Amazon running a fairly standard 2 for £30 on 4k UHD disks, but surprised me that Terminator Dark Fate is included in this before its even released!

Having seen Dark Fate I am not surprised at all

Another poor movie from Hollywood again, literally killed the Terminators …Another poor movie from Hollywood again, literally killed the Terminators franchise in 1 go!!


One go? They did Terminator 3, Salvation, Genysis and the Sarah Connor Chronicles before this to little acclaim/profit (though I liked the SCC). But killing the franchise? The Terminator franchise? How can I put this?

General 4k blu ray question: are most movies being released proper 4k or upscaled from 1080p? I read here last year that some if the marvel releases were some form of upscale.
Majority are still upscaled from '2k' rather than 1080p, but more and more are native 4k now, and even those upscaled from 4k are noticeably improved from blu ray

The UHD versions also tend to have the HDR aspect to them as well 🙌
Cool thanks just cancelled my preorder and reordered 2 4K films

It wasn't that bad, quite enjoyed it. Tend to find like with a lot of recent movies they tend to be watch once/twice rather than keepers/classics.

Majority of Hollywood films, especially the ones with lots of CGI, tend to be mastered in 2K DI (Digital Intermediate), which is a common resolution for production workflow. They master in 2k as it is a lot more cost efficient as renders in 4k would take absolutely ages. 2k DI is then upscaled to 4k. Someone rightly pointed out that lots more films are being mastered in 4k due to better and faster equipment. Most older films are mastered in 4K DI, mainly because they have been shot on 35/70/75mm film and are scanned in 4k, with minimal post processing required.

2K DI has a resolution of 2048x1080p, which is almost 1080p.

I couldn't get this to work with any other UHD-BRs I was vaguely interested in.

According to Live Chat it's because pre-orders have a different shipping process so fall foul of the term that states:

"Please check the "Delivery Details" section during checkout to confirm that all Qualifying Items and Promotional Items have the same delivery speed"

Unusually for Amazon Customer Services they were not bending over backwards to satisfy me with manual adjustments, after-the-fact refunds etc. Their actual suggestion was to buy two and give one away as a gift!

The advisor couldn't assure me the BR would be in the deal on release day (this Monday), but if it is then it should work from that point on.

It's not, IMHO, useful to rely on the 'true' vs upscaled 4K criteria to judge UHD discs before actually watching them. I own 4K discs that came from 2K sources that blow my mind, and I own 4K-sourced transfers where I would say not to bother and stick to the 1080p BR or streaming services.

As mreriksen hinted at, I find when it really jars is during fast moving effects work in big budget movies. Spider-man swinging around in the MCU for example has some sort of, not quite blur, but lack of smoothness with the rest of the picture. I've already seen a 4K clip of this movie where the Rev-9 is bounding around in the factory and it looks dire.

Dr Strange first, then a couple of other MCUs to test if I was doing something wrong. What did you order, if you don't mind me asking? I'll have a look and get back on to Live Chat.
Wait 5 years when 8K is a thing, and these will be the same price as £1.99 Blu-Rays.

I tried it with Dark Fate and Apocalypse Now since they were the first 2 on the list (Not purchasing but was to have a look at if it was a recurring issue you were facing). I think Amazon have accidentally put the marvel titles in the wrong listing in the way that 2 for £30 only works on marvels for them and then 2 other titles also equals £30

Yes, manually perusing the selection I think you're right - it's two separate deals that are the fundamentally the same!

Great answers folks, thanks for clearing this up

Yep it will be a massive seller for them and drive stock of older titles in the offer out
cool ordered dark fate too and John Wick 3
It was in zavvi offer too a while back. Got mine despatched and should be here tomorrow.
powerbrick28/02/2020 13:42

had UHD Dark Fate for weeks.


I assume digital? Digital releases are a few weeks ahead of physical these days. Even more ways to try and get people buying digital. No thanks!
Only 4 on the whole list I don't have.

Fast 8 (because I'll get the complete boxset one day)
Fantastic 4 (because obviously)
A Simple Favour (doesn't look like my cup of tea)
Death Cure (I don't buy these young adult films)
Dark Fate was great, best in the series since 2.
Just went to order this and it went through at full price. Terminator has been removed from the offer! It still listed it 2 for 30 when I selected it and by the time I'd chosen a second title it has gone off. So annoying!

Needs to be expired now.

The deal is still on they just removed that one title.
OP you might want to remove reference to Terminator.
