I’ve been watching the PT in fits and starts over the past couple days, 20 or 30 minutes here and there when I need a break from writing papers. Anyway, I’m now into ROTS, so I’ve got an idea of how each looks. I’d say TPM is the worst-looking; the color’s a definite improvement but it suffers from that same weird DNR waxiness as the blu-ray. AOTC is probably most-improved, the quality of the upscaling is impressive and the HDR does a reasonably effective job of selling the green screen environments. ROTS doesn’t look too different from the blu-ray through a 4K player. The HDR is nice but doesn’t really transform the look of the movie like it does in Clones, and the upscaling doesn’t look any better or worse to me than what my 4K disc player does to the blu-ray on the fly.
