I haven't seen the new Blade Runner yet, so i can't comment.  In fact i have 12 4k UHD movies here I haven't watched yet.

Logan Lucky
Sully
Life
Passengers
Allied
Lucy
The Revenant
The Martian
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
The Fate of the Furious

Those all look excellent, so it's hard to boil down to ten, because there is also -

Baby Driver
Hacksaw Ridge
Valerian
Kingsman:The Golden Circle
Logan
Get Out

I'd add The Great Wall to the list of great eye candy.  The movie itself wasn't great, but the picture popped!

If I see any part of that film again,  I might remove it from the player and smash it to bits.  :-X

I added 'The Shallows' to my list.  This is pure eye candy again, not the greatest movie but not bad either, the PQ is awesome.  I recommend it for your collection if you can get it at a lower price point.

I stopped buying UHD movies, after a lot of testing i came to the conclution that i prefer the normal blu ray masterings. Much more comfortable watching, and more realistic.
The UHD titles seems to wow to me, artificial overly enhanced wich makes it very hard to watch, specially the HDR anoys me, and converting to SDR is a mess.

What 4K projector are you watching them on ? I disagree. But you need the right setup, and lots of lumens.

I never found a 4K projector i liked, so im testing on the LG oled C7, plenty bright, and thats exactely the problem, my eyes can simply not adapt to that light in a dark room.

For daylight inviroment no problem, but for a nice cinematic experience im drawn out of the movie by the eye strain, with the over contrasty artificial look, and i spend a lot of time calibrating and testing different settings, its just so much simpler and more enjoyable to pop in the HD Blu Ray disc, and play it on a fully compatable display who will need no convertion or other funky tweaking to a format no display is capable of displaying acording to the standard nobody really know how will be next week.
