There are approximately 500 individual 4k Blu-ray titles as of October 2020 (not counting retailer exclusives, re-releases, and collections). We’ve taken a bold step to select our Top 50, knowing some of you may disagree with the selections and wonder why your favorite title isn’t included.

What we can tell you is that our top selections are based on these five things: movie quality (Oscar-winners/nominees, etc.), 4k/HDR video qualityaudio quality, bonus material (including packaging, presentation, etc.), and that immeasurable “wow” factor that is hard to put in words.

There are so many 4k Blu-ray movies and TV shows to pick from so we’ve left this to be our Top 50 for now. Please note these titles are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of ranking. This page is a work in contstruction so please check back soon for updates. And, feel free to comment below if we’re missing any of your favorite 4k discs!
