Ok good..that does bode well considering the original is one of my favourites. That being said, I remember they did apparently mess up the Bourne movies, so I'll err on the side of caution especially since some work would have to be done to colour correct the original. I'll keep my mind open and wait for caps.

Having caught the Spielberg’s and Trevorrow on tv on a lazy Saturday, I’ve found Jurassic World to be a lot more rewatchable than The Lost World.
That said, you loved the film upon first watch, right?

I could certainly see how you found it rewatchable, if that's the case. On the other hand, I'd consider throwing my television into a ravine if I couldn't change the channel.

There will be directly individual releases in Europe, so maybe they're just not announced yet in the US.

I suspect the concerns are about Universal's usual hands-on approach. They've been doing 4K scans for some years but in many cases, they couldn't resist digitally tampering with the results. There are some infamous examples like the latest restoration for An American Werewolf in London, and IIRC, Jurassic Park and The Lost World existing BDs were from new 4K scans which were digitally tampered with. Jaws was also slightly degrained though I always found the filtering to be extremely light on this one.

So past the scanning resolution itself, people are probably eager to see if the studio has learnt from its mistakes and will choose a more hands-off approach. This being written, if E.T. and Apollo 13 are anything to go by, there shouldn't be cause for worries.

Only the first one, which seems to have used an older master for the UHD, with a poorly handled contrast correction.
However, it looks like Universal UHD reputation is otherwise quite good so far regarding the few catalog movies they released so far (E.T., Apollo 13, The Mummy trilogy, 3 of the 4 Bourne movies, The Grinch, ...).

Men in Black is Sony. I think some people are fearing that the Jurassic Park UHD turns into a T2 case, i.e. grains scrubbed for the 3D conversion process.

Indeed, they're Sony. I reported them without realising that when looking at the blu-ray.com database, which has some of their releases under Universal.

Guilty. But I’m not nearly as high on it as I used to be but I still find it fairly enjoyable.
