Pleasant, organic looking image. Very impressive for a movie that is almost 50 years old! Though it's filmic picture looks nice at times it does have heavy grain and some of the images are pretty poor. The variability in quality from an analog source. Some shots had really good details.
Tier recommendation: 1.5
Will rewatch and see! As I said some shots looked really detailed but others looked grainy and horrible. Almost like VHS quality.Snell, I viewed my BD (2014 release) recently--still impressed. During a couple of shots I wondered how 4K UHD handled them. Beach scenes where Chief is gazing toward the swimmers. Hot sandy salty air. I thought film caught it perfectly (remembering my beach bum days), though to some the picture might seem faded. Any thoughts?
Yep, your assessment mirrors mine. I added a few more "superlatives" in my review, which is here:Frozen II
By far and large; the best looking animated movie, EVER. HTTYD3 was a phenomenal top reference movie but Frozen II is next level. It's the sharpest and most detailed I've seen from Disney (or anyone else) bold colours, punchy image with lots of POP I watched this movie quite a while ago but forgot to review it so I don't remember the exact scene, but there's a part where Olaf sings and the entire screen goes black except for the animated character sticking out in '3D space'. That depth, the infinite contrast and absolute black is one the best scenes I've ever scene in a movie.
Tier recommendation: 0 (#1 best-in-class animation)
Yeah it truly is remarkable and deserves all the superlatives you gave it. I see you referenced the same two or three scenes as I did, with the singing that fades to black I haven't watched every animated movie but this one is certainly the best of all I have seenYep, your assessment mirrors mine.

The PQ Tiers remains one of the threads stickied at the top of the Blu-ray Software sub-forum.Forgive me, but where exactly are the PQ Tier lists?
Also, to you frequent reviewers, thank you - I've watched or purchased many movies based on your reviews over the years.
Enjoy! There's not much on the consumer market that looks better than a professionally calibrated C9Just chiming in to say we've had our family here from Phoenix the last 11 days so I haven't had time to rent or buy new Blu-rays.
Oh, and for the FIRST TIME ever, I'm having my OLED professionally calibrated by Chad B (a well-known and highly esteemed touring calibrator) on Monday, August 10th. I can't wait! I've always wanted to see what difference a real calibration can make when every setting is dialed in to "industry standards." I'm still thinking, "How in the world can this display look any better?" and yet that's exactly what I'm anticipating.
