I have read two other reviews of this 4K upgrade, both of which give really lackluster marks. It's encouraging to hear something more positive.

Personally I think it's a significant, but subtle, upgrade over the Blu.

True, but to be honest I don't know how much computer animation that's 14 years old would benefit from a true 4K render. It looks REALLY great here IMO.

Yeah, I'm going to watch my 4K disc tomorrow because I plan on seeing the sequel tomorrow evening.

They couldn't do Coco in 4k and that was from last year!

No, there was talk about them converting it to 3-D like Ratatouille and releasing a 3-D Blu-ray, but nothing came of it.

Wow. When Pixar stops producing 3D for their theatrical releases, that really does put a large dent in the format. So far, Marvel and the Star Wars titles so far are still 3D theatrically and overseas on 3D Blu-ray.

Regarding those who have slagged the IQ of this 4k disk: I saw I1 on 4k last night. I disagree with those who have argued about the video quality entirely. Asking for it to have boosted colors in all scenes would have devastated the very particular 60s Bond palette they were going for. There ARE scenes where boosted colors and HDR are employed, particularly lava, explosions and sparks. It looked great -given- the very intentional look.

I think @Todd Erwin was right on in his write up!

I also thought it looked and sounded great.

And a much better film than Incredibles 2 (which was fun).

I watched about 30m the other night. Yes it’s not a huge difference in resolution. To be honest, HDR difference didn’t blow me away either (probably a testament to how good the original BD was). But what was improved? I noticed zero color banding in the 30m I did see. That made it worth the upgrade alone (assuming no banding appears in the rest of the movie).

Pixar does continue to produce 3D for theatrical - "Incredibles 2" is 3D.

The first film predates the modern-day 3D revival - it was an "after the fact" rejiggering of it that didn't see the light of day...
