A fresh 1080p master from the 4K files would be nice, encoded at 30+ Mbit/s.

I'd definitely double dip for that.

msgohan had has some shots demonstrating how truly scrubed the 2007 blu-ray was
post #33 of 150
Was it truly scrubbed or the consequence of a low bitrate VC-1 encode made to accommodate both formats at the time?

To be clear VC-1 is quite capable but, albeit anecdotally, I have observed that it does not appear to resolve as transparent representation as AVC with similar bitrates.

A prime example is with season 4 of BSG, half the season uses AVC and the other uses VC-1. Unfortunately the discs that use VC-1 appear filtered due to most likely the codec not being as efficient with similar bitrate and content.

The only things that would entice me to double-dip are a new encode with greater transparency (properly resolved grain) and The Dangerous Days documentary in HD.

I'd triple-dip (third time's the charm right?) for a new high-bitrate A/V encode from the 4K master files. Even better if they provided lossless audio on all the cuts.

The current restoration of Blade Runner was made at 4k resolution. The BD is based from 4k restoration. The only improvement will encode the new blu ray in avc with hight bitrate.

People may be (I don't know for sure) posting for a "new" 4K scan cause the old one was done half a decade ago.

So , after the massive effort and work on the last set of releases you guys believe that there will be a new restoration/transfer for this ?

No, everyone is hoping that Warner may provide a better encode for the double-dip. Although their track record dictates otherwise.

Years ago someone had some nice comparisons of the Final Cut versus some promo material that exhibited more fine detail and grain preservation. As it stands it looks good but I always felt it could look better.

Transfer for Final Cut? they should but never in a million years would they.
post #46 of 150
I like the look of the Directors Cut in that set. The color is great.

So wait, is this 3 discs or 4? I'm guessing two BDs plus a DVD. Everything from the five-disc set (three BD-25s plus two DVDs) could fit on two BD-50s, with room to spare.

Of course retail is $25 higher anyway, thanks for the trinkets WB rolleyes.gif

This is crap, no on the edge of Blade Runner no remaster, just a toy and a book that will not live up to the definitive one we all already bought.

Very likely those are boilerplate specs copied from some other listing. Just like with Amazon tech specs, take them with a grain of salt until the disc is actually released and someone can confirm.

That's a good doc. It's interesting to hear the various writers who came and went, on the newer documentary on the current Blu-ray set, lament what might have been if they had been given more time to polish the screenplay.

I tend to side with them that Blade Runner was ultimately cool to look at, but had narrative and quite a few character development problems. It was as if Ridley shot a half-completed story.

Give him a great script and Ridley shines, otherwise, he's a visual auteur only.

Hmmm... reminds me of another little Ridley Scott film called Prometheus. biggrin.gif

Where are you getting that info? The initial presser claims that all of the supplemental material from the previous release will be carried over.
