Summary: What a beautiful film. I haven't seen a lot of movies from last year, but this one is surely to stay near the top of my list. The acting was brilliant, Douglas deserved all of the accolades that he won. Damon probably deserved them as well. The greatest surprise of the film, though, was seeing Rob Lowe with a giant mop on his head. Amazing! Everything about this film screamed excess, from the colors, acting, clothes (which were great) and their homes.
Excerpt: I rented the BD (lucky me) so I didn't have to go through the hassle previous unsatisfied costumer (gonzostick) went through. I couldn't play it on my standalone player, nor on my new expensive laptop which I bought especially to play BD-s when I travel. I took it back the same day and they told me that yes, 3 out of 5 couldn't play it. I'll take the advice of gonzostick and I'll stay away from HBO BD-s in the future.
Summary: Based on the autobiography, the film explores the relationship between Liberace and his six-year relationship with young lover Scott Thorson. This movie has outstanding acting and a good cast.
DO NOT BUY THIS DISC IF YOU OWN AN OPPO-BDP-83 Blu-ray player... IT WI

Excerpt: I first saw this movie on HBO when it was premiered, nationally. I ordered a copy of this great movie on a Blu-Ray disc. I put it in my Oppo BDP-83 player, and got through all the copyright warnings and the ad clips, then, clicked on PLAY in the movie menu and my player locked up. I tried playing on other Oppo players of the same generation, without any success. Then, I took it to a friend's house who has a new Oppo 105 series player. It played fine on his player.
Excerpt: And the award for Film that made me smile the most so far this year goes to… So, after admitting that Side Effects would be his last film before going into retirement, one of my favorite directors Steven Soderbergh did the most logical thing and… made another movie. Well, putting the fact aside that it came out of nowhere, Behind the Candelabra is fortunately one of Soderbergh's best films.
