OPPENHEIMER (2023) • 4K Ultra HD Disc • Movie (10/10) • 4K HDR (10/10) • DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (10/10) •
I've been waiting a long time to get my hands on this disc and it arrived on release day in nice SteelBook packaging. I don't go to the cinema anymore, I much prefer to watch films in my home environment.
I'm not going to talk about the film itself, I'm sure most of you have already seen it and formed your own opinions; I would like to share my thoughts on the 4K Ultra HD disc.
Simply put; this must be the best 4K Ultra HD disc of 2023. A mixed aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and 1.78:1 gives the viewer an excellent picture quality in both the colour and black and white scenes. HDR gives the colour scenes a real boost and the whole thing is a joy to behold.
Now, I want to talk about the audio on this thing. Who needs Dolby Atmos when the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is this good. Hold on to your armchairs 'cos the LFE channel is gonna shake your foundations. Deep rich bass helped along by my subwoofer, kept rumbling throughout the whole of the three hours run time and I'm looking forward to experiencing it again very soon.
I'm so glad that I have finally got to see this masterpiece; it must be favoured for an almost clean sweep at next years Academy Awards, with Cillian Murphy a shoo-in for best male actor.
