Prometheus (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

With the release of Alien: Covenant on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, its predecessor Prometheus easily lent itself to piggy backing with it on release date. A pretty simple upgrade for the 2012 Ridley Scott film. A film at odds with its audience, I find Prometheus a film I’m always eager and happy to revisit for another look. I’d like to thank Brian for ponying this one over to me, as he was originally going to cover this one, but things fell the way they did and he offered it to me.  He did cover the original Blu-ray release of the film, so if you like his Alien: Covenant review from last week and would like to go back and check out his full thoughts on Prometheus, you can go back and read them HERE. Prometheus is available now on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray (Street date was August 15th) and you can pre-order from the link below (If its working, if not, be patient, it’ll probably come back soon).

Supergirl: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

Last year, of all the Arrow-verse superhero shows, Supergirl was the highest rated in its inaugural season. But, unlike the others, it was on boring old dull CBS which pulls in the biggest network ratings. While great for the DC shows, it was poor for CBS. Plus it was an interesting show, so of course they had to pull it. Luckily, it took a little bit, but it logically found its right home on the CW where it became their second highest rated show. Unfortunately, since production moved to Canada, it had to jettison one of its strengths in Calista Flockhart. But, better to have the show with minimum contributions from her than no show at all. Supergirl’s second season comes to Blu-ray on August 22nd and you can pre-order this nice little set by clicking the Amazon link following this review.

Cabin in the Woods (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Cabin in the Woods 4K ReviewThe Cabin in the Woods is one of those films that proves you should never judge any book by its cover or so to speak.  This is one of those stories for me that’s so much deeper than what appears on the surface.  What’s on the surface you ask?  Well in regards to this movie I see it as your everyday cliche horror/slasher film that we all grew up on the 80’s complete with jocks, sexy chicks and good ole Rated-R gore.  However under the surface it’s so much more.  In fact by the flick’s fiery ending its flipped completely over and insane as can be (in a very good way).  I can go on and on about how much I adore this 2012 gem, but rest assured we’ll cover all that down below.  For the time being I am just stoked that The Cabin in the Woods is getting the red carpet treatment on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray this September 5th.  However, before we get into the UHD Disc’s vitals let’s chat about why this little horror story is so damn scrumptious.

Red (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

We have a sorta fascination with older, aged action heroes nowadays without really knowing it. People have flocked to Liam Neeson movies and there seems to be some interest still there when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger do a movie. Its come a long way since an aged Roger Moore was vine swinging in India or hanging off a fire engine in San Francisco. Well, one series (Based on a comic book) decided to embrace all that, with the action comedy Red. Lionsgate is continue to consistently dig back into some of its catalog from this decade and make the 4K jump with them. Red and its sequel, Red 2, are next in line, coming out September 5th. If you’re interested in snagging a copy to have when it hits shelves, click on the Amazon link below. Continue reading ‘Red (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

As is every summer, Marvel kicks it off with its latest and greatest. 2017 saw the hotly anticipated to their surprise hit from a few years back, the (At the time) dice rolling Guardians of the Galaxy.  And of course the film was a big damn hit.  James Gunn has shown he really has a handle on the source material and the film universe and characters he’s crafting as well. Its fantastic news that he will be returning for a third volume of the adventures of Star Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Drax and what will be Adolescent Groot. Also fantastic new, James Gunn has willed his way and gotten his wish to have the film released on the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format, making it Disney’s first. The director campaigned for it all throughout his post production and press tour, having shot the film in 8K and not wanting his blasting of colors in the film to go to waste.

Baywatch: Extended Cut (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Baywatch 4K ReviewIf you’re of my generation, who didn’t watch television’s Baywatch growing up?  I mean of course we all watched for Knight Rider‘s David Hasselhoff and beach babes like Pamela Anderson, Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleech and Carmen Electra were just icing on the cake.  Sure (wink, wink).  Baywatch is not only part of our pop culture, but like The Terminator 1 and 2 to most people, part of our beloved childhood too.  So when word of a reboot surfaced regarding turning the nostalgic show into a motion picture I feared the absolute worst.  Yes I feared my childhood would be butchered and erased just like 2015’s Terminator: Genisys did to it.  Ugh!  However, rest assured there was a silver lining in all of this.  Baywatch would unite onscreen two of the hottest comedic stars with some pretty rad beach babes too.  Of course I’m talking about involvement from the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron to the big busted Alexandra Daddario.  What?  LOL.  I don’t know how else to describe her besides those bright, Blu-ray eyes she has.  So I was saying yeah Baywatch….

