I know it depends on the scene but there are plenty of scenes in light that are pretty low imo. Can you see this. Yes, I can see the softness and the grain is not always pleasing or really even noticeable. It's far from a bad transfer I just take a position that if you have space frickin' use it that is why we are paying high prices for these films versus DVD. Because I don't want DVD bitrates if the space allows for it. At the theater they are using 4k 250Mbps as standard. For this I would hope they would try and not drop to below 10Mbps so much.
As for the briefcase I was asking why this film in particular got such extravagant packaging. I didn't quite think it was a classic myself. I never saw it in the theater but I have a hard time believing it was as soft as the bluray gets even in 1080p. Who knows I could be wrong.
It isn't a "classic" to receive a briefcase like Blade Runner, I will agree.
However, my friend saw it 6 times in theaters, and he said that even in theaters, several scenes are much softer than others, and the film suffered from some minor problems. The Blu-ray is probably the real deal.
