I was under the impression that the blu-ray disc would be a scaled-down copy of the new 4K transfer... but I'm almost positive this is just the exact same disc we got in the Anthology set.

Just throwing this out for anyone who's curious.

I'm not a tech geek (heck I watch torrented movies on a square PC plasma screen from 2007) but I don't get "ultra HD" upgrades of old movies.

Even new cinema movies are still filmed in 24 frames per second so DVD is fine.

The 4K-HD element adds odd movements and frame morphing during films I find. TV is ok but that's because TV is ultra real. Movies need that fantasical haze to differentiate the atmosphere.

...ow, is that a joke?

Ultra HD has nothing to do with frame rate, it's the frame size. The actual size of the image. The films are still 24 frames per second, it's just that they're scanned in a higher resolution digital format.

Folks will convince themselves of anything to justify sticking with dvd after all these years.

"It's cheaper" is still a pretty good argument, but that's about it.

Which is a huge shame. I wonder how hard it would have actually been to give us the new transfer at 1080.

Easy, but Capitalism.
And yeah, the Blu-ray annihilates the DVD's visual and audio presentation, and the UHD is superior again.

Anyone can confirm if thr 4kHDR quality is any beneficial to the consumer? Especially in the shot of the planets I'm wondering if the extra bits of colour information show us anything in the dark dark details of the shadowed planets.

Yeah, I notice a difference in sharpness and visible detail. Though it's also more dependent on distance from the screen than 1080p is. HDR also makes a difference depending on the quality of the display implementation.

It's not as big of a jump as the one from DVD to Blu-Ray was, but it's still a jump.

As much as I'd love to get it, it's not enough of a jump for me to justify a $600+ tv and $100+ player and accoutrements.

The anthology blurays are about as perfect as I could ever want.

Studios rarely ever do that. And why would they? Even if they remastered the 1080p transfer, you're not gaining much of anything. No enhanced resolution, no HDR, The 4K set is for people who have the equipment to view 4K stuff. The addition of the 1080p disc is merely a supplement.
