    Generally speaking, 4K discs always redeem 4K digital. You are more likely to find a 4K disc with NO digital copy than one that redeems in 1080p.

    I redeemed my Forrest Gump on Vudu. It's 4K, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos. Not Movies Anywhere.

    Sounds on par to here: https://ultrahd.highdefdigest.com...luray.html

    I usually compare and contrast these two websites for UHD quality, and when they come to a consensus it's worth paying attention to.

    It seems like maybe this was not a full 4K HDR rescan of the film, but a remaster of the last digital scan for the 20th anniversary edition? Now some of these 2010s rescans were done with 4K in mind, but the HDR formats had yet to be solidified and I think we're seeing the result of that in the mediocre reviews.

    Also any 35 mm film should be able to be rescanned relatively flawlessly into 4k. For a motion picture you're unlikely to see instances where they're cropping or filming out of focus, because the ultimate presentation is meant for a movie theater with the 35mm projector.

    You do often see poor picture quality in 35 mm film from TV shows of the 90s/00s because they knew their ultimate audience was SDR 4:3 television and issues with resolution and camera focus would not be realized.

    As far for a movie of this quality, I'd be hard-pressed to believe original Master suffered from fuzziness because of this issue. I'd like to think there's a top notch 35 mm copy of this film out there that can be brought into 4K UHD much better than what they're selling here.
    Generally speaking, 4K discs always redeem 4K digital. You are more likely to find a 4K disc with NO digital copy than one that redeems in 1080p.

    Digital copy I believe works on either VUDU or iTunes, it's not MA eligible.

    Does the digital redeem in 4K or HD or is there anyway to tell?

    If you only want the 4K digital, Amazon has it for $7.99 [amazon.com], but since it's not MA, that's less attractive.

    If anyone has already seen this 4k version, have any thoughts on the video quality? This review of another Forrest Gump 4K disc makes me think that you're better off with watching in HD instead: https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Fo...ay/202137/
