New to Blu: December 11 – 17


Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

➢ “Sporting a glorious native 4K video presentation that looks sensational, the disc presents a 3840 x 2160p resolution image utilising the film’s original theatrical aspect ratio of widescreen 2.39:1 … Disappointingly, there’s no Atmos on offer here, but the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track is pretty damn potent anyway.” — AVForums.


IT: Chapter 2

➢ “Based upon the excellent quality of the original source the difference between viewing IT Chapter Two in high definition and Ultra HD* isn’t night and day, but there is no question that its UHD presentation benefitted from the increase in resolution, and high dynamic range treatment.” — AVSForum.

* The 4K-UHD release is exclusive to JB Hi-Fi.

Dragged Across Concrete

➢ “Despite some extremely heavy grading, general detail levels and especially fine detail levels are often excellent … features a generally immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, one which attains good surround activity.” —

Scarface: Gold Edition

“There are some good aspects to the 4K transfer, but it certainly not up there with the very best 4K remasters we’ve seen. Its biggest strength – with some scenes, at least – is its detail …  Plus there’s usually a more filmic, gritty feel to the image that makes it feel both more connected to its celluloid origins, and more in keeping with the time it was made.” — Forbes.

    I don’t think any Tarantino films have been released in Atmos for home viewing ?
