Mulan 木兰 - A 4K HDR Demo worthy release
« on: September 06, 2020, 08:52 »
Keep a lookout for the 4K HDR release when it comes out end of the year. Simply watching the 1080p rip last night, I am awed by how good the color rendition and the clarity it exhibited. The colors are vibrant and really showcase the best of HDR. I will definitely be getting the physical disc as it is hard to get a stellar 4K HDR transfer these days. If Disney + digital streaming quality is anything go by...I'm pretty sure it will be even better :)



Even Vincent agreed :)

Watched it yest on big screen with family. exciting movie for us.

Wow at Mulan's house there. the colours r awesome.

I love 1 part when the bad guy Bori Khan is fighting the king at the bamboo tall tower there.
His dialogue is coming from front heights there petty obvious. ( will need to rewatch that scene)

Definitely worth to get a 4k HDR copy.  Hope looking forward to have  good SQ too

PS:  Saw report that her daughter urge her to film Mulan.
It's Disney Happiness for everybody cheers . :)

Yea that scene with Boris Khan talking down to the emperor from a high altitude. But apart from that, I thought the Atmo effects only used sparingly. The only times that are more active for the Atmos channels are the witch turning into a rock of ravens and flying overheads.

I will focus on the brilliant 4K HDR transfer instead for this movie.

You know what, I can hardly recognise Jet Li :P ;D

Also I felt weird when the dialogue is in English ;D

But it’s a watchable movie with excellent color tone :)

Yeah.  Took me by surprise too.  What?  Jet Li's in it?  Where?

That's where I replay and true enough saw that it was indeed him.  I thought it was another chinese actor, couldn't remember his name.

This is a Disney movie and not the typical HK or China period flicks with lotsa gore. English was the original dialogue. Definitely no Chinese version unless dubbed.

The theme song Reflection has so many versions. I prefer the Chinese version by the actress

She can sing too.. Unfortunately she is already 33 and won't have many years to play youthful roles.

Surprise Jackie Chan is not in this movie. Donnie Yen looks so old now.

The version by Christina Aguilera was terrible with a lot of synthesised bass. Erhu was missing too.

If you ask me, I would prefer Lea Salonga’s original soundtrack in Mulan 2000, the animated film! Her voice is crystal clear, controlled and persuasively powerful ;D

Watch it last night and it was very disappointing. It's a Western movie and a western interpretation of Chinese culture. The costumes, make-up, etc are almost identical to Fu Manchu's "evil empire" style. The script is very shallow and I almost walk away half way during the movie.
