New to Blu: August 21 – 27


Pokemon Detective Pikachu

➢ “The results on UHD are certainly pleasing to the eye, though audiences looking for a massive upgrade from the Blu-ray won’t find it. Warner Brothers’ UHD refines the image, using both the added resolution to 2160p over 1080p and the HDR colours as means of bettering the picture without substantially altering it. Textures enjoy modest increases in stability, visibility, and overall clarity.” —

➢ “Detective Pikachu is one of the few modern movies to be shot on 35mm film. Even though the image on this 4K Blu-ray was scanned at 2K resolution, this choice surprisingly helps the transfer. While it’s naturally a bit softer as a result, the image detail and clarity in this 4K upscale remain outstanding. In particular, the level of detail on the titular character is absolutely stunning.” — SuperHeroHype.

➢  “The differences between this and the 1080p version are appreciable as there is a noticeably finer texture in the minutia, especially in the characteristics/physical makeup of the animated characters … Viewing Pokemon Detective Pikachu in Ultra HD wasn’t an eye-opening experience however, I think it makes the most of the film’s elements, making it the go to for UHD fans considering a purchase.” — AVSForum.
