I spent a little time last night trying to compare the new Blu-ray against the old and in motion the texture/detail of everything look very impressive and more natural. RAH touches on it below, but the first thing I noticed was how much more intense and lively David and Jennifer's eyes were, quite mesmerizing. I really have no idea whether or not the bolder coloring is more or less accurate, but it certainly looks more appealing. The framing is zoomed in on some shots and zoomed out on others for reasons I can't comprehend, but nothing egregious stood out.

Sets and costumes that used to blend together in beiges and browns (or were blown out white) all carry subtle hues I don't recall ever seeing before. There's a little note in the case from Brian Henson about the 4K transfer and remaster being the largest effort ever taken for this movie and I'm inclined to believe him. The Atmos track sounds like a new animal compared to the previous 5.1 mix.

I have not watched the UHD version yet, but I will say that the Blu-ray is dramatically darker in some scenes than before... in a good way, I think. I think the 2009 Blu-ray went overboard on the brightness dial.

Anyway... don't take my word for it:
