Just rediscovered this forum!
I'm still very much in 1080p land, and haven't seen any UHD yet. So these are some of my favorite 2k Blu-rays for image quality. Also, there are still alot of movies I have not seen on Blu-ray or HD, including many of the recent super-hero movies.
A few more than three. Sorry about that.
RECENT - CAPTURED ON FILM:
Jurassic Park III (2001)
Lord of the Rings (2001-2003)
Quantum of Solace (2008)
This gets a little monochromatic in the 2nd half. But is otherwise quite good.
Snow White & the Huntsman (2012)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
Wrath of the Titans (2012)
RECENT - CAPTURED DIGITALLY:
Only watched this once so far, and fell asleep during alot of it. So I'm not sure I actually like the movie yet.
Alot of eye-candy though fwiw (from the few bits I saw while awake).
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
Color is sort of monochromatic, favoring blues and greens. But detail is very good.
Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (2016)
Very nice contrast, color, and detail for a digital feature. Reminds me of some older films.
CATALOG TITLES - CAPTURED ON FILM:
At the Earth's Core (1976)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
In glorious black & white.
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973)
Independence Day (1996)
This is almost in a class by itself for detail, except for some of the scenes involving pyrotechnics, which are a little soft looking.
The Nutty Professor (1963)
The World Is Not Enough (1999)
CATALOG TITLES - HAMMER HORROR:
Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)
Not perfect. But a fairly substantial upgrade from the letterboxed DVD. Sound is quite shrill unfortunately.
Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969)
The Kiss of the Vampire (1963)
This is on the brighter, contrastier side, but otherwise good.
Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970)
The Vampire Lovers (1970)
All the above should upscale quite well to 4k. I recently picked up a couple more Blu-rays used, which could also be potential candidates, including Justice League
. And will augment the above list as necessary.
