My hardest decision this weekend is whether to watch Unforgiven UHD or this first LOL.

This was my first UHD purchase. I don't have a 4K set yet, I just wanted to get this now. I saw the movie in the theater in IMAX, but can't wait to see Logan Noir.

What a pleasant change of pace to include the Noir version in the initial UHD and Blu-Ray releases, instead of holding it for a double-dip down the road.

Ok. So the noir version is just a black and white version of the film right?

Don't understand the appeal. I can just adjust any film to be black and white so what's the purpose?

Am I missing something?

That's basically it. Director James Mangold claims that they carefully color timed the B&W version, and that if you simply turned the color off on your monitor, you wouldn't get the look that he intended. But since I haven't seen it yet, I'm not sure how much of that is hyperbole and how much is truth.

It's nice that it's included at no extra cost, and I'll probably check it out once. What I wasn't willing to do was purchase the B&W version of Mad Max: Fury Road -- for that release, the filmmakers released the 3D movie as a 2D-only black & white version as a double dip that had to be purchased separately. (This was clearly done as a double dip because the filmmakers had stated while the film was still in theaters that the B&W version was completed and would be included in the regular Blu-ray release, but I gather someone at Warner decided to hold off and cash in twice.)

Just finished watching it. Looked awesome in 4K. Dolby Atmos great too. And the films not half bad either. :D

So they didn't include the Deadpool opening short on any of the home disc releases?
