I picked this up at Target for 14.99. The picture is more bright than the previous blu, but detail doesn't seem to be significantly upgraded. This one has bonus features that the previous version didn't have. I am not equipped with Atmos but I do have a 7.1 setup and it is a very nice upgrade in sound compared to the PCM track on the older disc. I didn't do any comparisons with the 5.1 TrueHd track though.

Ah The Fifth Element, or as I like to call it, Final Fantasy The Movie.

This would be the remaster but not the digibook right?


Hey Palmer, I thought you were going to use Thejnc's side by sides?

Wanted to keep that element separate because I didn't personally have the chance to watch both transfers. Not to say his thoughts or conclusions are in anyway inaccurate, but I'm not really in the business of reviewing screen grabs. But I did link to them in the review if anyone wants to see what he put together. Cheers.

Krawk,

Correct. The one I picked up is just the standard bluray case version.

Yeah that assessment is fair enough. A link in the review would be handy for those that do not peruse that particular thread.

Thanks Palmer. The link did not show its usual off color to indicate a link so it was missed.

I just ordered this from amazon, but my copy isn't showing Atmos, just regular DD (not even TrueHD). I'm playing off a PS4 through an Onkyo TX-NR636. I've demoed Mockingjay and the receiver says Atmos with that one, but here it just showed regular DD 5.1. Anyone else having this issue? Is it possible I got a bad disc?
