The Thing (Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray Review

The picture Quality for The Thing Limited Edition Steelbook is stunning. Now sourced from a 4k master, and wow... A movie this old can look this good? This is still Blu-ray right? It really does look excellent and this transfer is so so good. Fan or not this is a must own if you love how good film can look and how good old masters can look when done right.

HD MOVIE SOURCE RECOMMENDED!

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.
