My Thoughts:
I did watch this one at the theatres in 3D. I still enjoyed it just as much this time around. It has fun and likable characters and a fun story. Too bad that they didn't put the movie additionally as 3D on this Blu-ray (they did this with Coraline). There is a bonus short which they put on as 3D. Although the 3D for home cinema is far from the current technology in the theatres, I was surprised how good the effect can still be archieved on a television. Only the colors are horrorable because of the green/red filtering.

Leave Her to Heaven, a review by Rick




Leave Her to Heaven

Hollywood Legends:
Gene Tierney
Cornel Wilde
Vincent Price


Overview:
This film won the Oscar® for Best Cinematography (Color) and received three other Academy Award® nominations: Best Actress for Gene Tierney, Best Sound Recording, and Best Art Direction/Interior
Decoration (Color).

Based on the best-selling novel by Ben Ames Williams, ‘Leave Her to Heaven’ is a stylish psychological thriller starring Gene Tierney as Ellen, the stunningly beautiful wife of handsome writer Richard Harland, played by Cornel Wilde. Ellen panics as her perfect marriage unravels and Harland’s work and invalid brother demand more and more of his attention. Her husband becomes unnerved by her compulsive and jealous behavior. And when the people close to him are murdered, one by one, it is obvious that this dream marriage has become a full-fledged nightmare.

My thoughts:
This is the movie that crapped out on me last week. It looked like it was going to be a good one though. Gene Tierney (who is gorgeous BTW) was just starting to show her psychotic side.  I had to skip 2 chapters on the DVD to get it to play so I could have finished the movie. What I would have missed was Tierney’s complete unraveling and that I do want to watch.

I’ll watch it again, I just have to get a new copy (or try Sébastien's suggestion). From what I saw it was going to be an enjoyable movie.

My Rating: Right now I have to rate it as a  :shrug: I did see enough to make me want to know what happens next, so as of now I am recommending it.

A good episode focusing on Dief. I like it that they bring up the possibility that Dief being a wild animal could really be dangerous.
