Do think it’s stupid when people say it’s on Netflix.

1 won’t be forever and 2 it costs a lot more.

Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Perfectly watchable imho. I enjoyed it, not sure I'd want to rewatch it though.

It depends on the film and cost; older films will have little benefit in being owned in 4k (some end up with a ludicrous mannequin effect from post processing the film) and if the cost is high enough and there's little chance in re-watching it then why buy it?

However, with the cost and age of this film, it will likely be a decent 4k watch for the cost.
Age of the film has nothing to do with resolution, the film is scanned at a 4K (or higher) resolution. Bladerunner and Lawrence of Arabia look stunning and have been around for a while.
To add to the Netflix comments, many people will already have a subscription. In this case it will cost them nothing extra, and they might not know it’s on there. So it’s a valid point, highlighting it’s availability.
And no, it’s not 4K or HDR, but honestly, for such an average, watch-once film, does it really matter?

Personally I thought Blade Runner (assume you mean the original) looked pretty ropey in 4K. By far the worst transfer of all my 4K discs and promptly sold it after watching. (A rarely mentioned benefit of physical over digital).

Yes it matters

Yes it matters


It does as this is for a purchase of a film not a subscription service that rotates it's content. If the comment had been "£3.99 on Amazon" that's valid but would also beg the question of "thanks for the comment but now why not go make your own deal for Amazon?".

What's that got to do with this deal?

Except this wasn't filmed in 4K:

ultrahd.highdefdigest.com/340…tml
"Oblivion' was shot digitally primarily on RED Epic equipment and is presented here at an aspect ratio of 2.40:1. The 4K version of the movie is an up-convert from a 2K digital intermediate, and has received an HDR pass during its conversion to give the image deeper colors and contrast. Alas, this 4K image arrives on home video with a bit of debate about whether the 4K picture is actually any better than the previously released 1080p Blu-ray, which was pretty much a reference quality transfer for the format."
Personally I thought this was a really under rated film, I really liked it, and am amazing soundtrack!

With regards to the Netflix comments. They're irrelevant with regards to whether a deal is hot or cold, but as a bit of info for anybody who has Netflix and didn't know the film was on there at the moment it's useful.

For god sake don't start, it's £3.99 for a film that is not that price elsewhere, added benefit is it's been converted to 4k however good that is. End of!
great price, I enjoyed the film, heat!

This simply isn't true, older films shot and produced on 35mm film benefit more being owned in 4K (if it has a good transfer) as film has higher effective resolution than 4K whereas most modern films everything is done on computer at 2K.

A modern film on 4K Blu-ray can still benefit in other ways over regular Blu-ray thanks to higher bit-rate, HDR, WCG etc etc
The “it’s on Netflix” is a pointless comment. It’s also on DVD, Blu Ray and countless other streaming services.
This post is about the price for the iTunes version, leave out any other services/formats.

Haha, calm down! I'm not 'starting'. It's a great price for a great film even in HD and I've added heat. But I don't see anything wrong with correcting what was written and pointing out this wasn't filmed in 4K, I think it's good for people to be aware that a lot of 4K stuff is upscaled.

You will have to excuse me as it's usual for people to start bashing iTunes 4k on hukd!

Exactly my point, an “old” film can look stunning if treated correctly and yes modern films shot digitally don’t necessarily have the same resolution possibility’s

No worries, I should have written something positive like 'heat added' as well to make it clear I wasn't bashing the deal.
I don't really do Apple stuff myself but I'm half tempted with Apple TV, the 4K deals they keep knocking out are amazing.
