Take the drive; it's worth it.

Make a day of it; eat a good steak, watch the movie, visit a bookstore, get a mani/pedi. You know, treat yourself.

Might not be a bad idea, since have not hardly left my house in almost two weeks.

I didn't have any issues, but I can see pretty good without my glasses on.

The wife and I saw it last night. Not in 3-D though. Not sure if it was supposed to be in 3D, but it had some blurriness along the edges at times, and at first I put it down to the digitalization process, but it might have been because of that.
Kind of surprised this didn't come out last year so it could be up for an Oscar for filming or whatever award they give out for camera work/editing, etc. They did a great job of that, IMHO.
I thought the movie was really good at showing even though wars change and TTPs change, that at the end of the day, a lot of stuff remains the same.
Really showed what they went through day after day after day. And I never realized that the trench system was so complex.
Anyway, highly recommend it and I imagine the 3D version is even cooler.

Watched this yesterday and stayed after the credits to watch the behind the scenes of how the film was restored, colored and sound work. Hauntingly amazing work and great way to tell the story. I put it on par with Ken Burns' level documentaries. Give the film 5/5.

Finally saw it on Amazon. Amazing. When the film first went to color it was a Holy Shit moment.

I don't even want to think about how long it took to do the colorization and do the lip reading so they could add the dialogue, but it's seriously impressive.

Does Amazon have the last part, the interview with Jackson on how they did it?

Just went back and fast forwarded through. If so, I didn't see it.

Pretty cool video about the lady who did the forensic lip reading:
