If the "4K movie" brand wants to be credible... VFX shots need to be significantly sharper than on Blu Ray.
Nearly 1000 VFX shots in Social Network were done at 2K.
I already have the Blu-Ray.
If you're trying to sell me a 4K version and the movie gets soft every time we have the twins in the shot... I'm going to ask for my money back!
And if there is no difference between the 4K and 2K shots across the whole film... I'm also going to ask for my money back!
Like I said Bruce, it is what it is. Until technology, manpower, and hardware costs align to bring rapid turnaround of quality high-resolution VFX work, you have no choice but to accept it or tell Hollywood to outsource everything to India and Asia, where they can do 4K or higher VFX quickly, for less money with their setups.
To be real, if you have a most all 4k old film, with a little upscaled 2k, it does not matter so much,
Benjamin Buttons (Great looking movie BTW) was shot on the Viper, a 2K/1080P camera, so no going back to the negative there for 4K.
Mike, Spiderman 2 (Or maybe 3) was one of the first films to actually do the VFX at 4K, it's the movie that convinced most producers to stick to 2K
