    That article says 24 “rare” films.

    Not sure what definition of rare they are using.

    To me, “rare” is something that can neither be rented or purchased digitally, nor can be seen on a subscription streaming service, nor is available on physical media anywhere in the world.

    Something that I haven’t seen before but that can be found on iTunes, I wouldn’t call rare.

    But that’s just me and I’m a curmudgeon before my time.

    Most of these titles were not available to rent or purchase digitally before this week...

    If they’re newly available for purchase but weren’t available last week, I’d call that rare.

    I just wouldn’t call, say, Mean Streets rare just because it’s not widely promoted in 2019. But there are people who would.

    Josh,

    I bought 12 of those titles and only two has been available on disc and just about all of them showed up for the first time on iTunes last week. I had to create profiles for those 10 titles on DVD Profiler.

    Those on disc, are the following which I do have on disc, thus, I didn't buy them digitally except for a few that I only owned digitally too because they're among my favorite films. Of course, knowing my affinity for a certain actor, you know which titles I own on both, digitally and disc.:)

    City that Never Sleeps
    Driftwood
    I, Jane Doe
    Hell's Half Acre
    Johnny Guitar
    Angel and the Badman
    Moonrise
    The Quiet Man
    The Red Pony
    Three Faces West
    Wake of the Red Witch
    Trigger, Jr.

    I know you mentioned you don't buy discs any longer, but for me, I have not bought this 4K/DV digital because I'm looking to buy the 4K/UHD disc in November during Black Friday sales. I've read somewhere on this forum that the disc looks better than the stream.

    I’m getting the iTunes.
    I just don’t have room for discs anymore unless it’s something like A Spider-Man movie.

    I can understand that situation. I just took a look at my disc library and the space I have left to store them in and I might be change my mind on buying the disc.

    Does anybody here own the 4K iTunes movie of Big? I see that the extended cut is included as an iTunes extra. But what I'd like to know is if the extended cut is also in 4K. I would only be interested in picking it up if it is. Otherwise I'll just stick with the Blu-ray.

    I didn't realize that the two versions of "Big" were that different with 26 more minutes. I need to watch that extended version again because I couldn't remember the differences.

    Thanks Tino. Since the long version is the one I like then there’s no sense for me to waste five bucks for a 4K upgrade. :(

    Also, it's in 4K, but no HDR.

    Lionsgate has messed with redeeming John Wick Chapter 3 by changing the process forcing you to use their freaking Lionsgate VIP app. These companies always messing with their consumers as I really didn't want another app on my mobile devices. Anyhow, I downloaded the mobile device app and it easily redeemed my digital code to 4K/DV/DA.

    You can go to www.movieredeem.com and enter the code manually. That’s what I did.
