    I don't understand that logic by Sony. If this continues, it means I'll be buying fewer Sony products in the future unless the physical disc is heavily discounted.

    The disc is currently $19.99.

  2. Thanks for the review, Todd. I didn't realize this was coming out on 4K disc.

    No digital copy is definitely disappointing. Like Robert, this will have to get much less expensive for me to pull the trigger on with no DC. Not sure why Sony went that way.

    What makes you think that, without having a code to redeem and no 4K digital available on any service, perhaps, Sony is trying to force us to buy the 4K disc.

    I tend to think that if they released a 4K disc, the 4K digital version will be available soon.

    They’re just not giving us the free code this time.

  4. I did a little research this morning while redeeming some codes on Movies Anywhere, and found out that Stand By ME is not a Movies Anywhere title. It may have something to do with the fact this was made as an independent (it was produced by Act III) and was later picked up by Columbia Pictures.

    I have this ordered-I'm going to have to buy some nice 4K BD cases-as the titles Sony releases on disc have abysmal cases.

    Can you elaborate? I think Sony, Disney, and Universal releases have the best cases, while Warner tends to have the worst.

    Thick, sturdy cases that snap tight when closed. That is what I want.
    My copy of "A Few Good Men", and "Christine" were awful. thin, and awkward cases–borderline non functional hard to clasp. Poor quality.

  7. Anyone else's 4K disk get glitchy at the pie-eating contest scene? 48:05. I checked my disc, it's clean, so it looks like data corruption. Kind of like back in the day when RSDL DVDs weren't authored well. Contacting Amazon now…

    No problem with my review copy.

  9. 4K is a nice upgrade for sure. I seem to remember the Blu-Ray looking great. I just did a side by side, and the quality doesn’t even come close to the 4K disc. It looks over saturated, unnatural, while the UHD disc looks natural, and very fine, wonderful detail.
    The Teddy Duchamp deleted scene is straight out of the book, and scary. I think it should have been left in the film as it explains why a character acts the way he does on the bridge.

    I love the slip cover with original poster art.
