I was hoping the remastered version of Rocky would get a standalone release. Amazon.ca also has May 6th individual pre-orders for the other Rocky movies (probably just getting released with new package artwork).

I bought the Undisputed bluray set for Rocky for $12. Unless this is a significant upgrade, i'm good.

The new ROCKY upgrade is supposed to be pretty good...however, the box cover being used is NOT so good.

It was originally going to be this (pretty good):


...and got changed to this (horrible!):


Hopefully someone gets the message that fans hate that cover and it gets switched back before they go to print.

The new remaster got a full five stars for PQ.

I am considering pre-ordering this, but I suspect that another box set will be released eventually with all the movies remastered not long after the Rocky spin off movie "Creed" is released either in theaters, or on released on BD.

These two images may have been different when you first linked to them, but they look the same now.

I'm not too concerned about the cover art. I'll still be buying it. I've got The Undisputed Collection as well and am just going to put the new remastered version of Rocky in the place of the original release.

I got the 4k-remastered version of The Terminator for $5 from walmart.ca on boxing day. Hopefully I can find a similar deal with the remastered Rocky.

We reviewed the remaster as part of the most recent box set:
http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/1059...avyweight.html

E said "Struck from the original elements and remastered at 4K resolution, the picture is absolutely gorgeous, revealing every detail and fine line in buildings and clothing with resolute, distinct clarity."

I ordered the remastered standalone as soon as I saw it was on the way.

I am sure it had been mentioned in another thread, some had believed that Rocky couldn't look much better than the previous release. It's a low budget movie that was made for less than $1,000,000 and it's pushing 40 years old, but here we have a version of it that has earned a 5 star rating for PQ.

That gives me hope that something can still be done with Predator and the Die Hard movies.
