Not only is the book selling like crazy right now, but Screen Archives Entertainment has 1984 on blu.  One of those only 3000 copy runs.

Does anyone have any information on this...

..specific release? I've searched and googled all of the places and ways I know how and it's hard to find out exact specs on it. I THINK it might be a Korean release. I just need to know if it's Region A compatible and has English subtitles. Honestly, from what I HAVE found...I think it is and does....but I'm just not certain enough to pull the trigger. Those are the only two requirements. Anyone with any concrete info would be much appreciated..

What's different with that release vs other releases?

 

Love that movie.  David Lee Roth vs werewolves....how can you go wrong?

I can't locate anything about that. All the good Brotherhood of the Wolf releases with the director's cut is region B.......you really need to become region free. Your life will be so much better. That is of course if you measure life that way and not like say having a family or something stupid like that.

A perfect storm of Region A, English subs, price and availability.

If the first two points are legit, anyways..

I'm starting to really lose hope that 4k Blu-Ray will ever have a decent library.  

post #6558 of 6569

I'm honestly not keeping up, have they already been producing 4k blu rays and players??

 

Edit: Ah, been looking them up. UltraHD Players going for 500 bucks. Jesus. Guess it makes sense, though. 

post #6559 of 6569
I didn't even know it required a totally new player..
post #6560 of 6569
I'm sure it looks amazing on a 4KTV, I'll never know.

The Xbox One Slim plays UHDs, and it is pretty regularly on sale for $250.

As for the disc selection, it is fine if you want mew releases - which are the films that benefit the most, anyway. The increased resolution is nice, but it is HDR that makes the biggest difference. Most current films are being graded for HDR by the filmmakers, which is the ideal situation. Studios have done an ok job with some catalog titles, but they will fuck some up, undoubtedly.

That being said, 70 mm stuff would look great on UHD. Apparently Bridge on the River Kwai should be released by the end of the year (or at least is rumored to be), so that shouls look fantastic.

What's HDR?

Asking for a Fraid.

My eyes are too old to properly appreciate 4K. Saves me money.

It allows the screen to display a larger range of colors, but the film has to be graded for those colors. Most big films released the last couple years have been getting these grades for theatrical exhibition and/or future distribution for home video and streaming. Even Disney, who has yet to release a 4k disc or streaming title, has been saving HDR 4k transfers for most of their big films since Cinderella in 2015 (though Marvel didn't start until Civil War).

The problem is catalog films have to be re-graded to take advantage of HDR. Without HDR, the 4k difference isn't that noticable. Some people were irritated with the HDR transfer for Goodfellas, but I thought it looked good, and I think Marty approved it when they made the 4k transfer a couple years ago. Some studio will unquestionably fuck up some movie, though.

HDR makes more of a difference than 1080p to 4k. It's stunning.
post #6568 of 6569
Yeah, unless you are sitting 6 inches from your tv or have a 100 inch screen, the resolution difference isn't that notable. You will notice it if you are looking for it, but it isn't immediately apparent; the impact of HDR is.

Here's a quick and handy chart to know whether the difference between 4k and 1080p is generally visible to the human eye.

 

 

Then again, at this point, unless it's a very small bedroom or a tiny smoking room who has a TV smaller than 65 inches in their home?
