What one movie would you most like to see in 4k/UHD?

The movie I would most like to see in 4k is The Last of Mohicans from 1992. I’ve shown this in my classes on American Art for almost 20 years now. A wonderful movie that’s also a moving emotional experience. I’d like to see this classic taken to the next level. What older (pre-2010) movie would you like to see in 4k?

  1. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland from 1972, of course!

    *clearing throat*

    The BAFTA AWARD WINNING Alice's Adventures….. 😀

    Would settle for restored blu ray with extended scenes, marketing materials…some of which I own…interviews with living cast members, including Fiona Fullerton who is alive and well and a very big friend of fans…

    /pimping my own favorite movie of all time

  2. My runner up would be Cleopatra. While I think most of us would agree that the Blu-ray is phenomenal, Mr. Harris only gave it 4/5 stars and said there was room for improvement (I believe it's an older scan, from 2005). Perhaps Fox would consider releasing a 4K UHD disc to capitalize on the two upcoming Cleopatra projects (one for TV, the other for the big screen directed by Denis Villeneuve) if those pan out. And hopefully before Disney acquires Fox, if that indeed happens.

    "Love With The Proper Stranger". It baffles me that a movie with Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen is ignored for so long. A proper restoration is way overdue.

    Love with the Proper Stanger just saw a Kino Lorber release. Not sure a UHD release is called for for it.

    My Top choice would be Ben-Hur (1959). Lots of other titles would be nice such as Gone With The Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, My Fair Lady, Around the World in 80 Days (1956). By the way is 30P in the UHD standard for ATWI80D and Oklahoma Todd-AO titles?

    Ah, thank you! I had no idea that a decent release had shown up, I'd given up on it ever happening. I'd still like to see a 4K release of it but finally having it in HD is a welcome change. This is one of the few romance/chick flick/rom-com type films that I truly like.

  5. Many of those mentioned were mediocre, even with Blu-ray, such as Forbidden Planet (love the movie). 4k wouldn't improve them much except to accentuate the grain.
    I'd love ALL 70mm movies to be transferred, first being Lawrence Of Arabia !!! Pretty please.

    I would love to have some large format production in 4k that I like very much but they do not even have a decent Blu-ray release or even none at all:

    Raintree County
    Around the World in 80 Days
    The Alamo
    Ryan's Daughter
    Zulu
    Mutiny on the Bounty
    Barabbas
    El Cid
    Fall of the Roman Empire
    The Greatest Story Ever Told

    All of these are stunning large format productions that should shine in the format and I cannot really decide which one I would like to be released the most, I always end up with two or three titles 🙂

    To date, Archive hasn't gone 4K – I would've been shocked to see an "A"-list title like "2001" "relegated" to Archive! 🙂

    I'd be more shocked if Warner didn't do something for that film's 50th anniversary. The idea of having that on a 4k UHD disc is starting weaken my resistance.

    I'm sure Digital Bits is right and there'll be a 4K for "2001"'s 50th…
