Scott Wilkinson .... left in the dark

The big news this week was the pivotal battle of Winterfell on Game of Thrones, and the problem was it was so DARK and badly lit. Scott says that it's almost as if the filmmakers didn't take into consideration that those who are streaming would be dealing with a heavily compressed image, that would crush the details in dark areas. Add the fact that it was the most watched episode in HBO history, it had to deal with congestion as well. The episode will no doubt look better on Blu-ray and in UHD. But with the heavily compressed signal of a 4K stream, it simply didn't.

Scott Wilkinson saw Wonder Woman last night at a smaller Dolby Cinema theater. Scott enjoyed it in Dolby, but he says that the film is too long. It is, however, a great depiction of a female hero that isn't over sexualized like most women are. Meanwhile, Leo saw Game of Thrones for the first time in 4K HDR. He realized that he's seeing much of the details, and it really shows how much the actor's characters are aged. It's so realistic that maybe they should stop using makeup when shooting in high def or beyond.
