New to Blu: January 8 – 14



➢ “The 1080p transfer of Joker is a good one and this Ultra HD rendering takes it up a notch with a discernible increase in detail and visual depth. This is a period style film that was shot with a specific visual aesthetic in mind and that comes through in this presentation … In comparing the DV and HDR-10 renderings I ran the same scenes using my reference Panasonic UHD player in DV and HDR-10 modes. The title looked terrific on both formats with respect to the reproduction of HDR.” — AVSForum.

➢ “The lunatics have taken over the Ultra HD asylum dressed to the heavily-stylised nines and looking surprisingly snazzier than its HD SDR counterpart. The visually captivating HEVC H.265 encode beautifully and faithfully captures the dark, brooding moodiness intended by director Todd Phillips and cinematographer Lawrence Sher, boasting a slightly more vibrant array of colours throughout … This is a gorgeous and recommended upgrade over the Blu-ray.” — High-Def Digest.

➢ “Presented in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, Joker was shot digitally in mixed high resolutions with a true 4K digital intermediate; though Warner Bros.’ Blu-ray is technically scaled down quite a bit, its 1080p transfer is clearly a five-star effort that represents the best this format has to offer. Image detail and textures are perfectly rendered, revealing a considerable amount of depth and clarity that stands toe-to-toe with high-quality 35mm film stock.” —
