Worse are the full-length segments of the faux tabloid news show “Gotham Tonight,” featuring Anthony Michael Hall. While they’re interesting in context to the film’s narrative (and Hall’s not bad), they don’t offer much for cinephiles or Batfanatics in regards to how the film was accomplished and the impact it is already starting to have in cinema and fan circles. Nolan created a phenomenon in the summer of 2008 and that is something that bears more focus than the features offered here. Still Galleries also feature the amazing concept art and fantastic PR materials that preceded the film’s release as well as Theatrical and TV trailer spots in from the film in full HD (1 teaser, 2 trailers, and a few TV spots) that are impressive in look and execution. Conclusion Other than that, I found these Ultra HD renderings to be excellent, delivering a nuanced, and at times captivating, visual experience that thoroughly accentuated both the source elements, and thematic impact of watching The Dark Knight Trilogy. It goes without saying that these Ultra HD releases are a must have for your Blu-ray collection. Primary audio on the 4K disc is included in another new English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio mix that’s of excellent quality and appears to be a slight improvement upon the previous Blu-ray’s already reference-grade Dolby TrueHD presentation. As with Batman Begins, it offers a big, full soundstage, with excellent dialogue clarity, robust bass, smooth and natural panning, and strong atmospherics. The LFE, if anything, is just a bit more muscular here than before, while the mix’s dynamic range appears to have expanded a bit, both characteristics that further enhance the creeping tension of Hans Zimmer’s nervous and edgy score. Additional audio options include French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Thai 5.1 Dolby Digital, with optional subtitles in English for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, French, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, and Thai. To say that The Dark Knight it exceeded my expectations would be a bit of an understatement. It allowed the audience the chance to further examine the complex persona behind the man on both sides of the mask. Batman struggles not only against the mob but also has to deal with corruption within local law enforcement and city prosecutors. On top of that he must now contend with The Joker who is unlike anything he has dealt with previously. This isn’t an overly complicated individual but his methodology is anything but simple. He is an anarchist who has no value system. His belief is that everyone is corruptible and that the one individual who consistently challenges that theory must constantly be put to the test. This film is an eclectic thriller, and a fast-paced action opus, that is exactly what genre fans clamor for. It is my opinion that without the outstanding performance by the late Heath Ledger as The Joker the film would not have had the same impact. He took this character to a level not achieved by any other actor playing this type of villain in an action film. I am sure that I am not alone when I say that I appreciated his efforts. The Dark Knight on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray is presented in 2160p resolution (4x the resolution of 1080p Blu-ray) with variable aspect ratios between 2.4:1 and 1.78:1 (IMAX sequences). The video also features enhanced color and contrast via the HDR10 specification (viewable on supporting 4k HDR TVs). And, audio is provided in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (English) along with subtitles in English SDH, French, and Spanish. The New 4k Print

Additional Note: The disc I reviewed was a BD-100. It has been reported that later pressings used a BD-66. Since I do not have that disc, I presentation. Since that time, however, dissenting voices have questioned the quality of that Blu-ray, which, like all of Nolan's films to date, was Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of The Dark Knight – Delve into the psyche of Bruce Wayne and the World of Batman through real-world psychotherapy I eagerly awaited Christopher Nolan’s final installment and hoped that it would befit and compliment the first two in the series. The Dark Knight would be difficult to live up to for a variety of reasons, but as a fan I had hopes. I went to see The Dark Knight Rises with my son who is a very big fan. My reaction to it wasn’t as enthusiastic as it was with its predecessor. I found the script to be slightly uneven and overlong as it dealt with Bruce’s excursion to the pit while he sorted out the true meaning of life, death and that conquering fear alone wasn’t enough if he was going to rise from the remains left of him by the indomitable Bane. I also found the final showdown between Bane and Batman to be anticlimactic, and disappointing, which wasn’t helped by the rather conventional plot twist that I saw coming.Extras: Anamorphic (16:9), Language(s): 4K: English, French, German; Blu-ray: English, French, German, 4K: Castilian Spanish, Czech, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Russian; Blu-ray: Brazilian Portuguese, Castilian Spanish, Hard of Hearing Subtitles: 4K: English, German, Italian, Subtitles: 4K: Arabic, Cantonese, Castilian Spanish, Complex Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish; Blu-ray: Brazilian Portuguese, Castilian Spanish, Complex Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian,Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Interactive Menu, Screen ratio 1:2.40, Screen ratio 2:1.78, 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital 2.0, Bonus Footage, Documentaries: 'Gotham Uncovered: Creation of a Scene', 'Batman Tech', 'Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of 'The Dark Knight'', Image Gallery, Six episodes of 'Gotham Tonight', TV spots, Trailers For those not familiar with the details regarding Ultra HD Blu-ray you can refer to my article that includes some pertinent data on the subject.

However, I did enjoy the cohesiveness of the narrative as it pertained to Bruce’s reemergence, facing a foe unlike any other, and the superbly integrated subplots revolving around Blake and Selina. It went without saying that the production elements, cast selection, direction and action/choreography were all top notch in keeping with the bar set by the earlier films. Going into viewing The Dark Knight Rises having previously seen it proved to be a more enriching experience, allowing me to take it all in.

The Dark Knight Rises: It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. from an interpositive, at Christopher Nolan's express instruction and contrary to Warner's standard policy, which provides that 4K scans should utilize Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of The Dark Knight – Delve into the Psyche of Bruce Wayne and the World of Batman Through Real-World Psychotherapy With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, the Batman has been making headway against local crime... until a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker unleashes a fresh reign of chaos across Gotham City. To stop this devious new menace — Batman's most personal and vicious enemy yet — he will have to use every high-tech weapon in his arsenal and confront everything he believes.On Ultra HD Blu-ray we’re offered a terrific remastering of the film and those stunning IMAX sequences, as well as some Blu-ray specific features (only offered in 1080p). Still, a commentary would have been excellent, too. Ultimately, the best reason to own this disc is to have a seriously great reference disc on hand for the impressive video and audio quality. Warner Bros. generally does an excellent job with many of their top-tier 4k Blu-ray titles (the hits for the most part) and The Dark Knight looks and sounds terrific. The best part is that those amazing scenes Nolan filmed in IMAX look jaw-dropping on a big living-room screen in 4k. To accomplish a kind of quasi-IMAX effect at home the widescreen image switches aspect ratio, nearly imperceptibly, between 16:9 for the IMAX scenes (originally in 1.44:1 ratio) and 2.4:1 with small letterbox bars at top and bottom for the similar aspect ratio size of the projected 35mm scenes. The switch (six times for each IMAX scene) is not as distracting as one might think, and overall it’s a huge benefit to the presentation of the film. You can either watch the Focus Points featurettes in the context of the film, separately, or with a “play all” option. There’s also Blu-ray bonus disc of additional features that adds the following (all in HD):
