​i find the 4k on Amazon to look poor compared to YouTube and Netflix when using the native app on the TV but it looks better on the ps4 pro for whatever reason.

And that is precisely why I'm not buying a 4k unit just to update my TV.
1080p is good enough for me.
If, when we need one and ours breaks and I can get a good deal on one I'll buy, but until then no chance.
Plasma, lcd, led, HD ready, 720, 1080, 3d curved, oled, now 4k ever get the feeling you've been had ?
I'm all for technology but I've looked at both 1080 and 4k can't see a massive difference from 8 feet I'm afraid.

Life of Pi in 4K really is stunning! Even the Mrs was wowed. Ha.

great find. been looking for some 'reasonable' prices for 4k films! Much appreciated ! heat!

So now you're telling me that many "4k" films aren't even proper 4k?! Honestly I don't know why people are bothering with it.

4K isn't about the higher resolution it's about the HDR. You should see a noticeable difference between a 1080p set and a 4K set with HDR.

Life of Pi is a really interesting one - its mastered in 4K and a large amount of the cgi is rendered in 4K, however most of the camerawork happened with the ARRI Alexa, same camera as Skyfall and probably the first digital camera that outshines the very very best that Analogue can manage. It shoots natively in 2880x2160 that is then downsampled to 2880x1620 ARRIRaw, which can then, using seriously advanced tech, be restored to 3840x2160, however it is not "native" 4K. Planet Earth 2 used the newer model of this camera, the Amira, for some of the more remote shots this year (Antarctic episode especially) that can shoot 200FPS 2880x2160 which is incredible in its own right, but remember than when it comes out in "4K" if you're not fussed about Life of Pi this time round!
Hope I haven't nerded you out!

They are 4k. Just not originally filmed in 4k. Like a lot of the early Blu rays were upscaled DVDs.
To be fair - they are better at upscaling now than they used to be, got much more powerful hardware to work with. Most of 4K blu rays comes from increased colour depth, not resolution. Unless you're sitting relatively close to the TV you won't be able to see the resolution increase.
Colour depth and Contrast though - no comparison!

Don't have a 4k TV or player at the moment, probably because there's not a great deal of choice out their and based on the list of films above it will be a while longer before I take the plunge. Would probably only go for the Martian and the Revenant, maybe, but would have to check if picture was significantly better than Blu-ray, which like the early Blu-ray releases were just dvd transfers on a different format. Voted hot anyway

​this reminds me of the big debates a few years ago regarding screen sizes and 1080p vs 720 or even 1080i. when sat in a typical family living room you are not going to have much improvement. I imagine its still the same with larger screens and 4k vs 1080p .

I bought a 40inch 4k TV, and having watched the Revenant in UHD, I think there is a noticeable improvement in quality over blu ray. .....Do CEX offer these 4k blu rays in store and at the same price? Thanks

4K is a bit of a con in the film making world as prob 90% are just 2k up scaled.
Of the current cinema releases right now only ALLIED, BAD SANTA 2, MISS PEREGRINE, SNOWDEN, SULLY AND ROGUE ONE are true 4K films.

are these films HDR? because I spent loads of extra money getting a HDR one, but it turns out nothing is actually made in HDR...

Does anyone know if blurays actually cost more to make or are we just being scammed by the industry as it's newer and better technology. I know bluray has been out for a while and think I bought my first bluray player about 3 or 4 years ago but to this day I have never bought a bluray disc, always dvd's. I know I'm tight lol but lets say they shoot these movies in 4k or whatever and they then give you the option of HD or UHD, dvd or bluray, does it actually cost more to produce a bluray disc compared with a dvd. I mean the box, packaging and advertising are the same. The disc looks the same yet the price on average is 50% more than a dvd implying that it must cost 50% more to make and produce because if it didn't well that would be dishonest, wouldn't it.

No offence meant to the op. For anyone who specifically wants 4k bluray this offers a good saving over new but personally I think we are being legally scammed by the industry.

