4K Movies--Where to buy

I just purchased a 4k Movie and 4k BD player.

For those that actually buy 4k movies where do you shop? Locally like Best Buy or online like Amazon? Is there somewhere better that I'm missing? I really dislike Amazon's layout. I'd like to build a collection but I'm starting from scratch so I will need to buy several.

You really just need to take the "L" here and hit the showers.

The difference is even noticeable with a cellphone.

Are you watching actual 4k content or 720p cable upscaled?

There is a difference.

Although his predictions are a little off he is fairly knowledgeable on the subject.



It is a moot point anyway. The public started buying them so that is what they are making. They have come way down in price so even if 1080p were still going to be a thing they would be just about the same price anyway.

Weird argument you are making. The resolution is noticeable with a decent TV.

I will argue the bigger advancement in recent TVs may be HDR and wider color space.

It is pretty silly. 4 times as many pixels clearly equates to a very noticeable difference compared to 1080p. You can argue that it diminishes at certain depths, sure. But the difference is absolutely obvious. Diminishing with increased depth doesn't negate the physical quality difference.

Exactly. Arguing your eyes can't see it is silly. Even the usual charts of diminished depths seem off a bit from at few feet.

I watched Hunger Games in 4k last night. I could see the pores in Jennifer Lawrence's nose, make up lines on some actors and tiny wrinkles in their costumes. You can definitely tell 4k vs regular blueray.

I have a fairly new 60" in my basement alongside a 4k. I can see a difference, especially with nature documentaries.

The cost really isn't even any different. I actually spent less on the 4k than I did the HD. Whether it's overhyped and whether there is an actual difference are two different questions. My eyes see a difference, I know that.
