This is your opportunity to have your voice heard! Whereas other discussion forums have their reviewers determine the best and worst of the year, we are leaving it up to our members to cast their votes.

Please read the following carefully:

1. Nominate your two choices for the WORST 4K RELEASE OF 2023. This is based on overall visual/audio quality and/or restoration. The title must have been released on physical media in 2023. The top FIVE nominated titles go on to a final voting round.

2. Only one 2-choice nomination per member. You can repeat titles that others have nominated. As stated above, the top 5 nominated titles go on to the final voting round.

3. NO DISCUSSIONS in this thread, please. To make things easy on compiling your nominations, it is kindly asked you only post your two top choices.

4. Nominations will close and this thread will be locked on January 19, 2024. At that point, your choices will be compiled and the top nominations move on to the final voting round.

Note: Blu-ray was not included in these awards. Truth be, your nominations take a lot of work to compile and it was felt that since 4k is the best format on physical media, the awards should reflect such.​

It breaks my heart to say so, but...
American Graffiti.

It deserved so much better.

While otherwise stellar releases, they were both misleadingly (some might go so far as to say fraudulently) labeled as Ultimate Collector's Editions, without the studio bothering to mention to consumers that even more ultimate collector's editions were planned for release 6 months later. Most egregious double-dips of the year.

Edit: Also the 3-D versions were sold separately, making this a triple-dip for those who wanted everything.

I second these nominations, as the later-released "Collector's Editions" were much more inclusive and feature-packed than the previously released "Ultimate Collector's Editions" that in hindsight weren't all that ultimate.

I might be in the minority on the second one, but the lack of carrying over nearly all of the legacy special features made the decision to include it easy.

Avatar "Ultimate" Collector's Edition. (so glad I waited for the actual Ultimate Collector's Edition before taking the plunge. This did nothing to help Disney escape likely winning the Worst Studio prize this year)

I have no second choice, and in fact I feel about "American Graffiti" the same way as I felt about "Planes Trains and Automobiles"; I wish they were better but they'll do.
