Default "Baraka" BD Review: THE new reference Blu-ray!

remember when "Planet Earth" was THE reference bd.
and then came "I, Robot" and others.
we guess what?
there's a new king of the hill, and it may NEVER be surpassed.
70mm 8k restoration can do that.

I blind bought this, should get it next week.

Can't wait.


This is the only other disc besides AC/DC: No Bull to feature a 96/24 audio remaster. Wait, the AC/DC has a 96/24 True HD, Baraka is DTS--damn, it's going to be nuts!

wow, this should be spectacular! I would blind buy if I did not have reservations of what the actual content is. Rent then possibly sprint out to get it is what I will do.

Am I the only one who immediately thinks of Mortal Kombat when I hear "Baraka"?

Never even heard of the movie until the recent hype machine...HAHAHAAH, whenever I come across a "Baraka from Mortal Kombat" reference. Ebert said this movie is THE reason to own a Blu Ray player and everybody else is proclaiming how amazing the picture quality is. Never had any interest in the movie, but will now purchase with everyone going crazy about the video presentation...same thing happened to me with Planet Earth, Speed Racer, and many other Blu Rays and I have never regretted any purchases. Blu Rays, especially the 5/5 Pic Quality ones make us all do crazy things.

I watched it a couple years ago in HD on Comcast, the movie was amazing, visually one of the greatest flicks I've seen. I was actually going to pass on it on blu-ray, but with the quality of the audio/video being so great, I'll have to pick it up now.

I might have to Redbox this flick and buy the BRD if the mood strikes me.
