I purchased the iTunes HD version when it was $4.99. As Mark-P pointed out, it was upgraded to 4K Dolby Vision this week.
Gives me hope that my most wanted 4K upgrade--Planet of the Apes (2001... jk )--might see the light of day. The Blu-Ray looks good for its vintage, but there is much room for improvement.it's (hopefully) a good sign that Disney is releasing Fox product in 4k.
I could see them doing a Tim Burton or Helena Bonham Carter set (like there would be a lot of difference ) ...Gives me hope that my most wanted 4K upgrade--Planet of the Apes (2001... jk )--might see the light of day. The Blu-Ray looks good for its vintage, but there is much room for improvement.
I got a steel book copy from BestBuy today. It was apparently ONLY available for ordering online and picking up at the store, and when I placed my order it said that it was the last copy available.
There's no melange of warnings and previews? Drat! I just LIVE for hitting the chapter skip button, and the highlight for me of any disk is the INTERPOL warning!One thing that I noticed is that the main screen is about as simple as things get. Basically, "play." Could be a Covid thing.
There is the difference in our experiences - Students of my era learned to count backwards as the Academy Leader played out because we ran films through a projector.In the second grade, we watched a Magic School Bus tape, and the FBI Warning came up. I, aloud to the whole class, blurt out, “don’t copy and sell this tape, blah blah blah blah.”
So I’ve been a nearly lifelong cynic.
