HD DVD review: The Fountain

HD DVD
The Fountain gets a decidedly mediocre HD release that doesn’t do its lush visuals justice by any stretch of the imagine. Still, even if it had been graced with the most impressive transfer ever, I would still find it rather difficult to recommend this infuriatingly nonsensical ramble even as demo material. If you like the film, you may find some of the additional bonus materials interesting, but if, like me, you thought it was a pompous load of odd cobblers, there’s really nothing here worth bothering about.

I unsuccessfully try to work out what on earth is going on in my review of Warner’s HD DVD/DVD combo release of The Fountain.

Better? Probably not. More watchable? Definitely.

You see, now you've got me intrigued. Given my analyses of films, I could either a) fight my way to the central message of the film, or b) suffer a mental breakdown trying. Personally I'm too scared to find out.