Revenant definitely is. Just checked the 4k blu ray box.....Can't wait for Rogue one in 4k

I contemplated whether I should post but the people above were arguing whether they were 4K or not. I don't work in this industry but find it interesting. The point is that good 2K will look good upscaled or not. If you have a 4K player get the 4K version as that's what the studio designed for your player. Easy

In short, yes, it does cost more to make a modern film for 4k output, but that extra all depends on a number of factors. For a start, post production effects need more detail & rendering if true 4k, however many are still only output at the moment in 2k. Equipment to capture / keep 4k can be more expensive too, e.g. storage, computers, cameras etc, plus more people / time needed to work on it. I'm sure there's a fair bit of supply & demand pricing that adds to the cost we pay though too. However, that said, Lawrence of Arabia (1962) was recently re-mastered from original reels in 8k I believe and downscaled for 4k viewing, so not just newer films that can be made for 4k if conditions are right. Expect many more 4k & 8k movies to come & hopefully drop in price.

Ownership of physical media/content must be taking a massive hit with high bit rate streaming services, I don't actually know anyone personally that buys films or series anymore, I would say it's a dying industry.

I'm 38 I can remember hiring videos from blockbuster and global video, people used to proudly display their massive range of videos and series in their living rooms, then it went Dvd.

Streaming is far better, easier, instant, less wasteful, just not a lot about for 4k at the moment, but plenty of 1080 content available.

I didn't. I was just wondering what other opinions there were out there but I already knew the answer. The guy in Richer Sounds though did tell me if I ever bought a bluray I would never buy a dvd again.They been out a long time now so the price difference should be a lot less but it isn't.

Just wondering where 4k will go where terrestrial tv is concerned but looks like newer generations seem more into streaming than mainstream tv. My son watches very little live tv and streams most of his viewing so perhaps this is where it will go. I'm happy with the HD quality of my mid-range LG so will see what's about when it needs replacing but I don't see the point in going out and buying new tech just because it's new. I do smile though when I see people saying their new 4k tv is better than their previous 1080 tv. Of course it will be. My new 1080 tv I bought two years ago was a far better picture than my previous 1080 tv from 5 years ago. Similar spec, slightly bigger screen but picture side by side was much better. Top and bottom of it is if you are happy with what you have bought then that is all that matters.

Yes, I agree with what you're saying but I would have thought that all the film companies would already have / own the very best equipment available. The point I was trying to make is how they warrant the difference in cost between bluray and dvd. As far as I know all or most movies are available in dvd or bluray format. I will give you an example. Yesterday I was in Asda and picked up a dvd copy of the new Independence Day movie at £9.99. The same movie on bluray was a fiver more. I am not interested if the bluray has extra uncut scenes as all I will want to watch is the movie. So the movie has already been shot, edited etc for both formats so the only increase in cost for bluray would be post production costs. I still think we are being ripped off by the fact that it is better technology alone the companies will already own the best equipment irrespective of the end format. I went and saw the latest star wars movie when it came out. Depending what time I wanted to go I had a choice of 2k or 4k. Both same cost at the cinema.

No it's not. You've posted one deal in your whole 10 years here - it's got nothing to do with "flaming keyboard techies". I posted an informative thing that you could just skip if you wanted - at least people are adding to the conversation rather than making crappy analogies!

Thanks op just ordered this lot! Will watch them all and hopefully make my money back or maybe even a small profit

I will find out myself one day if I can find it in myself to pay the extra lol. Even the ones on offer at asda are always twice the dvd price but I will promise myself that over christmas I will try a bluray and then we shall see for the future. I don't mind paying a bit extra but my wife can't see the different between SD and HD so it could be money wasted on her.

Some interesting comments and judging by the heat a lot of people perhaps agree that blurays are worth the extra.

It's not compulsory to buy films you already own again, but worth buying new films on BR. I did re-buy most of my favourites, but as I say I didn't have to. BR players also upscale, so your existing DVDs look better anyway.
