Purple Rain - Blu Ray - Remastered Version

Hi Guys,

Was at my local JBHIFI in Melbourne and even though I am pretty up to date on prince stuff...I still check anyways lol

I saw Purple Rain Blu Ray...then another Purple Rain Blu Ray that said 2016 remaster.

Has anyone got the new remastered Blu Ray?

Thanks in advance

I have the stand alone blu ray of Purple Rain and the Prince blu ray movie collection that consist of Purple Rain, Under The Cherry Moon and Grafitti Bridge. There is no difference from what I can see. I've watched both on a 4k tv and they are the same.

I can't compare the previously-released BluRay to the new one, cuz I don't have it, but I think the new one looks great.

Watched "PR" on his birthday this year, was like watching it 4 the 1st time.

By the way, the whole boxset is now on special @ JB:

See that Google Search box at the top right of this page? Why not try it?

.

Also, what kind of Prince fan missed the release of this box set last year? It's not like there were hundreds of releases.

The 2016 remaster has a warmer image, which I've heard mentioned is closer to the look of the original film. I haven't seen Purple Rain on film since 1984, so I'll take their word for it.

That said, the transfers are different enough that, after buying the new version in the 3-film set, I've still hung on to my copy of the prior version because there are things that I like better about each.

NOW THE IMPORTANT (to me) PART: we still need a digital version of the film that doesn't omit Wendy's line of "you know" before she says "you can really hurt people."

I did because it's got two horrible, shitty movies in it.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Apologies to all the forum members except BartVanHemelen for not using the google search.

Bart bro...I remember all the negative crap u used to post about Prince when he was alive. So your posts are usually taken with a grain of salt. Nobody really cares what you have to say.

In regards to what kinda prince fan I am...its not a competition on who is the bigger fan. I was aware of the box set last year...but I had already bought all of those movies seperatly when they came out. So its no real point to spend $$$ on something I already own.

My question was relating to another Purple Rain stand alone Blu Ray that says remastered on it.

What ever happened to answering questions without being an arrogant f*k and degrading people because they ask questions.

Bart check your cards because if its not an Ace then u can lay facedown! haha

The new 2016 Blu-ray transfer of Purple Rain is part of the box set. As are new 2016 Blu-ray transfers of Under The Cherry Moon and Graffiti Bridge--none of which anyone owned previously. All three were released as a set and individually simultaneously.

Hence you getting upset and post this bullshit:

.

.

Oh look, BS you made up.

.

.

You owned UTCM and GB on Blu-ray before last year's release? Oh wait, no, that's just more BS.

.

My question was relating to another Purple Rain stand alone Blu Ray that says remastered on it.

.

No, your question came with zero research. Did you bother to click the link I posted? Did you bother to click on the "news" tab on that page? Did you bother to follow the news link presented there? Of course not. Here, lemme help you: http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=19580 .

So many words, and yet none of them are "oh, I could and should have done a little bit of investigating myself". I mean, who could be expected to figure out that a site with the URL http://www.blu-ray.com/ would possibly contain the information you seek? Or hell, how about just googling it?
