Mad Max: Fury road

Ge­orge Miller’s re­turn to his dystopian fran­chise was al­ready an ac­tion masterpiece. In 4K, its auto-car­nage will be­come the most vis­ceral ex­pe­ri­ence you can have with­out shav­ing your head and shar­ing a bunk bed with the Doof War­rior.

kings­man: The se­cret ser­vice

The clas­sic spy genre was turned on its head in Matthew Vaughn’s au­da­cious spin on My Fair Lady. Now you can revel in the lovely stitch­ing on a Kings­man’s be­spoke suit and the bloody car­nage meted out to those that have it com­ing.

house of cards

With Net­flix com­mit­ted to stream­ing in 4K, top TV series will also feel the ben­e­fit of greater res­o­lu­tion and depth. Which is good news, be­cause at least 44 of Kevin Spacey’s Machi­avel­lian fa­cial ex­pres­sions aren’t de­tectable in stan­dard HD.

The revenant

Leonardo Dicaprio and direc­tor Ale­jan­dro González Iñár­ritu went to Os­car-win­ning lengths to recre­ate cross­ing the Rock­ies in noth­ing but a bear pelt and a bad mood. The land­scapes will be stun­ning — 4K horse in­testines more of a chal­lenge.


On a dif­fer­ent note, the wise­crack­ing, fre­quently slow-mo­tion ul­tra­vi­o­lent hi-jinks of Ryan Reynolds’ anti-su­per­hero are all the more at­ten­tion-grab­bing in pin-sharp 4K. NB: the bad lan­guage and dirty jokes don’t get any cleaner...

Marco Polo

Net­flix’s his­tor­i­cal epic about the Vene­tian ex­plorer was shot and mas­tered in full 4K glory by cin­e­matog­ra­pher Vanja Cern­jul and colour grad­ing artist Dado Valen­tic, whose skills are also on show in Pana­sonic’s breath­tak­ing short film Con­verg­ing Beams.
