It holds up beautifully.
Shout Factory’s new 4k – a pleasant surprise there – is a mixed bag. The master apparently comes from Canal +.
IMHO, someone cranked the HDR a bit high, making the film an unpleasant viewing experience in projection. Compared to<br />
the Blu-ray, which allows far greater latitude in densities, the 4k has an overall higher resolution, and more obvious grain structure.
In projection, the standard Blu-ray is the choice. On an OLED, the 4k has a nicer overall image, but blacks attack, and are too<br />
heavy. I wish I had an answer for this one. Bottom line, I’d probably pass on the 4k.
Definitely not a release for those who cherish projection.
4k Image – 4 – OLED Panel<br />
4k Image – 3.5 – Projection
Audio – 5 (DTD-HD MA 5.1)
Pass / Fail – Pass
Upgrade from Blu-ray – I don’t believe so
Very Highly Recommended – as a film – not as a disc
