I was able to make it to Batman Forever. About 5 people in there and pretty sure 2 of them were having sex Anyway, great picture and the score was relentless and thunderous.

Still my fav of the 4

The live sex is the best part of that movie.

IF ANYONE DOES NOT HAVE RECEIVER WITTH ATMOS (AND DTS:X), YOU ARE MISSING OUT, IT IS GREAT! IF PERSON DISAPPEARS OFF SCREEN TO THE LEFT AND IS RUNNING ON ROOFS, LIKE IN TOM CRUISE MOVIE, YOU DONT SEE THE PERSON BUT YOU HEAR THEIR FOOTSEPS IN THE UPPER LEFT SPEAKER ON THE CEILING! WAS WATCHING LAST JURASSIC WORLD MOVIE, DINOSAUR IS ON THE ROOF TO THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN, YOU CAN HEAR THE DINOSAUR IN THE UPPER RIGHT SPEAKER ON THE CEILING. TOO BAD ALL THE BLURAYS DONT HAVE ATMOS - AS ALL (well, majority-most of) THE 4K MOVIES HAVE ATMOS SOUND NOW. THE ONLY WAY TO WATCH A MOVIE NOW...IN ATMOS/DTS:X, AND IN 4K. BUT ALSO STILL LOVE (watching) 3D...at home.
OKAYSOUNDSCOOL BRO!!!

Sounds like it, especially when he grapples and takes off.

4 film collection. Just looks like the 4 films in a case, which actually has much better artwork than the individual discs. I'll wait until it drops to $20 or so.

You really think a 4 movie 4K UHD collection is going to drop all the way to $20? Highly unlikely.

The lowest the Matrix collection went down to was $39.

Really torn on waiting for this. I know if I buy them in June for anything above $20 each I'm basically a sucker. But damn I can't wait to see these in 4K HDR.

It'll come down to what's cheaper. Buying Batman and Batman Returns individually or waiting for the box set. I don't know if I could stomach buying Batman Forever or Batman and Robin again.

I saw one review on Youtube that said Batman Returns had blown-out contrast.

All reviews I have seen say Batman Returns is near reference quality video. What I'm wondering is Batman got a sound effects update, did they get improved on Batman Returns too?

That first cover doesn't even look like Tim Burton's Gotham City.

Anyone find these discs in stores? I think I'm just going to get Batman and Batman Returns for the remastered blurays as I haven't updated to 4k. Having Batman Forever and Batman and Robin on bluray is enough for me not to buy them again.

The clarity is great. What's not so great is the color timing, which has been changed (on the 89 Batman as well) to a strong teal/green push.
