Dredd - Page 2

post #31 of 231
I saw it in the 3D at 2 different Cinema chains. At 1 it looked really, really good. At the other it looked slightly out of focus and not as immersive. YMMV.

Interesting.... looks like this 7.1 DTS-MA track hits home video with another Neo-X enhanced track.

According to the Hi-Def Digest review:
Quote:
Lionsgate splurges on 'Dredd', giving us a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix with DTS Neo:X compatibility. As you can read from an info graphic on the disc, Neo:X is a protocol that allows for a fuller sound mix for up to 11 channels of sound. My receiver, while strong, is not high-end enough to support Neo:X, but I don't mind because the lossless 7.1 mix I can hear is absolutely exceptional.....

...I watched 'Dredd' three times for this review and saw it in the theaters, and found new surprises in the sound mix with each viewing. I can't imagine how it could be better with Neo:X, but if someone does hear that encode, please let me know what you think. As it is, the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix is one of the best I've heard all year.

Huh, no noise was made about that!

Yeah, really. Just caught that this morning looking at two BD review sites I visit.

I was like, "woah! Alright, cool." tongue.gif

I had no idea it had already come and gone in theaters.
post #41 of 231
Well, I've already got the US disc.

No idea how the 3D version is, as I don't have a 3D setup, but I was reasonably pleased with the 2D transfer.

Some of the green screen shots look a bit more obvious than I remember from my 3D theatrical viewings,but aside from that, I'd no real issues with the presentation.

There was only one shot, where I felt that noise was a problem, as it was on a character's face, emerging from shadows.

The audio is ridiculous. Extras are poop.

Lionsgate? Wonder if they will neuter the rental copies audio?

Watched this one tonight in 2D. Frankly, I didn't like the movie much at all and thought the 90's Stallone version was better (which isn't saying much). The plot can be summed up with "two cops in a 90 minute battle up through a futuristic after the apocalypse slum building to nail a drug lord." There's little to no dark humor, pointed social commentary or intelligence behind the script evident in a movie like the original Robocop which would be a appropriate and vastly superior comparison. Broken down to it's most basic, it's really just an excuse to show numerous people getting killed mostly by gunfire via slo-mo with an almost fetish-like fascination to detail.

That said, I have to admit this movie looks stunningly beautiful with the richly saturated color and sound design. It's digital eye candy of the highest order and I imagine would look amazing in 3D. Visually, the one movie it immediately reminds me of is "Punisher: War Zone" which lousy though that one was, I think was a much more enjoyable flick.

I thought it was just me....I saw this at the theater and thought the Stallone version was better...Stallone's movie had a humongous budget and had more of a sci fi look with the androids and mutants. This is a basic cop buddy movie only disguised as sci fi. Two cops raid a high rise basically. Stallone was in the city, out in the mutant wasteland....I may give this another go on blu ray if January is slow.

I was quite disappointed: a lot happening, but not much going on, like Total Recall. Quite frankly I'm bored with remakes and generally prefer the originals: I think it signifies a saturation of creative ability when you start to copycat.

Its sooooo not a remake
post #54 of 231
it might be my memory failing but im sure at the cinema it had a few moments where the 3d came beyond the black bars (they reduce the ratio so the 3d effect looks more pronounced) one scene that came to mind is someone being shot through the mouth in slo-mo and the spatter came through the z plane on the blu-ray it all stayed within the black bars!
it does have some good 11.2 effects though lots of use of the width channels:)

it happens in quite alot of 3d movies (iirc, wrath of the titans, life of pi, mr. stink to name but a few) its a way of poking out of the screen more, i could tell there was a good 3d section coming in life of pi as i noticed the ratio change wink.gif

So apparently that effect is still present in pirated copies of the movie. Whats going on here, somewhere in the world theres a superior blu ray encode or something..
