    Ghostbusters (1984) 4K Ultra-HD

    My first feature length viewing of UHD. ChadB's visit to set up my front projection display was a great success.

    Anyhow, this film is among the handful of worthwhile catalog titles which are transferred from a 4K master. Truly an experience for those who enjoy the look of 35mm on a big screen.

    I can't wait to get this one. Hopefully we'll also get Lawrence of Arabia soon.

    I watched the Extended Superman last night. All the footage looks about the same. There's bits of added footage all through the movie. There's a whole lot of footage added to the ending. The whole missile and earthquake in California, near Otisburg ;) , accounts for a lot of it. It looks like they reinserted every bit of disaster footage they created for the film.

    I'll watch the shorter Director's cut someday after last night's showing fades out of my memory some.

    Anyone on the fence? I checked out this special which first aired in 1966. Holy cow. I definitely underestimated 10 bit color, to say the least!

    Seriously considering the Target-exclusive BluRay of Stranger Things.

    While it is nice that Netflix has released the first season of this acclaimed series on BluRay, there are zero extras - absolutely nothing but the episodes. I especially miss commentary tracks. I have Netflix, so I've already seen the show. If there had been even one commentary track I would not be hesitating to buy it. Same dilemma people faced with Jessica Jones (zero extras).

    The Target exclusive edition is made to look like a beaten-up VHS cassette case. Some people are thrilled by it, but it doesn't distract me from the lack of any extras.

    The price is sensible - only $25. They're hoping to bring in new fans with a low price point. They could have charged $40 and it still would have sold well, so, I'm glad that they opted for a lower price.

    Another reason to hesitate is that it is not yet known if there will be a 4K+BluRay set later on. With shows like Westworld being released in 4K+BluRay sets, the expectation that shows produced in 4K might be released in 4K has been set. It is also not yet known if there will be a more typical BluRay release (in a regular BluRay case) once Target's exclusivity ends. People who lack ample shelf space may prefer to wait for that possibility.

    Purchased one of these for myself and for my brother in law, haven't received them in the mail yet. The lack of extras is a bummer but the novelty and the price point were worth it.

    I also just got the new GKIDS rerelease of the Blurays for Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. No more dubtitles! I do remember my Disney copies looked great as they were. Without directly comparing them, I would say that there is a bit more grain present on the GKIDS, as well as slightly softer colors (at least for Mononoke). This could totally be my imagination.

    Great releases though. Definitely gonna pick up the rest of them over time. Hoping this isn't any kind of limited run
