Well the bluray is remastered making it a decent future-proofed buy.

It's worth pulling the trigger. $14.99 is a really good price for this release, and it's never gone lower than that since its release. Not only that, but this is a film that looks incredible in 4K, and as stated above, the lossless 5.1 track is a welcome improvement. The Blu-ray included with it can even hold you over until you get a 4K player.

I would buy from Amazon more often if I knew I was getting a slipcover.

I saw somewhere recently that Unforgiven is an Unofficial Sequel to the Man with No Name trilogy, is this correct?

It was dedicated to Leone and Siegel. Nothing more.

Eeh, not really. But part of what makes the film work is that you have Clint playing a retired gunfighter who did questionable things in the past without elaborating on what they are, but as a viewer you can use your memories of seeing him in his previous westerns to colour in that background however you see fit.

They don't go into detail, but the way they talk about his past in Unforgiven makes him appear to have been pure evil in his younger days (even though doing most of his evil deeds while being drunk apparently). A killer of women and children according to Little Bill. Basically a much worse person than I'd ever imagine his character from the Dollars trilogy to be.

If someone bought this on sale and doesn’t want/need the regular blu-ray, please consider messaging me, as I’d love to buy it from you and make your sale price even that much lower.

This has one of the most stunning of UHD transfers to date, why stick to just the BD?

I finally watched my 4K UHD Blu-ray disc of Unforgiven this evening.

I watched the remastered standard Blu-ray when I first bought this set before I was equipped for 4K, but the actual 4K disc takes the beauty even farther for a wonderful presentation befitting of what I saw at the theater back in 1992. This is why ultra high definition is where it is at, my friends.

I have already reviewed this movie several times over, and my opinion of it as one of the most deserving Best Picture winners in cinema history still stands.

I am sad right now, though...

When I saw Unforgiven in 1992, shortly after the Los Angeles riots in response to the Rodney King verdict, the movie seemed quite timely for its era. Gene Hackman had even modeled his lawman character after Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates. Everything about this movie seemed so specific to those days, with its portrayals of innocent people who became collateral damage of the times, of bad guys who were not so bad, and of good guys who were not so good.

Today, in 2020, Unforgiven is still just as applicable to current events. It is almost as though we did not learn anything from the film over the past 28 years, and that history is a cycle that just repeats itself.

I ought to cheer up and stop dwelling on things. At least the picture quality of the 4K disc puts a smile on my face.

The HD audio track on this makes the previous DVD and blu versions sound like VHS tape. It was worth upgrading for that alone in my book.

For instance, though I like many films from the '80s, the ones that lean the hardest into the excesses of the era -- like Top Gun or The Breakfast Club, etc. -- I find almost unbearably hokey. Which is not to say they're bad films, they're just not really to my preference. The Golden Age of Hollywood style is just that: a style. It's just a difference of how drama and violence were portrayed, and many films of the Old Hollywood style are excessively melodramatic and have almost none of the cynicism that has come to define filmmaking since the 1970s. But you know this, of course. Do I roll my eyes during some scenes in classic films, even ones I like? You betcha. Romance scenes are generally the worst, with schmaltzy dialogue and some of the most awkward "courting" I've ever seen in my life. But part of the reason different filmmaking eras are interesting is they reflect how society viewed itself in different periods. Most classic westerns are reflective of a general positivity about America and the world that has since fallen by the wayside in the last few decades, for better or worse. But I'm rambling, here.

Example: The Searchers is one of my favorite films, any genre. But the love story between Martin and Laurie can wear on the nerves. It's not so much the angle itself as the "aw shucks" execution, but that's endemic to the period. You either accept it or you don't, similarly to how one has to come to terms with almost every film under the sun being 65% (or more) CGI these days.


I consider the 60s, 70s 80s and early-mid 90s to be the true golden age of hollywood in my eyes. Top Gun i consider a classic.

That's just hunky dory. But if you search Google or take a film history class, you'll find that the era commonly known as the Golden Age of Hollywood is roughly from the silent era to sometime in the 1960s. The era of filmmakers and styles that began to appear in the late 1960s and had mostly taken over by the 1970s was known as the New Hollywood Cinema. And so on. It's not referred to as the "Golden Age" because that's when all of the "best" films were made (though certainly that opinion is not hard to find), that's just the common label assigned to the period.

I consider Top Gun a classic; I also consider it one of the most overrated pieces of '80s nonsense I've ever seen. One can appreciate a film or other artwork's influence on society without necessarily enjoying it themselves. But this is the Unforgiven thread, so Top Gun is largely irrelevant. I simply used it as an example in a post from a few months ago.

Yeah I wouldn't go that far. It's a great UHD but not, to me, rising to one of the most stunning. The one notable scene indoors is so dark my lady over and over kept telling me she couldn't see anything. Whereas the rest of the film it appeared to be designed to be dark and looked good going with that aesthetic.

Watched this a few days ago in 4K UHD for the first time (having seen the film many times over the years). A subtle but very effective treatment in the format I would say. Clarity improved across the board. This was noticeable in all shots of the town (and especially those from a distance).

Was also struck with the brightness of the snow in that great scene around the midway point, one that brings home Eastwood's craft as a director.

Prior to purchase I'd heard so many things about the transfer being 'too dark', but it surely isn't.

And the audio track is great: the rain in the final scenes really does sound like rain.

Just watched this on 4K BD. Some notes:

+Healthy and fine grain
+Much better detail than on BD
+/-WCG and HDR improves a bit, but not a huge amount
-Black floor too high

Overall very satisfied with the improvement over the BD.

Has anyone here noticed the incredibly jarring edit on the 4K disc just before the scene where William Munny, Ned, and TSK shoot that first Bar_T boy in the stomach? I've seen this film at least 10 times and never noticed this disorienting juxtaposition b/t that scene and the prior one leading into it. Maybe my 4k DVD is wonky?

Didn't notice anything when I watched it but if you could provide a time stamp I'll check my disc.
