Cas says:Says a lot about the quality of films this year that virtually the entire top 10 is made up of older re-releases.
If this was about the actual best discs for p/q and audio then the list would look a lot different.Although some of the latest releases provide hard-to-argue-with demo material, there's something quite special about a native 4K Dolby Vision rendition of a classic masterpiece
Indeed. Plus the tape won't wear out during the Lisa Bonet 'scene'...Not purchased to Many UHD discs this year , a new display and spinner though has given me a taste once again . So cheers @Casimir Harlow As I will treat myself to Alien , Iron Man , Casino and Angel Heart . Not watched the latter since VHS days so will be like watching a new film.
I agree, but Fox haven’t done this too much with their library titles. Same goes for Predator, Die Hard and Prometheus - but DTS X Neutral / Dolby Surround do a very good job of approximating DTS X / AtmosI know I've said it before , many times but a film such as Alien crud out for a 3d object based mix . It has such a great soundstage that would be greatly enhanced with an Atmos or DTS X mix. The landing on LV426 inside the cockpit for example has always been a favourite on the sound front .
Alien does indeed look great, watched it in HDR10+.Cheers Cas
The ones that blew me away this year were Alien and The Shining... couldn't believe how good they look.
While Avengers: Endgame is an excellent movie, the PQ in UHD is not good enough to make the list.Says a lot about the quality of films this year that virtually the entire top 10 is made up of older re-releases.
Personally I would have put avengers end game in there as well.
Thanks for the list though Cas, hope you had a great Christmas.
Hold tight, looks like Don't Look Now is getting a re-release (standard 4K edition) in January.Really annoyed I missed Don't look now on release as it’s twice the price now on eBay.
I’ve never seen it, but this format sounds like the one to finally see it on.
Hopefully will get a cheaper version released .. may have to go digital as it’s nearly 1/4 of the price (come on suppliers, we are trying to keep this format alive!)
Some great titles Cas, we watched The Shining last night and it looked stunning.
Apoc is a classic and bar a few noisy grain scenes in the sky, I thought it was a gorgeous transfer.
With Jaws having a 2019 cinema release I really hope to be reading it on your 2020 best of UHD list!!
