Physical media is dying. I still have my HD DVD's, Blu-rays and burned DVD's in boxes but I haven't pulled them out in years.

Assuming you have 20/20 vision, you literally need an 85"+ in a living room setting to see anything beneficial from 4K.

Odd thing to post here. Has no bearing on the deal at all.

The big difference between DVD and bluray is the audio. If you have a home theater system blue ray audio cant be beat especially if you have good speakers. Cant get that audio quality anywhere else

The hitmans bodyguard and Jurassic world are some of the worst movies I've seen recently. Not even worth a dollar

#1 that graph has always been bullshit

#2 hdr is the best thing to happen to tvs since the introduction of color. It is WAAAAAY more important than the 4k resolution

It’s debatable, however hdr is only on 4K material and everyone notices that. However, it’s hard for me to not just go for 4K movies on iTunes since they are cheaper, more convenient and look almost exactly the same as the disk versions.

Thx OP. Kick-Ass seems to have gone up in price, it's $15.xx but from 3rd party, fulfilled by Amazon. Amazon's price is up to $22.xx now.

Also, someone else pointed out earlier that it's actually easier to find Amazon deals on BDs (std, 3D, and 4K) by using the deals thing on Blu-ray.com and setting to Amazon Canada. Give it a try!

Have you seen planet earth on 4k bluray? It blows away the 4k Netflix one by a long shot. But of course you need decent tv to tell.

That's one of the big problems I have with Our Planet. It looks gorgeous but it is noticeably worse than Planet Earth 2 and Dynasties

That graph is terrible. That is like comparing watching premium IMAX resolution cameras and screens to regular lower resolution movie screenings at the Cineplex.

Most 4K UHD blu-ray versions look and sound than the 4K iTunes versions by far from what I've compared from my own collection.
With iTunes you always require an internet connection, and would be streaming 20-100+ GB of data every time you watch a 4K movie.
Even with unlimited bandwidth plans, that seems like a waste.

Some movies like the 4K UHD blu-ray combos for Sicario in the list in OP, and all the Mission Impossible movies come with the iTunes versions as the digital copies.

I don't know of any streaming service that has 4k movies that are 100 GB in size. Most commercial 4k releases fit onto a BD-66 disc. There are a few exceptions such as Christopher Nolan's Batman series, Matrix Reloaded, and John Wick Chapter 2.

I have Great Wall and Hitman's Bodyguard on 4k. They look and sound great. I know they received bad reviews but I don't let bad reviews diminish my enjoyment of a movie. I like American Assassin too despite its bad reviews.

Not to mention that graph says sweet nothing about the A/V bitrate difference between an UHD blu-ray and some shitty 1080p stream or rip.

Yep, I was debating whether or not to post it, but my threshold for a good 4K price is at $10
