I'm getting mine early - tomorrow, in fact. Wicked.

5/5 in all categories but extras (4/5) for the UHD from Blu-ray.com - same score for the regular Blu's transfer too

I gave the BD a quick spin, and the 2 lossless soundtracks seemed quite different to me. The overture is much brighter on the Remixed track than on the 1968 one, as if the 1968 is, let's say, more muffled. The opening credits are closer to each other though in tone, but the remixed track packs just so much punch altogether, especially regarding low end and any percussive music. I don't think I heard any of the high-end distorsion Bill Hunt mentioned in his review, but that's not where I'm the most experienced, hearing (and tech) wise.

I didn't have any issue with the color timing though I'm not the most familiar (at all) with the movie. But there wasn't anything that felt strange, or biased, or anything.

In any case, this seems just great, and I'm quite eager to revisit the movie entirely.

I don't have a 4K TV yet, but this is looking like a definite buy when I do get one. I'm going to hold off in the meantime - I've been catching 70mm screenings of this nearly once a year anyway, so I can wait.

Posted this message in the Criterion Channel subject but I think it's better here...

Anyone noticed that there's a shot from 2001 A Space Odyssey in God Told Me To / Larry Cohen ?
Check the sequence at approximately 1:24:47 in Gold Tod Me To, there's a few seconds of a big eye close-up from the trippy scene in 2001.
Don't know if the sample was official...

Actually, it's at the end of the trailer : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Abw51rMeXdg

I've caught some of these podcasts while avoiding our many potholes in the Twin Cities. Quite a lot of fun:

Can't seem to get it to hyperlink, but y'all can figure that out.
