    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Aliens -- in 4k UHD

    A v odd technical decision, Aliens must be one of the first pre-DI 35mm films that’s been upscaled for UHD from an extant 2K master, when the negative could have been entirely rescanned in native 4K. They must have had their reasons, but i can’t think of any good ones.

    I’ve no idea who that poster is or any tech credentials they may have, but there appears to be assumptions made, without evidence and presented as fact - such as it’s a poor quality 2K upscale. With regard to the colour range, they could be bang on, i’ve no idea, but we do know that the end...

    There is always going to be a balance (or not) between what several types of consumer want, and what the creator wants and does. I wish Aston Martin made a 4WD Vantage. I wish Star Wars OT was available in branching where you could choose some of the changes that were made in the reduxes, but...

    Even if unfixed they score poorly for picture quality by several reviewers, look terrible (for a modern film) to the average viewer and sales tank as a result, causing studios to think “if Aliens flopped on UHD, we won’t release xyz”

    I’m confused. Mr Harris has stated the films look has been revised, he’s said some will object. The director is alive and is behind the change, not only that but this is not the first director-approved major change to the look of this film on home video, the 2010 blu was degrained then...
