It's available in Austrailia, so iTunes will probably add it soon here too, but Apple still hasn't offered "Underworld" in 4K yet (they only offer the extended in the store), and the 4K UV > MA version is the theatrical version, and it's been on 4K Blu-ray for a while now, so they don't have to.

It seems you can word it prettily, but in the end it's still "just because".
Or whatever reason you have for the Extras, most people can apply to aspect ratio too.

I know it's not truly an IMAX aspect ratio (it's still being cropped), but visually, it's actually kind of exciting when those scenes hit the screen. You are suddenly much more immersed in the picture. It pulls you in a lot more when the screen suddenly fills like that, makes you ready for action! Then when it's back to letterbox, you can relax and focus on the story.

Just like Atmos audio can envelope you in sound when it wants to, the switch from 'normal' to IMAX size affects your impression of the scene. They actually lose a significant amount of 'oomph' when they are cropped like the rest of the film. (Granted, just like with Atmos, you are only likely to notice it if you know you are missing it... But if you have a copy of the film that is different, you will notice. If you saw it in theaters, you will notice. I can still picture in my head the fist time The Dark Knight went IMAX from seeing it in theaters, it's a visual 'effect' that sticks in your head. I want my home experience to be exactly the same (at least, as much as possible on 16x9 screens))...

As for complaints, they were complaints directly to the studio (at least in the one case I know of), not online. The ones that had the IMAX scenes that were replaced with cropped ones are because customers complained to the studios that something was wrong with the film because the size of the screen kept changing. They apparently felt it was easier to 'fix' it, rather than educate the public...

Maybe all the people that want the IMAX versions back need to start complaining weekly if they aren't replaced (or included as an Extra at least). There really is no reason not to include both, especially if they already have the master file...
Have I said “all” extras? Perhaps I have but I have no memory’s of it.

I’m interested in the production of movies and I like commentaries, BTS dissecting VFX, stunts , etc.

Any of that of on the discs I’d like on Blu-Ray.

There is a lot useless drivel on disc too - talking heads waffling how great something is filled with movies clips. I can do with without that.

I feel I have to point out again that you seem to misunderstand the precious exchanges. I’m not saying anything is wrong with people wanting these IMAX scenes, I’m not saying they shouldn’t be on home releases, I’m not saying anyone is wrong to want them.

The “just because” comment is only because when I asked a couple of forum members why they wanted these scenes in IMAX when the screens we watch the movies on are not IMAX screens (asked by someone who has neither seen an IMAX movie or an IMAX scenes in iTunes ), they didn’t respond to that question at first, then said it “didn’t need explaining” because if it is on the disc it should be on every format.

That response is quite simply a “just because”.

I wasn’t saying everyone feels that way and I wasn’t even saying Gonzo and spiderneil only want it “just because” - I’m saying it just seems that way based on their responses.

You’ve explained a reason why you want it. Admiral also commented on it, that is all o was looking for - it explains it enough until I get to see it myself.

People were aware that complaints from the public caused the editing of IMAX footage. Why did people not start a campaign to fix it?

So just tried them both and having the same issue here aswell. I can access the itunes extras but the movie will not play. Tried it on my iphone & ipad. Something must be going on because the original will play just fine.

I just realized this today, but some movies I have purchased in 4k from iTunes (as opposed to upgrades or codes) I do not have in UHD on Vudu. Who knows about MA. Where do I purchase a given title from to guarantee I have it in 4k across all platform?

If they were 4K on iTunes when you purchased they should port as 4K to MA and other services... UNLESS it is released by a studio who does not participate in MA or VUDU does not yet have the UHD version.

You can know about MA by checking your MA library. If you own a movie it will list the resolution you own it at.

Am I the only who getting severe raised blacks on Blade Runner Final Cut? I have an OLED TV. In the opening crawl the black is practically gray. If I reset 'deep colour' it turns black. I have the physical disk now but I'm curious if someone else has had the same problem or the problem is my TV.

That explains it, I forgot about Paramount. Confused due to some movies being upgraded on Apple from HD, and not others. Thanks.

Edit: What about Disney titles that are not 4k yet in iTunes? Is it better to purchase those new releases from Vudu?

I wouldn't hold your breath for Disney titles getting 4K versions on iTunes. It's been almost 2 years. The only way Disney will give free 4K upgrades is if it starts affecting their sales by not doing so.

Not the answer you're looking for, but right now my iTunes 4K total less than 100....so i scroll all the way to the right, then count rows down.....31 rows=93 titles...and an additional row of two...equals 95 for me!

I'm a beta tester and NONE of the beta TVOS shows "the counts" anymore, hoping this is just till the final version in the fall when Apple + opens up.

For total the only way is to go to purchased section of the Movies app.
