No Country For Old Men
Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen

Winner of this year’s Oscar for Best Picture, as well as for Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, No Country For Old Men is not only critically acclaimed, but one hell of a good flick.

The story begins with hunter Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin, The Goonies, Planet Terror) coming across a drug deal gone wrong out in the desert. He finds a case filled with about two million bucks, and soon finds himself being tracked down by a psycho “cleaner” known as Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem, Before Night Falls), who is being tracked himself by Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones, Men In Black).

The Coens love for great dialog shows through in their Oscar winning screenplay, and the flick is shot with the care and beauty that we have all come to expect from a Coen Brothers Film.

The Blu-ray transfer is sharp, pristine, and looks fantastic even running at 1080i (which is all my current TV can muster), and the audio is equally awesome, with this disc giving us a near perfect PCM 5.1 Uncompressed track, as well as a slick sounding 5.1 Dolby Digital track.

Unfortunately the bonus material is lacking, including only three little featurettes where the actor sit around masturbating about what great Directors the Coen Brothers are and how great the material was. Pretty standard fluff really.

The conclusion is No Country For Old Men gets a Four out of Five for the flick, and a Two out of Five for extras. For those of you ready to start a Blu-ray collection, go out and get it! Now! I command you!
