After reading reviews (with less-than-stellar marks for the movie itself) I decided to visit a local Redbox. The movie was indeed disappointing, especially when comparing it with the original (1976). The PQ was much more satisfying, but it had its issues, namely, some SOFT SHOTS and HEAVY GRAIN...which resulted in a lack of details and depth. The color palette was also nothing to brag about...very MUTED throughout with the exception of some isolated scenes. I found that the PQ got better and better as the movie progressed and during the last half it was worthy of Tier 0. Not so much in the first half.
Tier Recommendation: 1.0*
PS The Dolby Atmos mix was pretty good. I did have to turn my volume dial to about -5 to really appreciate it though.
