    Thumbs up 4K Blu-ray discs for release in 2018

    Just thought this might be a useful buying guide for folks (scroll down for list): https://www.whathifi.com/features/4k...nd-coming-soon

    So what's going to be added to you shopping list?

    Great link 'dat Marco, will be looking in on that list.
    Currently have on 4K HDR:

    Batman Begins
    The Dark Knight
    Dark Knight Rises
    Blade Runner Final Cut 4 Disc boxset
    Blade Runner 2049
    Man of Steel
    Superman V Batman Dawn of Justice
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th Anniversary Edition.
    Leon the Professional
    Pacific Rim
    Starship Troopers
    Terminator 2
    Wonder Woman

    Mostly big blockbustery/ Scifi films I guess, (I have other types of movies too on Bluray) but as well as being great movies I like, these kind of visual films really lend themselves to the 4K format on a big telly.

    Definately on the shopping list going forward:

    Independance Day (yes!)
    Neon Demon
    Dredd (yes!)
    Fifth Element
    Bram Stokers Dracula

    Buying 4K movies is an interesting one?
    A bit of an investment so you need to be a bit more discerning in choosing really.

    Like the film...check.
    Is it worth it over the cheaper Bluray...much better picture, extra extras, better soundtrack...check.
    Is it one of your watch again and again movies...check.

    Not all 4K HDR disks are noticably better than the Blurays so always worth looking into, especially if your player of TV can upscale 1080p to 4K.

    This weekends treat is Blade Runner 2049...been waiting 30 yrs to see this.
    No expectations...honest Guv.

    Picked up another two (Damn you Amazon for 1 click buying.. )

    Independence Day

    Interestingly, the ID4 is a 2 disc version, loads of extras 'natch but an extended Directors cut of the film.
    Cool - like this film and be good to see a different version of it.

    The visuals in 4k should be crackin', coming tomorrow.
