About this deal

Babylon isn’t a career killer for this young filmmaker by any stretch, but it certainly got away from Chazelle. Exciting, enthralling, magnetic, excessive, grotesque, tedious - Babylon is certainly a unique cinematic exercise. AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM The DC Super Hero’s Action-Packed Adventure Debuts on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12th! I don't think I like it from the trailer, funny enough I'm listening to Sound of Cinema and the just got to playing music from the film and it's just fitting in with Mark in the doing his La la la la la la la bit waving his arms about. Rear and side channels provide excellent ambiance, unique sounds and off screen activity to really resonate and put you in the room for 360 degree experience.

After scoring his Best Director Oscar for La La Land, no one can fault Damien Chazelle for chasing some exciting projects. At just over 3 hours, Babylon is Damien Chazelle's ode to Hollywood that sits beside Sam Mendes' Empire of Light and Steven Spielberg's The Fabelmans, which are two similarly themed films out this month, (anyone would think it was awards season), but this is an entirely different beast to both.It’s a tale told in dark comedic fashion, which does help with its tempo – even though it does begin to stall out in the middle before launching into an almost shockingly bonkers final act. When it works it’s glorious as the audience is allowed to fully revel in these recreations of key moments during one of Hollywood’s most important turning points. There’s value in shock but you can tax any film’s shock value quickly and this film frequently tests your patience for viscera-filled excess. For the week of March 20th, Paramount Home Media Distribution will release Babylon (2022), Dragonslayer (1981) and Red Eye (2005) on Blu-ray and 4K UHD.

The big party sequences are virtually wall-to-wall sonic immersion with an epic war scene proving to be one of the most exciting auditory experiences of the film. Jack is someone who brought audiences to theaters in droves during the silent film era where Babylon begins, but as the film progresses and sound is introduced, he’s someone who finds the transition harder than expected and can’t figure out why. Unfortunately, there’s just too much over-bloated stuff getting in the way that simply pads out the runtime to an almost excruciating bladder-busting length for what is ultimately a parallel-dimension version of Singin' in the Rain. Robbie is superb and continues to just steal scenes in whatever movie she’s in, and here she even gets to crank it up an extra notch or two. The 2160p/Dolby Vision looks phenomenal and with the set pieces, costumes and cinematography being some of the bigger selling points of the film, the fact that they’re all given exquisite treatment here bodes well for those watching for the first time at home.Facial features and texture like make-up brush strokes, wrinkles, freckles, sweat beads, dried dirt/blood, skin blemishes and more come through clear as day. Scoring Babylon – If you thought costumes didn’t get a lot of time, the film’s score gets less than two minutes in this featurette! Deleted/Extended Scenes – Here we’ve got six deleted and extended scenes for those who want to see more of these characters. On the cover we’ve got the film’s main stars in a kaleidoscope-style pattern, which looks gorgeous on the cases solid black background.

Performers here all doing a damn fine job, but there’s a scene with Jean Smart addressing Brad Pitt later in the film that is one of my absolute favorites of the year and really deserves giving her tons of recognition. A film about Hollywood excess is itself a prime example of Hollywood excess with Damien Chazelle’s Babylon. There are a multitude of ways to go here, with posters, scenes from the film, promo shots, or simple scenes from the film, and with Babylon it could’ve gotten even crazier with some sort of ode to Hollywood and film that wasn’t even in the movie.

An elephant offers up what is certainly one of the most unique uses of height space I’ve ever heard… and will likely never hear those sounds again in another movie.

Every ploop, flop, gush, squeak, and schloop is given pinpoint precision placement in the soundscape. Yes, this movie is bonkers, but there is nothing THAT extreme in this that someone who takes in a good well rounded amount of film from other genres and internationally hasn’t seen before. As always, my favourite part of any Steelbook is opening it up and seeing the choice of the interior slip covers. From Damien Chazelle, BABYLON is an original epic set in 1920s Los Angeles led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, with an ensemble cast including Jovan Adepo, LI Jun LI and Jean Smart.com is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Pay4Later Limited, trading as Deko, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 728646). It missed at the box office and it’s not a movie I’d say everyone should run out and see, but it’s worth checking out. Oui, ce film est peut être trop long, mais c’est avant tout un belle déclaration d’amour à l’âge d’or du muet, de la période décadente des années 30, et de son déclin, à l’instar de “il était une fois à Hollywood”de Tarantino, autre excellent film sur le changement d’atmosphère dans le cinéma de la fin des années 60 et la fin de l’utopie peace and love des hippies avec le meurtre de Sharon Tate et celui d’Altamont. That’s the wild ride that was Damien Chazelle’s Babylon just a few months back during the holiday season. If we can live in an era where something like Michael Cimino’s notorious flop Heaven’s Gate can be reassessed as a misunderstood work from a master craftsmen filmmaker, Chazelle will assuredly survive Babylon’s box office bust.
