On June 26th, your mission – should you choose to accept – will be to upgrade your collection with all five films on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray. Why So Blu will be reviewing each one.

Black Lightning: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

The DC television universe has been pretty much the opposite of its film universe in almost every way. People seemingly are wanting more, more, more. And this year, they’ve added a new member to the family of shows; Black Lightning. Unlike the other new characters that they were quick to immerse into a crossover or at least a guest spot on another show’s episode, they kept Jefferson Pierce’s first season to his own little world and played in a self contained sandbox. Now, its coming to Blu-ray as have his cohorts. Warner Bros is sticking with the script here, and giving the show the usual bells and whistles that the other shows have been given (Maybe a little more here as there as some “intro” kinda things they have a their disposal). You’ll be able to grab it when it hits shelves June 26th. Continue reading ‘Black Lightning: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)’

Unsane (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane made its buzz by being a horror movie shot using only an iPhone. No, its not the first film to utilize the day-to-day device to make a film and Soderbergh’s not the first prestigious director to test his hand at it (I believe Chan Wook Park was first). However, Unsane is probably the first high profile iPhone film and one with the biggest and widest mainstream theatrical release. Granted, the film didn’t turn into some modest hit, but who knows how inexpensive the film probably was (It didn’t even cross ten million dollars domestically and barely over worldwide). I expect those curious will finally check it out now on home video and it may be a find for those who had never heard of it when it releases on June 19th.

Forrest Gump (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

And randomly, Paramount has decided to flip over to us the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray upgrade of Best Picture winner Forrest Gump. There’s no milestone the film is hitting this year, but they seem to be mixing in their Best Picture winning films (Previously Gladiator and Braveheart) in with the genre/franchise films they tend to lean on. Nevertheless its not like it isn’t a film that you wouldn’t think would be one coming eventually. But, here we are pretty early on with a 4K Ultra-HD release of the film that nabbed Tom Hanks his second Oscar statue (As Sabretooth would say “Back to back!”). While the film features new audio and video, the extras remain the same (They are pretty thorough, don’t worry). You’ll be able to pick this on up on June 12th!

Love, Simon (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Love, Simon came out during week five of the Black Panther box office phenomenon that rocketed off our cinematic year. It managed to be a pretty solid hit, but some might wonder if it couldn’t have maybe done some bigger business and been a little more of an event had Wakanda fever not seemed like the only option. Love, Simon was seen by many as a possible LGTBQ cinematic breakthrough hit. Which, in all honesty, at $40 million on a small budget during the spring season (If $48 million for Lady Bird is hailed a triumph, then so is this), it kinda was. With that kind of business in almost tripling the opening weekend budget, maybe we can look at Love, Simon as a launching point if others seem to increase the demand, interest and revenue at the box office. Anyhow, it’ll now reach probably more with its home video life. Its even coming to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray on June 12th. You can pre-order the film by clicking Amazon link below.

Death Wish (Blu-ray Review)

Every film series that ran more into the franchise territory with multitudes of sequels gets dug up and given an attempt in today’s climate. As much as Death Wish was Charles Bronson, its not above another blowing out the candles on a tombstone and making a wish (Okay, that was bad, but whatever…). This project loomed around the studios for a few years and then actually was made, but then delayed to avoid becoming topical with a real world tragedy only to find itself topical due to a real world tragedy. Fox just sucked it up and put the damn thing out to the anticipated poor reviews and box office intake (It sailed a few million past its reported budget, though). If interested and you didn’t feel like giving it theater dollars, the Eli Roth and Bruce Willis team up will be available on Blu-ray June 5th. Continue reading ‘Death Wish (Blu-ray Review)’

Celebrate 25 Years Of SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE With A Brand New Blu-ray Release June 26th!

This summer, a beloved romantic comedy that’s remained fresh and charming for 25 years celebrates its silver anniversary. Written and directed by the iconic Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally…Julie & Julia), SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE stars the incomparable romantic duo of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (Joe Vs. the VolcanoYou’ve Got Mail) in the captivating tale of a recently widowed man whose son calls a radio talk-show on Christmas Eve in an attempt to find his father a new wife. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone called the film “Sublime … the hippest, frankest and funniest date movie around … Director Nora Ephron’s a major talent with a wicked gift for tickling the funny bone, exposing hidden truths and then, just when you’re not looking, slamming you in the solar plexus.” Continue reading ‘Celebrate 25 Years Of SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE With A Brand New Blu-ray Release June 26th!’

Ninja III: The Domination – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory is doing one of their first ever upgrades (Or as some as you may refer to it, “double dip”) with the Collector’s Edition of Ninja III: The Domination. The 1984 Cannon Films cult classic enjoyed a standard release with a commentary back in 2013 that has proven to be one of their most popular titles. With five years time, its good as any to revisit it and beef it up to Collector’s Edition status. This new release features some new key artwork to differentiate it of course, but also a brand new 4K transfer of the film to go along with brand new interviews, including star Lucinda Dickey. They’ve put the work in to make this worth the purchase again. And you’ll want to make sure you pre-order it to have it when it releases on June 12th.
