• Happy Mother's Day - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide May 14, 2023

    Posted Sun May 14, 2023 at 09:00 AM PDT by

     Happy Mother's Day... or as some calendars say, Mothers Day. Whichever is correct, hope you have a good one.

     With a trio of Ant-Man releases, it's ant season all around, both on the small screen and on my kitchen counters, plus Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune, Star Trek, as well as a remake of a classic, and a classic, and that's just the 4K category.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 50 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of May 14th - May 20th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     The 4K category is ramping up after a few weeks of calm, the next peak will be May 30th. There are no notable Monday imports so let's roll with domestic Tuesday.

     From the MCU and Disney, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, with three options to pick from. We can choose from a standard edition, a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook and lastly a Walmart Exclusive. Standard Disney Disclaimer: Run time >2 hours, BD66 disc with HDR10 on the disc and Dolby Vision on the streaming version only.

     

     

     New Guy Ritchie film Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, starring Jason Statham, an action comedy at that.

     

     If you waited for the 4K, that is great, but if you did not preorder, you might be out of luck. I'm referring to the SteelBook release of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - Season One. A standard edition is coming next month though, and there's always the possibility of other retailers (NOT Amazon) having it in stock.

     

     Paramount Pictures gives us the 2003 version of The Italian Job. Kino Lorber did the original 1969 release back in January. Also from Paramount, a non-SteelBook/standard release for Shooter.

     

     And closing out the category, Kino Lorber brings us the original 1974 release of The Longest Yard. Does this mean Paramount will flop when Kino flips and give us the remake in 4 months?

     

     Next week looks similar to this, with just different titles. A trio of Shazam releases, Creed III, and a few classics.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray counterparts of the above titles, Disney releases Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, LionsGate releases Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre and Kino Lorber offers up The Longest Yard (1974).

     New comedy from LionsGate with Moving On.

     

     Currently on track for Tuesday, Hong Kong action films In the Line of Duty: I - IV from 88 Films.

     Anime Highlights include Aharen-san wa Hakarenai: The Complete Season, The Dawn of the Witch: The Complete Season and The Greatest Demon Lord is Reborn as a Typical Nobody: The Complete Season.

     

     TV on disc this week has only one title, Walker: Season Two.

     From MVD's Rewind Collection, L.A. Wars.

     New Wave Thriller from Criterion Collection titled Targets.

     

     Warner Bros. has Max Fleischer's Superman this week. There have been reports though that this release might have some issues, so do proceed with caution.

     Shout! Factory is bringing us The Magic Flute (2023).

     

     Honorable Mention: The IP Man Universe gets another film from Well Go USA with Young Ip Man: Crisis Time.

     Next week in the blu-ray categry it's all but a trickle.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Warner Bros has announced plans for National Lampoon's Vacation to 4K disc, with a street date of June 27. Again, absent from the US market is the Collector's Edition, you need to shop the UK market for that.

     Kino Lorber has revealed that To Live and Die in L.A. is coming to blu-ray and 4K disc on July 18th.

  • Is it a Bird? Nope. Is it a Plane? Nope - It's The 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide May 7, 2023

    Posted Sun May 7, 2023 at 09:00 AM PDT by

     From Superman to M. Night Shyamalan, there are a few 4K choices this week. Which iteration of Superman are you buying this week, or did you import the singles? As far as blu-ray, a few more than last week, but still kind of below average by volume. The Summer Movie Season is just a couple of weeks away, which film will you be anxiously awaiting a home release for?

    Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 49 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of May 7th - May 13th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     Just a couple of skus this week, but I'm sure most of us will be buying at least one of them.

     New title first, M. Night Shyamalan's Knock at the Cabin gets two options, a standard edition and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook.

     

     On to catalog titles starting with Criterion Collection, bringing us Japanese Cinema with Branded to Kill.

     

     Warner Bros. gives us another box set with Superman: 5-Film Collection, which includes Superman 1-4, with two cuts of Superman II. This set is available as a standard edition and as an Amazon Exclusive SteelBook set (which currently shows sold out).

     

     Next week a trio of Ant-Man releases, Star Trek SteelBook, the original Longest Yard and more.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Only one Blu-ray counterpart this week, Knock at the Cabin.

     If you did not pick up the 4K/blu-ray combo pack a few weeks ago, MPI Media Group this week has All Quiet on the Western Front on blu-ray. Kind of odd to split the releases, but I'm sure they have their reasons.

     TV on disc includes NCIS Hawaii: Season One and Yellowstone: Season 5 Part 1.

     

     Anime highlights include Aoashi - Season 1 Part 1, The Demon Girl Next Door - Season 2 Complete Collection, Restaurant to Another World: Season 2, which is available as a standard edition and as a limited edition and Unicorn Wars. The last title does not have an English dub which is too bad, if it did I would likely pick it up.

     

     Want some martial arts action? Arrow has Hand of Death and Shout Factory has The Tiger Cage Collection.

