    I watched The Post on UHD-BD. It looked immaculate. I really didn't enjoy the movie all that much. I lived through the plot. Hearing Richard Nixon's voice brought back memories, many not so pleasant. The movie is well done and well acted. It wasn't all that enjoyable for me.

  5. The Outer Limits season one. The transfers are so good you can see the wires in some scenes and the areas where the masks end on performers.

    Well, you can always go back to bad old day's DVD's in fuzz-tones deee-luxe.... ;)
     
  7. Nah, I’m good. It’s amazing what was hidden though between inferior prints and lower resolution TV’s.

    The way the industry used to fight resolution for so long, I never thought I'd see TV's or media this good in my lifetime!

    Salaam Bombay! (1998, Mira Nair)
    The Limited Edition Collection version of Mira Nair's first worldwide feature film release looks great though the only special features are two audio commentaries, one by Nair herself. The woman is the personification of energy as her commentary track illustrates. And watching this beautifully written, photographed and directed film about a kid abandoned by his family and left to fend for himself in the streets of Bombay you get the feeling of the incredible energy and resources that it took to make a film of this caliber. One of the best films I've seen in a while.

    I watched Hostiles on UHD-BD. I liked it. It's a very stark movie about the destruction of Native American society in the second half of the 19th century. I'm impressed that Christian Bale learned to speak some, I think it was, Cheyenne....?

    Did you see "Black Sea". Not bad a lot of submarine action.

    Grease (1978) 40th Anniversary UHD

    Proper multi channel mix. Hear the hits as they were intended!

    Image quality is inconsistent throughout, but overall well worth the price.

    Is the inconsistency grain in some scenes?

    There are numerous scenes which are soft. There's been DNR and/or other processing. Hard to say if the source is party to blame.

    A great many films from that period look soft. The biggest factor might be the film stock they used that had a soft look...???

    Definitely buy it. The proper mix was used and it sounds amazing.

    I'm not sure how blatant the image shortcomings will be on a 65", where the Scope screen area is small, but on my screen it's obvious and unlike any anamorphic 35mm 4K I've screened. Some scenes are really nice and then the next few seconds are just bad. Has nothing to do with that period (late 70s).
