Rob Reiner's Best Picture Oscar nominee A Few Good Men comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic 2.35:1 transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while Spanish and French soundtracks are recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and Korean subtitles are accessible. There are no substantial extra materials, which is something of a surprise considering the film's popular and critical success. Fans of the film will appreciate the great picture, but those that were underwhelmed by the film in the theater will find nothing to change their minds on this release.
Digitally mastered audio & anamorphic video
Audio: English 5.1 [Dolby Digital] and 2-channel [Dolby Surround]
A Few Good Men is still a pretty good 90's mainstream film about the call of duty and acceptable behavior. A nice drama with suspense, and some great, iconic performances by big names like Jack Nicholson.
Movie aside, the 4K UHD is a true stunner. This is one of the releases that had people calling Sony the undisputed champ of the format. The detail, clarity, pixel density and fullness will floor you and the wider color gamut + HDR is applied to tastefully, accurately and noticeably... shadows so deep, with so much retained detail. Automobiles with perfect sheen. Glints and reflections in the actors eyes that will strike you as seemingly impossible.
Can't recommend this release enough to anyone looking to see how great older movies can look in 4K HDR, with a pretty enjoyable movie to boot. If you're of the mindset that only newer movies, shot with digital cameras etc can shine on UHD, this will surely change your mind.
One of the great courtroom dramas in modern day. As a lawyer I generally hate courtroom movies and shows because they are so unrealistic and truly this isn’t much different. A real courtroom is never this exciting or tense and there’s no way a real judge would allow a witness to be badgered in the final scene. But I was able to suspend my belief because of his great all the performances were. Tom Cruise, like him or not, is a great actor and has really been overlooked by academy awards voters. Much like Al Pacino he’ll likely win for something weaker in his career than some of his brilliant work in dramas like this. The 4K is really clean and brings out the darks better than the Blu-ray. The price makes this one an easy double dip for me. Although I promised not to re buy buy rays the price made the exception for this great Rob Reiner drama.