     

     Sandpiper Pictures, best known for reissuing of out of print Twilight Time releases, offering Absolute Beginners and I Could Go On Singing this week.

     Worthy of mention. Having not seen it, just letting our readers know that Children of the Corn (2020) debuts on blu-ray this week. I have questions on this. Is it a remake? Is it borrowing the name only? Is it enjoyable on its own?

     

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Some of the Shout/Scream Factory July releases have been revealed. For 4K they are World War Z, Upgrade, The Burning, Cult of Chucky, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. For blu-ray so far, Team America: World Police.

     Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has an official street date of May 30th.

     John Wick Chapter 4 has a street date of June 13. That one has a plethora of retailer exclusives.

  • Those Wings Of Desire Are Deeply Impacting Hanging Rock - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide April 30, 2023

    Posted Sun Apr 30, 2023 at 09:00 AM PDT by
    Deep Impact - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review Morgan Freeman Tea Leoni Mimi Leder

     A notable import, a modern classic distaster, three Disney 100 steels and more highlight the 4K category. Between 4K and blu-ray though, it's a semi-light week, giving you time to replenish your funds just a little bit, May 30th is the next big release date.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 48 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of April 30th - May 6th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     There are no new releases this week. Kicking off import Monday first, Second Sight offers Picnic at Hanging Rock with two available options, a standard edition and a limited edition. Standard disclaimed here, the blu-ray is likely region B locked. And you might be able to locate these at Diabolik DVD if using Amazon UK is not an option for you.

     

     Moving on to domestic Tuesday releases, Paramount offers up a modern classic disaster with Deep Impact. Now we just need a good release of Armageddon from that era and I'm set.

     

     Shout! Factory has another Universal Pictures catalog title with Skyline. Not to sound ungrateful, but is Universal prohibiting them from having slipcovers from these 4K upgrades?

     Criterion brings Wings of Desire to 4K in the U.S.. As it always goes, I choose to import it, two weeks after it arrives in my possession, the studio in question announces it as part of their upcoming release slate. My most recent acquisition is the trilogy of Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen and Angel Has Fallen. Any day now LionsGate will announce this trilogy for the USA. You're Welcome.

     

     The next batch of "Disney 100" Best Buy Exclusive SteelBooks arrive this week, they are Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back  and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

     Next week the Superman Collection arrives (after a delay), someone Knocks at the Cabin and Criterion brings in a Japanese action thriller. Remember, May 30th will be the biggest release day this month, be ready.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray counterparts? There are none this week,  Picnic at Hanging Rock was already done by Criterion in 2019 and 2014, Wings of Desire was also a Criterion release back in '09, all of the other films have had multiple releases over the years. Let's move on to new stuff.

     New comedy from Paramount with 80 for Brady.

     

     Universal also has new comedy this week, this one is titled Champions. Do we see a pattern here? (comedy/sports) Also from Uni, drama/romance Of an Age.

     

     Warner Archive Collection this week has Border Incident and Clash By Night.

     

     Anime highlights include just a couple, Fate/Stay Night: Complete Collection, Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie: The Complete Season and Tomodachi Game: The Complete Season.

     LionsGate has Supercell this week on blu-ray. Maybe a missed opportunity, neither of the Warner Bros tornado films are on 4K disc, this might have been a hot seller for disaster-flick hungry collectors.

     

     Honorable Mention: Kino Lorber collectors look for Film Noir: The Dark Side of Cinema XIII this week, it includes the films Spy Hunt (1950), The Night Runner (1957) and Step Down to Terror (1958).

     There are two Imprint Films Collections and a single title release available Friday via Amazon US (however the last one just got a 4K release 2 weeks ago in the US).

     

    Next week this category picks up the volume, ever so slightly.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Too early to tell but it probably is finalized, looks like Evil Dead Rise will be getting a blu-ray release in the US, but if you want the 4K (as of press time) look to the UK, hopefully this changes. Nothing official is announced yet so it could.

     Early indicators for National Lampoon's Vacation coming to 4K disc show a June 27th street date, with the UK also getting a collector's edition as well. The US market has been passed over for special editions and gift sets for quite awhile now, so I expect this one to be cemented in place.

     Paramount has finalized details for The Truman Show's 4K release, which will be on July 4th.

  • 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide April 23, 2023 - The Case of the Empty Wallet

    Posted Sun Apr 23, 2023 at 09:00 AM PDT by

     From a RWBY / Justice League crossover to Jackie Chan, this week offers a variety of titles that should satiate most movie buffs, and that's just the 4K category. Troubled waters ahead though, it's blu-ray's turn to assault our wallets.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 47 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of April 23rd - April 29th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

     

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

      New release first, from Warner Bros and DC Animation, Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part One. Quite surprised to not see a Best Buy SteelBook on this one.

     

     Severin Films has the general release for Accion Mutante this week.

