Arrow Video release also has the correct opening credits without the automatic scratch removal mistake of the German Blu-ray.

The scratches that Scavenger mentioned is a legit complaint, not sure why they didn't clean that up. Some will have issues (still) with the slightly soft image of this film, but that's Re-Animator and it's true to source.

Thanks you two- and yeah, it's a soft film to begin with. A 35mm viewing I went to really drove home how much of a drive-in feeling it has going for it.

I'm glad to finally have it. I've never seen any version of the movie...at least as far as I can remember. But I've always wanted to. I'm planning to watch this with my brothers before watching Blade Runner 2049.

watch the 3 prequels as well.

Blade Runner UHD Blu-ray is arriving from Target early next week.

Time to find out what all the fuss is about.

I'm curious to see if others have the glitch at the end that mine does. Hope not. Be pretty terrible if it got recalled due to the wrong disc thing, and then people get it after all this time and the 4k discs have an annoying ass glitch in them.

I was gonna post a gif of it, but now it's not doing it. What the fuck!? I checked it twice on my Sony player and once on my Dad's Samsung. It was there before on both players. Now it's fine suddenly. I checked the disc before and didn't see anything on it or wrong. Bizarre stuff. I'll have to check it again later or tomorrow and see if it reappears.

I saw copies at the Empress Walk Best Buy north of Yonge and Shepard. I saw another store in Brampton in stock. Got mine from Sunrise.

Ah, thanks. I tried looking for other video sources, but couldn't find any. I'll just watch them on YouTube tomorrow with my older brother, then. We just finished watching Blade Runner: The Final Cut. I hadn't watched it before, and it's really good! Looking forward to watching Blade Runner 2049 soon. My older brother's watching it with a friend (who apparently wrote a paper on the first movie) on Sunday. I might go watch it with my younger brother after he gets back from a trip he's on.

Oh, yeah, this was also my older brother's first time watching a movie on my setup. He really likes it!

I wasn't sure if I should post this here, a different thread, or make a new thread about it myself.

So I came across this thread on another forum. Shows some pretty interesting leaks. Well, "leaks" cause I have no way to tell if its fake or not. Anyways according to this guy, other major studios are finally adapting the Disney Movie Anywhere model to allow purchases across platforms (like UV but for the legit services like Amazon, iTunes, etc.) Seems VUDU leaked it.

Evidence?



So yeah... Anyone know anything about this? Google turned up absolutely nothing on this.

My DVD seems to be anamorphic. I bought it at Walmart for $5 back in March.

That, or my Blu-ray player is tricking me somehow. But I never messed with any DVD settings (just checked, and there aren't any), and even the menus had proper widescreen. I'll post some shots in a moment.

Itís not anamorphic. Your player is altering things. It is old fashioned letterboxed and not enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Same as Abyss. And it is a damn shame.

The Dolby Digital sound mix is still great though.

Yeah, on my laptop, it's showing up like this. I guess my Blu-ray player can detect that and adjust automatically. I didn't know that they could do that. It looked alright while I was watching it.

While the movie showed up like that on my laptop, the menus showed up in widescreen!

I did see it mentioned before that it wasn't anamorphic, but my Blu-ray player tricked me all of this time.

A few years back I used the DVD to redeem a digital copy of True Lies using Vudu's disc to digital program. While not great it's a much better transfer than the outdated DVD.

Well it shows off hdr beautifully but for 4K you should watch something digital like planet earth 2. Blade runner resolution doesnít look much better than 1080p version.

Iíve just never seen Blade Runner.

I expect it to be up my alley, but definitely didnít expect the 4K aspect to blow my mind. Want to grab Planet Earth II when it drops in price a bit.

Dunno if it's been posted, but Amazon is having a UHD promotion -- Buy 3 UHD movies for $49.99. Over 100 to choose from.

I already had 10, just copped 6 more with the promotion. May use this to fill out the collection some more later this week.

That is a good deal. Unfortunately there isn't three titles there I REALLY want and I know I'll be able to get them on sale prices eventually. Good for people that find stuff they like.

Waiting for that Spider-man: Homecoming to release.

Same.. thought about the planet of the apes ones.. but the trilogy set is $50 as it is.

I have most of the rest I'd want, or they're already on sale for $14.99-$20, which makes this not much of a sale.

Bleh. I want to spend money too!

Assume UHD disks follow the same region system as normal Blurays etc?

Would love to take advantage of that Amazon deal but I live in Australia, doubt they will work. If it changes anything my UHD player is an Xbox One S(And Xbox One X when it comes out).

Watched Kick Ass a few days ago. Looked good. Nothing mind blowing, but damn solid. Hit Girl "saving" Big Daddy and Kick Ass is such an amazing scene. Was worth getting the 4K just to see that moment.
