The last 4 Harry Potter movies are up for pre-order in 4K, I presume they are withholding the earlier ones for a true restoration. Approximately $50 each though. Talk bout a gouge.

Highway robbery. I hope they are fantastic quality though so they can go through the sale cycle and I can pick them up at a decent price.

I'd be wary of the first few not looking as good on 4K as the latter films.  I know that was an issue with the Bourne Identity when it was put out on 4K:

The other ones aren't as bad as the first one:

http://www.blu-ray.c.../164767/#Review

http://www.blu-ray.c.../164764/#Review

http://www.blu-ray.c.../154620/#Review

 

All but the last one were filmed and finished in 2K, so it's an upscale to 4K.  Same scenario as we had with DVD titles moved to BluRay, such as anime titles.  The upscales can be crappy or they can be good, though not as good as native source material at or better than the disc resolution.

 

I'm finding it more and more that it's over the map on movies that are re-released on 4K differ in quality when they were sourced at 2K and upscaled versus native 4K.

I'm happy to stick with my Harry Potter blurays and just get Fantastic Beasts in 4K. Maybe in a decade there will be a cheap 4K box set. Blurays are more than fine for now.

B2G1 Free on movies, including 4K, at Target. Works on some 4K preorders like Harry Potter and Fast & Furious movies.

Thanks for posting the Target deal. I couldn't find enough 4K movies I wanted (those prices on Lucy and Pacific Rim are insane) but I did grab Deepwater Horizon and the blurays for Pinnochio and Dr. Strange for a decent price with this deal.

Yeah, the Target Buy 2 get 1 free basically amounts to a 33% off sale if you buy the same priced items.  Nice deal.

I went animated with three movies, Storks, Trolls and Ice Age 5.    Had to do Storks for shipping since my store couldn't find it, need to grab the other two on the way home.

I ended up getting Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk 4K/3D ($26.99) and The Arrival 4K ($24.99) and got the Mondo steelbook of Ghost in the Shell ($24.99) for free. 

 

And of course Target put Billy Lynn and The Arrival on backorder with an expected delivery date by March 20th!  Nice reminder of why I hate to order from Target.com sometimes.

Only thing to blame Target for is having the best sale for 4k movies then any other store or online site.

Best Buy has been pretty good about putting 4K movies on sale recently - a decent number have been put up for $20 or under over the last few weeks.

Except the LionsGate info is wrong, older titles are redeeming in UHD thru Flixster, but newer titles are not redeeming in UHD anywhere, so advised to hold on to code and wait for licensing to be approved thru Vudu.

nice, didnt know we have a uhd thread.

 

We got fast 6 and 7 pumping out next week. I'm a big fan of series so looking forward to see if how good the improvements will be.

Considering getting Hunger Games 1,2,3 for $34 or so. Do they come with UHD UV copies?

 

 

 

 

 

NO, not all of the Hunger Games digital copies redeem in UHD........ I believe the only one that redeems in UHD via Flixster is Catching Fire, the rest will redeem in HDX.

Bought my first 4k title. I only have a 4K pc monitor.
Suicide Squad.
The Best Buy ad said $14.99 but they had to override it.
Looks like they messed up in the ad.
Won't play Vudu 4K with my monitor. Oh well, I'll be ready when I get a 4K tv.

I sold the codes anyway so hope it worked out for them.

I bought Suicide Squad for $15 for in store pickup and went through at that price.

Bear in mind that Suicide Squad is one of the worst 4K transfers out there, so I'd recommend grabbing some other, better ones before you get your 4K TV. Bluray.com is a good place to look for reviews of the actual transfer quality of UHD movies.

I was dissapointed when i read the uhd reviews but i liked the movie so much i didnt really care. i bought on or around day one.

 

I didnt like that the extended scenes was only included in the regular bluray, which i have yet to watch.

Apparently Fast and Furious 6 4k has audio issues,. If you're thinking about buying it you may want to hold off until Universal responds.

I got it too. I have a samsung tv and it always flickers once like the input is momentarily lost from my sony receiver. Will have to play around to see what causes it. The 4k movies available from the promo are pretty meh for my tastes besides maybe magnificent 7. I got planet earth 2, the martian, and john wick so far. Only deadpool catches my eye at these prices as another to add to collection and not much in near future. Really hoping breaking bad gets a physical release.

Walmart has multipak 4K Blu-ray on sale this week...

 

Expendables 3 Pack - $22.96

Divergent 3 Pack - $22.96

Now You See Me 1 & 2 - $17.96

 

I also picked up a 3 Pack of Ender's Game, Gods of Egypt and The Last Witch Hunter in 4K for $22.96 - not a bad deal considering these average approximately $20 each. They do not have additional Blu-ray copies but do classify as Instawatch accessible.

The Martian Extended Edition 4K is below $14 at Amazon. It has been slowly dropping in price daily for a week.
