Living With Yourself on Netflix so far has been very enjoyable. You can’t go wrong with Paul Rudd. It’s not really the genre to show off Dolby Vision or WCG but overall the show visually looks decent.

I think I will enjoy "Living With Yourself" better than "The Politician" which I started yesterday but really didn't like much. Not sure I will continue it as it reminded me of "Insatiable" where the characters were so shallow in my opinion. Also, "The Politician" is a Ryan Murphy production and he tends to use a lot of the same actors that I've seen on "American Horror Story" which I don't like either.

I did watch "Far From Home" last night on FandangoNow and thought it was awesome. I would say more than half of the movie had the IMAX scenes. The audio was very good as well.

I was about to say I have been living without Netflix for over a year now and havent missed it much but then I re-read your post again 🙂 and no you can never go wrong with Paul Rudd.

Btw I love 4K and HDR! Just saying so that nobody gets upset this post wasn't about 4K/HDR and the trolls can suck it.

I’m really enjoying Living With Yourself, it gets better with each episode. I lost interest in The Politician after a few episodes but it does show off Dolby Vision well. It’s a colorful, flamboyant production.

Oh lawd. Is this what we've become now? Lol.

P.S. My The Lion King 4K UHD disc arrived early. Let me check... It's in HDR. Whew. That was a close call. Everyone can stop @ing me about no HDRing.

I think it's fairly clear that when people are talking about Netflix, Amazon shows or Blu-rays in this thread, they're talking about HDR content.

The sports discussion wasn't as clear but thankfully was cleared up quickly

If you enjoy the zany Spanish dark humor of Pedro Almodóvar, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, You will probably enjoy Netflix's House of Flowers or Casa de la flores. And the flowers and settings are very pretty.

A fair warning to anyone who's buying or ordered the Bond Collection... the movies are no better than the orignal blurays if not downright identical in both audio and video. There's basically no HDR here. I can say this with certainty for all except Spectre which im sure is the same case. So basically you're buying a $10 bluray version of the movies which may still not be bad deal for some. Thought I'd save someone some money just in case but these are now my lowest upgrade references for UHDs... I shall say no more on the subject but personally I am super disappointed 😕

PS - this is for HDR10 version... DV might be better.

So sorry to hear. I'm definitely waiting for my iTunes versions to upgrade if this is the case. Thanks for letting us know!

I haven’t seen my iTunes DV upgrade yet but I did catch a glimpse of Skyfall and Spectre 4K HDR and their is some improvement to video, not a lot but you can tell some difference in detail. Both of these were 4K DI while Quantum of Solace and Casino Royals (which I’ve only seen YouTube clips of) are just 2K DI. DV should be a little better than HDR10 anyway.

That's disappointing to hear about Bond. Was going to wait for an actual final Craig bundle after the next movie is out, but I might not even do that.

Very disappointed in Casino Royale so far... about halfway through. But I'm looking forward to the last two for sure.

You are in for a big surprise when you watch Skyfall... the surprise will be that it won't look much different than the already excellent Blu-ray. They did clean up the grain on the 2nd one a bit, which they also should've done on the first one but wasn't the case. I dont hate grain and was actually looking forward to how they'd handle it in that first black and white scene but it was just a lot of noise and not much else.
Im gonna add these to the list of movies that desperately need to get regraded - the few I can remember for now are:

Oblivion
Edge of Tomorrow (Stream version only)
Bond Series

I’m sorry, but I respectfully have to disagree. First of all, Skyfall doesn’t have a black and white opening scene, that’s Casino Royale and your right, much less grain in the HDR version. And Skyfall 4K HDR is a little BETTER than the 4K SDR BR. Look at Craig’s face in the opening scene when he comes out of the tunnel. Time stamp is around 64 seconds. More detail in his face, eyes, hair. Not a lot as I said before but it’s a better version than the 4K SDR.

No worries, and yes, I know its the intro in Casino Royale, I kinda jumped around in that post. And the less grain was in QoS, not CR - Casino Royale is loaded with Grain (didn't mind it on the BD) and seems worse at points with a lot of added noise. BTW, I have not seen 4K/SDR versions of any except Spectre and that was actually worse than the BD too.

And I am usually the last person to compare UHDs to blu-rays but the different to me was so minimal I just had to pop in the 1080p BD to see what was going on. To me, while you are watching the movie in 4K/HDR, you shouldn't be able to pin-point small differences here and there... to me the entire experience should be uplifted by a wide margin and so far the format doesn't disappoint except a few mishaps here and there. This just hurts a bit more cuz its some of my fav. movies period.

If I was to rate these on PQ alone, 100 being highest for BD and UHD being 200 -

CR - 100 (at times its worse than BD, in very few instances, its better)
QoS - 130 (Grain has been cleaned up but no HDR)
Skyfall - 110 (Negligible upgrades if any)

I wonder if DV is better than the HDR10 version and if so, by how much.

In my opinion most of the "Bourne" titles need to be regraded as well.

To me, while you are watching the movie in 4K/HDR, you shouldn't be able to pin-point small differences here and there... to me the entire experience should be uplifted by a wide margin and so far the format doesn't disappoint except a few mishaps here and there. This just hurts a bit more cuz its some of my fav. movies period.



If I was to rate these on PQ alone, 100 being highest for BD and UHD being 200 -



CR - 100 (at times its worse than BD, in very few instances, its better)

QoS - 130 (Grain has been cleaned up but no HDR)

Skyfall - 110 (Negligible upgrades if any)



I wonder if DV is better than the HDR10 version and if so, by how much.


We will soon see about DV but typically for me it’s an incremental improvement (maybe 15-20%). I’m a huge Bond fan. I have all of ~24 in 4K on iTunes.

I dont hate grain and was actually looking forward to how they'd handle it in that first black and white scene but it was just a lot of noise and not much else.
Im gonna add these to the list of movies that desperately need to get regraded - the few I can remember for now are:

Oblivion
Edge of Tomorrow (Stream version only)
Bond Series
In my opinion most of the "Bourne" titles need to be regraded as well.
Face palm - I don't know how i forgot those and 100% agree! At least those got Dts-x audio though.

BTW, I have not seen 4K/SDR versions of any except Spectre and that was actually worse than the BD too.



And I am usually the last person to compare UHDs to blu-rays but the different to me was so minimal I just had to pop in the 1080p BD to see what was going on.

15-20% improvement in DV compared to HDR10? If so, what would you say the improvement here from BD/2K to HDR10?

It really depends on which 1080p BR Bond versions you have. Lowry Digital Services was responsible for restoring the films from the original camera negatives to 4K scans and I think they were brought in by MGM in the mid-2000’s. So the BR’s and digital copies out now are all many times better than the originals. HDR and DV can improve on that but that’s not Lowry doing it so it’s hard to quantify. I was just saying in general and in my experience HDR10 and DV can be a great improvement or a minor one. I remember some cases such as Goodfellas where it seemed to bring out more grain and softness but that’s an exception IMHO. Theoretically on paper, HDR10 and DV are bringing in more colors which would mean more clarity and contrast but how much? YMMV.

So basically you're buying a $10 bluray version of the movies which may still not be bad deal for some. Thought I'd save someone some money just in case but these are now my lowest upgrade references for UHDs... I shall say no more on the subject but personally I am super disappointed 😕

PS - this is for HDR10 version... DV might be better.
Thanks. I guess I will be returning the Craig Bond Collection to Bestbuy.
