    Silence of the Lambs UHD video quality

    I finally took advantage of the 4.99 sale of Silence of the Lambs UHD. I currently own the Blu Ray disc, so thought an upgrade with HDR/DV plus UHD would look better. In this case, the UHD is not better. I know Lambs is an old movie and was filmed on actual film, so I expected grain. However the amounts through pretty much the whole movie are very distracting. The opening sequence my wife said "I had no idea that it was snowing in this scene". It wasn't, it was the grain.

    I haven't tried yet, but is there a way to watch this in HDX on a 4k TV? It defaults to UHD, so not sure i can downgrade. The HDR actually i think emphasizes the grain on this specific movie.

    Generally you can pick which resolution you want to use from the control bar, the thing that gives you pause and fast-forward/rewind buttons and closed captions. While playing, one of the controls should say UHD. Select it and pick HDX instead.


      Thanks , i'll try that later today. hopefully that helps. Can't believe i'm saying "Dolby vision go away!!"


        Update: I was able to downgrade to HDX and while the grain is pretty much gone, the picture is fairly blurry as expected on a 65 inch. It's a trade off, but in this case, the HDX version is less distracting. First 4K version I have had to do this with.


          This film is consistently grainy in the 4K mastered BR disc release as well, and this has been discussed frequently elsewhere. I am chalking it up to the film stock used. Either it was shot using a high-speed film (such as Ektachrome, used for low-light situations), or it was a lower-speed film that was underexposed & then "pushed" during chemical processing to lighten it up (which increases grain). Either way, I suspect it looked close to this in theaters when released.

          Personally film grain doesn't bother me too much, but I have to admit this movie is pushing the limit on a 65" screen. It's very possible it could be the DV brightening the picture & exposing more grain, but I'll stick with more details & a wider color palette before dialing it back to HDX
