Looks like I'll be downloading this one. Digital only is a joke.
No physical copy, hopefully one will appear in the future, for me no purchase until there is.
I wouldn't bet on it if Sony are in the game. Most of their new or upcoming catalog Blu-ray releases will be overpriced BD-R "Made on Demand". Even brand new movies like "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" are just gettng a BD-R release.
I guess even if they did release this on a physical format, it would be an overpriced MOD BD-R. The physical future does not look good from Sony.
Totally agree. What a bunch of bullshit!!!
Horrible. No blu = no sale to me.
I don't even understand why Sony is so shit with bluray releases. Isn't the platform their baby? You'd think they'd be the ones setting a standard but instead they're just embarrassing themselves.
It is, especially now,when they are also pushing Ultra Blu-Ray.
Hopefully, we'll get a proper international disc release, in the near future.
After seeing how unreal The Shallows and The Revanant look in 4K, I really hope the studios support this medium more.
I think it will continue to grow.
I'm glad that they are also releasing catalog titles in 4K.
I got the pleasure to watch the original Ghostbusters and Labyrinth in 4K, over at my friends place, on a 65 inch screen, and they looked amazing!
The colors, thanks to HDR, in Ghostbusters, especially during the climax, was jawdropping.
The regular Blu-Ray, looks washed out and pale in compairison
Do you have to have a special blu ray player or TV to watch 4K? Honestly, I haven't paid too much attention to 4K, but if I were to buy any, they better play on my unit know or forget it. I'm tired of transitioning every ten years. I have too much invested in regular blu as it is.
Yeah, you need a 4K TV, and an Ultra Blu-Ray player, or console that supports the format, like the new Xbox One S.
Also, if you want to experience the improved colors and contrast, that the format offer, you need a 4K TV with HDR capability.
Most 4K tv's feature HDR today. Except for the cheaper ones.
If it doesn't have HDR support, you will still get to enjoy the improved resolution, but the contrast and colors are the same as on regular Blu-Ray.
But I only really recommend it, if you're getting 55 inch and above. Below that, you might not get the full benefit of the higher resolution, depending on your viewing distance to the TV. Though HDR is still going to shine, on any size and distance
Ghostbusters may look amazing, but I doubt that HDR had anything to do with it. In order to benefit from HDR, everything in the chain from when the film is shot to the moment you play the movie has to be HDR compatible, and HDR capable movie cameras didn't exist in 1984.
I have a 42 inch now. It might look amazing, but it's not a priority for me. Thanks for the info.
DVD and Blu-Ray has a limited range when it comes the the colors and contrast, compared to what you get on 35mm.
What a HDR is doing, is finally delivering the full dynamic range of colors and contrast.
"Features like High Dynamic Range (HDR) sound like incredible digital innovations designed to help ensure you don’t blow your highlights, but the reality is that HDR was invented on film, as early as the 19th century. So much for innovation."
Edit: Sorry for going off topic guys
Crappy quality, but here are a few extended and extra scenes, that was shown on channel 4 in the UK:
HDR involves combining multiple exposures. Film resolution and color has little to do with it. It certainly wasn't used in the original production. HDR can't restore what was never captured to begin with.
Well, Ghostbusters was mastered in HDR. But guess it's just an conversion then?
We watched scenes on the films he had, incl Ghostbusters, where we watched them with both HDR on and off, to see what difference it actually made.
And when turned off, the contrast, blacks and colors, looked like the regular Blu-Ray, but when enabled, the colors looked more natural and dynamic (The fight against Gozer is a great demo scene for this), color banding in darker scenes and skies disappeared, and more details in shadows etc, that was crushed otherwise, became visible.
Hope you get a chance to do the same comparison, and you will see what I mean
I just bought the recent Ghostbusters 1 and 2 digibook blu-ray's so the price needs to drop significantly before I consider picking them up. In response to Harry's point about not wanting to start over as many of us did with blu-ray once it came out, I completely agree. I'm not replacing all of my blu-ray's. Seeing The Shallows in 4K with HDR is a revelation. It's really like you're there and makes a decent film that much more enjoyable.
Getting back on topic, Sony blows.
Yeah, I will only upgrade my favorites (if there is a big enough improvement), the rest I will upscale, and just focus on new stuff.
And, yes, Sony sucks for not giving this a disc release.
I just don't understand the reason for this.
