Blu rays that Were Upgraded Along with The 4K Editions (a list)

So, this thread is designed to list all Blu ray discs that come with 4K releases that were also upgraded for the release. This is supposed to be a helpful tool for movie collectors such as you or I.

Anyhoo, here are the ones I've found:

Star Trek: TOS movies (II-VI)
Unbreakable
The Back to the Future Trilogy
The Godfather Trilogy*


For me that's all the ones I've found so far. Feel free to add your discoveries!

*not always included with the 4K releases

A Christmas Story, yes, but Christmas Vacation is the same transfer as the second blu-ray release and not a remaster like the 4k (at least from what I read).

Adding:
Grease
Fright Night

That said, it's still a great upgrade from the first blu-ray release.

So...does anyone know if the new Original Star Wars Trilogy (episodes IV-V-VI) on 4K have corresponding Blu rays that have also been upgraded?

Also, how about the recent 4K release of Reservoir Dogs? Have they upgraded the Blu ray of that?

Yes, the Blu-ray that comes with Reservoir Dogs on UHD has also been remastered. Both discs look considerably better than the prior Lionsgate Blu-ray.

Thanks.

I'm guessing that the Trilogy has also undergone even more "changes" (digital butchery) in the 4K era. Did they switch out Sir Alec Guiness with Jar Jar? *shudders*

Yes, hence stvn1974's reference to "Maclunkey."

Miami connection put out by Vinegar Syndrome. Their bluray included is from their 4k remaster. I'm still keeping my drafthouse bluray as well as its like watching it on a scratched up 35mm print.

Question:

Are the supplemental Blu rays to Pulp Fiction and The Road Warrior given 4K transfers?