The Philadelphia Story, Le Samouraï & More Coming to The Criterion Collection in November 2017

This November, golden-age Hollywood’s wittiest romantic comedy will join the Criterion Collection: The Philadelphia Story, starring Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart, all at the height of their dazzling charms. Our edition will feature a new 4K restoration, along with new supplements exploring the film’s production, which launched Hepburn back to stardom thanks largely to her own shrewd orchestrations. Next up, Donna Deitch’s swooning love story Desert Hearts – a landmark in queer cinema and a triumph of independent filmmaking – will appear in a special edition featuring a new, restored 4K digital transfer and interviews in which the cast and crew revisit the film’s production and discuss its impact three decades later. Terry Gilliam stepped out from the ranks of Monty Python for his solo-directing debut, Jabberwocky, which stars Michael Palin as a clueless bumpkin traipsing through a medieval kingdom terrorized by a fearsome dragon. Our edition marks the film’s first appearance on Blu-ray, in a new 4K restoration with special features including new interviews with the cast and crew. And that’s not all: Jean-Pierre Melville’s ice-cold gangster classic Le samouraï, starring Alain Delon, will now be on Blu-ray in a new high-definition digital restoration.

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler Open THE HOUSE On Blu-ray This October

Get lit, win big. Then go home to the kids when “The House” arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 10. The comedy stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler in their first big-screen pairing. Andrew Jay Cohen makes his feature film directorial debut with “The House.” When Scott and Kate Johansen’s daughter gets into the college of her dreams it’s cause for celebration. That is, until Scott and Kate (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) learn that the scholarship they were counting on didn’t come through, and they’re now on the hook for tuition they can’t begin to afford. With the help of their friend and neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas)—also in need of a major payday—they decide to open an illegal casino in his suburban house, risking everything together on a Vegas-style bacchanal where money flows, inhibitions are checked at the door, and all bets are off.

Snatched (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Here I am with another second week of summer film with an underwhelming box office return in 2017. Snatched wasn’t the bomb King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was, but I’m pretty sure people were it expecting it to do a lot better. Its reviews were right about there with King Arthur (though a little better). Personally, I was looking forward to this one, but didn’t get a change to see it in the theater due to…I dunno, life and stuff probably. But, now its here and on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray for me to check out in the comfort of my own home theater.  You can pick this one up now (Sorry for the late review, it didn’t show up til after it’d be released) as it streeted back on August 8th. And if you don’t have the film, pre-order using the Amazon link below. Continue reading ‘Snatched (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was a hotly anticipated show leading up to its debut last year on the CW. It was going to be the “team up” show, consisting of a lot of characters from Flash and Arrow, plus their own. It began with some crossing over in two original shows and then set asail (or aspace) on its own. The first season was that of a learning curve as it was hit and miss, had some incredibly worthless characters and a blah villain. However, learn they did as the second season was an incredible bounce back. It was one of the top shows in the universe, maybe have the best season of all four last year. They figured their characters and their storytelling out and wound up delivering pretty much every week. Relive that season and gear up for the third one with the Blu-ray set from Warner Bros, coming August 15th. Continue reading ‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)’

Ash Vs Evil Dead: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

Never in my wildest dreams as a youngin’ could I have imagined being able to watch an ruthless, balls out, fully unhinged and not held back Evil Dead show once a week for ten weeks every year.  The fourth adventure of Ashley Williams had always been thought to be this long lost movie, but in 2015, we were gift it as a Starz TV series, which is where it would fare even better, getting to be its complete self. And the best part? Its both true to the series, good and a hit show (For Starz). The third season is coming around this year, but relive the adventure of the second season (You don’t need to catch up, do you? You’re watching this, right?) when Starz/Anchor Bay bring it to Blu-ray on August 22nd! Continue reading ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)’

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  The summer’s first flat out failure. Coming as no surprise as even its release date was one that usually spells doom and gloom (2nd week of summer, aside from 2009 Star Trek, never prevails for a tentpole). Plus, in the early going on, just nobody seemed to be interested in this one at all. Meant to be a franchise starter with the Knights of the Round Table, it looks like we won’t seeing Gallahad: Legend of the Chaste in theaters anytime soon. Its another big budget underperformer for Guy Ritchie and more proof that Charlie Hunnam is not a box office draw (Say what you will, and this has nothing to do with talent, the dollars speak for themselves). But, since nobody saw it in the theater and I’m sure many were at least curious, its here for home video and streaming consumption on August 8th.
