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

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.

CLEOPATRA---SOUND OF MUSIC---MY FAIR LADY---PATTON---WEST SIDE STORY---WIND AND THE LION---DOCTOR DOLITTLE --HELLO DOLLY--KINGDOM OF HEAVEN---LAWRENCE OF ARABIA----THELMA AND LOUISE--.SPARTACUS.---SOUTH PACIFIC Since Disney owns most of these films I'm a bit worried.

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.
