"Make no mistake, the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray DESTROYS the Blu-ray in every possible way... I'm not kidding or exaggerating. No hyperbole whatsoever. The difference is visible and dramatic...

The Blu-ray is like watching the movie with sunglasses on, where as the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is like watching after you've had laser eye surgery.

...unless there are serious flaws hiding somewhere, Guardians Vol. 2 is probably going to set a new standard as the best, demo-worthy 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray the young format has ever seen... this movie looks bolder, brighter, and more colorful than "Pacific Rim" and "The Great Gatsby".

I wanted to get the Sony UBP-x800 UHD player but I wonder if it'll be redundant with the XBX coming out. I know dedicated players are better but I wish it was cheaper and getting a Dolby Vision update.

X could get a DV update..
I am hoping cause my Samsuck player is getting put it the box and I am using the X as my main player.
They really need to support it.

They already have a Dolby Atmos app on Xbox that lets you pay the one-time license fee for Atmos for headphone (Atmos surround set-up is free). They could set it up the same way for Dolby Vision.

Want Escape from NY/LA movies in 4K.

Escape from New York seems likely within the year since Studio Canal released a 4KUHD in Europe for it, Shout Factory will likely release their version this year. I'm doubting we'll get one for LA, but it's possible since Shout Factory's recent Collector's Edition blu was from a 4K transfer.

The Fog is the other most likely Carpenter title to get a release soon. Hopefully it gets a different 4KUHD scan though, as everyone complains about Studio Canal's.

I picked up several 4KUHDs during the Prime Day sales, they had tons of great deals.

Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection
Bridge on the River Kwai
Scarface
Smokey and the Bandit
Jack Ryan 5 Film Collection

Got round to watching Godzilla. Great job converting it to 4K but such a waste of Cranston. Always bugged me that even more than them cutting just as the monster fights started.

We'll be getting a bounty of John Carpenter 4K's in time for Halloween, it's unfortunate that Shout Factory didn't have the rights to release this one themselves though. Apparently no Dolby Vision or Atmos, and pretty limited on the special features. Hopefully it still looks great!
