After buying a 4k tv I’m currently resisting the urge to re buy all the same movies I have and never watch on blu ray but those nice shiny black cases are calling to me!👀👀

i don’t overlap. so the blu rays i already own (in excess of 200) i don’t repeat in purchasing the 4k versions
Unfortunately I only need one in Farmageddon so I'll probably wait until its £10 on it's own.
and there was me thinking HMV west bust years ago🙈

IMHO you're right to resist the urge.

From my own experience for very new and very old movies, 4K discs are superior enough to justify going UHD, even for a double-dip. But my general rule of thumb is the newer a 1080p BR release was when that was the top format, the smaller the gap will be between it and a 4K re-release and I check review sites I trust (generally UltraHD Digest) before deciding.

This one is a good deal any which way: it's the regular selection you often get on Zoom and occasionally Amazon, but for £20 instead of £30, so heat added.

Do you find that UHD discs are noticeably better than streaming 4K movies? I upgraded Netflix but it was probably the worst time to do it with the amount of people streaming at the minute. Disney+ looks pretty decent on most films but watching the new Star Wars yesterday I wasn’t blown away and it got me thinking whether discs were the way to go(confused)

They’re always better than the comparable stream, but it’s very dependant on your devices and what and who you’re buying from if it’s better enough to be worth buying.

For example, my brother has a 4K Apple TV and movies he’s bought through Apple or ported over with an American Movies Anywhere account look amazing. Similarly, Netflix’s own productions are almost disc quality when streamed.

But on the other hand, and similar to your own experience, I recently watched the 3 Captain America movies on Disney+ and although they were very, very good pictures it convinced me to box up my 4K boxset and store it, rather than sell it.

And that’s before you even get to licensing/ownership issues.
Disney is possibly a bad place to start though, as they’re uniquely weird in their half-ar**ed adoption of 4K for such a major studio, particularly outside of the USA.

For example, Coco didn’t receive a UHD disc over here, Finding Dory isn’t in 4K on Disney+ and as far as I can tell they’ve not upgraded any of their Google Play and iTunes content like others have, particularly since their acquisition of Fox, which they appear to have put no effort into upgrading its movies in any format (fingers and toes crossed for a great, new ‘Aliens’ release).
