Seeing this thread I was reminded that we are still awaiting the Back to the Future 4k release this year. Really can't wait for it..
I hope they will release a worthy collectors edition.
Can't find any recent news on it tho besides the initial annoucement from last year. Guess it will be In October for the anniversary.

I'm kind of happy I don't own the original 3 Indiana Jones films on blu ray. Will be getting them on 4K asap when they get released.

Lawrence of Arabia 4K Blu-ray Review
For its UHD release, Lawrence of Arabia has been split between two discs: part one runs 2:19:23 and part two 1:27:38. Sony's 2160p/Dolby Vision UHD is every bit the filmic wonder one expects it to be, that the film needs to be. It's difficult to imagine the film ever looking any better than this. Sony's presentation practically defies written definition; it truly must be seen to be believed.

Make no mistake, the 2012 Blu-ray still holds its own as one of the finest on that format, but this UHD is something else. It's transformative in all the best ways, a picture-perfect breath-taker that is as expected: a new reference image for the UHD format and proof of physical media's viability, and necessity, in delivering an epic in the most perfect way possible.

Had to cancel my columbia collection order due to hail damage and a refrigerator repairs. At least I picked up Jaws which looked great and is still a damn fine film. Zombie indeed looked fantastic. So weird watching old genre films that dont look like mud.

I bought a Sony X700 uhd player for my 55 inch LG C9, and last night watched my first 4K film, 1917, which was stunning - the only problem was that sometimes I’d see this weird blur that would effect certain parts of the screen. It’s difficult to describe, but if you know what it’s like to have a floater in your eye the image anomaly would be akin to that.

Does anyone here know what I’m talking about- and how to fix it?

Recently got the 4K tv. Now I just need a player. What’s a good price to pay for one?
It depends what features you need. If your TV supports Dolby Vision or HDR10+ then obviously you'll want a player that supports those as well and they're a little pricier.

I have a Sony UBPX700 which you can find for around $150. At the time I bought it, it was the cheapest Dolby Vision player but that might not be true anymore.

I've been waiting for this. I've never seen GOT, I'm ready to be disappointed! Westworld Season 3 comes out in November too.
You're in for 4 seasons of fantastic adult fantasy, followed by a gradual decline, albeit with some shining moments, from mediocrity into utter shit. Enjoy!
