What's funny is a few years ago Hi-Definition TV's finally became a reality. It was breathtaking seeing how sharp they were and the depth in the image. Along came Blu-Ray HD discs. Quickly after 4K TV's came out and now were starting to see 8K TV's. When movies were shown on film projectors there is gate jitter to consider. When the film moves it has a slight movement that causes the moving image to look slightly softer than a static shot. Now most movies are shot with 4K cameras and shown on digital projectors. Film, when shown on film projectors never looked like these 4K movies shown on 4K projectors.

With the increasing K's (LOL) can old films ever match the resolution or should they. Making movies shot on 35mm film look much sharper only takes away from their original look.
