12. I recently watched the 4K version of True Lies

I thought it looked fantastic. Especially since before now, True Lies was only available on DVD, not even regular Blu-ray. Certainly nothing made the movie look oddly darker like all of these enhanced/restored comparison images look.

What was odd is just as the movie started, I was thinking "This doesn't look 4K", because the opening titles text had a very soft-edged look - something easy to make much sharper just by redoing them from scratch.

After that, however, nearly everything looked great. Maybe occasionally not as sharp as you might hope, but still at least very good. I never thought skin textures looked odd, as was mentioned in the OP.

Since James Cameron is still around to give his approval, this is also a case where there's worry about the original creator not approving.
