    Don't worry, I didn't buy it myself.

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

    Did you watch the technical analysis of the HDR and colour space? It is pretty clear that the UHD contains nothing that isn't already on the BD. It's just filtered and sharpened. I've hated sharpening since the days of VHS. But, ok, VHS was so fuzzy and TVs were so small back then that it...

    My dad's normal sitting position is 4 meters from a 42" TV. At that distance you can't tell the difference between a BD and a DVD. I know people who like to sit at the back of the cinema. What's normal? Why do you buy UHDs if you sit at a distance where the resolution makes no difference? I...

    Did you click on it to switch between the BD and the UHD? The DNR/EE filter doesn't know what to do with the grain on Ripley's face, so it decides that she hasn't shaved.

    Ah, discussion about viewing distances take me back to the good old days of 2008-2010, when people would defend various horrendously DNRed and sharpened (and sometimes SD upscaled) releases with "Scary Movie / Tremors / Zulu / Escape from New York / whatever looks GREAT on my TV at a NORMAL...

    Oh, too bad. Anyway, I think Harris embarrassed himself so thoroughly with his review of Elizabeth on HD-DVD that no one should ever take him seriously again. Was that sarcasm? Hyperbole? Irony? Does it even matter? It's all just a bit of fun. And really, only nerdy losers care about movies.

    As long as "getting it right" means picking almost exclusively American or British films, right? Also, you know that in order to get a nomination, a movie has to have a pretty healthy advertising budget?

    Does that mean that his reviews of these three Cameron films are essentially sarcasm and he thinks they are garbage?

    Exactly. Say what you will about the Aliens BD, at least it still looks like film. If the UHD looks like the 4K stream, then it no longer looks like it was shot on film, but on some fairly early digital camera that applied artificial sharpening when shooting. I suppose that we should count...
