    Well, with the caveat that my current setup doesn't support 4K. If, or more likely, when I do upgrade it would be nice to have these titles ready for me.

    The English Patient
    Chariots of Fire
    The Big Country
    Raging Bull
    The Deer Hunter
    Days of Heaven
    Black Narcissus
    Hud
    A Clockwork Orange
    In the Mood for Love


    - Walter.

    Nice to see lots of large format titles in this thread that should really shine in 4k.
    It is a shame that so many of them do not even have a good Blu-ray.
    The Deer Hunter is already out in 4k UHD so you got one more wish ;)

    Lawrence, this year. Dolly! next year. The Sound of Music, the year after that, and then My Fair Lady, Gone With the Wind, Driving Miss Daisy, The Great Escape, The Guns of Navarone, and, finally, The Godfather and original Star Wars trilogies.

    Looks like the UK Blu-ray of El Cid - a bit too reddish if you ask me but other than that not too bad for an upconverted DVD.
