The only time "colorization" makes sense:

I hope it gets a wider release.

I love this project. Cannot wait to see it.

Still waiting for something to knock "Senna" off the top of my all-time best documentary list. Maybe this will be the one...

I heard the director Peter Jackson talking on the radio about how he made it. Sounds like a lot of hard work he put into it. I look forward to seeing the colourisation of the WW1 footage. I probably won't see it until it's aired on TV on November 11th.

Oh wow, they're airing it on UK TV so soon after the theatrical release?

It's probably more impressive in the cinemas especially when it breaks into widescreen. I saw it last night on TV. Unbelievable. I've rated in 9/10 but I feel mean for not voting it a full 10.

I'm jealous. I'm keeping an eye out for when I can get to see it over here. I'm sure there will be a blu-ray soon at least.

I notice that IMDb have got 2 release dates for this film in the US. 17th December and 27th December. Both dates are followed by (Fathom Events) in brackets. I don't know what Fathom Events are. But I hope you get to see it soon.

I saw it on a tiny screen on a British Airways flight. Some powerful stuff in spite of the medium I was watching it on and the fact that I was exhausted. Up there as one of my top documentaries. No talking heads, no modern-day voiceovers telling me what to think...
