Some others posted but these seemed decent as well for the price.

Split

M. Night Shyamalan directs this psychological thriller starring James McAvoy. Kevin (McAvoy) is a man who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, meaning that he exhibits numerous distinct personalities which affect his behaviour. Kevin becomes driven to kidnap three young girls - Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), Claire (Haley Lu Richardson) and Hannah (Kim Director) - on their way to a party. While trapped, the girls witness Kevin’s personality shift repeatedly and try desperately to figure out a way to escape. Kevin has therapy sessions with Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), who slowly realises that Kevin is on the verge of a devastating mental breakdown. As she tries to convince her colleagues that someone with as serious a condition as Kevin can forcibly alter their physiology with their mind, Kevin develops a final, monstrous personality...

Sicario

Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin star in this action thriller from director Denis Villeneuve. FBI agent Kate Macer (Blunt) is recruited by government official Matt Graver (Brolin) to join a team, led by mysterious consultant Alejandro (Del Toro), on a secret mission to bring down a drug lord in Mexico. The operation is fraught with danger and Kate finds herself forced to reconsider what she stands for as she tries to successfully complete the mission and make it out alive... The film was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Cinematography and Best Original Score (Jóhann Jóhannsson).

Jason Bourne

Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows. Jason Bourne, now remembering who he truly is, tries to uncover hidden truths about his past.

I'm sick of this crap every time I come in to a 4K itunes movie deal. Every single time, guaranteed, it has people arguing about disc vs streaming.
the pic in the OP is decieving, might be 4K but it's not a 4K blu ray.

Great deal though.

James McAvoy is a fantastic actor.
Thanks, Split is great

Great point. Should not be advertised as a blu-ray, which has a far different video and sound to this stream deal.

It's a good question that not many ask before jumping in. So on iTunes, you are streaming the content over a connection. This means it's compressed both in video and audio. Like on Netflix, Amazon etc. ITunes does not permit you to download the video in 4k either, so you must have that connection.

It cannot replicate the quality through a 4k player running a 4k disc.

But what if I don't want to spend £25 on a disc? Watching various reviews seems to suggest 4k iTunes is 95% the quality of disc. Also apparently that difference is only discernible if you watch them side by side with the image paused standing about a foot away from the screen? Any further input will be greatly appreciated

I think the issue everyone has is that the picture on the deal is of a 4K disc, but the deal is a 4k stream. They are two different things, the disc is the highest quality way of watching a film and usually about £20, the stream there is a compromise, but depending on your set up you may not notice. I buy both, but tend to only buy discs for films i really want to see again and again, or that I want to experience with the best sound and picture (I find the sound he biggest difference between the two). Either way this a good deal, just don’t expect a disc to be posted to you.

Believe me, if your internet connection stutters or drops completely, your stream will not be 95% of the quality, it will be 0%!

Also, not all 4k discs are £25. Most are now £20 with many being available in "2 for £30" sales. Conversely, not all Apple 4k films are £5, most are much more. And although the digital pricing structure is tempting, there are very few films I would want to watch again. Probably about 5 or 6 a year. So for this small amount I'm willing to pay for a reliable physical disc.

You've also got to factor in the resell value. Bought Blade Runner physical a few weeks ago, didn't much rate the 4k transfer, sold it later and got my money back. Can't do that with a stream!

I'd be for disabling comments in 4k iTunes as it's clearly haters of itunes as I never see them on other streaming 4k services deals!

Also yeah please go elsewhere to compare disc vs streaming as this site is for deals!
I'm absolutely fine with the disc vs streaming debate. This forum has always been about both the best price and also product review/quality.

The gap is closing in terms of video and sound re. Apple TV vs discs. I personally love the idea of watching 4k for 3.99, rather than 20 quid. The main diff in streaming vs disc is now licensing vs ownership.

Spot on!

Although streaming is not for me (yet), the pricing is tempting and I always heat up iTunes deals that have a film I rate. Conversely, any film that’s rubbish gets cooling applied. Yes, even if it’s 4K, even if it’s the cheapest it’s ever been!

Will probably get accused of treating this site as HotUKReviews now!...

Really? You can keep watching film after film, then get a refund on every one?

As far as I was aware, you need to have bought the film by accident, or have some sort of technical problem with it.

