If this clip represents what they did (I haven't checked the rest of the movie YET) then I advise not to buy it. Indeed the original audio isn't anywhere to be found in this 4K. The first part of that Youtube clip is from the regular 1080p Blu-ray (not the remastered one).

Why Crapner has to ruin these movies in so many ways? I took a few pictures from the old Blu-ray vs. the 4K, in my PC, using madVR as the MPC-HC's video renderer. Madvr will automatically send the HDR metadata to the TV when it is HDR capable. Otherwise it will convert the video to SDR so we can watch it (with proper colors) on a normal monitor/TV. My monitor is an old W2452V and the video card is also outdated: AMD R7 265.

If these caps in any way represent this release as it actually is... then Crapner did their digital tinkering AGAIN. And one thing I don't understand is why the change in the aspect ratio, notice how the 4K crops more than the old 1080p.

Oh, and before someone kicks me for posting these pictures: first take some time to look what they did with the Superman movies:

4K vs old 1080p from Superman: The Movie:

Superman II (DVD vs. 1080p):

Superman IV (DVD vs. 1080p):

Batman (1989) appears OK but the changes applied to a few scenes look really wrong to me. For example the first scene where Batman appears is too dark (haven't I seen the same issue in STM? hum...), and the one where he is fighting the Joker in the end was changed to reflect a BLUE light that isn't in the old 1080p release.

The movie appears darker and with a blue tone.

Why these reviews don't take any time to compare the old vs. new? Am I the only one left that cares about how faithful a movie is in these releases? If that's the case then all is lost.

I predict in the future only colorized versions from black and white classics will be released... considering where things are going. If they start doing that I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest.
