Thanks for the three reviews!
I agree wholeheartedly with you on your placement of Arrival and The Great Wall, but I respectfully disagree with your 1.75 placement of Kong: Skull Island. Having said that, in fairness I did NOT see the 1080p version, but I would be very surprised if it was a whole tier apart from the 4K version (I gave the 4K version a .75 ranking in Tier 0). The "orange hues," though somewhat "distracting," had no effect on details or depth, so I decided not to penalize it at all for the color-grading. As far as the "grain" goes, IMHO it only served to "enhance details" and give it a beautiful "filmic-look," so there again there was no penalization factored into my final score.