     A little Jackie Chan action with Police Story 3: Supercop from 88 Films. If you want all three films in 4K at this time you will need to import them from Eureka UK.

     

     There's a pair of vampire releases from Indicator Series this week, The Shiver of the Vampires and Two Orphan Vampires.

     

     Making a 4K debut, as a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook, The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) comes to us via LionsGate.

     

     Criterion Collection this week offers some fresh (2022) comedy with Triangle of Sadness.

     

     Mentioned last week as a new titles announcement, Turbine Media has got three different editions of Naked Lunch for purchase. Check out the article to see the links.

     Next week, Second Sight's Picnic at Hanging Rock, Paramount makes a Deep Impact, Star Wars Steels, Wings of Desire hits domestic markets because I bought the import, and more.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray wallet assault engages fist first with a lot of blu-ray counterparts. Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part One comes via Warner Bros, Accion Mutante comes via Severin, Police Story 3: Supercop comes via 88 Films, Powerhouse/Indicator brings us The Shiver of the Vampires and Two Orphan Vampires, and Criterion Collection offers up Triangle of Sadness. Wow, that literally was every title above, minus one.

     New drama from LionsGate with Jesus Revolution.

     TV on disc fan? Throw some more cash at these! Cheers: The Complete Series via Paramount and CBS Television, The Green Hornet (1940), His Dark Materials: The Complete Third Season, Primal: The Complete Second Season and Star Trek: Lower Decks - Season Three.

     

     From Arrow Video, Y2K horror titled Lovers Lane. Alternately, you can get the Exclusive Slipcover edition direct from Arrow.

     Anime highlights include Chivalry of a Failed Knight - Complete Collection [SteelBook], GATE: Complete Collection [SteelBook], Gunbuster - The Complete OVA series, New Gods: Yang Jian and Tweeny Witches: Complete Collection.

     

     Warner Archive Collection tugs at you as well with a pair of James Cagney titles with A Lion Is in the Streets and The Strawberry Blonde, One Way Passage with William Powell and Kay Francis, crime/drama Safe in Hell, and finally, Storm Warning with Ronald Reagan and Doris Day.

     

     Sandpiper Pictures, known for their reprints of out of print Twilight Time titles, this week has The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, The Fantasticks, Kid Galahad and Stanley & Iris.

     Shout Factory releases The Jackie Chan Collection, Vol. 2 (1983 - 1993) after a brief delay.

     

     Criterion's blu-ray set this week is Small Axe - Five Films by Steve McQueen.

     

     You get a short reprieve next week in the blu-ray category, recharge your funds.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     There were no major announcements last week. Imprint Films announced their July slate which includes a peculiar release, a 4K among a blu-ray box collection, Paramount announced Mission Impossible SteelBooks, Warner Archive announced their May releases. Everything else is onesie twosie. No Avatar or Abyss announcement, just a slow week in general.

  • 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide April 16, 2023 - Please Do Not Feed The Bears!

    Posted Sun Apr 16, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     Whether you're looking for a Henry Fonda classic, a well known James Dean film or Al Pacino in a crime/drama, there are a fair amount of catalog titles to choose from this week.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 46 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of April 16th - April 22nd, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     As mentioned above, there are no New Releases this week, but a few gems worth picking up nevertheless. Let's get through the list by boutique label.

     Import Monday begins with Arrow Video's Naked Lunch. The general release is a traditional 'fat pack' as I call it, and then there is an Original Artwork Slipcase Limited Edition available via Arrow Video's site only. If you choose to hold off for the Turbine Media releases,  those street on April 28th. I opted for the Jean-Baptiste Chuat artwork, anyone that knows me knows I am a traditionalist cover art kind of guy, so this is quite a deviation from the norm.

     On to Tuesday Domestic releases, first from Warner Bros., the delayed release of Rebel Without a Cause comes to us as a standard edition and as a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook.

     

     Still with Warner Bros., the animated release All-Star Superman.

     Kino Lorber is next with two totally different crime dramas, first we get 12 Angry Men, a classic courtroom drama with a "Must Own" rating according to or own David Krauss.

     

     Next up from Kino Lorber is Serpico, a biographical crime drama starring Al Pacino.

     

     From Scream Factory, The Haunting of Julia.

     

     Finally, from Criterion Collection, Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal.

     

     Next week, what a RWBY / Justice League crossover looks like, (maybe) more Jackie Chan with Police Story 3, a pair of Indicator vampire flicks and more.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray counterpart of the above titles, the region B edition of Naked Lunch.

     The rest of this category is a bit slow. As far as units sold, the biggest title of the week is probably Cocaine Bear from Universal Pictures. Is it big enough to merit a 4K disc? Probably. A UK release by MediumRare Entertainment has just been announced for May 29 if you wanna wait. Also from Universal, look for Marlowe, a crime/thriller starring Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger and Jessica Lange.

