About this deal

The one I was initially hesitant on was Ana de Armas, as she’s not exactly an established actress (and the movies I’ve seen her in she wasn’t always top notch). The only way this presentation could have been better is if Dolby Vision had been available on disc, but what's here is likely to be the best there ever will be on physical media. Bassheads, action junkies, and sci-fi aficionados are going to LOVE this mix, as it is easily one of the best Atmos mixes of the year. Now, looking at this film from a visual aspect here, in terms of filmmaking, I have to honestly just first geek out. In fact, I’d say it’s arguably the least aggressive HDR image I’ve seen (though there is some nice refinement going on in the picture’s dark areas).

Add this clean finish to the clarity of the resolution and the extreme sense of depth the image enjoys, and you become completely immersed in the visionary world Villeneuve is presenting.So with that knowledge firmly in the forefront of our minds we get to delve into what it means to be human, and what it means to be artificial at the same time. Blade Runner 2049 builds a whole universe of big questions to answer; layer upon layer of metaphysical reflection which could fuel a whole franchise that fans might actually champion to see.

Generation 8 models could live much much longer than the 4 years of the old ones, but also shared some of the “freedom” issues that plagued older models. As I detailed in my review for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Blade Runner, I discovered the film under pretty unique and very memorable circumstances that made me an instant fan of that film.Multiple viewings allow you to soak up the film's details and 4K Blu-ray is the best avenue for that. Don’t get me wrong, it’s FANTASTIC to see Deckard come back to life, but the third act feels a bit too long at times, with Ford taking center stage for reasons unknown.

A young blade runner's discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who's been missing for thirty years.

This film takes place in Los Angeles and the year 2049, thirty years after the first film took place ( 2019). Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos.

We’re proud to promote an environment that allows for discourse benefiting everyone (newcomers to the experienced) and owners of all levels of gear (affordable to the high-end) while encouraging open and friendly conversation. Fine detail is excellent, whether it's the track conveying the crunch of footsteps on snow or the noise Joi makes when she transitions.

The accompanying audio presentation is just as magnificent as the video, delivered in the guise of an object-based immersive audio track. Watching his face when he so desperately wants to feel something for Joi, and the moment when he comes to realize that his memories about the horse are real.
