NOT SEEN THE DISC BUT THE MOVIE IS A 10 IN MY BOOK, BRILLIANT THROUGHOUT.
Pity some films like The Green Mile etc are hit and miss picture quality on 4k blu ray disc.Nice review. This is a great film that I have loved for many years. I was really looking forward to this 4K release, but on the basis of the review, I'm glad that I didn't pre-order as it seems that the DNR had been applied too liberally. This is the same reason I've never upgraded the original LOTR trilogy, as I found out that rather than bringing out the quality of the 35mm image, Peter Jackson had decided to DNR the film to make it look like the digitally shot Hobbit trilogy! (Please correct me if I'm being here, but this was my understanding of the releases, despite AVs glowing reviews)
When one looks at the beautiful work done on the likes of Jaws or Close Encounters of the Third Kind or 2001 it is not difficult to realise that a truly stunning image can be found without too much (or even any?) DNR Tinkering.
I'm sure that the colours are quite lovely, but it looks like I'll be sticking with my Blu-rays on this one... and that's not exactly a cinephile hardship.
Keep up the good work.
No wet sponge for you...
It's one of those films that's obviously great in so many ways, but for me personally, one (definitely memorable) viewing is enough. It's pretty harrowing and I'm not sure I'm ever going to say "Ooooh I fancy watching The Green Mile tonight". That might be the closest you get to someone agreeing with you!
I’m pretty astounded at the score for PQ to be honest. I thought it was one of the best I’ve seen in the format and an easy 9/10 for PQ Opinions I guess.
