    Razor blade visuals to the eyes in stunning 4K

    |
    Posted .

    My absolute favorite Sci-Fi film realized and magnificently restored in stunning 4K HDR is absolutely stunning. Not only is Blade Runner (classic) a masterpiece of a film; perfectly written and directed but, the restoration of the original negative to mind-blowing 4K HDR resolution leaves me in awe. While the film's filter grain is accentuated in UHD, it is not necessarily a bad thing. Lights and lense flares are "punchy" and bright while colors are vivid and deep without disrupting the mood and tone of what the film was meant to capture. I highly recommend picking up this 4K UHD blu-ray if you can find it. It is a perfect demonstration of what 4K HDR can do for even films that are 30+ years old (but, that depends on the source and studio doing the restoration of course).

    I recently bought the new one and loved it, so I wanted to see the first one. I new it was a somewhat cult classic, I just never got around to seeing it. I did enjoy it, but it definitely has the feel of an early 80’s movie. It reminds me of 80’s music videos.. a little on the strange side. However, the 4K presentation is top notch! For a movie this old, they did an absolute fantastic transfer. At the end of the day, I’m happy that I picked it up and will watch it again. I just like the new one better.

    pros: New update features like HDR which the movie looks better than ever especially on an OLED. This Atmos soundtrack has a high level of surround from all angles & height overhead effect that I enjoyed on my 11.2 (7.2.4) Cons: None.

    I am a hard core "Blade Runner" fan. I own every single version of this movie. VHS, BETA, Laserdisc, Including the Criterion Collection Laserdisc, DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, now this 4K Final Cut version. Ridley Scott out did himself with this remastered 4K version. I doubt, when it premiered in 1982 in theaters, that it looked & sounded anything like this version. 1st the audio. From the first bass hit of Vangelis legendary score. On every single previous version that first hit was always distorted. No matter what amp, speakers or subwoofer I had. No matter how I tweaked the audio. It was always distorted. Now its clean, clear, & I can literally feel it. When we see L.A., that first blast from the refinery goes off. Again its clear, crisp. When the spinner car flys by. You hear and feel it go past you on your left. Every single line of dialouge is crystal clear. Every drop of rain, every footstep, is crystal clear. 2nd the visual. Enough can not be said. It was already a visually stunning work. Ill put it this way. I was already excited when I got this 4K version. My wife sat down next to me to watch it. (Only because Harrison Ford is in it.) From the moment the Ladd company logo came on. In its bright green color & below it the Sir Run Run Shaw in red popped up I was impressed. Again, just like the audio. Both were always distorted and blurry in every previous version. Now they were razor sharp, defined, and very clear. When the film fades to that overhead shot of L.A. Never before was this opening scene so, razor sharp, defined, balanced, clean, composed, so focused. My jaw hit the ground. Then the cut to Holdens eye. You could at last clearly see the reflection in it of what he is seeing. I just sat there completely stunned. My wife asked me "Are you okay?" I slowly turned to her and said. "Oh my gawd. This is beyond what I had imagined. I have never seen this moive like this It feels like Im seeing this movie for the first time." I do like the changes and edits Riddley Scott made with this Final Cut. One eliminates the massive visual disconnect in a critical scene. In another scene he corrects the audio disconnect between what we are seeing and what we hearing. Not to mention fixes a very important part of the story with another audio edit at the beginning. The scene between Rachel & Decker at his apartment after Leon is retired. We see something very clearly for the first time. (not going to spoil it but its been a subject of debate since this movie came out. More so now that BR 2049 was made) I own other "remastered" movies. But none of those can touch this one. (Except for one that just came out.) This movie should be the standard for any and all future 4K remasters. If other studios cant match this one. They are wasting thier time, money not to mention thier fans time and money. If you are a fan of Blade Runner. This is a must have. If you are fan of cinema this is also a must have for you too. Why, you ask? This movie was a big influence on this generations greatest movie director. Christoper Nolan. Finally. Without this movie. We dont get the anime "Ghost in the Shell". Without "Ghost in the Shell" we dont get "The Matrix." Without "The Matrix" we dont get the 21st century movie scifi genre we have now.

    4K HDR Review

    |
    Posted .

    Blade Runner has been out a while, so I'm not reviewing the movie content, which is fantastic. This review is for the 4k HDR transfer. For a movie that was created in 1982, the 4K HDR transfer looks pretty **** good! There are only minimal scenes where you can see some graininess, which is pretty good considering that this movie is mainly set in a dark environment. Some put a little more effort into making sure a transfer is done well, and this movie is one of those exceptions. Many of the older movies don't get as much "love" (such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and they almost look worse than the original blu ray release. You won't be disappointed with this 4k HDR release. Being a movie with a darker ambient environment there are plenty of lights to pop out at you showing off the HDR effects. If you happen to own a TV that produces really great blacks (OLED, etc.), you will like the blacks in this movie.

    A must-buy for Blade Runner fans

    This edition of "Blade Runner" includes all four versions of the film (the original theatrical cut, the international theatrical cut, the 1992 director's cut, and the 2007 final cut). There are also making-of documentaries for the fans. The inclusion of the various cuts is nice for students of film as they can compare the changes and Ridley Scott's directorial intent. Unfortunately, only the 2007 final cut is up to modern high-def standards, but the others are watchable on a regular DVD player with no noticeable loss of quality. Those looking to get a copy of the original before the sequel debuts in theaters should consider this set.

