April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle- hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

A film in which Shia LaBeouf is the best actor by a mile. Great film but is the 4K that much of an improvement?
Fantastic film.

Fantastic film.


Meh, I recently watched it again and it appears the Germans can't shoot straight and they used rather a lot of tracers. Anyway, seeing a real Tiger rather than a cgi rendering was worth a look.

Is your TV real or fake 4K? Serious question. Because that's more likely to be useful than this oft asked and tiresome question.

Wow, did you get out of bed on the wrong side?
My TV is a Philips 903. It's real 4k

The Atmos sound track is said to be extremely immersive.
Apparently it's "Fury – Real 4K, HDR" for anyone interested

For that question, there is no right side of the bed to get out of. Point is (again), yes most films are not from 4K sources, but the reasons are known and for the most part makes little difference anyway. The HDR and WCG technologies are key. They are the difference maker. It's why as great as OLED is, it still cannot fully match the wow factor HDR brings to certain scenes of a good quality LED TV. It's why many manufacturers are looking towards the next technologies to match the infinite blacks and contrast levels of OLED with the brightness of LED.

Only without those technologies does your question makes sense.

That's simply not true.
If it's upscaled from 2k it's upscaled by a factor of 2. That means that 1 pixel = 4pixels
If you truly want the most of your 4k screen you need 4k material

The rest makes lots of difference as well, but the question is a valid one

Nope. First of all the upscaling tech of movie studios is infinitely better than your TV or DVD player. More importantly resolution is not the most important factor for film/tv picture quality. Contrast is, which is why OLEDs are said to be superior. Then colour, which is why the new WCG tech with a billion colours is important. I can't even remember what is 3rd but after that comes resolution. Not to mention the fact that a lot of films were not filmed at 4K (digital cameras only) in the first case so you would have to upscale them anyway lol. That situation has of course changed in the last few years but even so, until CGI becomes easier to produce at higher quality there will always be a trade off.

*edit* The points made below by @biddy2 about bit rate are also an important factor.

Look at 4K of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. If you have a plain 4K TV then the difference between the 4K and 2K copies is there but minimal. One of the reason is because it is an upscaled 2K film. But if you have a great 4K HDR TV the difference between the 2K and the 4K discs are literally night and day. There is no comparison, they are not even close.

The problem is that advertisers know that it is easier to sell higher resolution to the general public than the more complicated concepts of contrast ratio and colour fidelity. Your question is the result and that's on them.


The question was, is (and until 8K 80" TVs become mainstream) always will be invalid.

Nah, he’s absolutely correct in what he said. You’re also ignoring the fact that these discs allow for far higher bitrates which helps bring out extra detail in itself compared to standard blu ray. Some “fake” 4K films are also finished at higher than 2K (like 2.8k) too, so you are gaining extra detail too.

Resolution is not the be all and end all of whether a disc is making the most of your screen. Ever notice how some TV channels look like arse on Sky/Freeview etc compared to others despite having the same resolution? That’s to do with bitrates. Without those being high, you can still have a crap looking real 4k picture quality. Films don’t work how games work. (Resolution is more important there.)

This is why nobody should be basing their purchasing decisions based on that little fact alone. That terrible real or fake website has done serious damage by spreading the nonsense it did. Honestly, pick up Pacific Rim on 4k and tell me you don’t see a difference because despite it being finished at 2k, it’s still one of the best 4k blu rays available.

Started off well but the final battle scene was just ridiculous, gave the impression it was scripted by someone whose entire knowledge of WW2 tactics is derived from playing the first 3 Call of Dutys.
My biting point, thanks OP.

You could rent this from. cinemaparadiso.co.uk/ it's a great service with lots of 4k dolby vision atmos disc. Last major disc by post service. Two week free trial too.
