Once Upon a time in the west Arriving on 4K
#1
A couple weeks back, Kino's official Twitter account confirmed that Paramount will be releasing Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West on 4K for its 55th Anniversary![Image: pqbxpm.jpg]


This has been strongly suspected for a while now, and I also recently spotted a Paramount employee watching, and rating it on his Letterboxd account, which has happened leading up to eventual Paramount releases. Obviously this is Paramount, so we have to be cautiously optimistic here. I'll update the post once more details comes out.

I suppose all the edit problems will still be there (including the waking up from the platform scene).

It’s Paramount so we will beyond lucky if it it a hands off 4k master of the exact Blu-ray edit. Knowing them it will fubared to hell in DNR and disc mastering either with or without the same mono that’s been reused from the LD over and over. No new extras and most or some of the DVD legacy extras ported.

That darn ending music cue problem will likely never be fixed.

I'm hoping for the best but not expecting it, sadly. Sad

Look on the bright side, this will give us new mastering that can be use to fix the original version at home Wink

UHD BD quality download on Kaleidescape, a whopping 86.8 GB

Review of UHD - May 8, 2023
PICTURE | The 4K HDR release of the revered Leone epic looks gorgeous but is a little too clean, removing the necessary grit, resulting in a look that’s untrue to the original film

SOUND | Crisp and clean while staying true to the soundtrack—but, once again, where’s the original mono mix?

With the link to Kaleidescape.

I’m still waiting for mine to ship on street date but basically:
DNR applied throughout, different more saturated color timing, no touching of the audio ending error so I assume it’s the Blu-ray audio recycled but likely hit with noise reduction or processing. The lossy mono will be the same bd source which was just a lossy version of the LD pcm with the same inherent defects.

But to make matters worse it’s shoved into a BD-66 so there’s compression artifacts everywhere.
Why Paramount why? I’ve been dreading this release for exactly these reasons.
And they have the audacity to charge $40 when the UHD film size is like 56gb and the streaming 4K version is 83 or so.
