Have a regular blu Ray backup though, this is a delicate piece, this isn't for everyday viewing, it's a true collectors piece.
The book inside is heavy super glossy picture paper it's really stunning!!
All movies should get this treatment. Very cool !!!!!
Coppola absolutely nails the dark ambience designed for the character in Bram Stoker's novel. It is the perfect combination between a costume drama and a gothic horror fantasy film. Every scene contains lavishly designed sets and gaudy costumes, juxtaposed against the cold haunting castle and brutal animalistic violence.
The audio mixing (Dolby Atmos) is excellent and takes perfect advantage of the new surround technology. You can hear all manner of sounds and noises while in the castle, crypts and dungeons. Aside from Keanu's admittedly dull showing, "Bram Stoker's Dracula" is an absolute masterpiece of sight and sound, especially on 4K UHD Blu-Ray.
I was so inspired by this movie in college that I recreated a shot for my student film. The shot I'm talking about is in the intro where blood starts flowing from everywhere, more specifically out of a candle. Do you know how long it took to recreate that candle, the composition, the lighting, and the physical effect of fake blood dripping down, with no experience doing this? At least two hours—for a shot that lasts a split second. And boy did it look good. After doing all that myself, I had to admire and respect what it took to create a whole movie full of magic like that.
Gary Oldman sells the part of Dracula very well. From his tragic beginning, you had to feel something for him. You couldn't just narrow him down into just "the bad guy". He lost something really precious to him and you sympathized with him immediately. Everyone else plays their part well.
I bought the Ultra HD version of this. It is a beautiful transfer with a lot of detailed and reworked colors for some scenes. Can't wait to get more 4K titles. Watch this imagining of a classic literary character, today. Recommend.
I really like the transfer to Blu-Ray of this movie. It brightened up some of the darker scenes but does NOT make things look artificial or overly bright looking. The color, I think, is much better too. HIGHLY recommended!
