My kids were watching this (don't worry, they're older ), and I stopped to check it out for about 15 minutes (I believe they were on E3); couldn't agree more, the video quality (including HDR) was just immaculate from what I saw, which was some darker scenes with lights in the background in some shots, some outside scenes, super-clean and very well done HDR!

That is what I thought about the Dolby 3D presentation. It was the best theatrical 3D presentation I have ever seen. Easily besting Imax 3D and Real 3D. Unfortunately Dolby 3D showings are extremely rare. I'm guessing it was so good because of the great black levels that the Dolby theaters have.

So, I saw my first Dolby Cinema showing this evening (Alita). It seems that the AMC within walking distance of my office quietly upgraded one of their screens. It must have been really recent as the room still smelled of new carpet.

I think OLED has ruined me. While it was easily the best theater presentation I've had, I expected a little more out of the black levels. The sound was really great though and it's the only screen in the area with Atmos.

So, while it was easily the best way to see big blockbusters, it just really only felt like an incremental upgrade over the other big screen formats (IMAX and Cinemark XD.)

Try going to the DOlby theater and then going to the Imax or regular theater. Then you see how big a difference it actually is with the black levels. It is not minor in any way. I notice the difference every time I go to a non Dolby theater.

I'm sure that's true, it's just when you are used to absolute black, you can't stop chasing that dragon.

True that!!
It is hard to be impressed after owning an OLED TV.
No matter how big a theater is, I prefer watching my movies in a dark room on my OLED screen and for me it is a huge difference.
Thats why when I saw Ready Player One in a Dolby Cinema for the first time, I was not so impressed.
But the atmos sound was really amazing!!! I still prefer watching my movies on my TV though.
Dolby Cinema is cool once in a while, and I admit it is 100x better than any other cinema, but I bet I impress you more on my LG C6 Oled with some 3D or some amazing Dolby Vision discs.

Let's go OLED and never go back LCD!
Proud LG C6 owner.

Watched it last night and I went in with high expectations after just reading the synopsis. And though my expectations were met with a damn good story and acting, I wouldn't call it oscar worthy lols.
I'd give the movie a 90 for orignal story and twists and I would definitely give PQ a solid 90 as well. But can I give it a 110 for audio? That soundtrack, sound design and bass was Ahmazing!
Not a very colorful movie but good resolution, good HDR and awesome shadow details. Highly recommended!

Coming March 13th from Netflix, Movie "Triple Frontier" will be in HDR. Netflix really starting to kill it. This Netflix original stars Ben Affleck, Oscar Issac, and Charlie Hunnam.


And In case anyone missed the news earlier today, Netflix is going to be making a biography movie about Hulk Hogan, staring Chris Hemsworth as Hogan.

Good article here by former head of Paramount and Fox, praising Netflix saying they've "beaten Hollywood" at their own game.

The Wandering Earth

Can't wait for this to appear on Netflix.

Quote:
The Wandering Earth tells the story of a close future in which the sun is about to expand into a red giant and devour
the Earth, prompting mankind to make an audacious attempt to save planet. The multi-generational heroes build
ten-thousand stellar engines in an effort to propel Planet Earth out the solar system, in the hope of finding a new
celestial home. During the 2,500 year-long journey, a group of daring heroes emerge to defend human civilization
from unexpected dangers and new enemies, and to ensure the survival of humanity in this age of the wandering
Earth.

based on the aritcle I read, I plan on watching it once netflix has it dubbed in english. They need to dub it in 28 or so languages.

Or I could see it in the theater this weekend with subtitles if I wanted. Several of the AMC theaters in my area are showing it this weekend.

I also prefer it dubbed in english. I'm currently watching "The Protector" on Netflix which is dubbed in english which is 4k SDR and it seems pretty interesting. I usually pass on those titles that are only subtitled.

When I made my comment I was thinking of a movie like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Leaving it in Mandarin just fits it so much better IMO.

I agree. I'll check it out this weekend. It's done by Adam McKay, so it's supposed to be funny while enlightening. And supposedly has a bunch of celebrity friends helping explain things each episode.

Really interesting video on HDR grading. Skip to 6:40 as the initial part is basically a Panasonic plug.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 on Apple 4K looks fantastic. Watched it last night and enjoyed it more the second time around. The 4K, HDR presentation is great! I wish HTTYD 3 was playing in the Dolby Cinema.

Thanks that was interesting he was very pragmatic. I agree with the 1000 nits goal, it seems enough for me but I suspect the folks with titles mastered at 4000 nits must be doing something different.

The area of HDR that has not been well address is the color space. There are brightness histograms and master resolution stats but not much on color.
Does the HDR grade preserve the P3 color space from the theatrical version?

I suspect there are titles where the color is degraded from the theatrical release.
For example, Star Wars the Last Jedi had much better reds and color in some scenes that lost all impact on the HDR version.
The splash of red against white sands is a good example. I made a mental note of how striking this looked in the theater.
At home, it was meh on the HDR and SDR version. The HDR and SDR appear more alike that other HDR titles.
The professional reviewer seemed not to notice that there was something lacking, rating this 4K quality at A?

The Black Panther is a reference title where the difference between HDR versus SDR is striking. All colors are bolder perhaps even more so than the cinema.
HDR color should look as good or better than the theatrical release. They are both P3 but HDR can provide increased brightness.

For me, the theatrical release is a baseline that HDR should be able to match or exceed.

I'd give the movie a 90 for orignal story and twists and I would definitely give PQ a solid 90 as well. But can I give it a 110 for audio? That soundtrack, sound design and bass was Ahmazing!
Not a very colorful movie but good resolution, good HDR and awesome shadow details. Highly recommended!
Cannot wait to watch this! I feel like there have been some solid releases in the last 2 weeks.
