I honestly like the way Dracula looks better on Blu-ray. The 4K is way too dark, and you can barely see any of the set design in Dracula's castle at the beginning of the film.

That reminds me.  I watched a film in 4k on Prime that I own on Blu-ray and felt the same way. I think it was ALIEN. I kept feeling I saw less detail because it looked dark.

I've only watched a couple things in HDR and this might be a dumb question, but do we need to adjust the brightness and/or contrast levels when viewing 4k?

I think I'll pass on these.

I'm waiting on the 8K releases.

Isn't there a whole issue called "Black crush" that all the cool kids talk about regarding upgraded transfers with too much contrast? Resulting in loss of detail? I think there is.

There's no way I'm buying all new hardware and all new software!

Didn't you have the same reaction when they first started talking about BLU-Rays?  ("I've already bought them on VHS tapes and DVD's; I don't need to buy them again.")

How many DVD's have you replaced with BLU-Rays?
When I buy a BLU-Ray, it's because I don't have it on DVD,

When I buy a BLU-Ray, it is often because I have a very poor copy on DVD - one with no extras.

I'm a sucker for restored prints from better source material.  Especially if it comes with informativ commentaries and interviews.

Are they doing all of the sequels in 4K, too? What about the K and L movies and the "B" pictures?

Unclear right now, probably not though unless they gave them 4K restorations for the Complete Collection a while back.

Unclear right now,

The Blu-rays are good enough for me. Until they come out with the brain implants.

I agree. Now bring on the implants

I can understand 4K releases for newer films but how much of a difference does it make with older films? Won’t my Blu-ray’s be just fine?

The bluray(s) are wonderful. Enjoy 'em.
