The Best 4k Blu-rays Of All Time

best 4k blu-rays of all time

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 25, 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 quality, audio quality, bonus material, and that immeasurable “wow” factor that’s hard to put in words. The titles are not in order (that would have been torture!) but instead just listed alphabetically.

There are so many 4k Blu-ray movies and TV shows to pick from so we’ve left this to be our Top 25 for now. We’ve also listed several honorable mentions below which likely would have made it to a Top 50 (which we may extend to in the future)
