Change of heart

I've got a high end Panasonic dolby vision player that displays discs in all their glory, be it a soft source or a sharp one. When I see how great Spartacus and Wonderful Life looked restored, I make the mistake of thinking that every movie on 4k should deserve the same quality restoration...but unfortunately, they are limited to the source quality. I've compared the 4k disc to the HD one and the sharpness levels are a bit better on the 4k. Where the difference is huge are in the contrast levels and color boost from the HDR grading. Yes the 4k disc is better than the HD one by a lot...just don't expect it to reach sharpness levels of other restored films. After it is said and done, appreciation for the movies itself wins out....it is a charmingly eccentric movie and we love it!
