7 Summer Flicks to Watch in 4K

by Cathy Carr

While summer may mean backpacking and lake trips and other outdoor excursions, it also means one thing for the more cinematic of us out there: Summer movie season.

As an avid reader of our blogs, we are sure you already have your 4K home theater all set up for this year, but as to picking out what to watch on it? How are you supposed to decide that?

Psh. That’s easy. We aren’t just an electronics store, we’re a store full of electronics nerds. We’ve gone and picked seven awesome movies worth grabbing for some summer binging this year. And of course, all of them are available in 4K -- what do you think we are, plebeians?


1.   Avengers: Infinity War

Celebrate one of the most popular movies of this summer by taking a stroll all the way back to one of the most popular movies of last summer! The cliffhanger that launched a thousand “snap” memes, “Avengers Infinity War” set up last month’s record smashing “Avengers Endgame.” Catch up and see what the hype is about or see it again to relive the heartbreak ... before “Endgame’s” heartbreak.


2.   Alien

To celebrate this classic space thriller’s 40th anniversary, “Alien” finally got a 4K release, bringing Ridley Scott’s masterpiece up to today’s home cinema standards. Not every film holds up 40 years later, but “Alien” is a prime example of cinema that ages like fine wine. Or whatever they drink in space.


3.   Lion King

“Lion King” is Disney at its very best, and there’s no better way to get ready for the live action remake coming later this year than revisiting the original classic. Now available in 4K, you’ll be able to see Simba, Mufasa, Nala, and the rest of your favorites in better detail, color, and clarity than ever before!


4.   Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

There was a time when dinosaurs ruled over Earth, but there was also a time when they ruled over the box office. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is the second film in the rebooted franchise, taking this adrenaline pumping, dinosaur romp into new territory.  


5. Planet Earth II

If you can’t go on a great vacation this summer, go on a great vacation from the comfort of your couch. “Planet Earth II” will take you on adventure after adventure across the little blue dot we call home. And of course, the detail won’t be lost on you either when you watch these journeys in 4K.

6. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got fun and games and The Rock, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart. This “Jumanji” reboot takes the original board game and turns it into a video game for a hilarious adventure through the jungle and beyond.


7. Grease

It’s greased lightning! Go back to Rydell High and relive the magic, music, and hairstyles that made all of us fall in love with the musical the first time. Now in 4K, you’ll be able to turn up the volume and enjoy your favorite songs at their best, both visually and acoustically speaking.


No matter what movies you decide to watch, make sure you are getting the best out of them with your home theater system. Give us a call today and we’ll be glad to talk you through all of our top-of-the-line 4K systems and how easy it is to bring one of them home today!
