Akin to Warner’s verbiage, here again is an Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
And it’s a very good one.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the premiere of WFRR at Radio City, and the film has stayed with me since then as a unique cinema experience – a rarity in this world of super-hero knock-offs.
It’s as fresh and inviting today as it was back in June of 1988.
And the new 4k is a beautifully produced release.
With effects shots captured in 35/8, it’s beautiful to behold, with an image that remains true after generational loss.
Grain structure, which varies, color, densities, black levels – all beautifully rendered.
WFRR is one of those films for which I remain jealous of those experiencing it for the first time.
An important 4k release from numerous perspectives.
Are all of the little single frame niceties hidden by the animators still intact? Probably not, but I’ll leave that for other to ascertain.
Just grab a copy and enjoy.
