New to Blu: March 11 – 17

Knives Out

➢ “Knives Out arrives on 4K UHD with a particularly interesting 2160p 1.85:1 Dolby Vision transfer upsampled from a 2K Digital Intermediate. While a native 4K DI would have been incredible, this transfer is a rousing success.” — High-Def Digest.

➢ “Much of the film was shot in low and natural light, yet the shadows have impressive detail and the highlights have a luminous glare. This is a gorgeous looking image and you could be forgiven for thinking it’s actually a 4K photochemical film scan.” — The Digital Bits.

➢ “This is another digitally captured production that has obviously been tweaked to better resemble traditional film, and there’s a kind of slightly mottled appearance to things as a result. The palette has also been toyed with at times, with an almost desaturated look.” —

21 Bridges

➢ “Another stellar looking Blu-ray, which is quite a feat considering the movie was shot mostly at night. Detail is exceptional, capturing the grittiness of what is supposed to be late night Manhattan … Black levels are also excellent.” — Home Theater Forum.

➢ “Colours are well saturated with eye pleasing vitality and delineated depth. Images are resolute, with stable sharpness, crisp detail and appreciable subtle refinement. Contrast is dynamic without being overpowering and blacks are respectable in depth.” — AVS Forum.

➢ “Also strong is the DTS HD track which stays busy constantly. Vocals have the crisp sound I like, but the action keeps us involved. Background details add nice depth to the track and bring us right into this world.” — Blu-ray Authority.

The Dead Don’t Die

➢ “Rises from the grave with a solid transfer. Presented in 1.78:1 in 1080p the image boasts excellent fine detail and color depth. Primaries are warm and earth tones slightly muted … Nighttime scenes offer plenty of detail in shadow and low light.” — High-Def Digest.

➢ “The 1.78:1/1080p/AVC-encoded image offers appropriate depth and texture. Close-ups reveal intimate facial details, and wide shots are deep and crisp. The cool colour palette is complemented by steady blacks and abundant shadow detail.” — DVD Talk.
