    Excellent movie

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    This is such a great and classic movie. It’s been a number of years since I saw it last, but this is the best it has ever looked. The picture quality looks fantastic in 4K. Very clean and detailed image especially in the first half. The second half of the movie has a little more grain, but still looks great. HDR brings new life to the scenes and makes this look like it was recently filmed. The SteelBook looks awesome as well.

    Solid 4k transfer

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Solid 4k transfer here. Slight layer of grain throughout. Some shots were a bit more focused than others, but that is mostly due to directors intent. The 4k PQ seems to improve as the film goes on. Im very happy with this transfer. Very smooth with all the scratches and tears patched up. I wouldnt demo this disc if im trying to show off my panel, but it does make the film look good.

    I love the movie but I hated my shipping experience. The movie came to my house and the case was cracked as was the disc itself so I had to return it.

    Whole Movie is a War Classic

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    Almost everyone who has seen Full Metal Jacket loves the first half in basic training, with R. Lee Ermey as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman destroying and building back up young men into vicious killers, and the consequential mental breakdown of Private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence, played fantastically by Vincent D'Onofrio. Half of viewers then tune out in the second half, when the protagonist, Private "Joker", is deployed to Vietnam, as it's much slower and bleaker. While it is no "Apocalypse Now", the second half does a great job of showing the results of the Vietnam War on both Vietnam the country and the psyches of combatants on both sides. In 4K with HDR, the details of the sets and outdoor shots give the film an even better look than before. If you watched it before and only remember liking the first half, I suggest giving it another shot. If you've never seen it before, behind "The Shining" it makes for a pretty good intro movie into Stanley Kubrick's filmography.

    Excellent 4K HDR Remaster

    |
    Posted .

    Great detail and color throughout the movie. Expect film grain and some intermittent softness considering this was shot on film over 30 years ago. HDR is not noticeable in the Parris Island scenes since there is not much that needs HDR. The only time it is noticeable is at the very end when Matthew Modine uses his flashlight when he gets fire watch duty. However, HDR is definitely an improvement for the scenes which take place in Vietnam. Most noticeable when fires and explosion occur. The sound quality is very good in terms of clarity of dialog and sound effects. There is some use of low frequency effects (when there is an explosion for example). There is no atmos which is a little disappointing. If you are fan of this movie, you should definitely have this in your collection.

    Remastered masterpiece

    Let’s face it A lot of movies made 35 years ago were filmed with best technology available at that time but are nowhere close to today’s picture and audio quality. The transfer to 4K UHD leaves a lot to be desired in most cases. I was pleasantly surprised with the video quality of Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam classic. The colors and black level contrast are very good and the noise level is surprisingly good. The soundtrack was disappointing as it is not in ATMOS and of course the aspect ratio is not wide screen. If your a fan of this film I believe the upgrade is worth it. I would not use it as film to show off your system, get something recently made filmed with superior technology.

    FULL METAL 4K

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.

    This 4K of Full Metal Jacket looks better to me than my blu-ray from 2011 (and that disc still looks good to me) and that's why you upgrade, right? The movie itself is not a pretty picture and it never will be, so in order to justify the upgrade you need a good reason and the best reason is it's a Stanley Kubrick movie. As a fan I'm more than willing to upgrade but did I get my moneys worth? I personally think so. This 4K is rich in details and bold color schemes and the black levels look so much better. I'm satisfied I made the right choice and upgraded. I can't tell if the included blu-ray is the same as the 2011 disc I already have. It doesn't matter anyway because I'll probably never watch it again. It will make a cool coaster I guess.

    Another top notch 4K release from Stanley Kubrick

    The movies of Stanley Kubrick occupy a very high position in my hierarchy of great movies. So far all of Kubrick's movies which have been given the 4K treatment have been superlative. This one is no exception. The biggest difference for me is in the colors and of course the clarity and definition are superb. The audio is also noticeably improved from the last bluray release. I highly recommend this release even if you already have it in standard 1080p. it's a worthy investment if you love this movie.

    Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam war masterpiece

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    If you're not familiar with Full Metal Jacket then I'd strongly encourage a watch. It's surprisingly not as brutal as other war films but that's not to say it isn't action packet because the second half certainly is. It's basically a story about humanity that shows how people in war are treated and dehumanized to become killing machines. Masterfully made with nice steelbook packaging courtesy of Best Buy. One note would be the paint on my disc was very fresh and made the top not smooth and when I received a replacement it had the same issue. This never happened to me with a 4K disc or BestBuy exclusive steelbook before so hopefully never happens again.

    Any Stanley Kubrick on 4k is a good thing. With some of his titles already on offer in 4k, it was time FMJ had it’s really. Joker, cowboy, snowball and private pile are all here for this Vietnam War title to remember. Buy it, watch it, share it with friends

    Still one of the best Marine training and combat movies I've ever seen! And the 4KUHD process just made the movie even grittier, louder and even more realistic. Definitely worth the purchase!

    Kubrick in 4K = always a win!

    It’s Kubrick. You know the movie is good. The picture quality is amazing on this 4K, especially in the second half when more colors are on display. It looks like film, so if you hate grain, this won’t sway you, but it does look about as good as it will probably ever look on home media.

    Another Great 4K UHD Kubrick release!

    Owned for 2 months when reviewed.

    Stanley Kubrick's take on the Vietnam War follows smart-aleck Private Davis (Matthew Modine), quickly christened "Joker" by his foul-mouthed drill sergeant (R. Lee Ermey), and pudgy Private Lawrence (Vincent D'Onofrio), nicknamed "Gomer Pyle," as they endure the rigors of basic training. Though Pyle takes a frightening detour, Joker graduates to the Marine Corps and is sent to Vietnam as a journalist, covering -- and eventually participating in -- the bloody Battle of Hué.

    It was AMAZING! It teaches me a lot about what they were like in war. I am actually learning about it right now in school and this movie helped me get an A+ on my science paper! Thank you so much to everyone who made this movie it really helped me out in school and in life. It was a great plot twist when the "fat guy" was getting punished in really terrible ways and then killed there captain and then killed himself wow I thought he would just be happy that he learned how to move his gun but I was wrong....... I am not gonna spoil anymore so if you see this before the movie........................................... GO WATCH IT IT'S SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!

    Purchase experience was poor, but Best Buy more than made up for it by giving me a full refund. (Ultimately it wasn't even their fault. UPS lost the package, and eventually I was given a refund. But the package showed up a month later.) As far as the movie goes, the quality is decent, but I would say it's one of the lower quality 4k Blu-rays I've seen as far as HDR quality.

    Great movie. For a film that is rather drab looking due to subject matter and locations this movie looks fantastic in 4K. Kubrick's film has been restored to the same excellence as his 2001 and The Shining.

    Amazing quality 4K Blu-ray. One of the best 4K films I own, I love the aspect ratio as it is full screen, and the audio is just as great as the 4K image. I would highly recommend purchasing it for the collection!
