First it has to be something I really like and how much I like it in comparison to the price. If the price is cheap, ($10ish) I'd buy anything probably.

Franchises also are taken into consideration, going forward I'll get 4K over BD when possible so if a franchise is still going and the latest is on 4K and the previous ones get upgraded, I'll get those too. I most likely wouldn't have gotten Pitch perfect 1 and 2 and Mamma Mia on 4K if the new one in the series wasn't released on 4K.

Either you need a MUCH larger film library or you should risk talking to women.

A film I really like or I know I like and something that I know will suit the format. Stereotypically comedies imo don't benefit all that much on the format though there are exceptions(Big Lebowski).

Ive considered it but since my Xbox 1 upscales BR why get 2 of the same movie? How much better could the video quality be?

But all my movie purchases lately have been 4k

Christine (5/5 video quality)

Overlord (5/5)

Pirates: Dead men tell no tales (4/5)

Mortal Engines (5/5)

Only Star Wars films, Lebowski, and Dazed & Confused.

If I own the DVD, I can "skipgrade" to the UHD, but BRDs won't be upgraded. My 4K projector does a great job upconverting, so I'm good.

I upgrade everything because a) can sell on the inferior BD, b) because they are 99% outdoing the BD by a significant margin. Even just the compression uptick is worth it for me.

The mastered in 4K discs from Sony would have been instant purchases if I didn't know 4K itself was coming, for instance. But why settle for gimped SDR when 10-bit video w/ WCG and HDR is where it's at?

Mostly Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive audio formats are one of the reasons I upgrade majority of my titles to 4K, even if sometimes the picture quality is only marginally better than the Blu-ray (Oblivion and Serenity 2005 both come to my mind for example, the Atmos and DTS:X tracks certainly make up for the DNR'd picture quality).

For me it has to be an upgrade and it has to be the right price. I have a lot of my movies on my Vudu account so if it’s one of those I normally wait until it’s priced at $15 or lower before buying. If it’s what I consider a classic and I have to see it right away I’ll buy it as long as it isn’t over $40

Must be a film I really like and one which has a lot of re-watch potential. Since I have a theater room I used to buy blu rays for the demo potential to show off but that got old since I found so many times that was the only redeeming aspect to a lot of them.

Since this is just asking about 4k (even though it’s on a UHD Page) I’d say the effort that was put into restoring as well as preserving in the highest format available, on iTunes I’d buy/rent anything. Great prices. Where I’m from we currently don’t have VUDU.
I have a UHD collection of 100+ films, several of these films I haven’t seen since VHS/DVD. So I know I’m likely going to reevaluate everything. I used to blind buy most Criterion’s, but I watched everything in the collection and all the Eclipse’s.
I’m currently going through Arrow’s library (and a lot of region B locked titles, since I can afford to, and most haven’t been seen since I watched them on a CRT, it’s amazing how good a film can be if the transfer isn’t garbage).
UHDs are the finest today, I’d give any cult film a rewatch in this format if the reviews seem worth it. Even if it’s just bought for the Criterion worthy supplements. (Harry Potter, Black Hawk Down).
If it’s one of the greatest films ever made: I.e. Alien, Blade Runner, Halloween, Saving Private Ryan, Die Hard, Groundhog Day, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Matrix, Phantom Thread, Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, Interstellar, The Shining, Apocalypse Now, etc. (Listing what’s out and what we already know, would love to see La Dolce Vita, Seven Samurai, Fanny & Alexander, Tokyo Story, Aguirre, Andrei Rublev, Vertigo, etc.) it’s a day 1.
35mm prints for any of these films aren’t cheap, and $10-30 for this quality is a bargain. It’s basically a premium DCP you can watch whenever, and it’ll only be improved that much further when I get a 8k OLED (or whatever’s the best tech in 3-5 years).
The theatres near me aren’t the best, and AMC & Dolby (and anything of that sort, I’ve never seen a film in those) are far away. So the UHD is just more affordable. Several titles don’t come up here, and DV doesn’t work with E6P & X1X. So I have a Apple TV for those other films.
There’s also films that don’t immediately have a 4k on iTunes (or will likely never, Disney, Hellboy 2) so there’s a good chance those are on my radar. Also, maybe some sale for the titles that escaped me are on.

I prefer my home theatre setup to the nearby theatres.

Well if its a film I like a lot I am buying it in 4K. If I can get money for the old Blu-ray (usually a steelbook) and that finances (or more than finances ) the 4K that makes it even more of a no-brainer. But I wont just buy the 4K regardless - some I am quite happy to wait until they hit a low price/offer etc.

If it's a movie that I really like or part of a franchise I collect (Godzilla, Jurassic Park, Transformers, Evil Dead, etc)

If it's a movie I liked but was dissatisfied with the Blu-ray release enough to warrant a upgrade (The Mummy, Starship Troopers)

Plain impulse (Sometimes I'm a sucker)

If I already have it on blu-ray i wait for a sale, unless it's a must have. Eventually I will upgrade most blu-rays.

I only started buying blu-rays in 2017, just about two years ago. So any upgrade from blu-ray to 4k is recent.

I've upgraded:
Evil Dead 1
Evil Dead 2
Karate Kid 1
Alien

Each of the titles was cheap, about $5 per title on blu-ray, and the 4k releases were all cheap ($20 for Karate Kid and $15 for the others).

So... on the one hand my upgrades from blu-ray to 4k were relatively cheap for both versions. On the other hand.... I've actually upgraded everything from blu-ray to 4k that I actually could.

Usually for the Atmos/DTS X track or a remaster that destroys the previous blu-ray release if it had one.

And the HDR/Dolby Vision will be a future bonus
