So, you think people on home theater forum excited for movies that will be an upgrade in overall quality are sheep? Interesting angle.

Would you be pleased if all classic films are non existent on the 4K format from now on?

Does anyone remember the early days of Blu-ray and HD-DVD where there were guys on boards like this saying that high definition was a fad/wouldn't last/no one cared? It was obvious then that they were basically mad and scared because they felt that their DVDs would be obsolete (as if they couldn't still watch them even if there is a better release) and that they were going to be "forced" into buying everything on another format so their reaction was to just kept knocking the new format as if that would make the inevitable future format go away. Anyway, I'm having a feeling of deja vu.

Universal has re-released their Monster collection how many times now though. It doesn’t take rocket science to know when something is cash grab or not, especially with cash cow titles such as these are.
Oo, I can't agree there. Universal did a truly amazing job with these films, so I think they've earned the right to release them as many times as they like. I'm very happy with my Legacy sets, but might have been tempted to double dip if Universal had released the big set in the UK (but they haven't...yet)...oh, & sets with that fantastic VHS cover art, I think I'd have to have those :)

Thank you, Universal. They upgraded my iTunes version automatically to 4k. Of course it looks stunning. I will support them putting out old classic black and white on 4k. Why wouldn't I if I love classic films and their preservation?

I just hope they don't double-dip us with these four titles.
I seriously doubt they won't -Ironically unless this one doesn't sell because many of felt um bolted after the individual sets came out. Then the the entire blu-ray collection that basically streeted for about the same as the original set ...

It's called "show business" for a reason.

Part of me thinks 4K is a bit excessive for these films, especially since all except The Wolf Man were apparently restored/remastered in 4K for the original Blu-rays. However, when I bought the Hitchcock 4-film set mainly for Vertigo and Psycho... I was surprised to see Rear Window amaze me as much as Vertigo with the bump in visual quality. Granted these are in B&W, but the few monochrome titles available like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Dr. Strangelove really do have a "spark" to the image. Always up for more nitrate-era stuff, especially with us also getting Citizen Kane and The Red Shoes from Criterion.

I see the picture way at the top of the thread where the title is shows a scene with the Wolf Man. That is from "Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man". Makes me think that if Universal sells enough of these first 4K sets, that title and others will follow. Wouldn't you love it if the deleted scenes from that movie were located. Hearing Bela Lugosi talk as the monster(Ygorstein) would be something!

Not to burst your bubble -but those pictures are NOT provided by Universal - I believe that 3rd party is involved, and we are lucky to get the proper version of a similarly titled film or remake. :cool: ...

Don't get me started about us posting the wrong pictures with these type of threads.:rolleyes: It's been a forum embarrassment for much too long and often with various film titles.:blush:

As much as I'd love for them to be located, I also weirdly enjoy that those scenes will likely always remain mysterious and out of reach to me. It's like some piece of the movie that you will always wonder about.

Yes. I know Universal didn't provide them. My point is that after seeing that picture maybe that title might be included later on a different set in 4K.
