About this deal

Full Metal Jacket is an intense yet darkly funny war film that continues to force the question of the duality of man as Joker so delicately put it and still carries on that message today in modern political climates. Definitely a must for 4K enthusiasts and maybe those who are weary of catalog titles… give this one a shot!

Lee Ermey), in particular the slow-minded Pyle ( Vincent D’Onofrio); while the second half follows one of the other recruits, Joker ( Matthew Modine), during his time in Vietnam writing for Stars and Stripes magazine. I have to reward them for putting the audio commentary on the 4K disc, as that really proves to be useful. Joker tries to keep Pyle in line, but his slowness and lack of physical stamina provide him with a world of verbal and mental abuse.

Last year it was Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s masterwork, “The Shining” (1980) which also received Warner’s reference-quality 4K presentation. A hard-hitting movie laced with moments of dark humour and brimming with social commentary, Full Metal Jacket is viewed as one of the all-time great war movies, with breakout performances for Modine and Vincent D’Onofrio, while R. Over the course of this film, you’ll see how that war is hell just as the phrase goes and what it can do in terms of desensitizing the soldiers along the way. Joker tells his superior about a rumor that a large-scale attack may be launched during the Tet holiday. As is pretty much form for them, Warner don't bother with any kind of 3D object-based immersive audio track, but that's not really the end of the world, with them here repurposing the decade-plus-old lossless audio with a new DTS-HD MA 5.

AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM The DC Super Hero’s Action-Packed Adventure Debuts on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12th! The greens of training fields and the burning reds and oranges of fire and gunfire all look like they would in real life.Warner’s Ultra HD release presents the film in native 4K, newly scanned from the original camera negative by Warner Bros. I think this looks stellar, and yes it has some rough scenes with a bit excessive film grain early on but that’s very much likely how Kubrick intended this to look. Color, grain structure, densities, shadow detail, all perfect, as would befit viewing a digital representation of an original camera negative. Lockhart” ( John Terry), his cameraman “Rafterman” ( Kevyn Major Howard), as well as some other troops like “Animal Mother” ( Adam Baldwin), “Eightball” ( Dorian Harewood), “Lt.

The new DTS-HD track has a tiny bit more weight to it than previous releases but is still front heavy for a good portion of the film. Overall, the bonus materials here are just the original 2007 Blu-ray extras (on that disc) as well as the audio commentary also on the 4K disc. The HDR grade is subtle, which is good in that it preserves the film’s original look while still adding depth and nuance to its palette—just don’t expect the colors to really pop, or highlights to gleam brightly, as they might on a modern film. The movie is phenomenal in every way imaginable and is one of Kubrick’s very best, but then you likely already know this. Although Kubrick shockingly only made a dozen feature films over a near half-century career, and this one isn't anywhere near the top ( 2001, The Shining and Dr.
