"Giant" Digital copy from iTune Store

Hope I am not posting this in the wrong spot . I just bought the movie " Giant" with Rock Hudson & Liz Taylor from iTune store but the pic looks horrible , it say the movie is in HD & widescreen but I am not too happy the way it looks . Anyone else seen this movie in blu ray HD ?..

LG OLED C8 65 2018 BR . HT: JVC RS2000, S Studio Tek 130 1.3 Gain screen, Apple TV4k, Def Tech 9080/C 9080/9040 Dolby Atmos Speakers, Denon X6500H , Panasonic UB820 and a nagging wife.

On rare occasions I've had what I consider a 'bad' streaming version of a film. I don't own the Giant Blu-ray but when it was released in 2013 it got decent ratings for picture and sound.

Edit: Another review.

I can confirm what you saw...it is a mediocre copy of the film. Watched it on iTunes with the Apple TV 4K. On VUDU with the Roku Premiere+. On Amazon Video with the Fire TV 4K Stick. All of these streaming companies have the same copy. The Blu-ray is supposedly soft but because of the higher resolution may be slightly better looking but I doubt it's worth the investment. The initial reviews I sent pretty much outline the history of this film and transfer.
