Anyone here succumbed to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray?


1977

Do you own or plan to acquire a UHD Blu-ray capable home cinema system?

  1. 1. Do you own or plan to acquire a UHD Blu-ray capable home cinema system?

    • Yes, I do
    • No, 1080p Blu-ray is good enough.
    • No, I'll miss my 3D Blu-ray too much.
    • No, I've only got 720p capability and it looks mighty fine.
    • No, DVD rulez!
    • No, I'm still rocking a Laserdisc player!
    • No, VHS will return (just look at vinyl)!
    • What's UHD Blu-ray?

Well that's assuming they are stickers. I don't know, as I don't own any 4k titles. If they are stickers, are they on the plastic or on the paper inner? If the glue used is the wrong type it can cause damage when trying to remove the sticker. What about boxes? Sometimes removing a sticker can cause a residue to remain, or it can pull off the plastic film coating that may be on the cardboard.

I checked all my Arrows UHDs. They were stickers on top of the outer cellophane.

And you can see in that picture of the Conans, that the box is without the HDR logo.

You and me both, dude.

Cameron's best film, by a country mile.

I've yet to see it since it basically hasn't been available in a great format to watch, so I think this'll be the perfect first viewing.

Now I see it says this is the version he wanted to release, similar to Aliens. Has any of this extra footage been seen before on the DVD release?

Ah I see. And I suppose the theatrical edition is drastically different? I'm hoping a theater near me shows it, because I've wanted to watch this movie for years (I missed it when it was on Netflix a while ago) and have waited for an HD remaster.

The Abyss for me is like Aliens, there's no perfect cut.

 

I prefer the Aliens SE, but hate the Hadley's Hope sequence. Completely unnecessary and brings the dramatic inertia to a halt. But the rest of the restored scenes are gold.

 

I also prefer The Abyss SE, but hate the extended ending with the Soviet/USA war stuff. In fact I think that entire subplot was (mostly) wisely cut out of the theatrical version, as to me it dates the film and detracts from the wonder of the NTI’s. But otherwise, the extended cut is a big step-up.


Small complaints though, these are my two favourite Cameron films. Psyched to see The Abyss finally get the attention it deserves.

I'd love to see it again on the big. I MIGHT even be able to see it where I saw it in 1989!

 

But.. What will be in "higher" resolution than when I saw it ON FILM 30 years ago? Or are they re-doing any of the SE effects?

 

You want to impress me? Get Silvestri to score the "new" scenes.

 

Having this being advertised by way of Avatar made me a little queasy. But I often forget how much I LOVE this movie.

I hate the ending of the SE, but it's got some great character bits sprinkled throughout that weren't in the theatrical. Bud's Dive is better.

Yes, the Special Edition premiered on laserdisc and was also on DVD.  This is a 4k Remaster of that version.

 

It was also shown theatrically. So again, all of the new FX were done for the big screen as well.

The theatrical cut from 1989 is 2 hours, 20 minutes long.  The Special Edition cut from 1993 runs 2 hours, 48 minutes long.  The theatrical is largely just a shorter/quicker version of the same story, not not really "drastically" different in terms of what the story is, just less detailed and with less character development.

 

I think you'll be fine seeing the SE cut as your first time experiencing the story.

I think this is the way to experience every film, and then watch any extended/director's cuts as a mere curiosity.

 

So the DC of Kingdom Of Heaven is nothing but a curiosity while the TC is da shit? I see ...

Haven't seen that. (I mean I have seen the TC)

My point is, even if the theatrical cut is worse than the extended cut, still I would suggest someone to see the theatrical cut first, as this was chosen to be released, for better or worse.

I've only seen the extended cut of DANCE WITH WOLVES.

I'm not sure if I'd even want to see the TC.

 

They made that movie LONGER?!?

Well, that's one of the instances that I think the TC works better.

eg. in the extended cut, you see what happens to the fort, before Costner arrives.

In the theatrical cut you don't, so you are kept wondering and imagining things.

I wouldn't wish the TC of that film on anyone, if for no other reason than they'll be so turned off by it they'll have no desire to invest in an even longer version. The TC is incomprehensible gibberish. I only gave it another chance b/c I love the epic history genre.

 

 

I saw KOH in the theater and was like most people disappointed. I remember mostly blaming the star of the movie because I felt his character didn't work. I later read numerous times that the DC made a big difference and that it actually turned KOH into a pretty good movie. That's probably the reason why I decided to watch the DC and I'm glad that I did. It's a different and much better movie now.

Love Dances with Wolves, in both versions.  The DC in particular is an incredibly immersive experience, but in this case I can't say I have a preference, because the TC is already a masterpiece and perfectly told story.

 

Is there anyone who doesn't love DWW?

I found the reuse of music in the extended cut terribly distracting. If only Costner could have asked Barry to return and score the additional scenes a la LOTR EEs.

 

 

Since this has turned into the extended cuts of movies thread, how is the EC of The New World versus the TC?

To be fair, some of the stuff in the LOTR EE's was actually already composed prior to the theatrical release, and there were some extended scenes that also just used edits.

True but the bulk of the stuff was newly scored.

Not entirely sure/convinced about that actually.

 

Some of that stuff that seems newly scored, seems like it was actually an older version that was revised for the TE. Or was scored concurrently.

 

Especially in the later films.

The upgrade from the TC to the DC of Kingdom of Heaven is the most dramatic upgrade in a DC I've ever seen. It's as close to a completely new film as you're going to get. It went from a film I'd never watch again to one of my favourites.

 

I watched almost all of KoH on Disney+ last year (I left the last 10 mins to go as it was late, not realising my subscription ran out that evening). I massively enjoyed it so I got the DC on Blu-ray but I've never actually watched it. However, every single thing I've read about it concurs with your view that it's much better than the already excellent TC.

I have seen only the extended cut. Ha!

Because the TC hadn't been released on blu-ray at that time I think...

I will wait for screenshots because I don't trust Cameron (these could be a DNR mess like T2)!

What do you make of the trailer?

I don't see a speck of film grain. But that could be due to the youtube compression, I don't know..

 

Apparently it is indeed due to youtube's compression algorithm, as the uncompressed original 2gb file has grain.
