Default Christine 4K - HDD Review

At the heart of Christine, the 1983 cult horror favorite based on the Stephen King novel and directed by horror filmmaker legend John Carpenter, is the forbidden love story of a boy and his car. Although the narrative feels episodic, Carpenter does an excellent job of maintaining Arnie's dark progression and Christine's evil murdering rage into a devilishly fun ride. Celebrating its 35th Anniversary, the vintage car roars onto the superhighway of Ultra HD with an excellent 4K HDR10 presentation and a satisfying Dolby Atmos soundtrack, offering a welcomed restored and refurbished upgrade over the Blu-ray. The same set of supplements are joined by a couple of theatrical previews, making this a Recommended HDR package of a cult horror favorite.

Did Sony just get an injection from Fox or LionsGate? WTH is with the HD copy redeemed bullshit? They were one of the studios that were doing it semi-right from the beginning, now this!

Sony is using eco-cutout cases now? I thought only Warners and Fox were still using those, and I've never seen Sony use them.

Another reason to go with the steelbook.

Oops! Thank you, cupboy, for pointing that out. I meant to write eco-vortex. Fixing it right now!

Underrated? How?

I thought it was a pretty popular film across the board -viewers and critics

I always felt that this film always got lost in the mix when talking about great Carpenter films. It doesn't get near as much attention as Halloween, The Thing, or Escape From New York does. Christine, Starman, and In The Mouth of Madness have got to be his most underrated films IMO.

Well Starman is not even horror, so I haven't even bothered to watch it myself.

Here’s a Christine post. I got the BBY steelbook today, the digital code redeemed to 4K with MoviesAnywhere.

Thanks for the update! I just checked on Movies Anywhere and VUDU, and I still only have access to the HDX version. Weird.
