Ok I have watched some aspects of the movie on an ISF calibrated Panasonic DX902...I will leave a more comprehensive review asap...overall the picture is definitely step up from the Blu-ray..although to me some of the early scenes look oversaturated with orange with the skin tones, look at when Jim is relaying, the lyrics to moonlight drive to ray on the beach or when, ray sends the group out for a walk, when he is working out the intro to light my fire..even if I except they are in the summer of love in California and everyone is tanned!!!

Deffo has the slightly defused and soft focus in some scenes intentional but retains the detail, were it could become just soft on the bluray ..but overall looks superior to the bluray. There is a doc on how they created the new near field Atmos mix especially for home cinema, which is comprehensive, alas I'm not Atmos enabled ( yet) to benefit from this

great update from oliver stone about approvals , casting etc.

great psychedelic menus screaming out for sound, but its totally silent (opportunity missed) - gives you the option of theatrical or directors cut...

Proper pictures of the US release:

UK back cover:

So, it looks like both UK & US editions are missing the Optimum 20th anniversary Blu-ray's Back to The Roots documentary which I still have (I added the disc to my old US release).

Back to the Roots (55:53) is a documentary from Studio Canal, featuring Oliver Stone, Kyle MacLachlan and others (no further cast members, however) including The Stranglers’ Jean-Jacques Burnel, photographer and close friend of Morrison’s Frank Lisciandro, journalist and Deviants founder Mick Farren and many more. Mixed in with clips from the film, they all talk about working and their experiences with Jim Morrison and the band.

I'll be getting the US UHD then as Jim Morrison: A Poet in Paris is on both my old Blu-rays and it looks pretty good.

Well, couldn't wait for the US disc so went for the Steelbook @ CeX:

No disc 4 (When You're Strange) which is no biggie as I have it already (my US disc has an interview with Jim's father too) and now I can just make a UHD Amaray with all my spare discs.

Had a quick look at the picture and it looks fantastic.
