    Thanks E, I remember the buzz when this one was announced, the Auro 3D and the triple-layered disc were big things. Although the announcement of triple-layer came long before we actually saw any such discs it now is more of an expectation. Making a 13.1 soundtrack from a mono original - I might not be convinced either to warrant a $150 add-on to a firmware to utilize it unless, like you say, other movies use it as well. It would be interesting to revisit this one later though when there are more choices.

    Thanks for the review! However, the disc is in fact not HDR. It's an 4K SDR presentation, you might want to update it.

    Turbine Media has confirmed it to be SDR only on their Facebook page.

    I wouldn't know the difference between SDR and HDR anyway. I think I'll order one from amazon.de.

    Order Total: EUR 23,39

    Thank you for the info. The review has been updated to reflect this. I wish there were a way to verify the content of UHDs.

    E, did/does your display engage its HDR10 calibration settings when this disc played?

    I had to switch to HDR on my display when watching this particular disc. Why?

    Oh, well, you said you wish you could verify when a disc has HDR and, typically, displays auto-engage seperate calibration modes for HDR so I was curious about whether or not this had happened on this case.

    You're totally right! Why didn't I think of that? If it doesn't automatically engage, then it's likely not HDR. Thanks for that.

    Got it. Check it out:

    I'm glad the standard Blu-ray is region-free. It does have the B logo on the back of the case though. Scary (the logo, not the film).

    update: The 2nd Blu-ray disk (Extras) is Region B locked. I'll have to play it on the LG BH200 instead of the Oppo 103.
