You do realize that every frame of almost every major film is "fake" in some way. What I mean is that every frame has some color correction, white balance, and cropping done. Those are all tools in the filmmaker's toolbox that are used to post-process the film before release.

HDR is another tool that film makers can use to make the film look more like real life. TVs that truly support HDR can get brighter and darker than other TVs (different than just turning down your TV), but they also have a wider color gamut (allowing the TV to display colors that others can't), and a method for 10 or 12-bit color reproduction (allowing a more accurate representation of specific colors).

So, having a 4k Blu-ray that supports HDR means that that every frame of the movie is more accurate to the filmmaker's vision (not necessarily real life, but also sometimes real life). It allows for each scene or frame to have more accurate dark scenes and brighter highlights (such as reflections, the sun, and explosions). It also (when done properly) will enable films to have darker objects and brighter objects on the screen at the same time.

I imagine that you are attempting to troll or be sarcastic. Either you already knew all this, in which case I simply took my time to help enlighten others who might not know about HDR. Or you're really if ignorant about HDR and actually believed what you said, in which case I hope this helped.

I used to feel the same way about the "upconverted" releases, but the HDR alone is worth the purchase in my book. It also appears that Disney did a decent job on the conversion.

I hope that was sarcasm! HDR10 and Dolby vision and HDR require a 10bit or higher panel to actually use it and then it is real.

Other TVs use a dithering pattern and then you have psuedo HDR, but the technique isn't just tone mapping if the TV supports it.

FYI, these are fake 4k
It'll matter if 1080p Blu-rays have HDR.

HDR is fake also, an illusion to make you feel like your purchase is special and has something the regular blu-ray doesn't have. It's all marketing.

There is no real difference between HDR and non-HDR. Just adjust your contrast on your TV to make the blacks blacker. Or get an LG OLED TV.

Was this movie any good? After the 4th movie I'm a little Leary about going and buying another one.

It was better than the fourth one, and it was better than the reviewers suggested, especially if you're a big fan of the franchise.
