U couldn't expect much from BackDraft on visual quality lah... From laserdisc, till non anamorphic DVD release, until the final version I experienced, region 6 China PAL release and even the first FHD BD release, the pictures had always been little disappointing and not so top notch. My guess is perhaps not much mastering effort put in since DVD first release until today, when compared to pre BackDraft movies like StarWars as well as Indiana Jones.

Sound... On the other hand... Remastering should be much easier?

So which is the reference discs which is a must get? I suppose Aquaman is one.

I just got a Panasonic player thinking to get some nice UHD discs from Amazon?

For visual feats - get Mortal Engine (simply stunning 4K transfer, easily one of the cleanest PQ out there if you really want to showcase 4K)
For surrounds/bass/atmos effects - get Aquaman

I think the master copy itself is already not very good... :P

On the subject of firefighting movies.

Do check out the Hong Kong made

As the light goes out.

Not a bad flick with good surround. Too bad no atmos or DTX

It has been quite awhile since the last update...Well here is another Atmos title that is demo worthy, especially for Atmos effects. Case in point will be a couple of scenes where Zelda's "imaginary" footsteps above the ceiling is so realistic. Good detailed surround and bass to boot as well. In my opinion, the very first Pet Sematary in 1989 is STILL the best in terms of screenplay but this 2019 reboot stood out in other ways. And one of them is definitely in the audio department.


Easily gets a 4.5/5 for the Atmos effects.

Just finished watching Alita Battle Angel...solid bass and Atmos effects. The 4K rip is rock solid with great CGI effects. Highly recommended! I will definitely be getting the physical disc for this. This scores a 5/5 for both PQ and SQ for me.

One of the most spacious sounding action movies I have ever heard. The surrounds are solid and very distinct. Great demo material :)
