There's so much to like in episode 1. Even moreso that the franchise received a reboot after 16 years, and continued the Darth Vader origin story.

Ep 1 is a movie the more times I see it, the more I like it. I think it gets a bad rap most of time.

Are these the first 1080p to 4k upscales?

Oh, that's fantastic news. I can buy these individually and won't have to wait years to get them.

Please no DNR, and be good. Love TPM.

Dang Disney, there's other months than March, you know. 5 Pixar, 2 B&TB, and now 7 Star Wars (and probably the 9th). You got any other franchises to hurl at us at once? lol

I'm a Phantom Menace apologist. For all it's misses it's hits get real close to the ones from the OT. The space stuff is amazing. The podrace minus a few shots is god-tier. The score is as good as the best of other SW flicks.

I was 18 when I saw it. So it wasn't because it was formative that I like it. Just can can look past its warts is what I came to peace with -- Couldn't do similar for AOTC. That shit is irredeemable! Not even the action set pieces in that hold up. Natalie Portman midriff is about it...

If it weren't for Qui-Gon and Darth Maul I might consider a pass.

I can't imagine this won't be the same DNR'd master currently streaming on Disney+. Prepare to be disappointed.

the sound design from Ben Burtt and Gary Rydstrom for this scene alone, are the two at their top of the game moment.

I came here looking for all the car-wreck comments about the digital capture, but now I’m impressed by the restraint going on.

The pod-race and Duel of the Fates segments are highlights. Jar-Jar and Midichlorians not so much.

EDIT: Oops, confused with Ep II

What digital capture? This was shot on 35mm.

I enjoyed this movie the other day when I watched it with my oldest daughter on Blu-Ray. It's fun. The kid who plays Anakin can't act worth a crap, but other than that, I really enjoyed it. Jar-Jar isn't even that bad or as annoying as I remember.

They were uprezzed slightly to industry standard 2K at the time, just like other movies shot to 1080p like Tron Legacy, Captain America (as mentioned), Zombieland, Predators etc. And the latter three look fantastic on UHD.

You're probably right, but I just don't really understand why the film is DNR'd so much. Everyone says it's to match the digital look of II and III, but the majority of this movie is made up of digital effects, basically just the actors were shot on film. The only grain would be from those shots and should be fine enough not to be obtrusive.
