Prometheus was eye candy, but that's about it. The movie itself was a hot mess.

I'm going with two fairly recent films: Speed Racer and the imagiarium of Dr Parnassas.

First wow came from Rambo. The sound is phenomenal.
Second wow was Sunshine. Again the sound was awesome.
Years later it was Prometheus. Video, audio, 3D all execellent and a crapload of bonus features.
And Oblivion wowed me for the soundtrack combined with the beautiful imagery.

Terminator (remastered). I was blown away by every detailed shot of that disc. Superb restoration work. The sound was great, too.

Somebody mentioned The Trouble With Harry.I couldn't stand the film BUT it does look brilliant. It's arguably the best looking of all the films in the Masterpiece collection. Some may say reference quality.

Audio wow factor has to be Dredd. My system is dated and doesn't even do lossless, yet that film turns it into some sort of super AV machine.

you can thank Hitchcock and his decision to shoot Trouble with Harry in VistaVision - horizontal 35mm yields greater sharpness and color reproduction - not quite 70mm but pretty damn close. Some shots during the movie on the bluray look like you're looking through a window.

Yeah, didn't Hitchcock shoot a lot of his 50's films inn VistaVision? I don't think anything can beat IMAX photography at the moment. That's the one to beat. Large format filmmaking should be the norm for blockbusters. Not 3D and the like.

while sadly 70mm is rare (let alone theaters that can present it as such) - 'Samsara' and 'The Master' showed why the format shouldn't just up and die - Nolan should have filmed the entire 'Interstellar' as such (the DCP and future bluray would have looked stunning).

in terms of blurays that recently impressed - I'd have to say the Japanese bluray of Miyazaki's Porco Rosso - the colors and sharpness just seared the eyes with such intensity.

Yeah, completely agree with you. It's such a powerful and immersive format that you'd think more studios and filmmakers would go out of their way to shoot with it. Interstellar isn't entirely shot on IMAX, true, but I have it on good authority that a majority of it is shot on IMAX, even more than The Dark Knight Rises, and that had a good amount, so it's still a step up and i'll be there at my IMAX on opening night for what's, sadly, likely to be the last IMAX film shot.


I have noticed that 16mm is making a comeback and is pretty strong these days, though. Even the new Spiderman film was shot on film. The digital revolution isn't dominating as much as people think.

The last BD I saw sourced from 16mm was Beasts of the Southern Wild. The look complimented the tone of the film perfectly.

As far as being recently "wowed" I'd have to say The Hobbit: DoS. I've been purchasing a lot of older films and bargain bin titles with good to average A/V quality lately, I hadn't watched a stellar new release in awhile prior.

Haven't seen Beasts yet but it sounds interesting. Hurt Locker makes a good looking 16mm blu ray.

I know what you mean about wanting to watch a new release and have the full benefits of 1080p and good audio come into play. At times I too find myself tempted to just buy films like Pacific Rim and the like just to show off to my flatmate

I might check out Obvlion though. Everyone says that's a great showcase blu ray and it at least sounds like it's something I could potentially enjoy despite having no urges to see it.

yes, while the story has it's flaws, the movie is breathtaking to watch in terms of the colors - the saturation levels are rich and have this image *pop* to them - I'd love to see an actual 4K DCP instead of the 2D 3D DCP to compare brightness and clarity.

I was watching the 'Focus Points' earlier on the making of Pacific Rim and it really didn't dawn on me til after watching the doc and then the movie how varied the color palette is used and gives the film it's multitude schemes and moods - the sharpness of the disc is amazing in that some scenes, it looks like some of the characters actually might step out of the TV.
