The Abyss..If only to have a copy that is not in 4x3 finally. All Star Trek movies, that means TOS, Next Gen, and the Kelvin timeline ones. All Marvel from Iron Man forward. All the Indiana Jones movies, from Raiders forward.
And of course Event Horizon. That's for starters...

Even a better 1080p master would go a long way on this one, honestly.

Remastering all the Stars Wars movies in 4K would be nice. And yes I include JarJar in that comment.

As previously mentioned The Abyss, True Lies, and Indiana Jones. I would add Pink Flyod The Wall, The Wraith, Club Dredd, and a few Cary Grant classics like North by Northwest, Father Goose, To Catch A Thief, Operation Petticoat, Touch of Mink, etc


Oh! Oh! Oh! Basic Instinct, Jade, Poison Ivy 2 & 3, Embrace of the Vampire because, well you know scenes.

I forgot about Basic Instinct that could benefit from a remaster as well, I'd take Basic Instinct 2 also. And we need a 4K UHD of Gravity too.

If most of the movies I watch only in 1080p is there any point of getting a 4k projector? Thanks.

Barring deteriorarion, virtually anything shot on celluloid can be transferred to 4K. I guess studios would have to determine if its worth $ their while for another remastering. But anything finished in 2K probably won't happen; fx and things would need to be re-rendered. Maybe crowdsourcing a title(s) could change their minds....

"I knew you'd say that"...*BLAM!*

Doctor Strange 2016, there was a rumored release date that wasn't to be, but I hope Marvel will get to it before the second film is released in a couple of years.