     

     TV on disc this week includes Blondie: The Complete Television Series and Midsomer Murders: Series 23.

     From Warner Bros, Magic Mike's Last Dance.

     

     Just one single Anime title of mention this week, Ya Boy Kongming!: Complete Collection.

     Sandpiper Pictures, the crew behind reissuing out of print Twilight Time releases this week has Bulletproof Monk, The Quiet American and Year of the Comet.

     LionsGate's thriller of the week is Righteous Thieves. Adding an action element to the thriller and you get Transfusion. (Neither of these films star Bruce Willis).

     

     Next week's blu-ray category looks like walletmageddon all over again, even for those that pick up 4K stuff first!

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     The Criterion Collection has revealed their July 2023 titles, check out the article here. Sorry to achnowledge that I know none of them, and I won't pretend to based on just talent name familiarity.

     As we mentioned above, Turbine Media has announced 3 different media books for David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch with a street date of April 28th. I did take one for the team by ordering an import, so a U.S. release no doubt is coming very soon.

     Paramount Pictures will be releasing The Firm and Vanilla Sky to 4K disc on June 20th.

     Unless things change, the Super Mario movie will be streeting June 6th to blu-ray, 4K and 4K SteelBook.

  • 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide April 9, 2023 - Did Someone Press Pause?

    Posted Sun Apr 9, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     Throughout pretty much all of the calendar year so far, we have had a lot of 4K releases every single week. This week is without a doubt, the slowest release week of all, the tap is just a bit of a trickle for both formats. Let's take this pause to refill our wallets a bit.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 45 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of April 9th - April 15th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases:

     There are TWO titles this week, both of which are considered catalog titles. First from Paramount, Flashdance gets a 4K upgrade. The standard edition dons a golden shower cover art while the SteelBook has a more traditional poster cover. Although the SteelBook is not listed as a Best Buy Exclusive, it seems to not be orderable via Amazon.

         

     

     From Criterion, the 4K upgrade of The Fisher King. Jeff Bridges, Robin Williams, why not?

     

     Next week we return to a normal release pattern with the delayed Rebel Without a Cause, Serpico, 12 Angry Men and more.

     

    Blu-ray releases:

     There are no blu-ray counterparts of the above titles this week as they have already been released in the past.

     New(ish) drama from Sony titled Living. And for a drama/romance under the Sony Pictures Classics label, One Fine Morning.

     

     Anime highlights include Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These: Season Three, One Piece - Collection 31 and To Love Ru: The Complete Series.

     

     No disrespect to '88' Films and the great releases they produce, but after the obligatory '88' day delay, Gorgeous (Jackie Chan) appears to be on track for release this week.

     

     Arrow Video is also in on the Jackie Chan train with Heart of Dragon. Alternately you can get the original artwork edition direct from Arrow Video. Shout Factory delayed their Jackie Chan release by two weeks, talk about missed opportunity.

     

     Generally I don't publicize reissues, but Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses celebrates 20 years with two special releases, a standard (but swag-filled) edition and a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook.

     Honorable mention: Boutique label Shout! Factory has the crime/drama/horror Bless the Child.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Shazam! Fury of the Gods has a release date of May 23rd, it includes several retailer exclusives.

     Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has a release date of May 16th, also with a couple of retailer exclusives available.

     Shout! Factory's various labels have revealed much of their June slate. In no particular order they include Creepshow 4K, Creepshow III, Motel Hell 4K, Private Parts (1972), The Strangler and Shaw Brothers Classics: Volume One.

  • Crank Gets a Best Buy Exclusive 4K UHD SteelBook May 23

    Posted Tue Mar 28, 2023 at 02:53 PM PDT by

    Jason Statham's Chev Chelios is back in a Crank Best Buy exclusive 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray + Blu-ray + SteelBook on May 23.

    It appears the Best Buy exclusive Crank 4K UHD Blu-ray + Blu-ray + SteelBook is just a collectible packaging upgrade. This has been the case with Lionsgate reissues so don't expect anything new in the overall package. For those who haven't picked it up, the SteelBook is damned slick looking and at that price point it's a bargain for stylish artwork.

    Crank - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook

    There are a thousand ways to raise your adrenaline, and today hit man Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) will need every one! He has one hour to settle the score and say goodbye to his girl and go out with a little style. The only question is, will he stay alive long enough to see it happen.

    Here's the bonus features:

    • Shooting Crank
    • The Stunts of Crank
    • Pushing Crank
    • Crank @ COMIC-CON (4K only)
    • More Stories from Crank (4K only)



     

    As with the previous release, the 4K UHD will also include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.  The suggested retail price is $27.99 although it's currently running on sale for $21.99

  • Walletmageddon Is Here - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide March 26, 2023

    Posted Sun Mar 26, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     Warning! The following article contains wallet-busting content of biblical proportions. Proceed with caution.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 43 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 26th - April 1st, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     Import Monday is pretty busy as well.  Second Sight has George A. Romero's Martin, which is available as a standard release or as a Limited Edition release. We've provided Amazon UK alternate links for these titles, and last I checked, they were still available at Diabolik DVD.

