Don't forget DTS:X MSTR if your AVR supports it.  Those new speakers can be used for DTS:X as well.   The Harry Potter UHD discs have really good mixes.   Atomic Blonde as well.
Yes I am really hoping that the Nad 777v3 will come out with a firmware update to support the DTS:X format.
I do have Battleship in DTS:X. Reviews are poor but I think it is a entertaining movie without having to think too hard, which for me is a plus :)

DTS does sound great. Atomic blonde has a dynamite sound track ( I like the movie a lot too ) !!

Late to the 4K party, so virtually all of my shiny's so far are Blu-Ray, but I previously bought 4 Blu-Rays that included 4K discs in the package, so those will be first up:  Battleship, Bladerunner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy 2,  and Passengers.  Happy to see that two of them are on Craig's short list.   👍

Is 4K movie streaming a decent approximation of the disc experience, and are any of the 4K streaming services clearly better than others?

I really like all three of those. Haven't seen Battleship.  Can't say regarding streaming.

My latest 4K Blu-rays are " A Simple Favor " - great movie. I'm watching it again with friends tomorrow. And " Bad Times At The El Royale " - watched that last night. That  is one wild ass film. I liked it. Also a great transfer,and great sound track !

I rented the A Simple Favor UHD disc as I wasn't expecting much but it is a really good film.   I will look to purchase it when I see it on sale.

i just picked that one up and will watch it soon. i picked up like 10 4k movies yesterday at best buy have a bunch on sale for 15$ some newer some a  lil older.
i actually finally just watched 4k uhd suicide squad with the wife last night. ive had it for like a year and finally watched it :-X .. even though got not great reviews i enjoyed it alot i wish watched it sooner. It was very sharp and had a really great soundtrack and kept my 2 monolith subs very busy most of the movie. i hope they end up coming out with harly quinn movie i thought her charactar was the best by far. i like jared leto but did not like jared leto as joker though wasnt feeling it.

I don't know if it's been mentioned in this thread already, but I just watched Bohemian Rhapsody for the first time, and it was just incredible!  The music was spectacular, totally immersive, crystal clear, room-thumping bass, and was as close to being present in a concert environment as I've experienced. I thought the movie itself was also tremendous - deeply moving. This is the type of movie that we create our Home Theaters to experience!
