Movies made approx between 2000 and now have what's called a digital intermediate. They may capture the movie on film (or high end digital cameras), but the end result may be done at a lower resolution due to special effects and such. A lot of movies were done with a 2K DI and others with 4K DI. Sometimes the film was captured on a 3.4K digital camera and the DI is 2K. Sometimes it's upscaled to 4K.

When they say "real 4k" they mean it was recorded on film (or 4K digital) and placed on a 4K DI. When they say near 4k, it was captured with a resolution higher than 2K but placed on a 4K DI. When they say FAKE 4K, it means it could've been recorded with 5K cameras but the special effects and such were done in 2K and the end result is a 2K DI... fake 4K Smilie

Prior to 2000 most things did not use a DI so this depends on how the film was scanned. Most of the time they scan old films with 4K.. sometimes 6 or 8K. The thing is -- even a movie scanned in 8K can look "softer" than a 2K DI film. It depends on how the movies was filmed, what type of lenses were used, etc... It's never clear-cut...

The best thing to do is look at reviews from websites you trust, etc prior to purchasing. With 4K , there's also HDR and color can be 10 or 12 bit (versus 8 bit for blu-ray)... This can result in an improved image... to some people that is not enough to justify the upgrade from their blu-ray.

But if it saves at least one person from buying the new one...it's worth it.

If you gave a Movies Anywhere account linked to your Amazon and iTunes accounts, you can buy it on iTunes, and it will show in your Amazon library.

Honest question. What is the difference between real and fake 4K? How do you tell a difference?
