New to Blu: February 20 – 26


The Girl in the Spider’s Web

➢ “Sourced from a 4K Digital Intermediate, this 2.39:1 1080p transfer is a terrific showcase example demo disc that could only potentially be improved by an HDR 4K UHD presentation. Details are exquisite. The art direction for this film is phenomenal with every location steeped in tiny details that ooze foreboding and dread. Facial features, makeup work, locations, and set design all come through with terrific clarity.” — High-Def Digest.

➢ “The intended look of the film doesn’t lend itself to being pretty, but this disc showcases mostly to the best of the format’s ability. The film has a solid look to it and an above average depth of field. There are some good exterior shots looking very free and spacious, but the nature of this beast doesn’t lend itself to a lot of the pushback look. The sniper sequence proves one of the best. Motion is natural, cinematic and smooth with no real motion distortion issues.” — WhySoBlu.

You Were Never Really Here

➢ “Umbrella Entertainment presents the film in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio in 1080p AVC MPEG-4. Shot digitally, the picture is very crisp and well defined in both dark scenes taking place at night while reflecting neon lights, as well as in daytime scenes with fine detail see throughout. The raid scene changes to low definition black and white surveillance footage that looks obviously worse than the rest of the footage, which is fully intentional. Colours are well balanced and there are no errors in the transfer.” — Rewind.

➢  “The presentation absorbs every inch of detail in the piece, enjoying the scenery, taking in the textures and nuances of the framed images … Sure, lighting conditions limit the excellence on offer here, with some tonal choices further putting a halt on outright demo material, but it’s a very nice presentation nonetheless.” — AV Forums.
