Possibly, I can explain the point this way. I’ll be reviewing the new 4k of The Natural, exquisitely, and occasionally ethereally photographed by Caleb Deschanel. Mr. Crisp, and his team at Columbia, have created a perfect 4k Blu-ray. But that doesn’t mean that every shot is filled with high frequency detail. Some is. Much is not. But we end up with an extremely natural, velvety image with perfectly rendered grain, and a beautiful palette of lights and darks. The difference, at least to my eye, is that The Natural is basically a practical film, while the Batman productions, as authentic as they are on 4k, have layers of effects, which must be blended into the overall image. They’re different. HDR aside, the 4k of Natural seems to work better at that resolution, as we’re reading the content of the negative, while the Batman films (again, as nicely as they’ve been handled)seem better suited to a format that allows less peering into the details of the negative. As a capture, and playback process, 4k is heaven sent for large chip, 65mm, VVLA, and TLA productions, where it can shine. Most viewers, who are properly set up, can find rapture in the HDR of 4k releases, not based upon large format. But the reality is that the majority of those releases won’t look much different from an HD version of the same film, if HDR were offered, when viewed from a normal seating distance. I have no argument with the Batman films, or the way that they have been brought to 4k. The older Blu releases were produced well, for the period in which they were made, but I believe that a new HD image harvest would stand up nicely against 4k, if HDR was available. This based upon the amount of high frequency information that I’m seeing.
