    This, this, and this. No way around it, this being a digital-only release is BAD news for physical media buffs. But then we'll die and the milennials will be happy.

    Indeed it is very hard to believe that this would not also result in an improved Blu-ray version especially with the previous one not exactly being known as a filmlike presentation.

    This is available on the Kaleidescape store in 4K HDR. Extremely well done colors are wonderful as I had hoped. Technicolor registration errors are all but nonexistent , grain is unobtrusive. Surprising that it went from DVD to 4K HDR with no HD step between.

    Interesting is as the machines leave the gully the strings are now digitally removed !

    Yep, long discussion over here about the 4K of WotW on iTunes (previously had an old HD transfer: https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/war-of-the-worlds-1953-fully-restored-hd-version-with-extras-now-on-itunes.359207/

    If that one became available on kaleidascape you may be lucky to also get To Catch a Thief and The Court Jester that have also been done in 4k.

    I can hope. I have just been flabbergasted that this never came to Blu Ray. I'd love to see This Island Earth.

    I'm sorry -- without having to read through five thousand posts, I have seen in the most recent ones mention of something coming in HD only as digital...I hope this is not referring to LAWRENCE OF ARABIA...?

    There is no indication that we will not be finally getting a 4k disc release. Until then the Amazon version of Lawrence in 4k is supposedly very good and the best current version is probably the one you can get from Kaleidascape.

    I always thought of Paramount as a studio that is very bad with catalog titles, but they seem to improve. This Island Earth is not very high on my list but as sci-fi it has a good chance of a release.

    We veered into talking about the 4K streaming-only restored War of the Worlds.
