The audio is freaken unbelievable thought. my only complain is that the subwoofer isn't getting the workout i hoped for, and isn't used in places I though it should be.
Bought the limited Edition S version, if it wasn't for the video quality, it would be a great disc.
Note: I'm viewing on a viewsonic pro8100 120" screen.
I am not a fan of the video in this film.
There appeared to be "video noise" in some of the darker scenes. Perhaps, it is the directors intent, I thought at the time it was over processing.
The level of color-grading/processing is among the worst I have ever witnessed.
The only quibble I have with Ralph's review are the following:
•Color reproduction: attachment.php?attachmentid=109947&d=1210373692
•Flesh tones: attachment.php?attachmentid=109947&d=1210373692
How can fleshtones so obviously manipulated be considered accurate?
I watched one of the one of the extras on the 2D version where commentary filmed with natural color was included between scenes from the film. The commentary flesh tones were accurate and beautiful. The film flesh tones did not.
IMHO, too many films are color graded to the point that they call attention to themselves.
For example, I am brought out of the film by teal snow. (Well, that must the directors intent.)
I am beginning to wonder, if it isn't a prestige think. Clearly, our budget was big enough to color-grade.
Unlike those indy films
When will this "Orange and Teal" nightmare end?
