I normally watch 4K 2D Bluray remuxes on my PC connected to a 65" TV with MPC-HC. I sit 1.7 metres away from the TV.
Would a VR headset or AR headset such as Nreal Air give a better experience for watching a 2D 4K Bluray remux than on my 65" TV? How do you actually watch such movies on a VR headset, do I need special software or something? I assume I can't use MPC-HC?
Does 2D standard definition look just as good on a VR headset than on a TV? Does the VR headset upscale just like a TV does?
Would a VR headset look like watching a 100" or larger TV? Is the picture quality better because the real size of the image is small compared to a large image size on a TV?
What headset would you recommend for the best picture quality and comfort?

Which TV are we discussing? Without that information how do you expect anyone to say whether or not your TV is any good for watching 4K movies?Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
The question wasn't about watching movies on the TV, it was asking if watching a movie is better on a VR headset than a TV. Just assume it's a good TV.
VR is intended for displaying 3D video. If you wanted to watch 3D Blu-ray a VR headset could be an acceptable replacement for the discontinued 3D-capable HDTVs.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
My apologies. Here's my TV's model: Sony Bravia XR-55X90J
Maybe I should have phrased my question better. Regardless of what TV I have, in theory if I had a good 4K TV with HDR then is watching a 4K 2D movie better/worse/same on a VR or AR headset compared to the 65" TV?
I'm only watching 2D 4K HDR movies or 480p-1080p DVD/Bluray remuxes. It sounds like a VR headset is only good for VR stuff NOT for watching 2D stuff. Is that correct?
What about AR glasses?
I might still get a headset for watching movies even if it doesn't support HDR. My previous TV didn't have HDR and the colours still looked amazing on that.
Rest of my questions as per my original post.
[Edit]Even if your current UHD TV is capable of using only about 90% of the DC3 color space, it apparently can apply HDR (HDR 10, Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), and Dolby Vision).
