084. Bonus – Requiem For A Dream

We love producing extra shows for all of the listeners and this is one of them! We summarize Darren Aronofsky’s big millennium hit while diving into Lionsgate’s 4K release. Requiem stars Ellen Burstyn whose performance was downright incredible. In addition, we get acting chops from Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans and Christopher McDonald.

A dreamy thank you goes out to Sam for requesting this review and grading. He has not seen this movie on 4K Blu-ray yet but has strong intentions on buying it. Your hosts discuss as much as they can on this seriously dark drama about drug addiction. We then plunge into the video and audio quality of the Disc. Is this murky film visually something that would appeal to 4K lovers? How about the jump cuts and mind-bending effects on the format? A new Atmos track was produced for this release but does it work? You will find the answers by playing the episode along with much, much more!

MOVIES in 4K is where BillChete and Lady Phantom review, discuss, analyze, criticize and often times debate one movie that has been released on the 4K Blu-ray format each and every episode. Guiding you on the merit of the movie with recommendations and on the purchasing power of physical media.
