    Actually this is more of a gallant attempt on my part to create a Pre-2000 UHD listing thread (a la Brandon Conway's brilliant thread) but I won't have all the time in the world to maintain this though I will do my best. So any help here is appreciated. If you know of a film title coming out on UHD Blu-ray that isn't listed here, feel free to list it. Keep in mind the following rules:

    1. Any listing must be "a confirmed sighting" (Father Goose lingo there).
    2. List the year the film came out in parenthesis.
    3. List only date (or approximate date) of release if known & confirmed (Amazon listings sometimes only list the DVD or Blu release date).
    4. No title discussions, other than a brief 1-sentence pertinent note.
    5. Title must have been released theatrically on or before 31 December 1999.

    Oh and I did consult with Brandon Conway on this. He's quite OK with this thread and even might pitch in a little but he does not have the time to maintain this like he does with the Pre-90s on Blu thread. So I'm sticking my neck out on this one somewhat.

    And now on with the thread:

    Grease (1978) available on 4K Blu as of 24 April 2018.
    Apollo 13 (1994) available on 4K Blu.
    Blade Runner (1982), The Final Cut available on 4K Blu.
    Terminator 2, Judgement Day (1991) available on 4K Blu-International.

    It would be nice if these could be listed by decade - I am not particularly fond of the 80s and 90s and mostly interested in the 50s and 60s.

    Not that most of the major studios seem to be willing to give us any content from that period except for Sony with The Bridge on the River Kwai but maybe at some point this year we will see the number of releases double to two ...

    Indeed. It also has an uptick in detail and no revisionist grading or excessive grain reduction. I would hope that we will see more releases like this one in the future.

    For people who are unsure in which way UHD releases differ from normal Blu-ray releases I suggest to have a look at caps-a-holic. It put me off a rather substantial number of UHD releases that changed the look and texture of a movie to a degree that is not consistent with respecting ists non-HDR origins. I happen to think that this is wrong way to go. It also shows that a studio like Sony has released some exceptionally well made examples of older catalog titles on UHD Blu-ray - if UHD is done like that count me in.

    Notes:
    - I'm aware that the first MI movie is already listed in this thread. But I wanted to keep the series together in the listing.
    - Also aware of the pending theatrical release of a new MI series film, Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) coming to theaters in July 2018. However I do not have any confirmation of a 4K release as of yet.
    - All 5 Movies will be available in a 5 Movie compendium. See RAH’s AFWA thread on the 4K release of the MI series.

An ex-Green Beret haunted by memories of Vietnam, he was once the perfect killing machine. Now he's searching for peace, but finds instead an over-zealous, small-town sheriff who's spoiling for a fight. All hell breaks loose when an unjustly imprisoned Rambo escapes and becomes the target of a massive manhunt. Now he must use all his cunning, combat skills and weapons training to stay alive and outwit his pursuers. Co-starring Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna, First Blood is an explosive action-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, powerful frame.

Superstar Sylvester Stallone is John Rambo, the ultimate action hero, in this explosive Oscar-nominated sequel to First Blood that boasts a riveting screenplay by Sylvester Stallone and James Cameron (Titanic). Although the Vietnam War is officially over, Rambo remains the perfect fighting machine. But his survival skills are tested with a vengeance on a top-secret mission that takes him back to the jungles of Vietnam in search of American POWs. For when Rambo is double-crossed, this "expendable" hero, armed with just a bow, arrows and knife, must defeat savage enemies equipped with deadly firepower.

Sam Trautman (Richard Crenna) shows up to ask for his help on a top-secret mission in Afghanistan. A war-weary Rambo declines, but when Trautman is captured, Rambo erupts into a one-man firestorm to rescue his former commanding officer and decimate the enemy.
