I'm on the fence with this one. The films gradually got worse as they went on.

I've now pre-ordered the UK set. Here's hoping that transfers will be OK.

I hope these will all look good. I've got the complete collection on DVD and I don't understand why only the first one was digitally remastered but not the others. Also, I hope they include the making-ofs that the DVDs had with the cast looking back at them. It shows they all had a great time making them.

Default Police Academy 3 Blu-ray has a very filtered picture quality

caps-a-holic have uploaded comparison screenshots of the Police Academy 3 Blu-ray which unfortunately has a very filtered encode, significantly smudging any detail. This is unfortunate considering the good encodes on 1 & 2.

I believe Police Academy 4 onwards are not filtered making me wonder if there was an error in the encoding process of number 3.

Got it for 26, which I felt was reasonable for 7 films. Only owned the first film on DVD before. Must check the third film now to see just how much DNR there is.

Checked nr 3. It's a complete mess. Excessively DNR'd almost to the Predator-level. Not much definition to speak of. Like watching the standard DVD but with improved resolution. In any case, there's barely any grain to see at all.

Also had a quick look at 4. There is some type pf grain, but I am uncertain if it's digital noise or grain. Things look very digital, and while definition is up a notch from 3, it's not much more than what can be expected from a DVD.

Every now and then, both films had some really soft shots, which may be attributed to film stock as well as bad focus. Not necessarily the transfer.

A disappointment if you are a fan of these films. Personally, I can live with it since they are not on my A-list.

Had a peek at no 5. In my opinion less of a mess than 3 and 4. In fact, there is grain. Looks quite OK, but not spectacular. I guess film stock and budget may be factors preventing it from looking spectacular. Perfectly watchable.

Now, on to six and seven.

I have uploaded screenshots of Police Academy 4, 5 & 6 onto caps-a-holic. Fortunately they don't suffer from the excessive DNR of 3 and look quite good. I guess it's too much to hope for Warner Bros. to replace 3 without the DNR.

Why did this get moved out of the UK forum area?

Warner doesn't region lock their discs, so yes it's 100% region free.
