Les Adventures de Chatran, obviously. The Mechanical Bride is one I'd see because that nonsense blows my mind. I've watched several documentaries on men living with dolls.

Resolution seems alright.

Chatran looks good but it's dubbed in French with no English subtitles.

I imagined it was like "The Bear" and the language didn't matter.

I want to watch "Singham" like yesterday.

And probably Toad Road. Definitely Toy Masters. The Tall Man, maybe.

Switched out the Mechanical Bride and Inbred for Jackpot and Toy Masters.

I had to skip Singham due to illness, but I ordered the Blu-ray, even though it's apparently not as good as the original Tamil version.

I watched Singham on Blu-ray and the film delivers on all the promises of the trailer! 5/5

I'll get my hands on it. I've got "The Raid" waiting, I just haven't had a chance to watch it.

I appreciated The Raid, but I didn't like it. The endless brutal fight sequences were fun for a while but they get tiresome 2/3 of the way through. Seeing it in a theater with shaky-cam didn't help. It's well made, but it's too dark and dreary for my tastes. Maybe a second viewing on a home screen would bring me around.
