Which 4k blu ray has the best COLORS?

Which 4k blu ray makes the best use of your tv's WCG and has popping colors? I am trying to find this, reading the reviews i see that (full or partly) CGI based movies do better on the color front, like The Lego Movie 2014, Valerian and the city of thousand planets.
What recommendations do you have for 4k blu rays that have reference colors?

i dont think so, i like the contrast punch that PEII throws especially in close up shots but the colors dont really pop as much, they still look good but there's better on 4k blu ray.

Surprised nobody mentioned it but, Lego Batman was mastered for rec2020 for theaters. Nobody has ever shown whether that all got transferred to disc or not but it has killer colors on 4k disc. Lego Ninjago is very similar too and I think more colorful.

Different movies, lego batman has ALOT of color against mostly dark backgrounds. Lego ninjago has ALOT of color against mostly bright backgrounds. As good as the lego movie looks I personally don't think it looks as good as the other 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 and The Lego Batman Movie are by far the most colorful 4K discs I own.

The best colour I have seen from a 4k Blu-ray was The Fifth Element.

The best single HDR moment though was God of War(early in the game after hunting). The colours and images I saw in those brief minutes blew me away.

Blade Runner 2049 has without a doubt the best color I've seen in HDR, although I watched it in DV on VUDU, not on Blu-ray, but it's likely even better on the Blu-ray.

Living Room: Sony XBR65X930D, Sony HT-Z9F, Philips BDP7501
Bedroom: LG OLED55C6P, Denon AVR-X1300W (5.1.2), PS4 Pro, Sony UBP-X700, Chromecast Ultra

Thanks this is a helpful topic. I look forward to getting Planet Earth II.

BTW: Several of the other titles also have very good to outstanding 3D versions which I prefer when forced to choose. Especially Guardians 2: The Baby Groot dance while the guardians battle opening scene has gags and effects that are missed in 2D (I've seen it both in 4K and 3D).

More to the point of the the OP: I'm enjoying the color revealed in going through Season 1 of Game of Thrones in 4k with DV. Especially the forest and other nature settings, including snow.

Planet Earth II. It is the only "real" footage that is outside DCI-P3 gamut.
