    I hope Warner upgrades the regular BD at the same time, like they did for 2001.

    I'm sure they will. 'The Shining' is by far the best Stanley Kubrick film in my opinion. This may be the 4K disc to accelerate my purchase of a 4K projector.

    While Warners did have the new upgraded master on the Blu-Ray included with the 4K 2001 & THE MATRIX, unfortunately they did not wIth BLADE RUNNER, THE MATRIX RELOADED and THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS. So here's hopin'…

  4. The Shining is a very good film, so this is great news. Another Kubrick film that in my opinion needs sprucing up is A Clockwork Orange- a
    masterpiece. I think the last BluRay release looks a bit soft, with bland colors. Maybe this one could be tweaked?

    I think Clockwork could look a little bit better, but most of the softness is inherent in the original photography.

    That is on the schedule in 4K Blu-Ray later this year as well.

    I'm starting to think we will get a Stanley Kubrick box set in 4K BD By Christmas. Still waiting to hear about Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut.
