What looks good is HDR and REC2020 (even it if only DCI at the moment).
When 4K was announced, the same reactions were all over the forums: you won't see any difference, there is no content, blah blah blah.
And yet, HEVC, HDR and marginally in comparison 4K has made a huge difference, even with movies with only 2K digital intermediates.
Same happened for HD by the way, remember FOX "480p is enough"?
Now, if you compare AVC HD to MPEG2 SD, you want to puke.
We don't know what 8K has in store, in addition to the resolution, we don't know how fast content will come, and we don't know how 4K content will look on 8K media or streamed. Already, there is a codec twice as good as HEVC.
I know that 2K content looks a lot better in UHD HDR REC2020, so I won't close my mind. Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.
