Terminator: Dark Fate (1080p)
PQ-wise, this was a "mixed bag" or maybe I should call it a "day and night mixed bag," meaning the scenes that took place outdoors during the DAY were very good, while the NIGHT scenes were less-than-stellar. The former scenes had striking DETAILS, vibrant COLORS, spot-on FLESH TONES, super CONTRAST, and striking CLARITY (in most shots). The latter scenes had BLACKS leaning towards DARK GRAY, some definite SOFTNESS resulting in a lack of DETAILS and DEPTH, and a few instances of NOISE.
The real "redeeming feature" of this title was the BOMBASTIC Dolby Atmos mix. WOW...I mean WOW!! What more can I say?!
The movie left much-to-be-desired, but I've never been a fan of the Terminator Franchise so fans may have a different take on it.
