    I got an email yesterday for a free rental or purchase on one 4K movie- offer expires on January 14, 2018. This is not a B1G1 or anything like that- you get the full bill credit for purchase or rental.

    This is an offer I might actually take advantage of!

    Nice to see something actually "free". Another horribly abused word.

    AT&T/DIRECTV did this back in April via e-mail. If you remember I took advantage of that offer and rented "Passengers" in 4K. I'll most likely take advantage of this offer with the movie "Dunkirk".

    I watched Dunkirk yesterday, got it for a buck from Google Play. I wondered how they could possibly do justice to that retreat. They did justice to it. Took a bit of time to get rolling but it was a good movie.

    Monterey...
    I also watched Dunkirk last evening at home. All of the nautical and most of the aeronautical bits were off technically, which spoils a film for me.

    But good cinematography, would be better on a big screen.

    That British destroyer...that seemed strange. Looked out of place in an early WWII setting. The guns looked out of place/time.

    They also completely ignored the source of the miracle.

    Did you get a chance to watch USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage? Talk about nautical bits being off. Probably the worst Navy movie I've ever seen.

    Has anyone rented/purchased Apollo 13- 4K via DirecTV yet? Curious how well that turned out if it was the remastered release for UHD 4K. I’d be interested in purchasing that for picture and sound effects for my home theater. Thanks.

    Apollo 13 was shot on film. I have the 4K Blu-ray disc and the transfer is very good. The audio has two selections, DTS:X and DTS-Master Audio 7.1. Given this you should be pleased with the DIRECTV 4K offering.

    You're welcome. Keep in mind it was shot on film so there will be some noticeable film grain.
