Batman 1989 4K
#1
Ok so the new BD and 4K discs have new remixed sound and effects in the Atmos soundtrack.
But word is the lossy 5.1 is a downmix of the new track.
What options do we have? The JP LD sounded better to me than the US one, anyone know any more?

We have PLENTY of options, don't worry about it! We have the 1997 DVD releases of the first four films that are most likely the original theatrical mixes (although they are lossy 5.1 AC3 384 Kbps) In addition to the 2005/2009 DVD/Blu ray mixes, and the 2.0 PCM Dolby Stereo from the Laserdisc to choose from.

So I heard DNR was seen in theaters recently with this new 4K transfer, is the 4K disc DNR free, less DNR or the same?

According to the BD screengrabs of the remastered BD, there is a grain structure present but it's very fine except for the night shots. The biggest concern is the green and blues in the dark shots now look teal/piss, unless that's how they're suppose to look and previous masters were too red and saturated.

I also see some black crush on the new bluray:

I'm not claiming this to be the case, but from my playing around this could be entirely the result of the type of HDR->SDR conversion that was performed. How were these screenshots taken? To know whether there is a real black crush, we'd need an image of the raw HDR video. You know, those very flat looking screenshots.

Judging by this: https://zauberklang.ch/filmcolors/galleries/batman-1989

I would say teal is believable for those shots, though there don't seem to be many photos from the last act (in the church/cathedral), so it's hard to say whether it should be blue or teal. Have to say I never found the blue shots on the Blu Ray terribly convincing and the photos on zauberklang actually look pretty darn good in my opinion.
