Or you could pay $100 for a region free player and be done with it.

Just played the BD on my projector and those claiming that the PQ is outstanding after watching this on a large display need a sight test. It's a marginal upgrade over the DVD, but this clearly is based on a dated HD master. It's the type of HD master suitable for a DVD release, but not for BD, lacking in definition, with ugly edge enhancement plaguing every shot and the grain gets turned into digital fuzz. Worth getting if you are a fan of the film, but as an HD release it's disappointing. I can also confirm that this is region B only.

It's not outstanding but it's definitely a good upgrade!

I never said it was outstanding earlier. I did say it was a big improvement over the DVD on a 50" screen - and it is. I can imagine it looking not so great on a very large screen though.

I don't need the "proof", I watched the BD last night and saw with my own eyes that it doesn't look good. Not sure why people keep getting defensive on behalf of sub-par releases.

Default Solaris Limited Edition Steel book

https://www.amazon.de/dp/B078B3YCJQ/ref=pe_3044161_185740101_TE_item

Looks good enough for me, not sure how extras stack up.

Luckily, hard facts and visual evidence overrides what you "make" your eyes see (or not see). It's a substantial upgrade over the DVD, period. Sorry if you incorrectly think it should look like a video game.

Will it play in the States? Region A? Region Free?

It's region B locked. I feel like they must hate regular packaging. So far it's been released as a Digibook, then Digipak, and now a FuturePak (not a Steelbook).

I wonder if the disc will be fixed with this steelbook release? Not that it was much of a problem anyway really.

Please quote me where I said anything like that.

I don't know what tiny ass display you watch your Blu-rays on, but on a projector this doesn't hold up.

Of course, this release is a substantial upgrade over the DVD.

That doesnít mean itís not a terrible release, though.

This is constantly and consistently on the HBO channels so often that I'm going to get so sick of watching it... to the point where I won't care that it's not on Blu-ray in region A.

Haa
