Live Poll: Release the 4K Kracken!

In 2016, several monumental works of cinema history have been restored and released into cinemas with their new 4k resolutions: Gillo Pontecorvo's La battaglia di Algeri (1966);
Krzysztof Kieslowski's Dekalog (1989); etc....

Legendary Soviet director, Andrei Tarkovsky's masterpiece, Stalker (1979), will be remastered and rereleased into a limited theatrical run on May 5, 2017.

What pre1977 film** would you want to see remastered into 4K resolution and given a special theatrical rerelease?

Let's get cinegeeky over here and rejoice in the newest trend of remastered films on the big screen!


**One submission per member. Movies that haven't been released into 4k BluRay or limited theatrical release under their newly remastered 4k edition.

Tsar,

I noticed that you started your list 6 months ago, but only had people make suggestions. You currently have 8 choices. What is the minimum number of choices that you would prefer to have in your poll before this goes live?

Films shot in 35mm and 70mm may not scale up to 4K and produce pleasing results. I remember being very disappointed in how the Sorcerer's Apprentices Mickey Mouse segment looked in IMAX when that segment was included in Fantasia/2000.

Shrugs.  I guess 15 to 20 but than again the traffic here isn't particularly well traveled.

Does anybody know if there is a list of films that have been remastered and released into 4k or scheduled to be converted in the near future?

Tsar,

IMDb may have this information, but it may be difficult to summarize. I will see what I can find out.

All of Netflix's new productions are in 4K. They also have a list of 4K films available on their service, so that is a starting point.
https://www.whats-on-netflix.com/lists/4k-titles-on-netflix/

There are a few user created lists on IMDb for 4K titles:
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=site:IMDb.com/list+4K&btnK=Google%20Search

Here are some Google searches that may help:

site:IMDb.com "Technical Specifications" "(4K)"
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=site:imdb.com+%22Technical+Specifications%22+%22(4K)%22

site:IMDb.com "Digital Intermediate (4K)"
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=site:imdb.com+%22Digital+Intermediate+(4K)%22

site:IMDb.com "F55 RAW (4K)"

Surely there be more 4K Kracken beyond the ones listed in the group participation poll.

And update the text, especially “will be remastered and rereleased into a limited theatrical run on May 5, 2017”.

Just took that clause out of the entire text.
