Great movie, worthy watch if you like open-ended films,
This review is from: The Fountain (Combo HD DVD and Standard DVD) (HD DVD)As a Aranofsky fan, I was pretty bummed when this movie was cancelled the first time (Brad Pitt left the project). So I was glad when it was resurrected, but for some reason or another I didn't see it at the theaters. I finally have this on HD DVD, and it is intriguing, imaginative, and it has some of the most dazzling images I've ever seen. I won't go over the plot, but I will say that it is basically a love story mixed in with the search for immortality. You might want to watch it two to three times to soak it in. The story lets you draw your own conclusions, but if you think about it, you will learn the meaning behind the ending. Overall, its a great movie,though it's not for anyone who doesn't like to be challenged by their entertainment.
As for the HD DVD, I give the PQ a solid 4.5 out of 5. There are many amazingly sharp images throughout, some of the best on the format, particularly the Mayan and spaceship scenes. The soundtrack fits in perfectly and is quite amazing as well. A worthy purchase.

As a teacher in Seoul, Korea, I do not have the opportunity to see all of these movies nor to know of their existence. Now I have something to refer to.
