To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Back in the 50's, the British made a number of modest, charming and gentle comedies (often with Peter Sellers) that weren't LOL funny but kept a smile on your face throughout. Later, Bill Forsyth (Local Hero) managed the same effect. Delightfully humane comedies, with a tinge of weirdness. Now the Canadians have produced several more, e.g. A Dog's Breakfast, and Y.P.F. (which this very much resembles). And , for trivia buffs, the latter all have major links to Stargate: Atlantis. This is, in part, a modest ribbing of small-town life, but is more about relationships (with no treacle). The simulated sex is played for humor, and the nudity is contextual and limited (and if that's a body double in Jewel's big nude scene, I don't want to know that. Ever). Like the other films mentioned, it is pleasantly satisfying If you have been deterred by Amazon's BD-R warning, in case BD-Rs are as inferior to BDs as DVD-Rs are to DVDs, don't be. I haven't seen a BD-R before, and this one has a dark label side which makes it hard to see the data side, but the latter does appear much darker than a standard Blu-ray. There is no indication on the box or disk that this is anything but a Blu-ray, and my Oppo reads it as a standard Blu-ray. The bit rate is between 20 and 30 Mb/sec, like an ordinary BD. The picture is crisp and detailed (and the film has high production values for a small, indie film), and looks beautiful on a big screen. Indeed, if this really is a BD-R, I see why they blocked them from the North American market; you could record far better ones off satellite than you could buy from the studios (with all that annoying garbage like forced previews and time bars, which this disk doesn't have). I don't buy DVD-Rs because they are standard def visual hash, but I won't hesitate to buy BD-Rs if they all look as good as this one.
