Love to hear your verdict when you get round to giving the disc a spin. I had it on an awful cheapo UK dvd.

Luckily for me there are plenty of films released on blu only to be going on with.

I really don't need to upgrade that many dvd's i don't think. I was going to upgrade The Devil's Nightmare as my Redemption dvd is a bit crap but it's out of stock via Arrow's store.

2 Headed Shark Attack and an episode of The Professionals both looked really good upscaled on the BD player so whilst i still have a tiny screen (42") i don't need to upgrade things.

The way she goes Dem will be posting a simular post pretty soon with Blu Rays

The remaster is stunning so it's worth it!
I plan to get the 4k at some point but I only recently watched it so it'd just go into the collection unwatched if I bought it now.

I'm the same as I would like the 4K Ultra HD but I haven't watched the 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray since 2013! It's long overdue a rewatch because it's tough to warrant spending money on the 4K release of a film I have, at least recently, watched so infrequently.

I rented the 4k stream from iTunes, and not to rock the boat, the HDR is so good, all those reds and golds from Ming's Palace really pop off the screen, and if it looked that good on a stream I can't imagine how nice the actual full bitrate disc looks.
