Life of Pi in 4K Blu-ray looks spectacular. The colourful scenes of Pi stranded on the vast ocean while the sun sets around
him are breathtakingly crisp and vivid.
The amount of detail conveyed by the Oppo UDP-203 outshines the Panasonic DMP-UB900.
Every ounce of detail – from the rough texture of his sun-exposed skin to the silky smooth clear water – is etched out
with superb clarity and subtlety.
Each strand of the CGI tiger’s fur looks so tactile that you want to reach out and pet him.
Colours are effusive, inviting you to look deeper into every inch of the screen. The Oppo goes for an appealing colour
balance that’s aimed to impress – reds,
blues and yellows are richly hued – but they don’t ever look unnatural.
