    I'm not convinced there is such a thing as not true HDR. Maybe not what he wishes HDR to be but as long as the video is properly encoded as HDR it is actual HDR.

    Also consider that he complains that peak brightness never exceeds 400 nits while theatrical dolbyvision only goes up to a maximum of 106 nits.

    Oh. That makes me glad I haven't bought them.

    In that case, I agree with your general premise. The Blu-rays will be movie-only like the existing releases, but sourced from the new 4K masters, which means I'll get to own the Maclunckey cut in 1080p. Any bonus apart from the commentaries will be on an additional disc for each film, which would match how Disney has treated their newer titles.

    I’m sure the codes will work exactly the same as the Last Jedi and Solo 4K codes worked, which was 4K everywhere except iTunes. The iTunes embargo isn’t going to change until one side or the other caves in.

    Right, my understanding is that HDR is a tool that allows filmmakers to show greater dynamic range, so that the difference between the blackest black and the whitest white is far greater than what it used to be with the standard dynamic range.

    That doesn’t mean that everyone making something needs to push the whites to be as bright as possible or the blacks are dark as possible or the colors as vibrant as possible. It just gives them more options. Like going from the 12 color pack of Crayola crayons to the 48 pack. If they don’t use all options all the time, it doesn’t mean that it’s not HDR.

    Does this guy also think a movie isn’t really in surround sound if all 7.1 speakers aren’t used equally at all times?

    Wake me up when the original trilogy as exhibited theatrically is released on 4k with the original titles. Utterly uninterested in prequels, sequels etc. Disappointed that Lucas continues to be so disrespectful to those of us who saw the films on release.

    Vincent Teoh can fuck right off with his bullshit. He should know better.

    Yikes. Well, at least I know you feel strongly about it.

    I don’t watch all of Vincent’s videos but I thought he knows what he is talking about and has a fun sense of humor. It didn’t seem like he was putting down the older trilogy 4K conversion. Just stating his findings. It made sense given the newer films are made with 4K in mind I bet.

    Respect is a two way street and Lucas hasn't received a lot of that from fans so I can understand his "F U" attitude.

    Wow! I don't agree with Vincent in this regard, but I do enjoy many of his videos.

    Has anyone watched STAR WARS on Disney+? Is it just me, or do the colors look a bit faded and do faces flicker from flesh color to grey every now and then?

    Just finished watching it 10 minutes ago in 4K Dolby Vision and I saw nothing like what you described. These 4K versions are spectacular.

    They're not faded. The previous dvd and blu-ray masters were just wildly oversaturated.

    iTunes doesn’t offer the Star Wars films in 4K.

    I know - that was the point of my post - hoping that digital 4K codes being included on the physical release meant iTunes might finally upgrade to 4K...
