Jurassic Park trilogy on UHD BD

16 Replies, 8372 Views

Only seen comparisons on caps-a holic vs 2D BD; obvious increase in resolution, but grain is almost gone, and I personally prefer BD color grading (don't know if it's due to a wrong HDR-to-SDR conversion, tough).

Opinions?
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

Yea, the comparisons are disappointing, the first one looks just like the old master (same poor cropping as well) with only a slight uptick in overall resolution, nothing like the 4k master used for the 3d version (which was a travesty in its own right). So much for all three supposedly been new 4k's taken from the o neg. Hope the first MI UHD doesn't end up been a disappointment like this.

Doesn't bode well for BTTF either..
It's not just down to a bad HDR/SDR conversion. The colours are weird on my HDR setup as well. Take a look at Hammond's glove in this shot:

Really disappointing. Seems to be the old master. I don't know what the status of the scan was for the 3D rerelease, but I do know the same remaster exists in 2D DCP, too. I was expecting the UHD release to look just like the 3D/2D remaster.
In other words, typical Universal crap.

I don't know why there'd be an HDR-to-SDR conversion. Surely, for screenshots, both would be converted to RGB.

I'm fact, converting UHD content to RGB is something I have been wondering about. Obviously, when going straight from UHD to standard HD, avoiding a conversion to RGB and back is desirable; but for many of our projects, going to RGB is probably inevitable. (Of course, this probably belongs in another thread...)

Oh, and this does indeed look like a typical Universal release.

Blu-ray.com has posted the reviews: the better upgrade seems to be The Lost World, which is the silverlining 'cause it was the worst on Blu-ray. But overall the boxset is a disappointment.
Disappointing to say the least! Did anyone ever fix the colors on the 35mm release? It looked pretty awesome otherwise.

It looks like we are in a strange situation where there still exists a 'theatrical' colour grade as well as a 'home video' grade. Die Hard seems to be a similar case.
