    This Norwegian disaster movie looks pretty compelling.

    Trailer is here:




    Has anyone seen it yet?

    Could be interesting... but a whole movie about a wave? I don't know... This will need some interesting story and/or characters - of which the trailer shows very little.

    The movie was pretty good, and the characters was very likable.
    There are some beautiful visuals, and especially some of those aftermath images is pretty damn haunting.
    Way better than most Hollywood disaster movies, since this one is a bit darker in tone than the usual PG-13 fluff. There is some genuine suspense here.
    When the wave strikes, it's pretty scary stuff, and you actually feel sorry for the ones that you know will die.
    Give it a watch!

    Looks good. It's playing at The Carolina Theater in Durham, N.C. right now. One of my favorite venues, famous for the Retrofantasma horror screenings.

    This is only playing at a single theater in NYC so I decided to try and rent it from an On-Demand service. CinemaNow has it for $6.99 but only in standard-def, which sucks. I'm really reluctant to give out personal info to companies I'm not familiar with. Are there any other services offering this that perhaps tie into my cable subscription?

    I have Charter OnDemand through my cable and it's on there, but that's a regional thing. Amazon has it for $6.99 in HD (I would imagine iTunes does too). If your blu-ray player has wi-fi or you have a gaming system that does, you should be able to stream it through there to your TV the same way you would NetFlix or Hulu.
