How is this link supposed to prove anything when I see a huge green tint in the picture from the scene in which the Joker shoots into the crowd and Bruce Wayne is just watching? This scene doesn’t look that way in any home video version, not even in the 4K.
It’s my belief these pictures don’t prove anything and they are either wrong or the source needs to be color corrected. In other words assuming the movie looks like this in 35mm is wrong and even assuming the 4K is supposed to look like this is wrong, too.
P.S. Found this good review in that OH video:
You’re pretty spot on in your assessment Oliver. The 4ks for all four are a disappointment and mere catalog updates for WB. The 4k UHD for 89 has less teal and is at least a better presentation than the 1080p remastered disc as that suffers from some of the same issues as the Matrix remastered Blu-ray.
You’re right that there is no official indication of any original crew members being consulted for any of the four transfers. They likely would have balked.
Even with the teal being more minimal in the 4k of 89 on the UHD it is still off. I agree the overall look is not what an original print looks like. However Returns is absolutely ruined with teal throughout and NONE of that is in an original print.
The audio is a disaster and ruins the effect of the mix of time periods in the film. The old SEDVD DTS you mentioned is good but like many dts dvd tracks is merely a few decibels louder than the Dolby track. The best sounding audio for 89 is still the old original mix releases on the Laserdisc and original flipper dvd. They have much more low end and still sound so good that it makes the Atmos totally unnecessary.
For years I’ve waited for properly dark transfers of the Burton films and new transfers for the sequels and this dumping out is apparently all we’re going to get. It’s extremely disheartening.
The audio for all three sequels are also remixes but less obviously so. It will still drive us fans nuts.
I had hoped that 4k revisits night finally mean the director’s cut of Forever would be released but I doubt that will ever happen unfortunately.
There’s also a guy claiming it’s the setup
Yeah I have a Sony X930E and the teal is only slightly more than the original. Nowhere near as bad as what he makes out. Everything else including sound is fantastic! Hardly any grain at all plus skin tones seem more accurate compared to bluray. Colours are much tighter and don’t bleed into each other like other versions. Maybe Oliver is just used to it a certain way and his TV oversaturates colours. LG and Samsung are notorious for that. Panasonic and Sony flagship TV’s are industry leaders for the most accurate picture.
Yep it’s definitely the TV, that is making the teal effect more prominent. Watched it on my other 4K monitor / TV and it’s Teal City! Shows you that you really do need great quality TV for real 4K clarity and colours. Batman Returns looks even better I think and yes same effect for the teal. On my Sony it’s not really noticeable. On the monitor it’s definitely kicked up a notch.
