I’m really done hunting for the store exclusives. I just got the regular 4k, I bought it now to make sure I got a slipcover.

Do people still care about slipcovers?

Oh yea. People on Blu-ray.com care about that more than the movie.

Apparently. I've just discovered they're super easy to throw up on eBay for a few bucks (someone paid $10 for my Infinity War 4K slipcover).

I basically got all the Scream Factory steelbooks for free and even pocketed a couple bucks, just by selling the same discs with the original OOP slipcovers.

Re: DEADPOOL 2: 4K Ultra HD / Blu-ray

I usually like director's cuts and such with extra footage, but one glaring difference I noticed here between both cuts that almost makes me prefer the theatrical cut:

Spoiler:
They replaced the unplugged version of "Take On Me" with another song during Wade and Vanessa's reunion scene toward the end. I thought the inclusion of that track when I saw it in the theater was brilliant.

All of my X-Men films have them so far, so it's about keeping the look for this particular series.

And I do think it makes the shelf look better with the squared sides showing the title instead of the curved side.

Thatís terrible. Thatís aha right? That song with the cool animated video? Terrible terrible exclusion. Iím actually pissed now. Canít wait to see what they replaced it with. Take on Me was perfect!

Re: DEADPOOL 2: 4K Ultra HD / Blu-ray

Yeah, that audio replacement seems weird because the scene actually mirrors elements of the video for "Take on Me"

Yeah that change was stupid. I actually went back and watched just that scene in the regular version after watching the Super-Duper cut.

I did like "Fly Like An Eagle" a lot more than the original cue.

Re: DEADPOOL 2: 4K Ultra HD / Blu-ray

Robert Harris LOVED it.....I think.

https://www.hometheaterforum.com/com...1#post-4644075

"Three of the finest films to ever grace the silver sheet have had a running time of 222 minutes.

Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, and now...

The Super Duper Cut of Deadpool 2, one of those extremely rare Marvel productions.

While it plays a bit long - the short cut runs only 119 - it gives the viewer the character arcs and multiple nuances necessary to really understand the storyline, and character mindsets.

While some viewers have found the film self-indulgent, and filled with a bit too much winknudge-nudge, breaking the fourth wall humour, those with higher educations will readily catch the various references that play out through the film, to lesser known Shakespearian dramas, along with the best of Ibsen, Chekov and, and more for the handful of four letter utterances, the best of Mamet.

References to lesser films in cinema history also abound.

Best to take notes.

While much of the film moves slowly, especially for a Marvel production, what it adds to the world of classic cinema is undeniable.

With a myriad of effects, it must be noted, in this day of overwrought digital work, that much like the 1992, Bram Stoker's Dracula, every one of the delicately honed effects is fully produced in the analogue world.

You'll find nothing so crass here, as the teeming tens of thousands of creatures attacking our heroes in the latest Avengers outing.

In Deadpool 2, it's all rear-screen projection, practical effects, and rotoscoping.

As a disc, Fox's new 4k is quite beautiful, with layers of original teal subtlety captured from the original three-strip (acetate) cinematography.

Deadpool 2 is a wonder to behold - it's original screenplay (no sequel here) from the quills of Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds, probably best known for his acting in Van Wilder: Party Liaison, back in 2002.

It all proves what a difference a copy of Screenwriter, or Final Draft can do.

Audio is huge, with the original recordings being transferred directly from the 32" wax cylinders to digital domain, and the final mix in Dolby Atmos.

This is one big fillum.

Finished in 2k, the 4k release, looks as good as the 2k original.

Just keep repeating...

4k

4k

4k

Image - 5 (Teal-O-Vision)

Audio - 5 (Dolby Atmos)

Pass / Fail - Pass

RAH"

It only played for 12 days.

I didn't bother seeing this in the theater. I may pay for a digital rental just to see it, but it's unlikely I would purchase this.

I didn't get a chance to see this in theaters, so a rental will probably be for me too.

Re: DEADPOOL 2: 4K Ultra HD / Blu-ray

So it's a barebones release of an alternate cut? You would think they'd at least put some new special features on it to make it more enticing.
Well, I'm a Marvel whore, so I'm sure I'll pick it up at some point, not until it's like $5 or less though.
