Discussion of the 4KUHD GBU here, with valuable input from "murch13" in several posts; post 2962 (including a relevant link) seems a good place to start:

Shockingly, KLInsider skipped the angry dismissal round and went straight to announcing a replacement program. Maybe .com should go down for a few days more often?

Ha. Universal seems to have an HD master with the title cards, which no doubt made it easier to fix and replace the disc, so Kino didn't have to do the angry denial act. Which I think they do to try to deflect when they are not going to fix an issue.(see Spaceballs, Bitter Moon, etc.)

Oh goddamn it. It would have been nice for them to let us know this when they took their first release OOP.

The title is David Cronenberg's 'Eastern Promises'.

Indeed. This is one of reasons Kino has less brand loyalty than some of the other boutique labels.

The extra annoying thing is that they have given a heads up for some of the titles they are planning on double dipping on (Marty and The Long Goodbye come to mind.)

The color corrections look way more convincing than whatever they tried to do for their previous BD release. I hope they fixed the extra features encodes, though.
I just received my copy of the new 4K UHD, and I agree. In fact this is the best-looking home video rendering of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY that I have seen so far. I don't mind that it isn't HDR. For me, the improvements in resolution and how it handles grain, to say nothing of the more well-balanced color, make the upgrade worthwhile. I also appreciate the care they took to reconstruct the theatrical version.

Those last two have me giddy. Especially because I was looking to buy Mr. Majestyk recently

Has it been announced yet that Borzage’s Desire received a 2K restoration from Kino Lorber. While I am upset Criterion didn’t snag this masterpiece, having Desire on blu makes my month.

Bill Forsyth’s 1989 film Breaking In, with a screenplay by John Sayles and starring Burt Reynolds and Casey Siemaszko, has just been announced as forthcoming, from a new 2K scan of an interpositive.

Great news! I think I asked about this when Reynolds died and was told it was unlikely to be reissued for some reason. Whatever, it's very welcome.

MGM has never produced an HD master of it, as ridiculous as that sounds. I'm glad KL sprung for their own scan. I'd love to see a sit-down with Forsyth and Sayles.

That would be great. I don't think either should be hard to reach. Also the other lead actor, Casey Siemaszko, is easily reachable if they want to do something with him - he opened a Vimeo account and posted the ending to the film, as well as clips of every film/TV show he's been in.
