Now that the scary rush of horror and genre films is over, we can brace ourselves for the impact of a mass holiday-timed releases. We're getting classics we've always wanted on disc, we're getting old favorites seeing their first 4K releases, and we're also getting a whole swath of new releases. The holidays are always a crazy time of year for big exciting releases and November 2023 is no different. Hope you've got some spare change in those couch cushions because this one is going to get pricy.
Starting out the month, we're getting everything from one of the best 80s thrillers starring Harrison Ford to a couple of the funniest Christmas comedies ever made. On top of that there are plenty of retail exclusives to get excited for.
From demonic nuns to classic 70s cinema getting a criterion release to Spielberg's first film (made for television that is) and one of the greatest sports movies ever all are coming to 4K. From true drama classics to big action to one of the silliest YA franchises, there's a lot to get for yourself, or keep in mind when shopping for gifts.
Things don't slow down much in the third week of the month. We see the return of everyone's favorite killer Jigsaw just in time for your Thanksgiving feast on top of one of Harrison Ford's best films, another Scorsese great, and one of the best WWII prison films along with the second half of the infamous Barbenheimer!
As the final week before the big December holiday shopping push, this frame tends to be the busiest filled with major new releases and tantalizing catalog upgrades. While we're getting some great stuff here, this final weekend of the month is actually a little quiet. But the reason is probably because that first weekend of December is going to be a real wallet-buster. Until then some great horror, science fiction, drama, and thrillers will have to keep you busy.
That is it for this month's 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray shopping guide. Keep in mind all release dates are tentative and sometimes titles get bumped back, but then we can see some last-minute additions like last month with Barbie. Until next time, thank you for all of your pre-orders, they go a long way towards keeping our little show up and running.