     Now available with an English cover and English menus, Pirates of The Caribbean 1-5 4K box set comes to the UK. If I decide to import this, you can guarantee it will get a US announcement. Should I take one for the team?

     

     Closing out import Monday, Two Japanese Artwork Steelbooks will be available, Rampage and Ready Player One. They're not Zavvi exclusives, so if you are locked out from ordering due to Zavvi's current shipping policies, use the alternate links to Amazon UK instead.

     

     Alright, now on to domestic Tuesday with new releases first. From Netflix via MPI, All Quiet on the Western Front gets a media-book style release. While it does have an English dub in DTS-HD MA 5.1, the Atmos mix is exclusively German. With all that, I've still got it on preorder. Here's to hoping for considerably higher bitrates than the streaming version.

     

     From Warner Bros. and DC animation, Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham.

     The next BBC nature feature, Frozen Planet II comes to us via Warner Bros/BBC.

     

     LionsGate's best known genre is the action/thriller and they usually include Bruce Willis, but this go round we have Gerard Butler in Plane.

     

     And now on to catalog titles. If you are a member of the Disney Movie Club, the animated classic Cinderella (1950) is available and shipping. The general release will be August 1st elsewhere. Bippity-boppety-boo!

     The killer doll genre Dead Silence (James Wan) gets a 4K release via Scream Factory. Will this be the last time I express frustration for M3GAN only getting a blu-ray and not 4K disc? Probably not.

     

     Sticking with Scream Factory, The Exorcist III gets a release too. The rumor mill says the original Exorcist film is being prepped for some time this summer. I've seen a SteelBook cover art that seemed real, so it's likely.

     

     And via the Shout Factory label, another semi-recent Universal film gets a 4K upgrade, I'm referring to Wanted (2008).

     Kino Lorber has upgraded Rawhead Rex to 4K, making triple-dippers like me happy everywhere. But seriously, I'm sure it is going to be an excellent release, maybe we can move our 4K disc to our SteelBooks.

     

     The general release for Sidekicks (Chuck Norris) debuts this week. The original deluxe version is still available direct from Vinegar Syndrome's site. Site exclusives for this week include Freeway II: Confessions of a Trickbaby and Primal Rage, with general releases usually 2 months out.

     

     Severin Films has Dario Argento's The Five Days available this week.

     Closing the category out, G.I. Joe: Retaliation gets a SteelBook from Paramount.

     Next week offers up a little reprieve, Star Trek:TNG movies, go for a Midnight Run, Cool Hand Luke and two other Warner Classics.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     Blu-ray counterparts of the above titles, the import of George A. Romero's Martin, domestic titles Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham and Plane each get their respective release. If you want Frozen Planet II you will need to get the combo pack above.

     New drama/thriller from Sony titled Missing. Keeping with Sony, under the Sony Pictures Classics line, new drama titled The Son.

     

     Anime highlights include Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest: Season 2, available as a standard edition and a limited edition, Attack on Titan - Final Season - Part 2, available as a standard edition and a limited edition, Deemo: Memorial Keys, Mieruko-chan - The Complete Season, available as a standard edition and a limited edition and Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon - Season 2, Part 1, available as a standard edition and a limited edition.

     Arrow Video has Black Sunday, the 1977 crime/drama. For Shawscope style action/comedy, Knockabout.

     TV on disc this week includes Chucky: Season Two, Dawson's Creek: The Complete Series, Doctor Who: William Hartnell - Complete Season Two, Gaslit: The Complete Limited Series, Maigret: Season Four, and lastly,  Rick and Morty: Season 6, available as a standard edition and a SteelBook edition. Just kidding on the 'lastly' part, import Friday you can also scoop up Rawhide: The Complete First Season, a Via Vision AU release.

     

     Warner Bros. animated Duck Dodgers: The Complete Series comes out this week.

     Here's a new genre, Anti-Romantic Comedy, the film is Chilly Scenes of Winter and it's from Criterion. Intriguing.

     

     Honorable mention - Severin Films has their next box-set ready for purchase, titled Violent Streets: The Umberto Lenzi/Tomas Milian Collection, our own Sam Cohen says it's recommended.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Too late to be included in this week's releases category, A24 has announced The Lighthouse [Collector's Edition] for blu-ray and 4K THIS WEEK from the A24 shop. Still waiting for "X", "Pearl" and "Fall" to hit 4K, but hey, do check it out.

     Kino Lorber has detailed The Longest Yard (1974) for blu-ray and 4K release, with a May 16th street date.

