      "Similarly the chroma subsampling for a Blu-ray is considerably less than a 4K release, and isn't affected by the fact that it is only an upscale, leaving a much broader set of colour information than the Blu-ray could ever provide."
      Erm think you mean else.. "Considerably less for a 4K release" perhaps?

      Buying 4k blu rays here in the UK is a constantly frustrating experience. I want this film but I can't find an import for under about £30 anywhere on eBay. So, I'll have to stick to renting the standard blu ray for now.

      The above is applicable to waaay too many films.

      Thanks, yes, I've rephrased it to clarify.

      There is a UK 4K release. It is exclusive to Samsung Movie Lounge subscribers, and is only a 1 disc release, but it does exist.

      Enjoyed the movie a lot when I saw it in theaters last summer.....
      I can't agree with your view of the movie, this is a movie that needs to be for every generation and so you cannot compare to Marvel villains and such.
      In the end this movie is well animated and the story is a good one which never bores.

      The disc is in my possession as well and it looks and sounds great so i recommend this disc to everyone.

      The 4K release is available on Amazon streaming in the UK. But as ever it can take some finding.

      Thanks for the review Cas, I really enjoyed the film, and have done so on the 2 other times I have seen it.

      However, as I am sure many others have said before, find it impossible to understand why Disney cannot relase all formats in all the relevant territories, why would 3D fans in the US not want this title and like wise 4k fans in the UK not want this title either.

      In this day and age I find it barking mad that this could be the case.

      I am assuming 3D has died a death in the US and 4k Streaming is the better option in the UK.

      Hmmm I disagree on both points

      CG movies as upscales are an interesting one, as the only reason for this to not have been made in 4K is simply one of cost. In short, bigger server farms. Disney must have looked at the audience (99% kids) and realised that they a) don't know what 4K is, and b) don't care anyway.

      And besides, kids will just watch the DVD their parents buy for them from near the till at Tesco anyway.

      Funny how the only studio which takes 4K seriously is Netflix. The old guard have next to no interest, other than flogging upscales on over priced "4K" discs.

      Incredibles 2 looks head and shouldersbetter on Ultra HD Blu-ray than it does on its 1080p counterpart.

      Not for me. It looks quite darker and a bit under saturated than the Blu-ray. It still looks good but I prefer the Blu-ray image

      I found the Amazon UHD HDR stream surprisingly dark too.

      Overall I was disappointed by the 4K disc. I thought Incredibles 1 4K UHD PQ was better than its 1080p counterpart.

      Managed to get round to watching this via 4K digital copy.. I thought it was a bit dark on screen which was a shame, otherwise it was awesome, I enjoyed the film.
      We get that sometimes when the picture is a touch dark in HDR...

      I do wonder why you jumped on the 4K bandwagon given your so critical of the stuff being produced most of the time.

      I own 100+ 4K UHDs. Majority of them are better than the Blu-ray editions. There are some which are downright bad and I can get extremely critical about them.

      I don't care if the 4K UHD disc was from an up-scaled source but as long as they look and sound better than the Blu-ray I am fine. Sadly I wasn't wowed by Incredibles 2. Coco 4K was great though.

      Matrix Trilogy is hands down the best UHD release for 2018. There are many but this one deserves high praise.

      "Disney's Tomorrowland, was an expensive flop (killing the chances of a sequel to Tron: Legacy in the process),"

      fudge really? I always wanted a Tron Legacy sequel. :(

      "For obvious reasons, Incredibles 2 is yet another Disney/Pixar release which swaps a UK 4K bow for a UK 3D release instead (c.f. Coco, Cars 3), embracing the vastly superior, far more immersive, older format in favour of the almost pointless newer one."

      Fixed that for you.

      Perhaps it's not been released on 4k in the UK because the format hasn't been embraced by the public, and it's currently limping along? I replaced my Oppo 103d with an Oppo 203 and I can honestly say that so far, the difference has been negligible, certainly not worth the outlay.

      Good point. My brother has a 3D projector (I agree it's not that great in TVs, but I enjoy 3D movies in his setup) and has been incredibly annoyed at seeing so many movies being released in 3D in the UK but not here in Canada. It's strange that they don't simply release in all formats everywhere.

      Funny you say that. On my TV it has nice close up and environmental detail but poor resolution of mid range detail.Also because of the light film grain, it is nowhere near as clear as Fantastic Beasts for example.

      The player shouldn't really make that much of a difference if it is doing it's job correctly and the Oppos will definitely do that. I think that there are so many variables with 4k HDR including how your screen is initially set up. Some films look great on a super bright LED and others look great on OLED. Pacific Rim 2 looked great on the mid-range XE90 and the very bright XE93 with the latter showing more detail. Black Panther on the other hand looked OK on the XE90 but looks great on the XE93 with Dolby Vision showing the kind of deep saturated colours you would expect from a film of that type. I watched the Revenant on the XE90 and I wasn't "that" impressed but I'm pretty sure it would look much better on the XE93. Dark films with lots of shadow details should I assume look great on OLEDs. If you are not seeing the difference between a very good 4K HDR disc and and good High Def disc then for me that suggests a problem in the setup because for many films, the difference is clear.

      Anyway I'll probably wait to see if they release a box set with both films and maybe pick that up unless someone has it for a great price.

      Because new glasses will magically extract far more detail when watching something upscaled from a 2048x1080 digital intermediate versus my system upscaling a 1920x1080 image?

      Nah. I watched Coco in both 4K and in 3D and the 3D version is incomparably much better.

      It depends on the film, but Pixar animations are natively rendered in 3D (no conversion needed) and I don't find that either the extended palette or the HDR makes much difference for them. That wouldn't necessarily be the case for something live-action that is shot in 2D, based on a 4K digital intermediate, and makes good use of WCG and HDR.

      The 3D version looks fantastic on my 2016 LG OLED. I still prefer 3D over 4K, I’m not that impressed by UHD movies despite having my set calibrated a couple of years back. I read an article a while back that 3D titles are still selling better here than 4K which probably explains why Disney pick and chose 4K releases in the UK. I’d like to see more 3D reviews here on AVForums as well as /or rather than, the the expensive import 4K titles.

      I'd love to see more 4K UHD / 3d Blu-ray / 2d blu-ray special editions as I'd like the option of 3D for me and 4K when watching with others. To keep the disc count down I'd rather see fewer extras; hours of these really seems a bit pointless, and perhaps the making of documentaries should be online instead. Though I do appreciate extras are a differentiator between discs and streaming.

      Some people love that stuff. Personally I don't have time to watch most of the extras and I don't like seeing the actors on wires in front of a green screen. I obviously know that's how it's done but I just don't want to see it.
