    Lord of the Rings Trilogy 4K UHD box set, this should be a revelation compared to my DVD box sets of the extended versions.

    are there any plans of selling LOTR and Hobbit trilogy 4K discs separately or just the box sets.
    Not really interested in the extended versions and paying for three extra discs.
  3. Supposedly an even bigger collector's set may be coming Summer 2021. I doubt the individual movies get UHD releases until all of the box sets are sold out.

    And the theatrical cuts are already included.

    Francesco with Mickey Rourke has been released on Blu-ray with the full international version we Americans have been denied for the past 30 years. Apparently, the film editors edited the movie not for continuity, but for the desired length and it made for some very frustrating jump cuts.

    Don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but just bought a 4k Samsung 43" TV, upgrade from a 20-year old hulking beast. I could swear, the tv shows now look like they were all shot on videotape, some of the actors look like moving in slo-mo lol

    Do you have The Wrath of Khan, by any chance? Thinking about purchasing that, as it is my favorite TOS film with the original crew. Wondering how it appears on a Blu-Ray

    Wasn't much of a fan of Wrath of Khan movie so I don't plan on purchasing it. Something about Ricardo Montalban's character and costume and hair design just didn't set well with me to make me want to stay tuned. I didn't much care for his character in the TV series either, but then I didn't watch much of the TV series anyway.

    The only Star Trek movies I liked from when I first saw it in theaters and later purchased on BD was the first one with the story of the final ending journey of the Voyager space craft that I'ld entered a logo design contest as a high school student in the '70's before the actual Voyager originally launched and the Star Trek movie with the whales having the crew travel back in time to the '80's.

    I'ld say the two Star Trek movies I have on BD appear much better than I remember seeing at the theater. No complaints on the BD picture quality.

  9. I got these as a self Christmas present as nobody was going to get them for me:
    I love how the Game Of Thrones set looks. It's clearly an upscale from HD/2K DI but color and shadow detail is greatly improved. Regarding Top Gun, it looks grainy as most 1980's do but its Dolby Atmos soundtrack sounds outstanding.

    Recently I got Collateral on UHD just out of curiosity, I wanted to see if the HDR grade was any good. I also got the Lord of the Rings UHD box set for a similar reason, to see what the new grade would be like. I think both were fairly disappointing but Collateral more so than Lord of the Rings. At least The Lord of the Rings brought with it the theatrical versions of the movies that I didn't already own.
    I think Collateral to me felt like they went in and pulled back the highlights so that they didn't look clipped, so all the lights look a bit weird. I think it has the same amount of camera noise/grain as the blu-ray did it's just not as visible because the contrast is reduced as a result of pulling back the highlights. Maybe if I ever get a Dolby Vision capable TV I'll have to have another look at it to see how it looks on one of those.
