Thank you to everyone who helped participate in our poll “The Best 4k Blu-ray Disc Mid-2018”! We have the results!
The best 4k Blu-ray Disc so far this year, according to 21% of the votes, is Blade Runner 2049. This is hardly a surprise. The sci-fi masterpiece is visually stunning in 2160p (especially with HDR), boasting color and detail in every carefully executed shot. The soundtrack by Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch (in Dolby Atmos/Dolby True HD), is both haunting and dramatic, taking the listener on an emotional journey through the almost 3-hour film.
What was a surprise though is Thor: Ragnarok came in close behind ‘2049’ with 19% of the votes. The 4k disc version of ‘Ragnarok’ offers a huge improvement over the 1080p edition, with HDR color enhancement and Dolby Atmos audio. And, even though the film’s master format was in 2k, the upscaling to 4k was well enough to earn it second place in the poll.
In third place was Black Panther with 9% of votes, another visually striking film in which you can find new details every time you watch it. And, the fourth and fifth positions went to Blue Planet II and The Matrix both with 8% of votes. See the complete list below for further ranking titles.
