The 44 best movies to watch on a 4K TV, according to Fandango users

4K entertainment was once a thing of luxury — few could afford it or justify dishing out a large sum of cash for the necessary equipment. Now, 4K TV's have gotten much more affordable, 4K streaming devices are easy to find and are relatively cheap as well, and plenty of entrainment is offered in the high-resolution format. 

Once you've made the jump to 4K, though, you're going to want to put your setup to the test to see what you've been missing. 

Fandango, a movie-ticketing company which operates the FandangoNOW streaming service, conducted a survey with FandangoNOW users to determine the best movies to watch in 4K. So if you're looking to get the most out of your fancy high-resolution setup, here are 44 titles that come highly recommended.

This brother and sister duo have a growing startup that uses simple text messages to get you off your phone and off on real-life adventures

The Nudge is a text messaging service that sends messages to its community of subscribers, trying to get people off their phones and off on adventures in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The company was co-founded by the brother and sister team of John and Sarah Peterson.  The company raised $540,000 in "pre-seed" round in July and will be expanding to Seattle in the coming months, after some early success in San Francisco.  When asked about starting a company as siblings, John told us: "It's kind of intense sometimes, to be honest."

Sarah Peterson was working for Apple in Munich, Germany when she found out that her older brother John was starting his own company.

That company, called Livday, created daily itineraries for people exploring new cities. The plans told users not only where to hike and which museums to explore, but also where to get a coffee beforehand, and where to grab a post-adventure meal.


'The Grinch' easily wins the weekend box office, while 'Girl in the Spider's Web' bombs

The latest animated movie by the studio behind "Despicable Me" and "Minions" has another hit with "The Grinch." This most recent retelling of the classic Dr. Seuss story won the weekend box office with $66 million. This opening bests the 2000 Jim Carrey-starring version, which had a $55 million opening. But it wasn't good news for "The Girl in the Spider's Web." The $40 million-plus reboot of the Lisbeth Salander franchise only had an $8 million opening.

It seems like everyone is already in the holiday spirit as the latest telling of the Dr. Seuss classic, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" took a nice bite out of the US box office over the weekend.

The most recent title from animation studio Illumination (creators of "Despicable Me," "Minions," and "Sing") has definitely put a smile on Universal's face, which releases the animation studio's works. The movie took in an estimated $66 million to easily win the weekend.


Fox News told staff not to tweet its content from their personal accounts amid Tucker Carlson protests, according to internal email

According to an internal email obtained by Business Insider, Fox News has asked its employees not to tweet out theirs or other Fox News stories from their business or personal Twitter accounts. The email was sent to Fox News's entire digital team, according to a source.

Uber and Lyft confirm drivers can’t broadcast videos of passengers after a string of privacy incidents

Both Uber and Lyft have confirmed that they do not allow drivers to stream or publish videos of passengers. In October, Uber took heat after a group of Ottawa Senators hockey players were recorded bad-mouthing a coach by an Uber driver. In July, a driver in St. Louis was found to have streamed hundreds of rides on Twitch. 

Recording and publishing videos of riders is against the rules for Uber and Lyft drivers, the companies have reaffirmed, after several high-profile incidents garnered headlines and privacy concerns in recent weeks.

The issue came to light once again at the end of October, after a


These are the screen sizes for next year's iPhone lineup, according to the most accurate Apple analyst (AAPL)

Apple could release three new iPhones with the same screen sizes as this year's models, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in a note for investors.

Apple may opt for a Modified Pi (MPI) antenna over the Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) antennas it currently uses in iPhones, according to the note, which was seen by Business Insider. 


The father of the web has persuaded Google and Facebook to sign up to his code of ethics because they're doing so much damage to his creation (FB, GOOG, GOOGL)

Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the web, has persuaded Google, Facebook, and the French government to sign up to a set of ethical principles. He also suggests breaking up these tech titans. The "contract" asks companies and governments to respect people's privacy and to keep the web free. Berners-Lee has been hugely critical of Silicon Valley firms monopolising the web. He met with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this year to discuss how the firm could do better, including suggesting that the social network scraps its Free Basics offering for emerging economies.

Tim Berners-Lee, the British inventor of the web, has convinced Google and Facebook to agree to new ethical principles around respecting people's data and privacy — while also advocating for breaking them up.

Google's new video-game streaming service could mark the beginning of the end for gaming consoles

Google's ProjectStream lets you play blockbuster video games with your internet browser, if you've got a strong enough internet connection. Using ProjectStream, the visuals and controls of "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey" match the look and feel of playing the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. If ProjectStream and other cloud gaming platforms can provide a streaming experience that feels consistent with playing on console, they can lower the price of entry for high-end video games by hundreds of dollars. Cloud gaming will eventually kill consoles if it can provide gamers with a healthy library of streaming games at the right price.

Earlier this month Google rolled out a
