New to View on Blu This Easter


“Great video, shame about the movie,” sums up the reception for the 4K-UHD and Blu-ray releases of Wonder Woman 1984.

“There are zero video problems to report here, making this a phenomenal-looking video presentation,” High-Def Digest said of the native 4K transfer.

“With the enhanced HDR + Dolby Vision element, there is a noticeable upgrade in colour and detail from the already fantastic 1080p Blu-ray version.”

“The native 4K picture is stunning,” AVForums said. “Colouring is vibrant and vivid, with the WCG and HDR imbuing the primaries with a verve that the Blu-ray cannot match.

“The Dolby Atmos track is wide and expansive giving a real sense of immersion.”

The 4K-UHD and Blu-ray transfers of Soul, which has been streaming in 4K on Disney+ since December 25, also are worth trumpeting.

“Disney’s 2160/HDR UHD release for Soul looks terrific on its own and improves upon the Blu-ray for both colour output and textural clarity,” said.

“Technical maladies are nonexistent. What a stunner!”

“Like all recent Pixar films, Soul’s digital animation was rendered in 2K resolution,” The Digital Bits notes. “But don’t let the upscaling put you off; this is lovely animation …

“Audio-wise, the 4K disc includes a fine English Dolby Atmos mix that … presents the film’s score in outstanding fidelity.”

Collectors of classic movies will want to snap up the Blu-rays of The Ladykillers and Breathless.

The former’s missed out on a 4K-UHD release here but the two-disc Blu-ray set sounds like a must-have given its picture quality and fantastic extras.

    Is that the original Ladykillers with Alec Guiness ? I’ve seen a remastered UK BD and it’s stunning.

  2. That’s the one. Just a pity Sony and Studiocanal aren’t releasing the 4K version in Australasia.
