Movie blurays
 
Hey, all!! Who here has had experience with this movie Blu-ray set?

https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product...m2162497.aspx?

I've heard mixed reviews after the fact which I should've read first. It was either this or a four part DVD set. Who else has this that could shed some light on it? Thanks. :)

The 4 Film Favorites (Blu Ray) and the Blu Ray gift set are the same discs. The transfers aren't perfect, but they are far better than the DVD editions.

For some reason, people think "Blu Ray" means "no grain," but the grain is a part of the film. In the case of the first film, it is the result of the dark, moody photography, and I believe the heavy grain during the flashback shots were a stylistic choice. However, the noise, which is sometimes confused with grain, is not as prominent as it was on the DVD version. (On the DVD, when Casey sneaks into the warehouse, the shot had so much noise, it had the same quality as watching a basic channel with bad reception on a tube television.)

Heavy grain on origin story was because Steve used 16mm film on it as stylistic choice to make it old but producers werent that happy about it and it almost didnt made it to the film.Normally its shot on 35mm.
First movie is dark because comics were and its was great choice.

Thanks, guys!! Yeah, I figured it's just part of the charm/transfer. I'm happy just to have them. I also read that Splinter's story to Danny in the first movie has a lost of sound issues too for example.

I like the release. Best resolution so far with all 3 movies.
Too bad there's no bonus material with them not even short interviews or TV spots.

Watching SOTO on Bluray right now. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of it. Noticing a lot of detail in the picture that I hadn't before.

The cover is terrible though -

I have the 3 original movies on Blu-Ray as well. But they did a poor job on the transfer. You have that film grain all over it. Its like they didn't do any cleaning after the transfer. They just transferred straight from the film and did nothing else with it. Movies today don't have that film grain since they digitally remaster them.

Literally on the same page. Five posts above yours. Not too hard to find:

If you think the Blu Ray is bad, check out the DVD version. It had a horrendous amount of noise. The scene where Casey sneaks into the warehouse looked like it was recorded off the USA Network on a crummy tube television with bad reception. The Blu Ray is a godsend compared to that.

Let's face it, the first movie will never look like a contemporary film. There are a number of contributors: the film stock, the lighting, some of it may even be by choice. Personally, I like it. It gives the film a gritty street vibe, kind of like The Warriors.

Apparently according to one site (blu-ray.com?) the second film suffers the worst.
