I think they should remaster TTT and ROTK at 2K just like FOTR but without the green tint

An upscale is not going to be much different than playing 1080p on a 4K TV and having the TV upscale. However, the one thing that a true 4K disc release can provide is wider color gamut and potentially HDR.

Unfortunately, the industry is going to release a lot of 2K films as 4K, consumers will look at them and think "what's the big deal?" and quickly kill the format. IMO, they shouldn't release anything in 4K that wasn't shot in 4K. Even that isn't all that obvious unless one is sitting very close to the TV.

Anything else is the equivalent of all those mono record albums that were released in fake "electronically re-channeled" stereo when stereo became popular. Those were all pretty damned awful.

It's sad many 4K discs might be upscales. But you're probably right

The 90's through now will be rough for remasters. All that CGI. It won't be pretty.

It will look better than Blu-ray, but the CGI will stick out like a sore thumb compared to the film elements. Unless it was all shot on 2K video, like a lot of recent movies were.

It's not like analog opticals would look any better given the same amount of effort...

A lot of opticals actually hold up pretty well. Keep in mind they were usually done on 65mm film and these shots had to hold up on 35mm or 70mm showings on HUGE screens.

I also find that a lot of '90s era CGI holds up quite well on BD, even more so than more modern stuff, like Apollo 13. Some, like The Mummy, not so much.

Heh. The CG in The Mummy (and indeed the sequel ) didn't look too hot back in the day either, so I'm not worried about how it'll look in UHD. Just getting a nice new transfer free of the rampant EE on the current versions would be a nice start.

Yeah, I keep my HD-DVD's around to watch the films without DNR and such. the blus are pretty bad in that department.

Since the 4K of the Mummy looked awesome, I'm hopeful to see LOTR. I want no expense spared on a remaster!

There was a whole fascinating featurette on the DI color grading of select scenes and such that became null when the extended cuts got stuck with the green tint

Don't forget, Jackson has a lot of footage that he hasn't used yet, but he's wanting to use in some kind behind the scenes "documentary" that could be released alongside a 4K remaster. While I don't know where the interview is off-hand, the person who shot them was the same guy who did the behind the scenes "Appendices" in the LOTR Trilogy and The Hobbit Films. The still currently planned behind the scenes stuff is based on what they did for The Hobbit. They have all of that footage, but don't have it "put together" for the documentaries. Before anybody asks, it was filmed alongside those "famous" Costa(?) Documentaries, but most of the film hasn't been seen by the "public".

Releasing it alongside a "re-released 4K remaster" would work nicely for them, especially with the 20th Anniversary of FOTR coming up in 4 years.

And also with high frame rate, and Dolby Vision.

Plus, LOTR trilogy in 3D picture & sound (Atmos).

And I want to see black levels extending to .0005 cd/m2 on an OLED display in those scenes, fully utilizing the ST-2084 standard.
That's one of the scenes I would love to see after modern color grading to HDR.
The light clipping was quite bad at the times and would need proper rework to work in UHD.

So what are your predictions? when will Warner release LOTR?
What do you think? Maybe in late 2018?

First in row now is the Harry Potter series and Nolan's Batman trilogy.
and after that? what will be the next big back catalog title?


I have sworn to myself not to switch over to 4K until LOTR appears on UHD!
