I've spent some time with a Red Epic and wasn't impressed at all. You have to pretty much capture at 5K for the image to look near as good as an Alexa's. When you make a 2K master out of it, Alexa still wins because of how clean the image is captured. The Red is just noisy. I'd rather shoot with an Alex if I had the choice, but the price of the camera makes it untouchable for indie films.

Was it really upscaled or was it just the 2.8K image on a 4K frame?

All the movies I always wanted to get, because I held out till they made a format capable of displaying movies at or near 35mm film.

Most movies I have downloaded or streamed. I only bought few of my most wanted movies, rare or movies that are hard to come by, even on blu-ray but I always knew a better format would eventually come out so I held off any future purchases, nothing I regret!

I would consider anything that is a serious upgrade, not necessarily just "reference" discs. But of course, I do look forward to 4K reference material.

These are what would be no brainers for me:

Star Wars: Original Trilogy
2001: A Space Odyssey
Mission Impossible (since it needs upgrade bad)
Unforgiven
Blade Runner
Goodfellas
BBC nature documentaries in 4K
Samsara/Baraka

I don't know how deep they'll delve into catalog titles, but I hope they go all out on those that they bring to the format. I don't like that blu-ray largely became a dumping ground for DVD era masters, and barebones (sometimes generically labeled) discs slapped into eco cases. I would look to upgrade any of those travesties onto 4K format, especially where the film deserved much better.

Unless there is there is some content on the 4K disc that is specific to that disc outside of picture quality I will not upgrade to 4K. It is such a racket. I haven't even gotten rid of alot of the dvds I double dipped on.

That seems almost out of the question.

Most studios couldn't be bothered adding new extras at 1080p for blu-ray, often times just dumping SD content even where HD content should have been available with minimal effort (such as SD trailers, or SD deleted scenes). Do you think they are going to start conducting a bunch of new features and interviews at 4K? Is there even a point?

I don't need new materials, I just hope for the definitive release. Of course that means I want the most complete set of extras, and hopefully with the best quality available (i.e. whoever is in charge should be punched if they put an SD trailer or SD scenes on a 4K disc). But I don't think this is close to the level of importance as the PQ/AQ of the actual film.
