WALL·E coming on Criterion!? In 4K?! With Dolby Atmos Soundtrack!

View attachment 83237
I never thought I would see the day where Criterion (finally! FINALLY!) moves towards embracing animation, and let alone with modern classics. LET ALONE A PIXAR FILM! This is a massive massive title here, the implications for the future is huge, especially with Disney and Criterion Partnerships!

Think of how many genuine classics are languishing in Disney's vaults!

Will absolutely snag to show support!
Obviously the disc will look (and sound) better, but if you want to get a sneak peak of the Atmos and Dolby Vision remaster, it is on Disney+ along with... all other Pixar movies, as they gave them all a pass a while ago. (Also the National Treasure movies? What! I gotta revisit those)

The Criterion page does mention it's a "4K Digital Master", so it's likely from the same source as the D+ version

They have a few classic animation releases but you are spot on about nothing in the way of new animation

But a Pixar/Disney film being released as a Criterion 4k ... yowza that was a shocker and hopefully a sign of things to come.

A little trivia, AFAIK, this LD was the 1st time the official Dolby Surround logo appeared on an LD jacket (I bought it at the record store [and LD store] at 75th and Metcalf in ~1986).

I'll be ordering this and the 1975 Rollerball UHD from Amazon soon.

The New SCREAM FACTORY Native UHD4K edition of John Carpenter's THE FOG adds Dolby Vision, a new DOLBY ATMOS soundtrack and a higher bit rate encode in contrast to the previous 2018 StudoiCanal UHD4K which IMO, makes this the DEFINITIVE EDITION!

Highdefdigest's MUST OWN Review of the Criterion UHD4K remaster of Brian De Palma's BLOW OUT [HDR10/Dolby Vision/DTS~HD 2.0 SURROUND]

Would love to get this one but $35 is a steep asking price. The price for most discs in my small but excellent 4K collection is about $15. Maybe there will be a future Barnes & Noble Criterion sale that will make it a more reasonable purchase.

B&N's half price semi annual sale will reduce the price, at best, to $25!

Star Trek - The Motion Picture (1979) 4K:

1. I got this latest bare bones release (1 4K disc, no extras): Star Trek: The Motion Picture

2. 4K image with Dolby Vision is superb all round.

3. New Atmos (in 5.1 at my place) fidelity is crystal clear, punchy couch-rumbling lows, surround mix is pretty constant with discrete moments, particularly in the score.

4. New special effects all look great except that early scene where Kirk's shuttle lands in San Francisco still looks like someone drew it with coloured pencils. Oh well.

5. Probably my favourite Trek flick. Well worth the purchase. I also got the Voyage Home but haven't spun that one yet.

ARRIVING October 11th from Criterion, the native UHD4K release of LOST HIGHWAY personally supervised by Director David Lynch [HDR10/Dolby Vision/DTS~HD MA 5.1] In blu~ray.com's excellent review they do compare this new release to Kino Lorber's excellent 2019 BD~V release so if you own that release {I do and it is excellent] be sure to read on!
