  • Who Directed Poltergeist Anyway? 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray Release Guide - September 18, 2022 - September 24, 2022

    Posted Sun Sep 18, 2022 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     My oh my, where has the month already gone? In the Northern Hemisphere Fall Begins on Thursday. How has this month been to your wallets thus far?

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 18 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc this week, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     This week the 4K disc category is pretty manageable, and there actually are no 'new' releases.

     Import Monday has the same exact movies that Domestic Tuesday but come with two differences, one that the import includes various articles of swag, such as a poster, lobby cards, or other such pack-ins, and two, there is no digital code. Weigh your options here.

     Crawl (Paramount Pictures) gets a Zavvi Exclusive Collector's Edition. A standard edition of Poltergeist, as well as the swag-filled Zavvi Exclusive SteelBook comes from Warner Bros. The Lost Boys has a swag-filled Zavvi Exclusive SteelBook too.

     Domestic Tuesday's counterpart titles include Crawl from Paramount Pictures.

     

     From Warner Bros, Poltergeist gets a standard case release as well as a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook. The Lost Boys carries from last week to this week with a standard case release and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook.

          

     

     Still with Warner Bros, Batman: The Long Halloween gets a deluxe edition. This includes parts 1 & 2 as a single movie.

     

     Old Henry gets a 4K upgrade from Shout Factory.

     

     And finally, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull gets a general release SteelBook with the standard movie poster cover art, just like the predecessors.

     Next week looks infinitely worse than it really is. If you missed out on a lot of SteelBook releases, Sony is reprinting them and offering them up again, so it could still be pretty pricey. But there's a lot, including dead people, summer knowledge, hitmen in Ireland, how dare you, drummer boy, a norse god, and of course HG Wells' best known work.

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray counterpart this week is just Batman: The Long Halloween, in case you had not bought the previous two releases.

     From Universal Pictures, an odd combination of genres, Comedy/Mystery/Thriller Vengeance debuts to disc this week.

     

     Anime highlights include Dragon Ball Super: Complete Series [Collector's SteelBook], Girls und Panzer das Finale - Part 3 and SHADOWS HOUSE - The Complete Season.

     TV On Disc: From Sony, Outlander: Season 6 comes as a standard edition and as a Limited Collector's Edition. From CBS, Walker: Season One (2021). Great time to put the Chuck Norris series on blu-ray (hint hint).

     

     Somewhere I read that Bruce Willis had retired, but it feels like every week has another film release or two with him in it. From Vertical Entertainment, this week it is in Wrong Place.

     Criterion Collection this week is offering Exotica, a title considered a psychological thriller. If that's not your thing, maybe Le Corbeau, a French drama/war film is.

     

     Looking for another shark movie? The Reef: Stalked comes via RLJ Entertainment. You know you wanted another one.

     The next classic film from Powerhouse Films' Indicator Series comes out this week with Orders To Kill.

     Honorable Mention: Out of print Twilight Time titles get another go, this time via Sandpiper Pictures. Look for Woody Allen's Bananas, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But were afraid to ask) and Love and Death.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Raw Deal 4K [Import] starring Arnold Schwarzenegger has been pushed from this week to October 24th. This one has yet to even get a blu-ray release in the U.S., we can only hope right?

     Jordan Peele's Nope has been made official for disc release on October 25th.

     Criterion Collection has announced their December titles. Call me lost, I really cannot say for sure that I know any of them.

     Halo: Season One is getting a blu-ray, 4K disc as well as a 4K disc SteelBook edition November 15th. TV on 4K disc is always a good thing!

  • Jordan Peele's Sci-fi Thriller Nope Invades 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray on October 25

    Posted Wed Sep 14, 2022 at 02:01 PM PDT by

    The science fiction/horror from Academy Award winner Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) stars Oscar-winner winner Daniel Kaluuya, Emmy-winner Keke Palmer, Oscar-nominee Steven Yeun, and Brandon Perea from The OA will hit home video on October 25 with an earlier arrivial on digital September 20.  

    Fans of the film will find over 90 minutes of never-before-seen bonus features including a 56-minute immersive documentary (not included on the DVD) and Dolby Atmos soundtrack.

    Jordan Peele reimagines the summer movie with NOPE, an expansive epic of uncanny science fiction. Following their father’s shocking death, Hollywood animal wrangler OJ (Kaluuya) and his sister Emerald (Palmer) begin observing unexplained phenomena on their vast Southern California ranch that leads them down an obsessive rabbit hole as they plot attempts to capture the mystery on camera. Along with a former child star turned family theme park ringmaster (Yeun) who neighbors the siblings, the pair’s efforts to chase the spectacle soon bring terrifying consequences and unimaginable horror. The result is a complex social thriller that unpacks the seeds of violence, risk and opportunism that are inseparable from the romanticized history of the American West … and from show business itself.

  • Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray Release Guide - September 11, 2022 - September 17, 2022

    Posted Sun Sep 11, 2022 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     Anyone that follows some of the trade sites for disc media probably read that 4K discs just experienced their highest sales share ever. In a market that is contracting, that is overall good news. With all the good releases this month, what are you going to get? Are we going to set a new record this month too?

    Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 17 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc this week, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     By volume, this week is about the same as last week for 4K titles, but there appears to be more variety. Starting with import Monday first, Zavvi has an exclusive SteelBook of the 2021 action film Nobody, and just like so many other UK releases, it includes a bit of swag and a side load slip case to hold it all.

     There are two New Releases on Tuesday's docket, both titles were short-notice announcements. And even though September was already pretty crowded, the studios still decided to go for it anyway. First from Warner Bros., the 2022 biopic film Elvis. I've still not seen a Tom Hanks movie that I have disliked. Sure, he is not Elvis, but he's a supporting role.

     

     From Disney/Pixar comes Lightyear, and surprisingly this one has only two options, a standard release and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook. No Target, No Walmart, and best I can tell, Zavvi is identical to Best Buy's. Maybe I will save a few bucks here. (When I can't decide, I tend to overspend.)

     

     On to catalog titles, and probably the best way to sort them out is by label. From Paramount, the steamy thriller Fatal Attraction starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. Well known slasher pic Friday the 13th debuts to 4K disc as well. The completionist in me says bring them all, but I sort of suspect they will do them one-by-one like the Scream films. The Addams Family (1991) also get a SteelBook repackage.

     

     Universal has got a single entry this week, Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. Which member of the Python cast is your favourite? <-- See what I did there?

     Sony Pictures brings 80's comedy Real Genius to 4K disc. Fond memories back when this came out have caused me to preorder this one!

     

     Still in the same decade, Warner Bros. offers up The Lost Boys as a standard edition and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook. Moved to September 20th.

     Last, but certainly not least, Shout Select has the '86 drama/war film Platoon, and under the Scream Factory label, John Carpenter's The Fog, offered up in a standard package and a general release Limited Edition SteelBook Edition.

     

     Next week, voracious reptiles, literally channeling a TV, Batman sees pumpkins, Henry has aged and more.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Let's do what we do every week, list and blu-ray counterparts of the above 4K release titles. From Warner Bros, the 2022 biopic Elvis sees blu-ray/dvd/digital combo pack. And from Disney/Pixar, Lightyear also sees the same type of combo pack. There are no retailer exclusives on the latter.

     Sony MOD is releasing 28 Days (2000) starring Sandra Bullock, Caught (1996) and A Weekend with Lulu.

     Under the standard Sony Pictures label comes Where the Crawdads Sing, based on the mystery novel of the same name.

     

     Warner Archive has got Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940) for us this week.

     Cool World gets a long overdue release under the Shout Select label.

     

     Criterion Collectors should be looking for Take Out this week.

     TV on disc includes Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Season 3 from RLJ and  Lucifer: The Sixth & Final Season from Warner Bros.

     From Vertical Entertainment, the 2022 horror film Abandoned streets on Tuesday. In the drama category, look for The Forgiven (2021).  LionsGate has Cave Rescue, which is, as you guess, based on the event that happened recently in Thailand.

     

     Anime highlights include BACK ARROW - Part 2 and Saiyuki Gaiden: Complete Collection.

     Honorable mention: George A. Romero's The Amusement Park comes to us via RLJ Entertainment/Shudder Films.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Announcements keep happening and listings keep popping up, that is the way things should be.

     Kino Lorber has indicated a 4K disc release for Needful Things will be happening soon, likely late November is my guess.

     Paramount Presents' next title will be Blue Hawaii on 4K disc, the original listing indicated November 15th.

     To Kill a Mockingbird will be getting a 4K disc AND a 4K disc giftset on October 11th from Universal. I hope this is a sign of things to come, time and time again the UK gets a giftset with swag such as theater cards, book, etc and the US gets just a disc in a case. Hope you're all as excited as I am about this option.

     Universal is releasing 8 Mile to 4K disc and an exclusive SteelBook on the GRUV shop on November 8th.

    September 2022 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Shopping Guide

    Who needs food or transportation when there are so many great movies coming to 4K Ultra HD?

    As Charles Dickens once said... "It was the best of times... it was the worst of times." if you're a physical media collector aiming to expand the number of titles on your shelf, the Fall/Winter release season is certainly the best of times. However, if you're looking to squirrel away some monies for Holiday gifts for other people, well... you can always do that thing where you give someone the gift you want for yourself, and then when they look at that import 4K of Cannibal Holocaust you can be like "oh if you don't want it I'll take it!" That way it's kinda like giving a gift to yourself through another person! 

    September is always the month where Studios and Boutique Labels begin to crash their biggest and best titles onto fans, and this year is no different. If anything because of the Pandemic and the slow return to theaters it's even better (or worse depending on your finances). This month sees some major heavy hitters come to bat so we better jump right in.

