In this second part of TMNT Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael are back to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After super-villain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.

The 4K Experience

This 4K version of this 4K family movies has incredible detail. Rich with vibrant colors, realistic characters that are so life like. Scaly skin, realistic textures heck even the enamel on the turtles teeth can be seen quite clearly. Master Splinter is also looking awesome whereas you can see the individual hairs and whiskers as if it were real. The day time scenes and environment are also displayed impressively. Same can be said for the darker less bright scenes such as the sewers. The color palette and contrast on display are exceptional, adding a real depth to the image. The movie as a whole is not that grand. But if you a fan then you have to get the 4K release of this movie.

The Lego Movie

This is a highly entertaining 4K family movies for both adults and kids alike. This movie is actually quite meaningful and has a deeper more profound message on the value of individuality and team work.

The 4K Experience

The production of the 4K family movies has high quality. Extremely impressive visual detail and high resolution. The LEGO Movie’s Ultra HD presentation is that the film has received a much brighter and more vivid color palette. My personal assumption had been that a movie lego movie would be as clunky and low resolution due to the LEGO world. However I couldn’t have been more wrong. Be sure to keep your eye on whats happening in the background also as there are scenes where the background is just as interesting as the focus points.

The Life Of Pi

The film opens similarly to the novel. The idea is the same, but the execution is slightly different. Different mediums require different storytelling tools. For instance, I believe most film-goers will readily recognize The Writer (portrayed by actor Rafe Spall, who replaced a distractedly famous Toby Maguire) as a stand-in for author Martel. In the novel, it is Martel himself, in direct address to readers, who fulfills this role, effectively blurring the line between fact and fiction. It is established that this story is being related to The Writer by an older Pi.

The 4K Experience

4K in the life of Pi is spectacular. The tiger, Richard Parker, is at the top of the list, but in fact the entire movie benefits tremendously from 4K. If you liked Avatar, you probably liked the marvelous animals. Also I’m sure in some scenes, Richard Parker is CGI’d to some extent. But
Life of Pi has a real earthly animal to work with, and you can argue there is no animal on earth more beautiful or fierce than a tiger.

That’s part of the genius of this movie, and I’m sure one reason James Cameron liked it so much. Further to that the great sea scenes and the island images are wonderful on 4k. Hues and contrasts. Vivid colors and great scenes (such as the whale jumping) adds to it making it one of the best 4K experiences. Not forgetting the intense reflections and refraction’s on the water surface is just insane and so realistic.

Labyrinth 4K Ultra HD

“Labyrinth” was not a commercial success when it was first released, and in fact caused Jim Henson to fall into a depression because he had hoped for better. But it’s not hard to see why it became a cult success – it’s a hybrid of “The Dark Crystal” and “Alice in Wonderland,” melding a fantasy quest with a coming-of-age journey. And of course, it has David Bowie as a rock’n’roll goblin. Who couldn’t love that?

The 4K experience

Now the Ultra HD experience really comes to its own as the movie moves into its many studio sets which are lit professionally and controlled. Here is where labyrinth’s 4K scan which is sourced from the original 35mm negative becomes amazing. The many featured puppets have so much detail. Realistic fur where individual strands of hair and fur can be seen in life like visibility. The make up and matte paintings are also brilliantly shown in the 4K version of labyrinth. This new 4K scan really provides an awesome visual and movie watching experience. The movie has never looked as great as is does in this 4K reproduction.

Audio: English Dolby Atmos, English Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (48kHz, 24-bit), Czech Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, German Dolby Digital 5.1, Hungarian Dolby Digital 5.1, Japanese Dolby Digital 5.1, Polish Dolby Digital 5.1, Portuguese Dolby Digital 5.1, Russian Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1, Italian Dolby Digital 2.0

From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks’ Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.

The 4K Experience

Trolls UHD 4K is said to be up-scaled from the 2K intermediate. The 4K presentation of Trolls is definitely better then its Blu-ray counterpart. The viewing in 4K is simply awesome and visually stimulating. Things such as the clothes, skin and environment are much sharper and textural dense. The colors are so much more vivid with increased brightness. All in all the viewing experience is more dynamic together with the Ultra HD’s HDR color scheme makes a big difference and increases the detailing significantly.

Technical specs: Codec: HEVC / H.265, Resolution: 4K (2160p).
Audio: English: Dolby Atmos, English: Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (48kHz, 24-bit), Spanish: Dolby Digital 5.1, French (Canada): Dolby.
