Movies with biggest improvement from SDR to HDR

Now that I've finally gotten a UHD Player (LG UBK90), all of my disk purchases going forward with be UHD, but I'm now gazing at my library of SDR Blurays and wondering which movies will most benefit from an upgrade to HDR.

So if anyone has compared the SDR HD Bluray version to a re-released HDR UHD Bluray version of the same movie, I'm interested in which titles show the greatest (and most worthwhile) improvement going from SDR HD to HDR UHD...

Found this: http://www.thewrap.com/best-4k-hdr-...per-mamma-mia/

Here is The Wraps list the best hdr movies (with emphasis on 'much better than 1080p SDR):

Alien: Covenant
Avengers: Infinity War
The Avengers
Black Panther
Blade Runner 2049
The Fate of the Furious
Game of Thrones (Season 1)
The Hitman's Bodyguard
Intersteller
John Wick Chapter 2
Justice League
Mamamia: Here We Go Again
The Matrix
Pacific Rim: Uprising
Phantom Thread
The Purge: Anarchy
The Purge: Election Year
Ready Player One
Red Sparrow
Skyscraper
Staship Troopers
E.T.
Close Encounters
Saving Private Ryan
Transformers: Age of Extinction
Transformers: The Last Knight
Wonder Woman

Appreciate any feedback whether any of these films did not look enough better in HDR UHD to be worth the upgrade from SDR BluRay (as well as whether there are additional films worthy of the SDR->HDR upgrade that The Wrap overlooked).

Thumbs up This link will help you decide which are worth it.

UltraHD Blu-ray (4K) Discs and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for Dummies


Specifically:


Dolby Vision Reviews by Geoff D “The Geoffy Vision™, it never lies!”


HDR10 Reviews by Geoff D “The Geoffy Vision™, it never lies!”


Very detailed reviews. Bottom line: Most are worth it.

All I know is John Wick 2 looks absolutely stunning in HDR. Beyond stunning.

Wow that's a great resource - thanks!

This is a good example of exactly the kind of SDR-vs-HDR comparison I was looking for: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.p...&postcount=766

5th Element is one of my favorite movies and I have mot seen any reviews of the UHD release - has anyone seen this and can they comment on whwther the HDR is a worthwhile upgrade from the Bluray?

The Fifth Element (1997) (20th Anniversary Edition) 4K UHD

Geoff D had some older reviews with a different player so they did not show in my searches. Since I follow your OLED threads and posts I decided to see what Geoff D had to say about The Fifth Element. That's when I discovered this and about 10 other reviews, which I will be adding to the thread.

I find the reviews on highdefdigest to be pretty accurate as well.