If this fall and holiday season is anything like last year, there may be some last-minute switch-ups with the release schedule, we already saw that with The Funhouse and this month was supposed to see Army of Darkness come out at the same time as Evil Dead (2013) so we'll see what happens. If any changes do occur, we'll update our listings and this article ASAP. 

    Until next time, thanks again for the pre-orders. They really do go a long way towards keeping our little operation up and running. Happy Collecting!

  • Beam Us Up! - High-Def Digest's 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray Release Guide September 4, 2022 - September 10, 2022

    Posted Sun Sep 4, 2022 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     First actual full week of September is upon us, pumpkin spice has been in the air a week or three, in our food and in our beer. We kind of did let you know that it is going to be a big month for 4K disc shoppers, this week is just a warm-up.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 16 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc this week, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     Let's roll! Actually, this week is not too bad for 4K shoppers, unless you are a big Star Trek fan. For me, that means it's bad! But before we do that, let's mention the single new release title first. Just like other recent titles from them, Universal chose to announce this one with practically zero notice. I haven't seen it myself but I have all of the others in the franchise on 4K disc. I have read that it was censored in China and they have also added a "Crime doesn't pay" message at the end, I'm referring to Minions: The Rise of Gru.

     

     Moving on to what is dubbed as "the final frontier", there are plenty'o Star Trek releases this week. Because it's logical to start at the beginning, let's start with Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The most complete edition is dubbed The Director's Edition The Complete Adventure and includes the theatrical, director's and the 1983 longer TV editions. For a breakdown of all three versions and their features, visit the link to read the review, then you can order it from there. If you're looking to add the Director's Edition which includes a new Atmos mix, a new Dolby Vision pass, and you do not care for the TV edition, the release simply labeled The Director's Edition is for you.

     

     

     Did you buy the original 4-movie collection and simply want Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country? Yup, these links will send you that direction. As much as I hate to double-dip, mathematically, it might make sense to buy Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection to get everything in one package (minus the TV version of The Motion Picture). Prefer singles for all the movies? Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home can be bought that way too, and all feature the movie poster artwork.

     

     Scream Factory has The Funhouse (1981) to help get in the mood for Halloween (and pumpkin spice).

     

     If you collect Criterion releases, or you're looking for a good flick,  Blow Out starring John Travolta can be part of your collection Tuesday.

     

     Semi-double-dip of 3:10 to Yuma comes out, but as one of those Best Buy Exclusive slipcover style SteelBooks. A Quiet Place - 2-Movie Collection is also available, two for the price of one, right?

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Thirty or so domestic release blu-ray titles this week. Just like we do every week, let's list the blu-ray counterparts of the above titles first.

     From Universal, Minions: The Rise of Gru, alternately there is a Target Exclusive to choose from, and lastly from Paramount, Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Director's Edition), Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

     Kind of a blu-ray counterpart, but new, Minions: 2-Movie Collection also comes via Universal. The 2022 comedy Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is also available this week from Universal Pictures.

     

     LionsGate's entry this week is in the Thriller category with Paradise Highway.

     TV on disc this week includes Peacemaker: The Complete First Season (no order link yet, delayed??) and Young Sheldon: The Complete Fifth Season, both via Warner Bros.

     The Warner Archive label releases Rachel, Rachel this week as well.

     Anime highlights include Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Set 13 (The Vessel), Magical Warfare: Complete Collection and RE-MAIN - The Complete Season.

     

     Honorable mention: Two out of print Vincent Price gems get reissued, with slipcovers this go round from Kino Lorber, they are The Oblong Box and Twice-Told Tales.

     Not leaving it there, Kino presents three 3-D Film Archive restorations packaged together and labeled as Paravision Dreams: The Golden Age 3-D Films of Pine and Thomas. Check out our review, buy your copy today. Kino Lorber keeps finding ways to take my money.

     Imprint Films' 'August' releases are available this Friday from Amazon;

     

     Sandpiper Pictures will be reissuing multiple Woody Allen titles in October/November, they're all titles that are all out of print Twilight Time releases.

     The cult favorite Pulp Fiction appears on track for a 4K release, word is it will be December 6th.

     Multiple Christmas Favorites will be getting 4K discs in November, check out our article here. Titles thus far include National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, The Polar Express, The Original Christmas Classics and Elf. Polar Express will also be getting a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook.

     Saturday Night Fever, and a bunch of Shout Factory titles have been announced for 4K as well, check out the article here.  Titles include The Company of Wolves, Rollerball, Used Cars, and Piranha.

    And that's all the news that's fit to print! While this is certainly a set that's going to appeal to some die-hard Halloween fans, it's nice to see that each film is getting a new Dolby Vision transfer, as well as some new bonus features are thrown into the mix so it's not just a repackaging of the content from the big Blu-ray set Scream Factory pumped out all those years ago. 

    Thank you for all of your pre-orders! They really do go a long way towards keeping our little operation up and running.
