made. So does the AFI, it has won the best film ever made title by international film critics for decades. You can find it's admitted influence from almost every major director from Spielberg, to Scorsese. Name your favorite film then try to research its director. I can guarantee the director will talk of their admiration for the movie. It is simply the fountainhead of the art of film.

This really is an awesome movie, isn't it?

Not that I consider Ebert to be the end all be all, but if you asked him the what's the best movie of all time he'd correctly say Citizen Kane. But if you asked him the most fun to watch it would be The Third Man.

***SPOILER ALERT*** I think the appearance of Orson Welles in the doorway is one of the true magic moments in film.

Fair enough, it's a different way of viewing it. I'm in love with Teen Wolf, FFS, so I can't bang on too much, although I'm a reasonable film buff for my time, I s'pose.
