‘Oppenheimer’ Continues to Astound on 4K and Blu-Ray

Christopher Nolan’s record-setting film Oppenheimer has arrived on home video and we checked it out to see if it’s worth rewatching at home.

Today, Oppenheimer arrived on 4K, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital. Christopher Nolan’s epic biopic about the creator of the atomic bomb has sent all kinds of box office records, for good reason, and now viewers can enjoy the film as many times as they wish at home.

I got to check out the Blu-Ray release of Oppenheimer and while it’s obviously not quite the same as seeing it in the movie theater, the film has lost none of its spectacular visuals. Every visual detail that drew viewers in is still there in brilliant color/black and white, providing viewers with the perfect way to enjoy what is easily one of the best films of the decade, if not the century. With the debate between physical media and streaming heating up, I can’t emphasize enough that this is one film that should be picked up in physical form.

One thing that drew my attention to how Oppenheimer is packaged is that there’s actually three discs included, one for each version of the movie (Blu-Ray/DVD) and the third disc is just for the special features. Usually the special features are found on the main menu of the film itself. But in this case, Oppenheimer has so many special feature (over three hours in fact), that they had to be placed on their own disc.

The benefit of this is that having the special features on a separate disc makes it easier to explore all of the features available. And they are very well organized. The part many will like best is that the main “Making Of” documentary is split into a number of chapters that can be viewed individually, so you’re not automatically locked in to a lengthy documentary.

Another special feature that I think many will like is the section where they talk about how the 65 mm black and white film was created for the movie. It was an interesting look into the filmmaking process that you don’t see all that often for movies anymore, especially since the filmmaking process has gone almost wholly digital in recent years. It was refreshing to see that the analog process is alive and well.