Pretty sure simply stating “I didn’t like the film” doesn’t qualify as a valid reason.

As you stated if you have internet issues you won't get the 4k stream so wouldn't that be a technical issue...hence refund.

The original. Apple are aware of the issue and haven’t had it fixed but will provide a refund.

I think you (and the other guy) have completely missed the point. It’s not a question of whether a certain 4K digital film is on par with the equivalent 4K physical film. I think all but the most blinkered would agree that if it’s working correctly (that is, your internet connection) you’d be hard pressed to spot any difference.
No, the point comes back to physical vs streaming (sorry all those that are sick of the debate!) Personally, I have trouble streaming HD, it quite often drops down to a sub-DVD quality. And yes, I do have the fastest available package. If I went for the Apple TV setup, you can guarantee I’m not going to have anywhere near the same experience as watching a 4K disc.
I can’t believe I’m alone in this. Think most of the negative comments stem from this type of frustration. It’s too simple to label everyone trolls or Apple haters, just because they don’t share your enthusiasm for these type of deals.

While it’s true I’ve never tried it, I find it hard to believe that if I struggle with HD quality with both Prime and Netflix, I’m going to have a better experience with UHD Apple TV that requires even greater bandwidth! Unless it has massive buffering. Which is possible I guess.

Well that comes down to your internet being bad sorry don’t take it out on or blame services!

I hope better internet comes to your area soon
Just to clarify, anyone arguing the resell value is a good reason to buy disc, then please consider the following:

Split 4K

ATV (digital) purchase price: £4.99.
Resell value: £0.00
Total cost: £4.99
Film retatined: Yes

Amazon (physical) purchase price: £19.99
Resell value (CEX) £4.00
Total cost: £15.99
Film retained: No

(So you spent £15 more buying the physical media compared to digital, and after selling to CEX you've lost £15.99 along with the film, ive only lost £4.99 and still have the film)



Want to try it selling on ebay for a higher second hand value? Sure!

Amazon (physical) purchase price: £19.99
Resell value (Ebay): £11
Total cost: £8.99
Film retained: No

(So you spent £15 more buying the physical media compared to digital, and after selling on ebay you've lost £8.99 along with the film, ive only lost £4.99 and still have the film)


Hmm....how else can we help your arguement? Maybe you bought Split in a 2 for £30 promo at HMV and then sold it on eBay for maximum purchase saving and maximum second hand value? Sure!


HMV (physical) purchase price: £15 (it was in the 2 for £30 deal. Bargain!)
Resell value (Ebay): £11
Total cost: £4.99
Film retained: No

(So you spent £10.01 more buying the physical media compared to digital, and after selling on ebay you've lost £4.99 along with the film, ive also lost £4.99 but still have the film)



Need even more help to win your case? Sure! Lets sell to your gullible mate down the pub!

HMV (physical) purchase price: £15 (it was in the 2 for £30 deal. Bargain!)
Resell value (Pub): £14 (Your mate is soooo generous!)
Total cost: £1! Wow!
Film retained: No

(So you spent £10.01 more buying the physical media compared to digital, and after selling to your mate you've lost £1 along with the film (unrealistic, but hey..,im trying to help your case), ive lost £4.99 meaning in this senario ive paid £3.99 more than you but that also means i have Split...in 4K...for a real world ownership cost of just £3.99)



You can argue the figures as much as you like, change the film, change the buying price, change the selling price but the fact if the matter remains....the resell arguement does not work. If you are spending more money to buy physical media in the first place, then the arguement of a higher resell value is irrelevant when you do the math because you have to compareyour loss vs the digital purchase price and therein lies the true ownership cost. Sure, you may be a few pennies better off, maybe even a few pounds but overall the level of investment to achieve this and the loss of the film after selling are not a valid arguement. I haven't even factored in the hassle of selling your physical copy such as paypal fees, ebay fees, postage costs, travel costs and your time. All of which eat away at your resell value.





Want to try it on an even newer title?

A Quiet Place 4K

ATV (digital) purchase price £9.99 (pre-order price)
ATV Resell value: £0.00
Total cost to own: £9.99
Film retained: Yes

Amazon (physical)......oh wait a minute, its not out yet!
