HD Alert!

I wrote this piece at BY THE GODS!: Are you ready for 4k?

PEPLUM movies on regular HD are few and far in-between (for now) so good luck finding any PEPLUM production made in Europe on 4K. For those who don't know, 4K is the next level of HD, also called Ultra HD. Of course, Hollywood movies have already been released in 4K, such as THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956) starring Charlton Heston (above). The Before After above is sorta convincing (less blurry) but not by that much. Of all the scenes they could have chosen from that movie, they chose that one. I guess it's to show the contrast of the many colours.

I have a number of movies on 4k of which I also have the blu-ray. I don't think there is much difference, sometimes blu-ray is even better. The 4k image is too dark.

VHS,DVD,Blu-ray,and now 4K. I'm not buying into it. I've upgraded these movies too much already. Just another way to pick out pockets again.

Yes upgrading again seems like an exercise in wasted money but if some titles look great in 4K than maybe.

AP I know what you mean about darkness- The TEN COMMANDMENTS comparison is dark