  • Spring Has Sprung! - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide March 19, 2023

    Posted Sun Mar 19, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     This week's 4K calendar is basically owned by Paramount. Excluding the last staggered Rocky steel, names like Wes Craven, Brad Pitt, and a recognizable movie from the 80s with a dragon in it are all brought to you by the same studio. And of course there are a few blu-rays worthy of checking out too. And yes, Spring begins officially on Monday, YAY!

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 42 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 19th - March 25th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

     

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     New release of the week is that other film about Hollywood, titled Babylon. This one is available as a standard edition and as a SteelBook edition. (If you haven't followed, The Fabelmans might easily be confused to those that have not seen either film yet as the descriptions of each talk about early Hollywood film.)

     

     Moving on to catalog titles, Dragonslayer also gets the same release structure, a standard edition and a SteelBook edition. The toughest choice here will be which one do you want most, they've both got some pretty iconic 80s poster/cover art. If you can't decide, get one of each! (Maybe that's the 80's geek in me talking right there!)

     

     Wes Craven gets the 'Paramount Presents' treatment this week with Red Eye. Wes Craven, 4K, thriller, yes please!

     

     The 4th and final (for now) staggered 4K SteelBook of the Rocky Collection comes out this week, Rocky IV.

     Walletmageddon is coming next week! Netflix's All Quiet on the Western Front, Gerard Butler's Plane, Chuck Norris is a Sidekick, several boutique releases, and so much more. Consider the imports on the calender too and it is going to be a wallet-buster, prepare yourself!

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     The Paramount blu-ray counterparts of the above titles this week include Babylon and Dragonslayer, both as standard editons.

     Overall, the blu-ray category is pretty light this week, but there's plenty to ponder.

     From Criterion, David Lynch's Inland Empire.

     

     From Universal and Blumhouse, M3GAN. This release has a gorier cut, and according to Bryan's review, though it is more enjoyable, it is not the ultimate cut we are thinking of. The only other thing missing is a 4K disc option.

     

     TV on disc includes Doc Martin: Series 10 and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - Season One, which is available as a standard editon and a SteelBook Edition. Keep in mind that 4K has been announced for Trek with a May 16th street date.

     

     How about a horror movie from Vertical Entertainment titled Lullaby?

     Comedy from LionsGate titled Seriously Red, a story about a Dolly Parton impersonator.

     

     Anime highlights include Final Examination Kujira, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie, which is available as a standard edition, a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook and a Lenticular/Rightstuf Exclusive edition, Kill Me Baby - Complete Collection, Levius, One Piece: Season Twelve - Voyage Three and SAIYUKI RELOAD -ZEROIN- Complete Collection.

     Worthy of mentioning, Shout Factory has classic comedy this week with Crazy People (Dudley Moore, Daryl Hannah) and Critical Condition (Richard Pryor). Add a dash of horror to your comedy and you get Dr. Giggles.

     Don't feel left out of the upcoming 4K typhoon, next week is walletmageddon for blu-ray releases as well.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Criterion Collection's June slate has been revealed. Look for The Rules of the Game 4K, Time Bandits 4K and more. Check out the news story for all the deets.

     HBO's The Last of Us Season One gets a 4K and blu-ray release July 18th. There have been images of overseas SteelBooks spotted, so one would expect the same here.

     Another James Wan film that's not M3GAN will be getting a 4K/SteelBook,  Insidious will be available on June 20th from Sony Pictures.

     M. Night Shyamalan's Knock at the Cabin Arrives on 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray May 9th.

  • Ain't No Clowning Around - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide March 12, 2023

    Posted Sun Mar 12, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by

     Whether you're looking for a classic Dreamworks animated release, a sci-fi disaster movie, one of Walter Hill's best works, or more Rocky steel, this week has a bit for everyone, and just like last week, it's at a moderate pace. Two weeks to prepare ourselves for another case of walletmageddon.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 41 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 12th - March 18th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     So there are no new release 4K titles this week, but there are a few catalog titles to snag up.

     First, from Dreamworks animation, The Prince of Egypt gets a 4K release. Little by little we are seeing their catalog from that era come out. What's next, Shrek 3 or Road to El Dorado?

     

     The sci-fi disaster mentioned above is in the form of The Core, brought to us by Paramount. What a perfect time, the earth's core has been in the news very recently, which in reality will not result in what we are seeing in this film.

     

     One of Walter Hill's best known works, Streets of Fire gets a Shout Select release this week with a 3-disc combo pack.

     

     Rocky III is the next SteelBook to be released in Best Buy's spaced out Rocky releases, this means that Rocky IV will be next week.

     Phenomena gets a special edition release this week, just in case you missed out on the limited edition.

     Next week is almost exclusively owned by Paramount, the last of the initial batch of Rocky SteelBooks, that other movie (Babylon) that I keep confusing with The Fabelmans, Wes Craven's Red Eye gets the 'Paramount Presents' treatment and the long awaited Dragonslayer with two hard to decide choices (get em both!)

