    Great Movie

    |
    Posted .

    While doing an imdb search on JK Simmons came across a movie starring JK Simmons and Miles Teller that I hadn't heard of about an aspiring drummer. Since I play the drums too I thought I'd check it out and I wasn't disappointed. JK Simmons is very intense and I later learned that Miles Teller actually plays the drums so the scenes with him playing don't look fake. A must watch for drummers and jazz fans.

    Excellent movie, but NO DIGITAL!!!

    Posted .

    The movie itself is excellent. However even though the picture of the product says Blu-Ray + Digital, mine came only Blu-ray, no digital. Obviously there are two versions, one with digital and one without. So if you don't mind getting Blu-Ray only then it's a great movie to have.

    Bad case

    I got the movie for a good deal which makes seeing the bad condition of the case kinda make sense. The case was scratched and ripped in multiple places kinda like someone was trying to send of the polish of the case.

    One of my favorite movies now looks and sounds bet

    Didn't come with the slipcover, which was a bit disappointing, but otherwise, this was a worthwhile purchase. This is one of my favorite movies, and its made even better with the outstanding picture quality. The use of HDR fixes the overuse of the gold hue from the previous Blu-ray, creating a picture that improves what was already a detailed and stylish picture. The best part for me however, was the Dolby Atmos audio track. The previous Blu-ray was already loud and bombastic, but this new Dolby Atmos Track is even better. The dialogue scenes are made even more intense with the louder audio, and the music scenes are made even better now that you can hear each instrument in its exact spot on the soundstage. So this eas definitely a great purchase, as it makes me appreciate what was already one of my favourite movies.

    Sweet steelbook and nice quality Blu-Ray

    First of all, this is an awesome film... More importantly, this is a very nice quality Steelbook and Blu-Ray. I don't own many blu-ray steelbooks, but I quite like this one. It's very simplistic, reminds me of teaser movie posters before the actual main one is chosen. I recently got a 4K TV and 4KUltraHD player so I wasn't sure if I should purchase this steelbook or just get the 4K version. I borrowed both from a friend to compare which one I wanted. I'm not sure if my player or TV was upscaling the standard Blu-Ray but it looked very similar to the 4K variant. Went with this version since it's much cheaper and comes with a steelbook. I think for the price you can't go wrong with this steelbook.

    Whiplash is a searing study of abuse and perseverance that's stunningly realized by writer-director Damien Chazelle. Much has been written about J.K. Simmons' blistering Oscar-winning performance as a bullying bandleader who strikes terror in his musicians' hearts and minds, but Miles Teller is equally good, fashioning a riveting, honest portrayal of a driven, tortured, and passionate young drummer whose pursuit of greatness leads him on a bruising, soul-searching odyssey that almost destroys him. A relevant message sure to spark spirited debate enhances this lean, mean, masterfully directed production that's both thoughtful and visceral. Much like its Blu-ray counterpart, Sony's 4K UHD HDR presentation features an excellent video transfer, close-to-reference audio, and plenty of interesting supplements. If you're a fan of this Best Picture nominee, you'll definitely want to see it in HDR and hear it in Dolby Atmos.

    Intense characters (good drama)

    I really enjoyed this fictional story depicting tension between an aspiring jazz drummer student and his demanding/unorthodox music school instructor set in NY. This HD disc is a good value. (I have since purchased a copy in 4K/UHD, but I could have settled with the Blu-ray.) This steelbook arrived in the mail with a dent on the case, but my disc wasn’t at all damaged. At $5.99, I didn’t want to return. That is a risk. An in-store pickup might address the concern of purchasing online.

    This was a great movie—really surprised me. When I saw the slickness of this steelbook I had to go for it. The design is excellent! The spine looks great (it’s a drumstick), really just spot-on all around.

    I saw Damien Chazelle's film "La La Land" before seeing "Whiplash". He is one of the few current directors who deserve all the praise they are getting. While Miles Teller is the lead actor, J.K. Simmons as the music teacher steals all the scenes. Worth checking out, in my opinion.

    This is a movie I would consider somewhat frustrating on certain levels as there are parts that will definitely leave you angry, uncomfortable, and awe struck all at the same time.

    The audio track on with this movie is incredible, coupled with the sharp picture, you'll be engaged throughout the whole experience. I'm not really a fan of the SteelBooks since the case is different from the standard, but my local BB didn't have the regular copy in stock, so paid a little extra for the SteelBook rather than waiting.

    One of the Best Movies of the Last Decade

    The amount of self-inflicted sacrifice is intended to shape and deliver who we want to be. In certain areas there has to be some level of talent involved, in others it simply takes determination. In Whiplash we assume there is an inherent skill to our protagonists ability that has been present since he picked up sticks at a young age, but it is the amount of hard work and sacrifice that will prove whether he will turn out to be complacent or one of the greats. Andrew Neiman (Miles Teller) has plenty of ambition, but it is his drive that will turn the story of his life into something people might discuss around a dinner table decades after he dies. As a child who was not given everything on a silver spoon and certainly not conditioned to believe anything I touched would turn to gold failure in certain areas became an expectation. Our present, cushioned society makes these truths indiscernible and so we garner generations where all that is expected is instant gratification with little endeavor or commitment required. Whiplash, while clearly drawn from personal experiences and small truths, is also and maybe even more of a commentary on if there is a line to be drawn in breaking down these barriers of reassurance. In what will likely be one of if not "the" defining performance of his career J.K. Simmons as conductor Terence Fletcher tells Andrew that there are no two words more harmful in the English language than, "good job." Fletcher has a philosophy that genius is not blessed upon an individual or built through congratulations, but rather because it is pushed to a breaking point where the only thing that matters is to never stop striving to be better. True greatness comes from real pain. Nothing will essentially ever be good enough for Fletcher and it is in this drive to prove him wrong that Andrew is unable to stop. With his second directorial effort Damien Chazelle has crafted a film so in tune with itself and its character arcs that it is nothing short of exhilarating to see unfold. While one should take the literal actions of the film with a grain of salt and look at the bigger, metaphoric implications it is making to get a clearer message of its ideas it nonetheless comes together to deliver one of the best and certainly one of my favorite films of the year.

    The movie itself is fantastic, if you haven't seen it then do yourself a favor and pop it in. The real reason I Purchased this though is for the Steelbook itself, as a collector I take pride in looking at these steelbooks and this one is a pretty awesome one. It's simple but in the best way possible.
