A double blind study by Warner Brothers showed that most consumers can't tell the difference between 4K and 8K. Fun fact: most Hollywood movies are finished in 2K.

but they are not shot in 2k, and that’s the most important part. There is massive difference between newer netflix titles shot in 8k and downsampled vs older 1080p only titles. 30MP photo downsampled to 1080p will always look more detailed than an image captured in 1080p, not to mention low light performance.

Correct. Here's an interesting article on how theaters have been falling behind home cinema.
