New to Blu: June 5 – 11


➢ “My one complaint of the home video release of Vice is that it is not being offered in 4K UHD – and it needs to be! Shot on a combination of 8mm, 16mm, 35mm and finished on a 4K DI, this is a beautiful looking 1080p 2.39:1 transfer that delivers a terrific filmic image. Film grain is apparent but never too intrusive, even with the film stock changes, the effect is pretty seamless. Details are splendid.” — High-Def Digest.

➢ “Vice is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. This was shot on film and finished at a 4K DI, but it’s important to recognise that several formats, including 8mm, 16mm and 35mm, were utilised, leading to what I have to assume is an intentionally heterogeneous look … This transfer supports the wide variances in clarity, detail levels and grain structure fairly effortlessly.” —

What Men Want

➢ “While the movie left a bit to be desired, there’s no faulting Paramount’s 2.39:1 AVC HD encode. It looks stunning from beginning to end. Contrast is solid, detail is spectacular and the colour palette is warm and friendly throughout … Bucking the trend to offer a DTS HD Master Audio mix, this TrueHD offering checks all the boxes.” — Blu-ray Authority.

➢ “The video is a 1080p AVC presentation that has a clean transfer. It has been captured digitally and there is nothing lost in the picture. The details are prominent and the lines are crisp. Some of the scenes do have a softness to them but these are mostly in the lower lit settings. Skin, fabrics, and other textures look great. Coloring is brilliant and bold.” — Hi-Def Ninja.

Happy Death Day 2 U

➢ “The digitally sourced production translates extremely well to Blu-ray. All of the pieces are in order, including vibrant colours and high yield textural clarity on a shot-by-shot basis. Contrast has been boosted up a bit, giving nearly every hue an unmistakable increase in zest that lends to the movie a mildly hyperrealistic appearance. Lips and eyes really pop and environmental elements — natural and manmade, inside and outside — also present with intense saturation.” —

Also new are The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot and DC Batman vs Ninja Turtles.
