#3
And this is Fincher's dullest film. OK, not great or blu-worthy.
#4
I really liked it!
#5
anti-climatic film, but not a bad price.
#6
This film is awesome, I'm really tempted to buy it, in fact I think I just might.
#7
Good price but good luck getting anything from Zavvi, I have 3 orders outstanding with them and none have arrived yet.

I ordered the Zodiac blu-ray on 17/11 and still nothing, phoned them up yesterday to query and said it was despatched but I have to wait 10 days from despatch. This is because royal mail are now in christmas period, so the normal 5 day delivery time is extended to 10 days and they can't query anything till then.

Oh and I ordered Iron Man on 19/11 (it was in stock at the time), queried this and they said that it hasn't even been sent yet.

I asked why it takes so long to even send out stuff in stock and she said she didn't know but "you should have them in time for Christmas"!!!!!:whistling:

Absolutely amazing film, dunno about anyone else, but the extras alongside the film are perfectly complimentary, and add to the "who actually was the Zodiac" stuff that the film makes you really interested in.

Add tot hat it's a bloody lovely image and audio, and Fincher's single best film still.

"who actually was the Zodiac" stuff



I read an article recently which mentioned Richard Gykowsky, there is only circumstancial evidence connecting him but he does look a lot like the composite sketch.

I'm pretty interested in buying this film, but could someone help me with a little information...?

According to this review, which is completely full of praise for the film: http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/840/zodiac.html

It says it's a two disc set, with a bunch of extras on the second disc.

I've looked for this film at a number of websites and they all says it's just one disc.

Do we still get the following added on material:

# Director's Audio Commentary -- David Fincher provides a comprehensive guided tour through the genesis of 'Zodiac,' detailing his intentions, his research, and his deviations from the actual events. I was impressed with his attention to detail in each scene and imagine it was quite easy for the cast and crew to buy into his vision. Fincher has a quiet reverence in his voice anytime he talks about Avery, Graysmith, and Toschi. It's clear from his comments that he truly felt connected to their self-destructive obsession. This is a great starting point for anyone tackling the full set of features.
# Cast and Crew Commentary -- Author James Ellroy, writer James Vanderbilt, producer Brad Fischer, and actors Robert Downey Jr. and Jake Gyllenhaal supply an additional commentary track that rarely encroaches on the information in Fincher's track. For the most part, the group has entirely different stories and points of view. As an added bonus, the conversational nature of the large group commentary keeps things interesting. The actors tend to keep the track light, Fischer throws in some excellent tidbits, and the writers give a fascinating dissertation on adapting the story for film. This is a wonderful track that shouldn't be missed.
# Zodiac Deciphered (HD, 54 minutes) -- Once again, I was pleased with the lack of repetition. This documentary doesn't feature any interviews with Fincher (he merely appears here and there in behind-the-scenes footage), but his commentary already establishes his thoughts on every aspect of the film. Instead, screenwriter James Vanderbilt takes center stage and sets about exploring the way the actual events were recreated for the film. A series of interviews reveal the excruciatingly thorough research, the on-set attention to detail, and the cast and crew's determination to make the film something unique.
# The Visual Effects of Zodiac (HD, 15 minutes) -- This featurette covers the subtle CGI work used to enhance the authenticity of key scenes. To be honest, I hadn't noticed that CGI was employed in the film, so I was particularly intrigued by this one.
# Previsualization (SD, 6 minutes) -- The only standard definition supplement in the bunch (note the lack of an "HD" indicator on the back cover), this featurette compares a handful of animatics to the scenes that appeared in the final film.
# This is the Zodiac Speaking (HD, 101 minutes) -- This feature length documentary is a monster, packed with more information than one person can possibly take in with one viewing. It includes dense procedural summations, a tour through the Zodiac case, and interviews with survivors and investigators involved in the case. This is an intricate tapestry of information that is worth the price of the disc alone. If you watch nothing else, spend time digging through this one.
# Prime Suspect: His Name Was Arthur Leigh Allen (HD, 42 minutes) -- This is another informative documentary that focuses on the prime suspect in the Zodiac killings. Another top notch component in the package.


But it's all just on one disc, not two? :?

If mine has finally been delivered when I get home I'll post to let you know, but I assumed that it did have all those special features. Fingers crossed

Hmm, weird...on main page it says this has 12 comments, but my comment above is only the 10th? Have two comments gone missing? :?:

Edit: This is now the 13th comment, apparently...
#13
That was one of the 1st movies me and my gf seen together.

From what I remember its a bit too long and nothing important happens for 40 minutes in the middle of the movie.

Is it just me or do those two look almost identical?

It's possible that they original published it to BD-25 in North America but then remastered it to BD-50 for Europe.

The TrueHD soundtrack would take up a lot of space leaving disc 2 for the extras ...most probably
