: last night I watched #TheHungerGames
Format: #4K #UltraHD #Bluray
voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
I'm not exactly the target demographic for these films (give me Battle Royale any day), but I can appreciate what they're going for. Obviously the violence is watered down, but the end result is the same: it's a pretty solid look at the glossy side of a society and the dark underbelly that it relies upon to sustain it. The cast is good too (Banks and #StanleyTucci
in particular are great), and the film is well directed. It manages to avoid getting bogged down in too much overplayed drama as well. My second favourite of the series.

The UHD provides a noticeable increase in fine detail. Visual effects can tend to look a touch softer than the rest of the film at times, but shots such as close-ups show some really nice details. There are also some changes to the palette. Colours are a bit more refined, and shadow detail and black levels appear improved also.
The track on the Blu-ray was pretty decent to begin with. The UHD track featured the same qualities with the benefits of an object-based Atmos mix. Pans are nice, separation is good and LFE content is plentiful.