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     There are no blu-ray counterparts of the above releases. There are twice as many titles in this category compared to last week to pick from though, here are the highlights.

     If there are two single titles in the blu-ray category that get title of the week (or at least, the most attention), it's got to be A Man Called Otto starring Tom Hanks, brought to us by Sony Pictures,

     

     and The Whale from LionsGate. With neither getting a 4K disc release, it has me scratching my head a bit.

     

     Drama/thriller this week from LionsGate titled Alice, Darling.

     TV on disc includes All Creatures Great and Small - Season 3, Highway to Heaven: The Complete Series, The Lost Symbol: The Complete Series and The Walking Dead: The Complete Eleventh Season.

     John Woo directed Last Hurrah for Chivalry is available from Criterion Collection.

     

     Anime highlights include Blue Thermal, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero and Sing a Bit of Harmony - Movie and WATAMOTE: No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!.

     Busy week for the Warner Archive Collection, Confessions of a Nazi Spy, Flamingo Road, Neptune's Daughter and The Prince and the Showgirl.

     

     Honorable Mention: Ronin Flix is now offering the general release of Jet Li Double Feature: The Legend of Fong Sai Yuk 1 & 2. This was previously available direct from their own store front.

     Friday import releases include Hammer Horror Vol. 1 and Pumping Iron.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     No major activity this past week, but we didn't say no activity at all. Creed III already has preorder links for the 4K and blu-ray releases, and I have spotted artwork for an import SteelBook, which is done in the same style as the Rocky steels at Best Buy. So it is probable to see the same one offered at Best Buy shortly.

     Kino Lorber will be offering Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) to 4K this year, guessing late May.

     James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water has a streaming date of March 28th. This is a sign that a physical announcement is coming soon. Disney and Universal have both announced titles literally two weeks before street date. Sometimes retailers are receiving product with street dates on the box and the announcement has yet to be made. Will it be 4K, will it have Dolby Vision, will it be on a BD100 disc? How much closer are we to those other two movies we have seen hinted at over the past 10 years?

     Sony Pictures' next Dolby Vision/SteelBook upgrade will be Cliffhanger, with a street date of May 30th.

  • Time to Catch Your Breath - 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide March 5, 2023

    Posted Sun Mar 5, 2023 at 12:00 PM PST by

     Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, oh my! Sprinkle in some Joan Crawford and it's a quality week. After last week, it's time to catch a breath and prepare ourselves for the next wave. At this point it looks like April is lining up to be another huge month.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 41 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 5th - March 11th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     There are zero, none, nada, zilch new releases this week. Brand new to 4K though is Mildred Pierce (1945), a classic melodrama crime mystery starring Joan Crawford, brought to us via Criterion.

     

     Sony reissues a pair of 4Ks as SteelBooks, and just like before, a Dolby Vision upgrade on each release. First, Air Force One, the action/thriller starring Harrison Ford. And second, The Mask of Zorro starring Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

        

     

     Closing out the category, I did mention Best Buy was spacing out their Rocky SteelBooks over 4 weeks, this week you can get Rocky II.

     

     Next week, the next Rocky, a hard to get out of print film debuts to 4K and one of director Walter Hill's finest.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     There are no blu-ray counterparts of the above titles releasing this week. Let's just get to the highlights for the rest of the category.

     New drama release from Universal with Women Talking.

     

     The Warner Archive has drama/romance Camille starring and Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor (I). Also this week look for a bipoic about Broadway star Lillian Roth with I'll Cry Tomorrow, starring Susan Hayward.

     

     Who doesn't want a Christmas movie in March? RLJ & Shudder Originals has Christmas Bloody Christmas this week. Another Christmas movie with Santa on a killing spree, worth a look I s'pose.

     Horror release The House That Screamed comes via Arrow Video (previously released by Scream Factory).

     

     Three more VHS Retro Look titles from Mill Creek, Fear, The Fan and Problem Child.

     Anime highlights include Heaven Official's Blessing - Season 1, which comes in a Standard Edition and as a Limited Edition, and Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation - Season 1 Part 2.

     

     Honorable Mention: This one goes out to those that want everything Cecil B. DeMille, Kino Lorber releases The Crusades this week.

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Warner Bros. has officially detailed the Superman 5-Film Collection for 4K release on April 18th. What you get is Superman I - IV, with two cuts of Superman II. Amazon also is offering the collection as a SteelBook set.

     Sandpiper Pictures has added several more blu-ray titles to their April 25th slate, they are The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, The Fantasticks, Kid Galahad and Stanley & Iris.   The latter three were all previously available on the Twilight Time label.

     Shout! Factory has revealed several titles for May, in no particular order they are Conquest Of Space / I Married A Monster From Outer Space (Double Feature), The Morning After (1986), The Tiger Cage Collection, Skyline 4K, Brotherhood Of The Wolf 4K, Highwaymen and The Haunting 4K. This seems a little light to me, I really would't be surprised to see more titles added in the next week or so, definitely some Anime.

