The Mule 4K Story: The Basics


The Mule 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

Broke, alone and facing foreclosure on his business, 90-year-old horticulturist Earl Stone takes a job as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. His immediate success leads to easy money and a larger shipment that soon draws the attention of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. When Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on his conscience, he must decide whether to right those wrongs before law enforcement and cartel thugs catch up to him.

Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is a man in his 80s who is broke, alone and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for the cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.

The Mule 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

The Mule 4K Ultra HD is bland and has the colors washed out. I appreciate that this is the intent of the movie however; so thats fine, but there are no overblown colors and and ultra lush landscapes in The Mule 4k. To my eyes this looks like a 2KDI so seeing more information past the Blu-ray isn't really possible. It looks very soft, about as soft as a Blu-ray, a pinch above maybe but nothing to scream about. There is definite compression in the backgrounds of shots, and overall the disc doesn't look very good in my opinion. This is an average looking disc.

VIDEO SCORE = 3 out of 5

The Mule 4K Audio: The Basics


The Mule 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

The Mule is not a movie to test your sound system in anyway. The center channel seems a little low for me, by around 1 to 2db. There isn't much use of surround sound, but to be fair; the movie doesn't provide scenarios to use it, so... The Mule provides a below average audio experience.

AUDIO SCORE = 2.5 out of 5

How I Review: The Basics


I just write what I see, nothing super in depth, just what I see. Do I see noise in the blacks? Edge enhancement? Digital Issues? Scaling Problem? I will let you know if I see any errors in the discs, and how good they really look. Same with the audio, super basic, if its good I'll let you know. My reviews will not get a reference certificate unless its flawless, I will not be giving out 10/10 video and audio without merit. I'm going to keep this really simple, and I hope you enjoy that side of my Reviews. Thank you.

Aquaman 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

Aquaman 4K Ultra HD is extremely bright and dynamic that's for sure. It also has great color, but for me thats where the good ends. The disc looks soft to me, kinda like 2KDI soft, they also use a soft glow sometimes which doesn't look good on digital transfers, well... at least when bit-rates are not the highest. I didn't think the bit-rate was high enough personally, the backgrounds of some scenes looked overly digital with digital noise and some movement and artifacting. With a disc this bright and colorful I think it's a shame to see some gital effects like this really ruin the image. It's not bad, but I really wanted more from a disc of this magnitude.

VIDEO SCORE = 3.9 out of 5

Aquaman 4K Audio: The Basics


Aquaman 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

The sound is on Aquaman is stunning in every way, this is an amazing Dolby Atmos disc. Let's talk about bass, this movie has so much bass it's actually quite scary LOL, this disc will give your system a run for it's money let me tell you. With incredible bass also comes incredible dialogue, very clear and precise, I love a clear center channel for dialogue, and at the perfect volume. The surround sound effects with Dolby Atmos and the 7.1 is truly excellent. This is how a summer blockbuster movie should always sound. Great use of both surround sound and Atmos effects. This is the real deal and a great listen. This disc is a must own for Incredible Reference Audio.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

WOW Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse looks incredible. If you've read my past reviews you will know that I am very picky about the way images and discs look. Some may say I'm overly critical, however, I've been looking at digital images now for many years, and I see imperfections quite easy now. I struggled to find anything wrong with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I tried and I can't, LOL, that's how good this disc is. Great color that isn't HDR overblown and obvious like many 4k discs. Great detail and resolution with no added sharpness like most movie companies do; to make their discs look sharper. I'd like to mention low level and low lit scenes, they look excellent. I tried and tried to find any artifact in low level scenes and couldn't. I tried to find banding and couldn't, I tried everything. This disc is 5 out of 5 in every way, and earns the HD MOVIE SOURCE REFERENCE CERTIFIED.
All discs need to look this good on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, this is amazing and Sony should take pride in the fact that this is the best looking disc on the format.

VIDEO SCORE = 5 out of 5

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review

The sound for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse features Dolby Atmos and is equally as good as the video. The direction of sound throughout each speaker is sensational. The bass is punchy and deep and will give your subwoofer a workout. Center channel dialogue is levelled perfectly and overall the sound volume was at perfect reference level with no volume increase needed. Excellent, this is how good movie soundtracks can sound and was a joy to watch and listen.
