4K Blu-ray deals & discussion thread


1 (100%)
A few people have mentioned that we should start a 4k thread. Hopefully if this is popular enough that a mod will make it permanent. To start off so far I've wathced Pineapple Express, Chappie, and Enders Game in 4k. I thought Pineapple and chapple looked great, they were crisp and the colors were fantastic. Enders looked better than the 1080p blu but wasn't as impressive. 

I know best buy is going to have $17.99 4k movies on black friday, I'm hoping for some $15 one though.

What's everybody scooping up this year?
With the floodgates open and most movies about $10 or less, I'm having a hard time committing to anything since at this point they'd all be 'upgrades' to my existing library. TBH now I'm jaded and waiting for them to be $4-5 like regular BD's are now. Can't really justify just paying $10 for a cleaner transfer. I did buy a couple movies I was missing though, like 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood steels but that was weeks ago at the same prices heh.

I only bought a few movies this year, and some were on sale for weeks now.

- A Quiet Place 4K Steelbook
- Requiem For A Dream 4K

- Casino 4K

- John Wick 3 4K

Everything else is too expensive, I own, or have no interest in.

I bought a lot of Criterion's this year from B&N though. Normally I don't have the money for those because they are still expensive at 1/2 off.

- Bottle Rocket
- Rushmore
- Royal Tenenbaums
- Pans Labyrinth
- Che

- Punch Drunk Love

- Ghost World
- Watership Down
- Mulholland Dr
- Parasite

- Do The Right Thing

This may be the worst black friday ever but I still bought a few. 

Terminator Dark Fate

The Gentlemen

Birds of Prey


Also bought some 3d movies but that's for another forum 

I got. . .

Birds of Prey 4k $8 (blind buy; regret this one even at $8 lol)

1917 Steel 4k $15

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Steel $15

How to Train Your Dragon 3 Steel 4k $8

Back to the Future Collection 4k $10 (older deal from October but still checks out)

and that's it.

I picked up:

-District 9



-War of the Worlds



-Pan's Labyrinth

-Days of Thunder

All 4K, all for 7.99-9.99 a piece. I also grabbed:

-Celebrating Mickey


-Marriage Story
-Before Trilogy
-Eastern Promises
-American Crime Story: People vs OJ Simpson

on regular Blu-ray. Pretty much everything else that was on sale movie-wise, I already own.

Bought 2 of the Chernobyl steelbook with in-store pickup at Best Buy. First one had rattling noises, the disc tray pins were busted. The second one, after removing the plastic wrap, refused to close properly. The 3rd and final one in store was blemished a bit on the corners, but had no internal damage and closed. I'll be happy with minor blemish in corner for a perfect book otherwise.

Anyone else extremely underwhelmed by the presentation of these $90 base 4k LotR/Hobbit sets? If it weren't for the fact I only paid $60 a set, I'd probably be returning them. I still might seeing as they'll probably hit $40 or less by next BF.

I am not impressed with the cardboard slip. Very cheap and paper thin with slightly thick stock on front and back but otherwise one tear will end it all. 

The Indiana Jones 4K set is eligible for Target's B2G1 sale. Got that with the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit 4K sets, worked out to $62 each with tax.

Nice to know, will remember for the next round. Will make buying some game easier to stomach.
I may pay more attention this year as prices have finally become reasonable. The main interest being that streaming is starting to show signs of limitations in that buffering issues are way more common. I haven't been able to successfully watch anything on Vudu without interruption at least once per movie, and HBO Max has been slightly spotty at times. Could be ISP issues, but IDGAF as the problem with streaming is that it's not a physical disc you can rely on. More and more if I'm watching a movie, I just reach for the damn disc so I don't have to deal with it.

Best Buy right now has the 4K Steelbook of Green Knight for $10. I'm assuming it's a price error. I didn't see any others priced so low but i'm drunk and didn't look too hard. But Green Knight is one of my favorite movies of the last 5 years or so so i wanted to give a shout out. *edit* I'm too drunk to make a link. Any mod feel free to attack it need be.

Gruv.com has a Buy 3 for $30 deal, plus bonus code GIVETHANKS20 takes $6 off. Shipping is FREE.

Not a huge selection, but some quality movies in the mix.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Movies - Best Buy

One more thing of note, if you pick up Interstellar you get a free 30-day subscription to Showtime.  Not sure if there are others in this list that include this bonus.

