Sony has finally released the Ghostbusters’ undervalued sequel to Blu-ray, in addition to celebrating the original film’s 30th Anniversary. In addition to a mass of other merchandising, Sony has issued a sizable Blu-ray box set which contains a slight remastering of the Ghostbusters 4K Blu-ray and the new Ghostbusters II disc in a classy Digibook packaging. However, something needs to account for the enormous size of the box, and that’s where the video review comes in.
This limited edition set is hand numbered and holds a unique Slimer statue, which as it turns out, is surprisingly well made. Is the set worth the asking price? Well… we’ve linked the video below.

It’s been said that this edition of Ghostbusters is superficially inferior in terms of picture quality from the standalone 4K-mastered BD they issued last year. They used the same basic film transfer done at 4K but had to squeeze on more special features, affecting compression rates.
I updated my review of the 4K disc to reflect this and honestly… I’m just not seeing it. Yes, bitrates are cut by about 10 Mbps (which is substantial) but even running them as side-by-side as possible. even the toughest scenes looks pretty much identical. I can see problems for those on significantly sized screens, but most won’t have issues.
