Solaris (2002) 4K/HDR release?

5 Replies, 1873 Views

So Solaris.2002.BETA.4K.HDR.DTS-HD-5.1-MUBELDAB.mkv got released a few days ago but I can't find anything about it getting a UHD transfer anywhere. I've had a quick look at it and I don't know whether it's just me but it something seems off with it.
Anyone here had a chance to check it out as I'm sure your eyes will be better than mine at discerning its origins?

Intriguing. Soderbergh certainly has been vocal about getting his stuff out on 4k - The Limey has been on Amazon for a while, and here's a feature from a couple of years ago indicating that Solaris was also a strong contender:  https://birthmoviesdeath.com/2018/07/23/...-treatment

Only thing is, I can't see an official release anywhere either. Could this be a leaked copy?
Possibly. I do wonder why they've included the word 'BETA' in the release.
Anyone ever investigate this one?
Here I am!

Hitcher has kindly provided some screenshots; the comparison was made with the 1080p HDTV - I know that BD is better, but that's all I have for now - and I stopped after the first one.

Conclusion: it's a neural/deep learning upscale - not the worse, apart extreme noise/grain reduction, but I'd prefer the real deal...

top HDTV 1080p untouched, normal upscale to 2160p, bottom WEB "4K" HDR converted to SDR:

(hint: look at the sweater, in the middle; this is a clear artifact due to AI upscaling)
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad
