Hanna - 2/10 - What a pile of dog shit. What might be a passable action movie instead proves monumentally pretentious. Prestige director Joe Wright crams the film full of idiotic "artistic" touches: spinning camera angles, off-kilter color, hard cuts, headless dinosaurs, an endless drone of nauseating techno music. Then there's the cast: what's more irritating, Cate Blanchet's King of the Hill-style Texas accent or Tom Hollander's Hogan's Heroes-quality German? And these are actors I usually like. No matter what fancy edits you employ, Mr. Wright, you're still making a teenaged assassin flick.

Hanna is a wonderful film for me. Beautifully directed and quite intelligent. And the score of the Chemical Brothers is fantastic too.
Of course I also enjoyed the acting. It was a pure pleasure to watch in the theatre. 9,5 /10

I'm surprised that you think so low of Hanna, Groggy

Yes, it can, on plasma.

I've never had plasma (and I don't know jack about format wars), but according to one writer from PCMag.com http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2387377,00.asp : in the LCD vs. LED vs. Plasma war.....  the current winner is LED  Tongue

of course, I am sure it all depends on what brand, size, model etc. you get

I have this LG  32" LED http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-32LV2400-led-tv (and I bought it dirt cheap off some dude I know who bought more items on Black Friday than he could sell on eBay  Wink) and it's beautiful  Afro

(I know we're discussing picture quality, but if you're interested in energy efficiency, I have also read that LED costs far less electricity than does LCD, and  FAR FAR less  than plasma. This guy http://www.plasmavslcd.com/plasma-vs-lcd/ says that the LCD costs almost double to run than the LED does, and that the plasma costs almost 3 times as much as the LED does).



cj: is this your first HDTV or just your first LED screen?

Lawless(2012) 9/10. The film Public Enemies wished it could have been. And seeing Jessica Chastain's tits in 4K was a treat. Nick Cave's soundtrack is a real toe tapper: I rushed right home and ordered a copy from amazon.

Both, I sprung for it the day after the Sharp tube died, it was only $240 at Best Buy a 32" screen.

That's not true according to nearly everyone I talked with recently. I even started a poll in a forum. Plasma is still the superior technology if you want the best picture quality, especially if you want to watch mainly movies on it. And when I compared TVs in the shops plasma looked indeed more natural than the LCD/LED stuff.
Only disadvantage is indeed a higher power consumption, but that costs only a fly-shit over a year. And you can't get a plasma beneath 42".

So I have bought me a Panasonic 42 " plasma recently.

Thanks. It's become an incredible chore to find a good movie in a theater these days (everything seems to be sequels or re-makes of sci-fi shit). I'll check this one out

I Thought the Panasonic 42" plasma was discontinued? 1080p right?

Nah, there is a new model since summer. And of course 1080p Full HD.

Got mine for half the price.
