      Excellent review Cas. I see that my iTunes version has been upgraded to 4K DV to I'll need to revisit the film, which for me, is still the best in the series.

      I really wish Paramount had got the clip from the terrific De Palma documentary about this film. Cruise and Towne yelling at de Palma because he wanted an action scene on top of the train which they hated the idea of. Very happy that de Palma got his way, as it still stands up as being a great set piece all these years later.

      I know it’s a steep price but there are some, like myself, who want the best picture and sound with no compromises. I also prefer to have a physical copy, Just my two cents.
      Thanks for the review and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

      Because
      a) We hate Apple
      b) Do not want to get locked into a digital restrictive ecosystem for purchased content
      c) We don't like Apple
      d) Prefer the best possible quality, disc media is still far superior to compressed audio/video streams
      e) Detest Apple
      f) Prefer a premium quality, 100% reliable hardware delivery chain to a display, and configurations that allows

      In fairness Apple's auto upgrade to UHD for purchased content was very commendable. I also think only a true fan would buy these at RRP on day of release. People that have previous media releases and want to upgrade at some point would wait awhile for a price-drop.

      Slight off-topic but I see you used the LG UP970. Really tempted to pick this player up for the Mission Impossible set and my other DV discs. How is the player holding up since the firmware issues were resolved? I've heard a lot of horror stories but it seems to be the cheapest way, by some margin, to play DV discs.

      Thanks Cas for another great review. :thumbsup:
      I have exactly this LG TV & Player - my UP970 works fine & the picture quality from it is perfect IMO. It CAN be a little noisy with some (not all) 4K disks because of the higher spin speed as obviously it is of plastic construction throughout, but the noise is not noticeable once the Film is playing. The very loud noise problems seem to have plagued the early batches, so you want one that is made Late 2017 on. If you want to be totally safe, though, there is a newer version, slightly more expensive, that as far as I have heard, has no issues.

      Nice review, Cas. Received the boxset last friday & haven't watched yet, decided to watch from Rogue Nation, 5 - 1 in that order.
      ( Haven't got DV, but watched Rogue Nation on friends LG OLED C7 & it was stunning ! )

      I can get one for £120 and return it if it's no good. Might go for it.

      Edit: couldn't resist, ordered one for £106. If I keep it, I'll be ordering the M:I set next month.

      Excellent news!

      This has been crying out for a decent remaster! Will be picking them up, but probably Apple 4K variants.

      Cheers Cas

      The ATV Bundle is definitely tempting, but I still wonder what will happen to the sound - they said that they will do updates to Dolby Atmos, but if like this one there is no Dolby Atmos Track on the physical Disk, will the Soundtrack stay on the Format already available?
      Hmmm. would be great if Apple could be a bit more specific about this :)

      In all honesty it does not effect me, As I usually only have 2.1 running. Will probably move to a decent soundbar purely for the fact we have no room with 2 kids!

      Thanks for the review Cas. It's interesting because my "other" favorite reviewer basically hates this transfer lol.

      I have already watched the Blu Ray of Rogue Nation and the Atmos Sound is pretty nice. Definitely interested in the box set but I don't remember liking the second film at all. It was a bit too stupid for me.

      The first one is a superior movie to the rest... De Palma... :cool:

      The rest have their moments, even the John Woo slow-motion hair advert episode :D

      Is this 5 individual plastic UHD cases in a cardboard sleeve?

      I do want this release as it's my favourite franchise but I'm not paying the steep prices for it when I've already got them all on BD! I'll wait for the price to come down.

      I also don't like the fact that it will be re-released in the very near future with Fallout included!

      Thanks :)

      In that case, I wish Paramount would just release the UHD set on its own... I already have the BDs so I don't need the price artificially inflated!

      The production cost on the extra blurays is trivial... They don't price UHD discs based on cost, rather on what fans are willing to pay for...

      It's just plastic with a bit of lines on it...

      There are some interesting points here about physical media and I wouldn’t argue that the quality on discs is currently superior. But it’s a financial and convenience thing for me - I got the four Jurassic Park films and the five MI films, all in 4K, on Apple TV for £25 (less in fact with the regular in-store iTunes voucher discounts). That is a massive saving.

      Some discs - The Matrix, BR 2049, Gladiator etc - I would always get on disc (and have) but I’ve been through so many film replacements on new formats over the years that I find these occasions to be much more rare. If a download is, say, 13.99 with no extras and only in HD I would never bite, but the 4K JP and MI films look terrific on the Apple TV 4K, were all free upgrades from the HD versions and are so convenient - I’ve got two Apple TVs and can just pick up where I’ve left off in a TV show or film so quickly in comparison to a disc. The possibility of Atmos on newer titles (although presumably not DTS-X) will make the content only more appealing for me.

      I’m not in any way criticising anyone who favours discs - I totally get it, and this week alone I’ve bought Arrow’s The Endless, a Criterion title and two of HMV’s Premium Collection titles. I would also always buy a disc if it contains extras that a download version doesn’t. But personally I can’t continue to buy the same material over and over again at premium prices, especially when these Apple streaming versions come with HDR, DV and up ahead atmos. I also think that Apple’s streaming quality is superb and the films are great value for the most part.

      Cheers

      It's fair to say that Brasstit got this one very wrong.
