You can ONLY call a 4K movie 4K when it's been recorded in 4K, anything else is SWINDLE!
That is actually not the case. Many movies were made using 35mm film that exceeds 4K resolution. Then some were made with 70mm film that far exceeds 4K resolution.

A: I dont buy app's anymore. Apple prove's to be a very un-reliable partner. After every major update a couple of app's dont work anymore. Now im on the Ihone X with the latest IOS and all together i have 12 app's that dont work anymore. ALL apple does is mentioning it and telling you, you should send an email to the sellers!! No Apple, YOU are selling this, and making a LOAD of money on it!! SO YOU fix this!!

I dont buy "4K" movies anymore! I dont like to be swindled!! By Apple, again. Selling movie's from 1950 en 1952 as 4K i call swindle!! They look, at the most, as a copy from a copy from a VHS tape from the seventies! You can ONLY call a 4K movie 4K when it's been recorded in 4K, anything else is SWINDLE!
Stop swindling people!! 1300 for an Iphone X with the MOST faillure's i ever experienced.
Err, ah, no one believes you own an iPhone X or any Apple product actually. Why would you buy anything from a company you despise so much, a company you accuse of swindling you, a company you allegedly paid $1300 for a product that you find the worst ever? Nope, simply not a believable story, more like an invented troll.

1) You have 14 days to return the despicable iPhone X you allegedly bought.

2) Apple warned and warned for months that with iOS 11 32 bit apps would no longer work. You could even go to ‘Settings’ and view a list of your apps that would not be supported.

3) You simply are wrong about the 4K movie nonsense.

Have you EVER looked at a movie like that? Grain like pigeon eggs. Screw up the color and contrast that it hurts your eyes.
Check up the movies on IBDM, they where never shot in 4K, or anything like it.
Nope... what you have seen are just bad transfers. Look at the list on this site for true 4K transfers. For example, look at Bridge on the River Kwai filmed on 70mm film in 1957. That has better resolution than any 4K digitally filmed movie. There is no grain and the color is great.

A good explanation for how old movies like Ben Hur can be released in HD or 4K.
