This must be frustrating for all the "browncoats" out there.
Surprised Whedon would allow this to happen...

Once upon a time, Criterion was all about the best available medium- thatís why they issued laserdiscs but no VHS tapes.

Canít say what the best or worst UHD Iíve seen so far is, still need to watch Close Encounters which I have high expectations for.

Haven't seen it in a while but I don't remember being particularly disappointed in it. I do remember the audio was a huge improvement over the HD DVD I upgraded from. I'll have to check it out again and look closer.

Criterion did issue The Third Man, The Lady Vanishes, and The 39 Steps on VHS, with Criterion branding. Generally, theyíd be released through Embassy, Home Vision Cinema, or Janus directly, sometimes still with a Criterion card at the start of the film or Criterion extras (such as Home Visionís Throne of Blood and Grand Illusion).

There are MANY things I like about the 4K release of the Harry Potter Movies, but there is one thing I dislike.

The scrubbing of some of the grain also seemed to have remove some details from the kid's faces...the face look took clean and porcelain.

Swapped back and force on a few of the movie, and the blu-ray is really blurry at times and the 4k does blow the BR our of the water.

I do have Aquaman and 2001 on 4K and the video quality is truly breathtaking.
Haven't seen the others on UHD.
