    FWIW, I received my BR + Digital today from the Disney Movie Club. As you indicated, it is only DTS-MA, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Movies Anywhere code gave me HD video with Atmos Audio. I thought it was an error, but when I played a sample from my Amazon Fire Stick, my AVR (Anthem 720) does indicate Atmos.

    From what I read, Endgame is one of the first MA titles with Atmos.

    Just received a note from Amazon UK, unknown when the 3D version will be available.

    They do that sometimes, and then correct it when they have an actual date. Same deal with Captain Marvel, and those all arrived on time in the end.

    Going back to the original topic at hand, mostly the idiot at Forbes who wrote the article that prompted this thread:

    He sure likes to pick on Disney for not using DV or HDR10+. But why isn't he picking on Sony or Warner? Both are not consistent with using DV (although Warner uses DV more often lately than not) on their 4K UHD Blu-ray releases.

    I purchased the UHD mainly to "future-proof" my ownership of this particular title but I would've been totally content with the Blu-ray edition as I am with UHDs of most movies not shot on actual film. Many of the UHDs I own tend to freeze in spots (Warner titles are especially problematic for me) and I've read that this occurs on this title - something which is obviously highly frustrating. Why is this issue so common on this format?

    It could be your player. I have played literally DOZENS of 4K UHD discs and very rarely have hiccups of any kind.

    I just picked up my “limited edition” Best Buy exclusive Steelbook from among an overflowing throng (gaggle? swarm? murder?) of in-store copies that could probably be used to shingle a small house. And the staff was at post-Snap levels, just one dude. All other staff either dusted or outright hiding. Good thing I’m so patient.

    My new irritation is that Target didn't allow order online for in-store pickup of this title. Fortunately, the East Greenbush store had plenty of copies of the retailer exclusive UHD release.

    Here's what the Target exclusive looks like, for anybody that's interested:
    786936864427.
    endgame-spread-1. endgame-spread-2.
    endgame-spread-3.
    endgame-spread-4.

    The Movies Anywhere site appears to be down, so I can't redeem my digital copy. Frustrating, given that there are digital exclusive extras.

    The book is very nice.

    Tino, where did you order from?

    I just recently looked at ordering the 3D from amazon UK but I saw a statement that they could not ship to the US.

    I had a number of items on pre-order from Amazon.uk, when the “can’t ship to the US” thingy came up last time. I went to the customer service chat area and was assured that the item would ship to Buffalo, (and it was). The next day I noticed that the “can’t ship ...”s were taken off my orders. I have no explanation for this. I do notice that anything I order has been shipped. Sometimes it takes weeks, sometimes right away.

    Does anyone notice a playback glitch around the 2m30s mark of the UHD disc? I am running it in the Panasonic DMP-UB900 player. The scene is at the transition of the introduction after the Hawkeye family scene to the Tony Stark tabletop football scene. I am looking for another player to try this but I thought I check here first.

    There was a time earlier in the year that AmazonUk had a glitch and all preorders were labelled that way, but it went through the order process without a problem and all those delivered without a problem.

    If you had a 3rd party selected that message sometimes comes up at the address screen and it will not let you past until you delete. Very rarely I've had that pop up with an older title with Amazon the selected seller and it blocks at the address screen. usually a week or two later it goes back to normal.

    For now I cna add Endgame 3D and go through to the last checkout screen without an issue so you may want to try again

    Watched it last night and really enjoyed it. Infinity War, which is heavy on spectacle, seems to play better on the big screen. Endgame, which is more focused on character work until the final battle, seems to play better at home. Certainly the pacing quirks didn't stand out as much to me.

    As is normal practice for Disney, all of the extras are on the Blu-rays. Only made it through the Stan Lee featurette so far, which has a lot of behind the scenes footage from his various MCU cameos going to back when he played Hugh Hefner in the first Iron Man.

    I didn't notice anything.

    Looked fine on my LG OLED. Watched in the afternoon with ambient light, too.
