It wasn't like I was going to buy the movies yet again on Blu ray, especially when I saw the " Mastered In 4k ". This is like the old " Where's the Beef " Wendy's commercial. Where's the 4K ?

I agree.  Depending on the source, it's hard to know what improvement a 4K release will provide over simple upscaling.  Since both The Fifth Element and Leon were just re-released with Atmos encoding, is there anything worth doing a 4K re-master?

They were re-mastered in 4K, for that " Remastered in 4K " Blu Ray release. I'm guessing they both will look better, on the actual 4K UHD. Where is that ? I'll buy it now, if it is available. Sony moves so slow, i guess I'll put it on my list for next years Black Friday sales.  ???

The Fifth Element remastered in 4K is in my opinion a mess, enhancement that has addet edge ringing, and some scenes look so bad that the NTSC DVD would look better upscaled.. So it looks more like they are more focused on making something that looks different than better, hope they will not pass that on to the UHD edition.

True. Your current setup might look just as good upscaled through your AVR or Projector with out buying a replacement 4K disc, other than getting Atmos channels. Sad thing is some of the Manufacturers are resorting to putting the Atmos channels only on 4K discs.  :(

Yes, and frankly, they win.  That's one of the reasons I'm moving on to a 4K BR player.  Though I admit that, with an aging BR player and a 4K tv, that has been the intent.  But now it's NOW.

Come on studios - where are the new 4K Blu Rays ? The count of available or announced but not released yet has crept from 160 titles to a whopping 162 titles over the last 2 weeks !  >:(

I'm hoping for some good sales close to Christmas to pick up some current titles as I just started buying UHD BDs.

Finally - The 5th Element on 4K Blu Ray is coming !

" All right, let’s have more on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray from CES 2017, plus a bit of regular Blu-ray announcement news too...

First up, we have reliable word that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is listing Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element for release on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format on 7/11. That makes a ton of sense, because Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) arrives in theatres on 7/21 (from STX Entertainment). "

That's great!  But make sure it has Atmos.

I just bought the bluray with Atmos for all of $8 before the holiday.  Absolutely blew me away!  But I have yet to watch it on my OPPO.  Guess what's high in the priority list? 

Now we just need LOTR in UHD Atmos...  (well, maybe not "just"...)

Man!  that whole idea just sends shivers down my spine!

I'd be just as happy if it has DTS : X !

And perhaps this signals that the new Alien : Covenant film will be released on 4K too - I'm looking forward to this movie !
