Re: The Outsider (HBO series)

I enjoyed it. But yes it was a weak ending, a bit muddled and unoriginal.

Yeah it's just a different experience. Black Hawk Down looks absolutely stunning in 4k. Shot on film.

I watched Better Call Saul this week in 4k - and it too looks totally out of this world.

Yes basically Caine. I'm aware that I'm probably missing out on several good movies by putting them at the back of the list, but it's just one of those things.

IT'S me that's at fault here - I have an irrational dislike to Michael Caine. I think he's terrible.

Hope you like it as much as I did. I've not seen much of his to be fair - I'm put off 'Youth' by the ageing cast. 'Loro' is supposed to be a continuation of this film I think.

Re: Is it worth getting a 4K player, or should I stick with blu ray?

HDR does help - especially on a large OLED TV. But it's not everything. I recently watched Edward Scissorhands in 4k on my TV - No HDR - and it looked absolutely fantastic. The detail and colour was...
