Jurassic Park trilogy on UHD BD
#1
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?

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.
