3) Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet - the original roadshow theatrical release of this Columbia/Castlerock mammoth effort, glittering with an all-star cast, was presented in breathtaking 70mm. The Blu-ray has been authored from a 35mm reduction print, and looks it. Piggy pink flesh tones, a lack of tonality in the entire color spectrum and a general loss of what should have been razor-sharp fine grain detail and, well - the Blu of Branagh's masterwork looks nothing like it did when it debuted. If ever there was a candidate for a 4K remaster and native 4K reissue, along with an upgrade to standard Blu - this movie is it!

Does Warner actually own the 1996 Hamlet movie? If so, I do hope it does get a remaster from them. Given that it was filmed in 70mm the blu-ray just doesn't look very impressive. It's a powerful adaptation of that rather overwhelming play.

Wasn't Kwai in Cinemascope? I never cease to be amazed how these films can be enhanced in 4k. I would think beyond bluray there would be no point.
yes very much so and Kwai looks amazing in 4K thanks to Grover Crisp's meticulous restoration of this Oscar winning epic
