A STAR IS BORN 4K Blu-ray Review: A Star is Reborn


A STAR IS BORN has been remade three times, and I think there is a reason for this: this is a movie that every generation can relate to — love, loss, tragedy, successful and the pitfalls that come with it — dealing with all of these at once in today’s fast-paced society.

A STAR IS BORN looks great in 4K — there’s not many films that don’t. A STAR IS BORN gives you the option to watch in Dolby Vision or HDR10, and my recommendation is HDR10. More contrast and brighter colors. (I hate Dolby Vision — it’s dim and makes everything look washed out.)

Where A STAR IS BORN stands out of the crowd is the Dolby Atmost 7.1 sound. — it’s a sound-driven movie. Depending on your sound bar or surround sound , it feels like you’re at a concert without having to be at a concert (nosebleed section with obnoxious tall people standing in front of you and long lines to the bathroom) , A STAR IS BORN is a must-own.
