    While Schindler's List may not be one of those films that has the audience walking down the road afterwards, smiling, while they recall the lyrics of their favorite songs, it's a film for which Steven Spielberg will always be considered at the top of his craft.

    It was magnificently photographed by Janusz Kaminski, in glorious black & white, and I've never seen it look superior to this new 4k Blu-ray from Universal.

    Overall resolution, shadow detail are perfectly reproduced.

    Perfection, and another reason to make the move to 4k.

    Audio has been repurposed to Dolby Atmos.

    As both a film, and as a disc, they don't come any better.

    Image - 5

    Audio - 5 (Dolby Atmos)

    Pass / Fail - Pass

    Upgrade from HD Blu-ray - Without a doubt

    Very Highly Recommended

    Give Spielberg high marks for shooting it in black & white.

    I agree, great release. There must have been film reels running in the projector behind me.

    I touched on a few bits of trivia with regards to the film's theatrical release in my UHD review.

    I really need to pick up this movie on 4K blu-ray! It should look incredible on my Sony OLED!
