The 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray movies give you a fantastic experience, which is the closest thing to a movie theatre. I would say that it’s better than the movie theatre due to the Dolby Vision, HDR, and readily available Dolby Atmos sound systems. Moreover, the 4K HD Blu-rays will have a better quality than anything you watch online. Although some streaming services introduce amazing content that takes advantage of the 4K TV, the image quality of the streaming video isn’t even close to the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray.
Keeping this in mind, we have made a list of the best 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies. Each disc on this list is fantastic and worthy of recommendation. Moreover, the discs are region free, so anyone with a 4K Blu-ray player can watch these films.
Now let’s take a look at the list:
- Captain Marvel:
Captain Marvel is one of the top-grossing movies this year. Plus, it is the first female-led Marvel movie, which makes it a must-watch movie. The film is set in the 90s. When you watch this movie on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, you will notice that all secondary and primary colors are quite rich. It seems like they are popping from the screen. Moreover, the CGI fantasy elements look quite impressive.
There are also many close-up shots in the movie, and the 4K shows the details well. You can also see the closest details clearly, like the costumes and the characters’ physical features.
Guardians of the Galaxy is another superhero movie that will look awesome on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. However, the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 hasn’t been released you. You can read more details here.
The resolution of Captain Marvel is 2160p/24. The aspect ratio is 2:39:1, and the run time of the movie is 124 minutes.
2. The Lion King:
If you are looking for an outstanding demo-disc that you can sell your family on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Disney’s 2019 Lion King is the right fit for you.
There are numerous textures shown throughout the movie, from the wet mud bank and desert plains to the jungle. The sun-kissed sceneries are quite amazing. CGI-animated animals also look quite realistic.
When the Lion Musafa appears on the screen, you will instantly see the amazing artistry and attention to detail. You can easily spot the whiskers and hair, along with the stunning sunlight, which makes his fur look realistic. Thus, the reference-quality release is unparalleled.
The Dolby Atmos audio track balances the sound effects, vocals, and music. The resolution is 2160p. The aspect ratio of the movie is 1:78:1, and the run time is 118 minutes.
3. The Shape of Water:
The Shape of Water looks terrific on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, and you can observe the fantastic set decoration, makeup effects, costumes, despite the increased resolution.
Although the film is incredible, the main highlight of the movie is the sea creature that instantly gets the heroin’s attention. The details and makeup of the creature are quite clear despite the disc’s increased resolution. Thus, for people who are interested in watching action fantasy in high quality, this is a must-have release.
The screen resolution of the movie is 2160p. Moreover, the aspect ratio is 1:85:1, and the length of the film is 123 minutes.
4. Sausage Party:
The main idea behind Sausage Party was for Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen to get together and make an R-rated animated comedy movie. The film also looks quite amazing on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.
There are extra details in certain foods, and the sausages look like real objects which you can feel and touch. Moving to high dynamics also makes it even more realistic. Although there are better CGI animated films, the Sausage Party is still quite aesthetically appealing.
The resolution of the movie is 2160p. The aspect ratio is 1:85:1, and the run time is 89 minutes.
5. Atomic Blonde:
Atomic Blonde is probably the most stylish film of the year. It looks fantastic on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray with the vibrant and neon-soaked transfer. Moreover, the color reproduction is quite amazing.
The skin tones, hair color, everything seems quite realistic. And all the bruises and cuts that the main character, Charlize Theron, gets along the way look quite real too. However, the disc doesn’t have a Dolby Atmos track, but the DTS:X does an amazing job of creating sound effects.
The resolution of the movie is 2160, and its aspect ratio is 2:39:1. The overall runtime of the film is 135 minutes.
