Can't wait to see what real 4k looks like.
I've had my second gen LG oled 1080p working like a champ in the living room for years. Now I have the start to a decent man cave / bedroom ha ha
The Goonies wasn't a great Bluray IIRC but I don't remember BTTF being poor.
It's not an age thing, it's down to how much time was spent mastering the disc. Some discs just got a quick and dirty transfer, some had proper frame-by-frame mastering.
Films that got a bad Bluray release such as Predator, have been done properly this time around for 4K. Predator was a waxy mess on Bluray, through multiple releases, with overdone DNR scrubbing all the detail from the image to remove film grain.
Other movies from the same era as Predator, the Bluray is perfectly fine. Not saying the 4K isn't better but nowhere near as noticeable.
As an alternative to discs and a 4K spinner, perhaps have a look at the Apple TV4K.
Sticky: This thread was initially set up to source and share information about UK iTunes movies bargains. For anybody looking for info on this, I would strongly recommend downloading the CheapCharts app. It does a far better job than any internet thread ever could. Since the original post the...
Many of us decided against building US movie library and just stick to the UK iTunes Store. So this thread is to focus on the UK sides of things and keep all the other white noise out of it. Remember it’s all about buying movies and collection building NOT about watching any of them :p
4K releases on iTunes are cheaper and if you will never upgrade the size of your TV to something large or have a full surround system it's a decent compromise.
On the other hand if you can see yourself with a 75" TV, an AVR and a 7.2.4 system one day then discs are a better source for audio/video but unnoticeable over a quality stream with a smaller TV and a soundbar.
I have merged this into this thread and deleted the duplicate thread you made elsewhere. You can buy a central stand for the XH9505 or Amazon or eBay or similar. Just search for VESA table-top TV stand and make sure the VESA holes match up witht the dimensions in TVs specs.
If you go for a 43" what I've already said still applies, buy cheap, not expensive. In the future when 42" OLEDs are released things will change, but right now its the only sensible thing to do.
