with Shane Black doing the new predator movie I decided to look up other movies he has directed.  Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang was an older movie I really enjoyed and so I watched The Nice Guys.  Huge plus for that movie, lots of fun.  Doubt the funny action buddy cop movies will make a good predator film but he certainly has my vote as a good film director/writer

Just watched La La Land. 

I liked it better when it had muppets in it.

Valerian and the City of 1,000 Planets

It is a bit better than Starcrash.  Looks great, and is less filling. 

This movie will make a great Rifftrax someday.

I did like Transformers the Last Knight quite a bit but in terms of blockbusters Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell no Tales was the best one so far this year.
Overall 2017 has been a good year with a lot of interesting movies.

Looking forward to mother!, Blade Runner 2049 & TLJ.

I wonder if the new Blade Runner will have as many cuts and re-releases on home video. =P

everything is shot digitally now as opposed to old film.  The film itself is re-scanned into individual images, and for the last Blu-ray release that is what they did.  This 4k version is some sort of upscale for that I guess.  I don't know how many special effects they are replacing with new, like explosions for example but the audio track is all newly remastered to use the new dolby atmospheric encoding so technically a 9.1 surround sound.  This is done, all under the supervision of the director of the film I understand.

other re-releases have been simple cleanups of the last version, the original Blu-ray re-release was that.  A lot of these re-releases are like that and that is how they get a bad stigma about them.  the titles are usually just put on the shelf to create hype for the media in it's early stages....now that 4k is actually gaining ground, they can put work into an actual re-release.

the newest fifth element was a complete re-start to make a new 4k disc and holy crap is it nice, its astonishing the little things you see now, stuff you don't notice though if you haven't seen the movie as many times as I have  :D

I think Stormwind is referring to the different versions of the original Blade Runner:
"Theatrical cut" or "Final Cut" or "Directors Cut".
Having different endings. With and without voice over for example.