    Best Old Movie 4K Transfer

    |
    Posted .

    My collection of 4K HDR movies is growing and I have what are considered some of the best reference quality 4K movies out there ... Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Dunkirk, Passengers, & Blade Runner 2049 just to name a few. All of these are the best 4K HDR has to offer with rich vibrant colors and sharp pictures. The quality of these movies will spoil you to anything else you watch and you really get disappointed when you get an older movie that's been transferred to 4K and HDR .... Most of the time ... so much so that I stopped buying anything but new movies in 4K HDR. Older movies tend to look better in 1080 just up-converted by your TV or Blu-Ray player! However, this movie, the original Blade Runner, is a huge exception and is incredible ... I just couldn't believe how good the picture was. I'd read reviews raving about the transfer to 4K but I wasn't expecting it to be this good. If you were to nit-pick it you'd definitely drop it a few points compared to say the new Blade Runner 2049, but really, and considering it's a 1982 film, there's NOTHING to complain about as far as picture quality is concerned. It's unbelievably colorful and sharp and is MUCH better that a MOST newer movies transferred to 4K. Whether you like the original Blade Runner movie from the story line standpoint or not doesn't take away the visual enjoyment of watching this movie ... it's really, from a technical standpoint, that good.

    Ok, so here we go. With a kind of rough start to my viewing experience it ended up being really awesome. I first had to literally hunt down a copy of this the very day it was released. I wanted to show this to my kids so they could get a good idea of what it’s about before the sequel came out. After finding that nearly every Best Buy in the Denver Metro Area was sold out of it the moment the stores opened I knew I was in trouble. Luckily I found 2 copies at the store nearest my house because they are atrocious at placing them where you can find things. This time it worked to my advantage, and I got a copy. So I took it home getting all excited to watch this great film that I loved with my kids. Popped it in my player and watched to where the flames shoot up at the beginning of the film and it froze and became pixelated. So I got scared, popped it out cleaned off the disc (that was already clean as it was brand new) and tried again, whew, made it a bit further. Then it happened again, and again. Skipping past vast sections I found that I had a bad disc. Getting frustrated because from what I could tell the picture was amazing. I downgraded to the Blu Ray copy so we could just plain watch it. Tried fast forwarding to where it died on us and picked up where we left off. This time on the Blu Ray copy it played just fine. Didn’t look as good, but still not bad, BUT the dialogue was about a second behind the actors. I fast forwarded and apparently this was a problem with the whole disc. You can imagine my frustration when I decided that the only way we would see this that evening was to watch it streaming through the included digital copy off of VUDU. Fortunately for us that version was just fine, but only HDX, not UHD 4k (frustration). So I took it back to Best Buy who exchanged my disc. I took it home and it worked fine, and looks amazing and is worth every penny. But buyer beware, apparently there may be bad discs, so be sure to check what you get quickly.

    Great film to 4K transfer

    Posted .

    This review is solely for the 4K disc and blu day as I have not watched the special features. The movie was previously remastered for the blu ray release and the UHD disc features a 2160p 16:9 2:4:1 presentation. I was impressed by the detail of the landscape shots and the actors. If you already own the blu Ray special edition release I would be hard pressed to recommend a repurchase as there just isn’t that much more detail to pull from the original film. Edges look a little harder with sharper lines but wether or not that justifies the upgrade depends on the buyer. I did notice a more detailed sound stage on my 5.1 home theater. If you want the ultimate presentation of this movie and have the right equipment I definitely think it’s worth the purchase. If you are already an owner of the blu ray and will be watching with a sound bar I don’t think it warrants a rebuy for the resolution bump and hdr.

    Movie was ahead of it's time...

    This movie is a classic. It is profound and explores subject matters like: what it means to be sentient and alive. It is full of very nuanced details and needs to be watched at least twice to catch everything. While not entirely necessary, I would recommend watching this movie before watching Blade Runner 2049. The video quality is the best version I have seen this movie released in but unfortunately in certain areas (special effects, action) this movie shows it's age. But it was ahead of it's time in many ways.

    This is a classic that looks as if it was just filmed this year. I’ve seen detail in this 4k Ultra HD BLU-Ray that I haven’t noticed on any other format before. Texture on clothing pops on screen. Colors leap off the screen and keeps you engaged with the movie. This is always the movie to own in any collection. Make sure it’s this 4k Ultra HD BLU-Ray version.

    I'm re-buying this again? TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    It's a close race between Blade Runner and The Fifth Element. Which one appears more times within a given individual's home video collection? I really thought The Final Cut on HD-DVD / Blu-Ray would be it for Blade Runner. Where else do you go from there? Well as it turns out, there was even more awesome to be had... this UHD release (at least the main feature) is significantly superior in terms of image and sound. For anyone who has never seen Blade Runner... THIS is the way to see it. If you like cyberpunk/sprawling high-tech megalopolis settings, this is must-see material, as it was hugely influential on numerous beloved properties that would follow... things like Ghost in the Shell, Syndicate [video game], and the Fifth Element and others drew major visual inspiration from this film. But it's not all style... there is substance here, too. But really, if you're interested in this release, you probably already know the film and own it on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, and/or Blu-Ray. So then the question becomes, "is it worth rebuying?" And the answer is "YES! A resounding yes!" The higher resolution and bitrate makes a meaningful difference, HDR makes the neon and spinner sirens on those rain-soaked streets POP, and the Atmos audio track is incredible!
