    Grease UHD Review
    [​IMG]


    Forty years ago, Grease hit movie screens and became a cultural phenomenon and cemented John Travolta as a movie star. For its anniversary, Paramount has released the film on 4K UHD Blu-ray, featuring a restored picture and soundtrack.

    My Amazon shipment can't get here soon enough! (purchased through the HTF link, of course!)

    Great job on the review, looking forward to screening this soon for friends!

    Excellent review, Todd. I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Unfortunately, they left in the mistake at 1:43:43, but finally, and it only took 40 years, but we get to see GREASE the way it was originally. The sound is finally good and the color and picture is restored.

    Most of the 'grumbling' I have read concerns liberal use of DNR- a shame on a 4K OCN scan. I'll watch it tonight...

    It does have a lot of DNR in some places, rather disappointing (and surprising) for a 4K version. But the color is great in Dolby Vision and the sound is a gigantic improvement.

    Can anyone more knowledgable than me say if the lack of the band clapping around 1:06:14 is the way the original really mix was? You'd have to go back to the original LD or VHS to check this and I don't have access to either.
