Yeah, exactly... if only there was a way to take Mark Wahlberg out of it...

Recommendation for first 4k Bluray

I have a Sony UBP-X700 on order, and wanted some recommendations on what should be my first UHD bluray. I'm more interested in the picture quality, not if the sound will bring back my virginity . My tv is HDR10 only. Thanks in advance.

Plz help choose 5 4k blu ray movies to buy on amazon

I have been out of groove on latest 4k blu ray releases and which are great ones, i have a collection until mid 2018 but beyond that i haven't followed the 4k blu ray releases. The last one i bought last year was the greatest showman and besides that i own blade runner 2049, valerian...., jumanji welcome to the jungle, pacific rim, guardians of galaxy vol. 2, planet earth II, john wick 2 and the revenant.

Im now looking to get 5 new 4k blu ray discs from amazon and i need recommendations. I want recommendations from the newer 4k blu ray releases, it doesnt matter if it's hdr10 or dolby vision, and the content itself doesnt matter much, the main requirement is it should have great looking hdr (i recently bought a sony oled).

Doing my research again on newer 4k blu ray releases and reading reviews on which are the great looking ones, on my consideration list are Aquaman, Mission Impossible Fallout, Hannibal, Shazam, Annihilation.

Can you give your own recommendations on what should i buy? They need to be 5 movies from the newer releases (not interested in documentaries), i can only budget out for 5 discs right now. Anything i should scratch off my consideration list above and get some other movie in its place?

Aquaman and MI fallout seem to get recommended by many people, so buying them, need three more recommendations. Are mortal engines and shazam great looking?

Agreed on 4K HDR, when I had my LG C9 55” watched it twice this was a visual color feast for the eyes.

It's not a movie, but if you want 10 one hour episodes of STR8 Eye Candy, check out Altered Carbon on Netflix !

Looks fantastic on my 65B7A and sounds great on my 7.1 sound system.

I think, therefore I am single.
