Honestly, I'm at the point where I'm trying to slow things down in the editing room. Speed is the enemy of depth.
For home viewing anything beyond 4k is overkill, even with a projector on a small screen. For theatres, 8K will have visible benefit in the larger screens, especially IMAX. VR will also greatly benefit from 8K cameras.
I want to see this movie as bad as anyone, but Nolan's dreaming. Soon as they start to relax restrictions, there will be a surge of cases and another shutdown. This will continue for a year to two years. And theatres will be half empty for years after that.
The Raiders criticism doesn't hold water either. The Nazis in attendance at the ceremony would have had their faces melted, but they were still on a Nazi base with a submarine and the Ark would have still ended up in the hands of Hitler and the Nazis. How Indy got the Ark off the island is never shown, but if he wasn't there, the Americans wouldn't have it. In the original script, Kasdan wrote a sequence where Indy and Marion escape the island with the ark in a mine car and after a brief chase wind up on a boat watching the island sink, probably to address the above criticism. They cut that and used the mine car chase in the sequel.
ASS CRACK BANDIT!!!
I think Kubrick did the smart thing in transplanting the story from one medium to another. Prose and cinema are different art forms with different strengths. In prose, you can explore the interior lives of characters and get inside their heads in a very direct way. In The Shining, you get an inside out perspective of a man's alcoholism and descent into madness, from his own point of view, and that's very compelling to read. Films can't get inside someone's head as directly, it requires imagery and dramatic scenes to illuminate a characters interior state. If Kubrick had been as heavy handed with Jack's alcoholism as the book was, you'd find him off putting as he'd just be a drunk asshole. So he pushed that element to the background and focused more on his frustrations with his writing career and family. I don't think Nicholson's Jack comes off as crazy from the get go. Maybe a bit tense and short fused but...uh...anyone with a wife and kids can understand and identify with those emotions quite easily.
