Today marks 100 days until DoS is released in some countries. [In reply to] Can't Post

102 for the UK and US, so this is a good time for reflection.

My first viewing didn't have a huge impact on me. I'd spent so many years building up excitement and when I finally saw the film at my local cinema (a really cheap place, slightly out of focus screen only a little bigger than my TV!) I wasn't hugely impressed.

But over time it really does improve! I've watched it several times on Blu-ray and every time I feel a longing to re-watch the HFR version. After seeing it that way, the Blu-ray looks so juddery that I feel compelled to turn on the motion smoothing on my TV, and even then it;s just not the same. Frown

I really hope the trilogy gets a re-release in HFR cinemas. Or that a home HFR format becomes available soon, because it just doesn't feel right to me any other way.