Best Buy also has the 4k versions of the Spiderman Trilogy and Amazing Spiderman 1 & 2 for $25 and $15 respectively. Absolute steals at that price.

I'm also kind of tempted on the Star Trek Kelvin 4k trilogy for $25 as well but haven't pulled the trigger on those.

I may pick up No Time to Die

Been keeping an eye on Love and Monsters.  I know the 4K is kind of on sale right now at $15.99 but thought it might go lower on black Friday

I had no idea that they finally released a 4K version of live die repeat Edge of tomorrow. Best Buy has it for only $10. I am all over that!
I got an email from VUDU this week giving me a free 4k upgrade for a couple of movies (Hook, Anatomy of a Murder, and Game Night).  This seems like a "just because" type of promotion and these are not showing up as 4k in Movies Anywhere.  Anyone else ever have this happen?  I'm 90% sure I did not buy or redeem any of these on VUDU so it seems a bit odd, but I'll take it

I just took a look at my email & got the same. Except my movies where Superman/Batman: Apocalypse & Public Enemies, Batman Year One & The Last Dragon. All of them save the Batman (which was a code I believe) were bought on vudu if my memory serves me correctly.

Looks like Best Buy is running their 4K Black Friday sale one last time.

The under $10 list is small but mighty.  

  • Top Gun Maverick
  • Black Adam
  • Enter the Dragon
  • Evil Dead Rise
  • Creed III
  • National Lampoon's Vacation (1983)
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • Heat
  • Pulp Fiction
  • Transformers Rise of the Beasts
  • Color of Space

Some of these are as low as $7.99.  To me, Enter the Dragon, Heat and Vacation are must gets (Already have Pulp Fiction and Shawshank).

I'm sure there are other 4K deals in the higher price ranges as well as some Blu-ray.  You might be thinking to wait until they have a clearance sale in the spring, but something tells me they will not be ordering any more movies towards the end of the holidays.  If you really want something this might be your chance.

4K UHD Movie & TV Shows - Best Buy

The bi-annual Barnes & Noble Criterion 50% off sale is currently ongoing and will continue until 12/4/23.  This is for those that like higher end boutique media at a discount (who doesn't?).

For those unaware, Barnes & Noble holds these sales twice a year, July and November, where all Criterion Collection movies are 50% off their normally exorbitant price.  A great time to pick up some high-end movies for what most sell at for regular price.

This applies to in-store and online.

The Criterion Collection of Blu-rays and DVDs | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com)

BB ditched their own sale FYI. Apparently very common for them to set a date then not deliver until later in the week for this. Whatever they do, I'm PM'ing at Target for Red Card.

Yeah, that sale was only three days (ended Sunday).  Pretty weak IMO.  Hopefully there will be another sale close to black Friday with more of a selection.  

Currently you can still get Heat and Ad Astra 4K for $7.99 and The Color of Space 4K for $9.99.  Heat is underrated IMO.  Pretty much everything else is back up to the $25-$35 range.

Nice, I just purchased Aliens and Alien 3 from the apple store during Halloween, so free 4k upgrade incoming!

Amazon has about 160 4k digital titles, about 50/50 MA for $5 each. Big FIsh caught my eye as an all-time low finally so I bit. Few others I only have in HD I was considering upgrading but man, it should be free everywhere like how apple does it.

B2G1 free on movies at Target started this morning.  If you can find a store that still carries many.  YMMV the occasional one has put out their BF shipper, and those are now discounted too.


Amazon has priced matched the BOGO sale and has some offerings of their own.  some have coupons too.

Maybe cyber monday? Definitely odd.
Not odd. B&M retailers are mostly dropping or significantly scaling back blurays and dvds because ... well, average consumers aren't buying them.

The market is still healthy - it's just more online through places like gruv and Kino Lorber. It's also becoming more collector/cinephile driven, with folks more willing to pay a bit more for nicher titles and better service (i.e., packaging).
As promised, my BB cleared out the movie section. It was a large area relative to other BB stores. Now it's rows and rows of empty shelves with the item off barcode. :(
Bestbuy is gone! I picked so many 4k steelbook for $10. Walmart steelbook exclusive with pretty MSRP $39.99 plus taxes. Hopefully, Amazon have good 4k movies on sale Black Friday in July and BF. Still hope Bestbuy still carry 4K movies buy the end of July :)
Went into a Walmart to see how many movies they had on the shelves. Must've been 100 DVDs, 50 Blus, and 5 4k discs. What a world!
