It’s the classic films shot on 35mm or 70mm, and not the newest blockbusters that make 4K Ultra HD worth owning. Classics such as The Red Shoes (1948), Casablanca (1942), The Thing (1982) and Singin’ in the Rain (1952) often have big improvements over the 1080p versions, while the newest blockbusters often show little improvement over 1080p.

TCW: The Complete Movie Series
Time

You should watch Smudger9’s TCW Episodes I-V tv-to-movie edits to get a basic idea of what he did, and then decide whether to either continue your current plans or rework the idea to be a continuation of his films. His plan envisioned a 9-movie saga, and started his edits before Canon Season 7 was announced. Maybe this edit works best as 12 movies rather than 14.
