Most older movies such as Jumanji used film which means that they can go back and scan in at a higher resolution. A lot of modern movies with a bunch of CGI are filmed digitally at 2k and then then up-converted to 4k. That's not to say there isn't a noticeable difference. I noticed that most people who state they can't see the difference between an HD image and 4k image are either sitting too far from their TV or they have a TV too small for the distance they plan on sitting from it for them to actually benefit from the extra resolution.

That being said, if you are ever curious whether the movie you are purchasing is true 4k, check out https://4kmedia.org/real-or-fake-4k/ .

Actually they aren't. Any movie that was shot in film could easily be converted into 4k digital media. It's mostly the capability of the scanners. 35mm film can produce an equivalent of 6k resolution. And an IMAX favorite 70mm film can produce a 12k resolution. It's all a matter of technology being able to scan and store the data and having a device capable of displaying that resolution format. In the early '90s the movie Snow White was scanned in 4k and then cleaned up and downgraded to the common format at the time. So when they keep releasing newer upgrades formats, it's all because they scan the original films with newer technology, and then they produce a resolution that is commonly available. This is the main reason why they didnt just produce a 4k remastered movie when we barely had DVDs and Blurays, because no one really had access to 4k TVs and players. Sorry about my soapbox, it's because I remember reading something about how movies are being digitally produced in 8k now to make sure its ahead of the times and can easily be converted to the next mass media format. And I remember about how a 35mm film produces a much higher quality then common digital cameras.

Fact: 99% of Hollywood movies are filmed in 1080p. These are fake 4k where the 1080p film is simply upconverted into 4k format without any noticeable improvement in picture quality.

Is there any way to watch these on a Fire TV? I don't have Apple TV and want to get rid of an iTunes gift card I was given.

Is a fake upscaled 4k still a worth watch over 1080p? Considering both are bluray quality.

It is if they've added HDR. Also most are upscaled from 2k not 1080p. It's best to lookup reviews for individual movies, as some true 4k releases look terrible and some 2k upscales look very good.