     Paramount will be releasing Deep Impact to 4K disc on May 2nd.

     LionsGate is  releasing The Man Who Fell to Earth to 4K Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook on April 25th.

  • Empty Out Your Wallet! 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide Feb 26, 2023

    Posted Sat Feb 25, 2023 at 12:00 PM PST by

     Naval aviators of the 'forgotten war',  Antonio Banderas' best known animated character, a star studded crime/thriller, two more Laikas, Rocky Balboa, Denzel Washington trains a rookie and more. This week we might just need to extend our line of credit or empty our savings account, there's a lot of something for everyone.

     Welcome to Volume 3 Episode 39 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of Febrary 26th - March 4th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

     If you want everything 4K, your video rack is going to add quite a few titles. Excluding the import, there are a total of 17 skus. It's not as bad when you do a break down, but it's still rough.

     For new releases, first let's visit the "Forgotten War" with another 'first' in Devotion, a true story about the first black Naval aviator. Partaking in the Korean war, two elite pilots turn the tide in a brutal battle.

     

     The other new release this week stars Antonio Banderas in a reprisal role with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.

     

     Moving right along to catalog titles, sorted by distributor, let's begin with Kino Lorber and Marathon Man, a crime/thriller with the likes of Dustin Hoffman, Laurence Olivier and Roy Scheider.

     

     LionsGate has a double-dip of sense, the John Wick Stash Book Collection – SteelBook Box Set which is only available at Best Buy.

     Finally no need to import it, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre comes to us via the MPI Media Group. Available as a standard edition and as a SteelBook edition.

     

     Shout Factory's next batch of Laika Studios releases is available this Tuesday. Look for The Boxtrolls, available as a Standard edition and as a SteelBook edition, and Kubo and the Two Strings, also available as a Standard edition and a SteelBook edition. Thus far these new SteelBooks have had some incredible artwork.

     

      Last, but certainly not least comes Warner Bros., Rocky leads off the pack with Rocky: The Knockout Collection (I-IV), part IV having both the theatrical and director's ultimate cut. If you are for the SteelBooks, Best Buy is sprinkling each film over the next three weeks, this week you get the original film, Rocky.

     

     Also from Warner, Training Day gets a standard edition, a Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook, and if you want to import a much nicer version, a Zavvi Exclusive Premium SteelBook. The latter might not be available to ship directly as of press date as Zavvi is making some changes to how they operate.

     

     From Vinegar Syndrome, the general release of From Beyond. The limited edition is no longer available from their site.

     Import Friday brings Possessor Uncut edition, from Turbine media.

     Next week has more Rocky, Sony reissues two more SteelBooks with Dolby Vision upgrades and Criterion Collection has a classic melodrama.

     

    Blu-ray releases-

     The same holds true for blu-ray releases this week, your financial well being is in danger.

     Blu-ray counterparts of the above category first, Devotion comes to us from Paramount and for Puss in Boots, we get a standard edition, a Walmart Exclusive and the two-movie collection.

     Our favorite action actor Bruce Willis returns this week with the third film of the trilogy, Detective Knight: Independence, which comes to us via LionsGate. In a different genre, think fantasy/horror,  B'Twixt Now and Sunrise.

     

     From Warner Bros, late 60s animated release The Adventures of Batman: The Complete Collection debuts on blu-ray.

     Sony Pictures has the Whitney Houston biopic Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody.

     

     Criterion Collection has Hollywood Shuffle and Two Films By Marguerite Duras.

     

     If you want to see a Western done Hong kong style, try out Millionaires’ Express from Arrow Video.

     Anime highlights include a Fist of the North Star feature, Ghost Stories - Complete Collection, Jujutsu Kaisen: Season 1 Part 1, which is available as a Standard Edition and as a Limited Edition, Revisions: Complete Collection and Sailor Moon R: Complete Second Season.

     Honorable Mention:  A few weeks ago we saw a handful of 'Disney 100' blu-ray releases at Walmart, which had a special cover art and a limited edition pin. I spotted the same ones (minus the limited edition pin) at Best Buy as well. This week gives us the next wave that includes 101 Dalmatians, The Aristocats, Frozen II, The Jungle Book, Lady and the Tramp, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Tangled, Wreck it Ralph and Zootopia. No doubt the same editions will be at Best Buy and the Disney movie club.

     Amazon U.S. has the February Imprint Films titles available on Friday, they are:

     

     

     

    Notable announcements from last week:

     Paramount has officially announced the Star Trek Next Generation films for 4K release on April 4th. There will also be remastered blu-rays available the same day.

     Warner Bros. will be releasing Superman I - IV to 4K disc on April 18th. It will include two cuts of Superman II. Also available will be the collection, as an Amazon Exclusive SteelBook.

     LionsGate will be releasing Plane (starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter) to 4K and blu-ray on March 28th.
