Emotional anchor in the film

Watch Rise of the Guardians Online. This is the season that kicked the hit series off, obviously. Season 1, which still ranks among the series’ strongest. A sitcom that is intelligent, witty, and filled with pop culture references, The Big Bang Theory follows two nerdy roommates, nerdy braniac scientists Dr. Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), Dr. Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), and their friends and colleagues Dr. Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) and Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg). They have their usual routines disrupted by he appearance of a hot and somewhat less intelligent girl across the hall from Sheldon and Leonard named Penny (Kaley Cuoco). There’s nothing like The Big Bang Theory on television. It’s title is deceiving in that it implies that it is yet another relationship comedy along the lines of the BBC’s Coupling or How I Met Your Mother, but it is nothing like those.

Watch Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Online. While there are elements of unrequited love and dating (mainly the on again/off again relationship between Penny and Leonard that develops over the course of the series), Big Bang is far beyond that mundanity. It’s quirky, it’s geeky and it’s highly intelligent, focusing more on the interplay between geniuses and their inability to relate to “normal” people, as magnified by the “girl next door” Penny. The 35mm source for The Big Bang Theory arrives on Blu-ray in an AVC/MPEG-4 1080p transfer that looks good, about as good as a sitcom can get in HD. Colors are vibrant, but flesh tones don’t always look as accurate as they can be. Even with the minor flaws, this looks way better than any broadcast version.

Watch Life of Pi Online. The lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz/16-bit) soundtrack is a straightforward sitcom mix with little information in the surround channels beyond the sound of audience laughter. The dialogue is clean in the center channel, but there’s little else going on. Stereo separation is again limited to the laugh track and low frequencies only come to play during the cut sequences. As best as I have been able to determine, season 1 of The Big Bang Theory was shot on film. With one exception discussed below, the image on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray discs for season 1 is clean, sharp, colorful and well-defined, with a fine but natural grain pattern. Fine detail is evident throughout, which is essential for a series that routinely crams its sets with nerd-specific bric-a-brac.

Download Life of Pi Movie. The series is famous for its bright colors, and the Blu-ray image captures this aspect of the production capably. The only episode that looks any different is the pilot, which has a somewhat coarser grain structure than the regular episodes, possibly due to different lighting conditions, or perhaps because of budget constraints. The difference is not so dramatic that it should interfere with anyone's viewing enjoyment; indeed, it might not even be noticeable if the pilot were not juxtaposed with episodes produced later, after the series was greenlit. Warner is certainly to be commended for not applying any sort of filtering or degraining software in an attempt to placate grainophobes by making the pilot look more like later episodes, but thereby sacrificing picture detail in the process.

Watch Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Online. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack isn't called upon to do any heavy lifting, as Big Bang's soundtrack is almost entirely made up of dialogue, which remains clear and centered, and the (no doubt heavily edited) reaction of the live audience before which the show is filmed. The audience is heard to the sides and slightly to the rear. Two specific elements place a greater demand on the audio system. The first is the show's signature theme song by Barenaked Ladies, which is heard during the opening titles and, in an instrumental version, over the closing credits. The sound engages the entire 5.1 system and fills the listening space, with solid bass extension. The second element is the graphic featuring planetary (or molecular) rotation that is used as a transition between scenes.

Watch Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Online. The accompanying audio also reaches out into the listening space with a deep rumble, creating a sonic break to accompany the visual one. If you don't have either a subwoofer or full-range left and right main speakers, you're missing out on some of the highlights of this soundtrack. Fans have waited a long time for the early seasons of The Big Bang Theory to arrive on Blu-ray. Now that they're here, the technical quality is everything fans could have hoped for. As for the quality of the show, there's a reason it became an immediate hit—five reasons, in fact, and that's just in front of the camera. The show hardly needs my endorsement, but I'll give it anyway: Highly recommended. I guess we have been wallflowers at one point or another in our lives, where we prefer to blend into the background, be alone, and observe. It's a comfort zone that we withdraw into, with nobody giving us a second look, and vice versa. For Charlie (Logan Lerman), a deeply buried incident had caused the inevitable change of behaviour, with a constant worry that the real him may not be well liked by peers. So he's quite the aloof kid, and when introduced in the story, is seen writing a letter to an imaginary friend as therapy, confessing his loathe for soon becoming a freshman in high school, under which this story unfolds.

Written and directed by Stephen Chbosky, who adapted the screenplay from his own novel (which was made up of a series of the said letters to that imaginary friend), The Perks of Being a Wallflower plain works, and engages on multiple levels, especially if you had grown up in the 80s and 90s, and would instantly recognize some of the iconic pop culture references used in the books, music, and musicals referenced both in the book origins, and on screen. There's wonderful drama about friendship, and the growing pains in this coming of age tale that had series of episodes that would be easy to identify with, making it seem a little bit closer to our hearts, with an eagerness to embrace it, since it's such a whimsical, nostalgic trip down memory lane. There are elements associated with school life that may likely mirror one's own experience, dealing with first loves and the things we do for them, or those whom we fall in love with out of convenience then find it hard to back out from, the formation of firm friendships, school life from mugging to examinations, inspirational teachers who leave an imprint and encouraging us to fulfill potential, the proms, secret santas, gifts, the silly parties and shenanigans we get into, the extra curricular activities, cheap thrills, vice and fights. And how about those mix tapes as well, where we put together a series of songs for that special someone. The Perks of Being a Wallflower succinctly captured them all with a narrative breeze, without making any seem like overstaying their welcome, and had just enough oomph in them to leave you wanting more. Logan Lerman really shone as the protagonist Charlie, who has a degree of innocence that's ripe for the mild corruption, especially when he hooks up with the brother-sister team of seniors Patrick, aka Nothing (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson). Lerman vividly portrayed his role as the understated heart and soul of the trio, and in their wider clique of friends, who were perfunctory to allow small subplots on various school life experiences squeeze through. He is the emotional anchor in the film, while also grappling with his own inner demons, and shows a tinge of vulnerability, with major struggling with a condition that we'll be privy to in due course of the narrative. And this was a major step up from his Percy Jackson and The Three Musketeers days to showcase some genuine acting chops.
