Oooh yes this looks like a fun romp!Note on the jankyness of the cgi animes, I have noticed the stutteryness is far less noticeable in UHD.I discovered that with Ultraman which was basically unwatchable in 1080p (on the computer).
The IMAX version of Pacific Rim Uprising will be digitally remastered, so you can feel the colossal clash of Kaiju and kickass robots as if you were right there in the middle of it all.
It's hard to overstate just how much I enjoyed Director Guillermo del Toro's (The Shape of Water) Pacific Rim. His giant monsters-versus-giant robots confection seemed borne from the same 13-year-old id I still navigate life with - somehow capturing and translating to the screen every ridiculous notion that ever started with "You know what would be cool...?" (Elbow rockets, I'm looking at you.) It is this love of the original Pacific Rim that left me so profoundly disappointed in Uprising. Although its first half hour is serviceable enough, introducing us to our new soon-to-be-heroes, the film goes completely off the rails the moment "Alice" arrives. I won't elaborate in fear of ruining things for you - though the filmmakers did a fine job of ruining things all by themselves. On a slightly more positive note, Universal brings Uprising to disc sporting a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, available on both the standard Blu-ray and the 4K Ultra HD edition. Although not as impressive-sounding as the first film, Uprising features a capable mix with crisp dialogue, sufficiently deep bass, and routine use of the surround channels. Oddly, I didn't notice the overhead channels adding too much to the equation here. The only scenes where I felt a true sense of immersion were those in Gypsy's cockpit, where the overhead channels were cleverly used to layer in the Jaeger's control sounds and the pilot voices sounded appropriately confined in this smaller, more intimate setting. It's fitting that even Uprising's music is a missed opportunity. My kids and I kept waiting for that kickass and distinctive theme music to rear its head - but when it does, it's a butchered remix that pales in comparison to the original. If only the same couldn't be said for the film itself. 2b1af7f3a8
