The Hitman’s Bodyguard (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Coming in as a surprise hit at the end of a pretty disappointing August this past summer was Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson buddy comedy, The Hitman’s Bodyguard. It was kind of a surprise, with many thinking Logan Lucky (Review for that 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release coming soon) would probably do better. But, this fun little throwback wound up taking in over 75 million box office dollars on a mere 30 million dollar budget. And in this day and age, it had the rarity of holding on to the top spot at the box office for 3 straight weeks until the IT phenomenon launch and made more in one weekend than this movie did in its entire run. Anywho, you’ll be able to check this one out on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray when it hits stores/online/the grocery November 21st. Just in time for some turkey.

Night of the Living Dead, Silence of the Lambs & More Coming to The Criterion Collection February 2018

Next February, George Romero’s revolutionary horror classic Night of the Living Dead comes lurching from the grave, in a major new edition featuring an astonishing new 4K restoration of the film, never-before-seen footage from the production, and hordes of interviews and programs exploring the incredible story of the making of this trailblazing independent film. No less chilling is Jonathan Demme’s eerily intimate The Silence of the Lambs, starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in a serial-killer scenario like no other. This celebrated thriller will return to the Criterion Collection in a stunning new 4K restoration along with extensive supplements, including our long-out-of-print commentary featuring Demme, Hopkins, and Foster. There’s also Satyajit Ray’s richly observed character study The Hero, starring Bengali screen icon Uttam Kumar as a matinee idol reckoning with the pitfalls of fame, in a new 2K transfer. Another thespian takes the stage in An Actor’s Revenge, Kon Ichikawa’s kabuki-inspired spectacle about a female impersonator’s quest for vengeance, appearing in a new 4K restoration. And there’s more: Tony Richardson’s uproarious multi-Oscar-winning literary adaptation Tom Jones, starring Albert Finney, will make its Blu-ray debut in an edition featuring new 4K restorations of both the original theatrical version of the film and Richardson’s 1989 director’s cut, as well as extensive interviews on the film’s production and influence. And Louis Malle’s mesmerizing debut Elevator to the Gallows, a clockwork thriller with a legendary Miles Davis score, will arrive on Blu-ray in a new 2K restoration.

Silent Night, Deadly Night – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

It would be an understatement to say that a brand new Blu-ray release of Silent Night, Deadly Night wasn’t something that was overdue. A 30th anniversary edition was lazily put out by Anchor Bay three years ago. It was ripped to shreds by Blu-ray enthusiasts and fans, but I found it to be “fine” (I was just happy the damn thing was FINALLY out). But, even I was ecstatic that people who really do give a damn about the “naughty” rampage of Santa Billy got ahold of the film to do a new release. Those people being Scream Factory and Justin Beahm’s Reverend Entertainment. FINALLY this movie was in some great hands. Beyond this 2-disc set, they also offered a limited edition with a Billy NECA figurine to go with it which, if you hurry, you can STILL nab yourself one (CLICK HERE).  Fans should be excited that its a new transfer (Something fans wanted) and the usual brand new retrospective documentaries and interviews. A must have for the holidays! Continue reading ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)’

Now, you too can own and watch the movie when it releases on November 14th.  Be sure you go ahead and pre-order the film by clicking the Amazon link at the end of this review.

The Paul Naschy Collection II (Blu-ray Review)

While I didn’t get to review it earlier in the year (I’m not sure if any official copies were sent out for review), Scream Factory released a box set dedicated to legendary Spanish horror actor/writer/director Paul Naschy.  That set was built and constructed in the vein of their previous three Vincent Price Collection efforts. Luckily, like those sets, they are continuing on with a second Collection of Naschy films from his rather lengthy and dedicated career in the horror genre.  Personally, I’m not familiar with him, so I’m excited to dig into this set after all I’ve heard. He’s billed as Spain’s answer to Lon Chaney, having played many of the classic monsters (Wolfman, Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, The Mummy and others) as well as his own. Coming in just in time for the holidays, this set from Scream factory will release on November 14th. Pre-order below to own this unique Collector’s item.

Westworld Season One: The Maze (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Westworld Season 1 4K ReviewGiven the fact that when this series originally aired earlier this year I pretty much had to watch each episode twice due to many slow lulls that put me to sleep like a baby probably doesn’t make me the best suited reviewer to tackle Westworld: Season One. However, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like what I saw either because I did.  It was just on so late at night, I was exhausted and this combo leaves me with the attention span of a kitten.  I’m joking of course because I truly am stoked for Westworld: Season One being the very first HBO title on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  Besides Planet Earth II I guess you could also call HBO’s Westworld the very first title on the 4K UHD format period.  That’s not a shabby title to own.  You can tell that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is equally excited about this crowning jewel on 4K too.  “We are thrilled to release the first season of HBO’s critically-acclaimed and most watched new series Westworld in 4K Ultra HD with HDR,” said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President, Television Marketing, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “Fans will devour this beautifully crafted series – a perfect candidate to receive the fully immersive 4K HDR experience along with limited edition collectable packaging and all-new special features.”  I couldn’t agree more with Rosemary’s statements so that’s why I’m very eager to tackle this review already down below.

The Emoji Movie (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Bad ideas, bad ideas, bad ideas. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are the guys who tend to take bad ideas and make them into great things. Though, with their firing from Solo: A Star Wars Story, I’m not so sure of even that any more. They had nothing to do with The Emoji Movie, but I imagine if they did, I probably would have found interest in this movie’s release. Instead, like many people, its an eye-roller for me. Although, look, I get it. I understand there can be dollars to be made here. I understand it’ll probably be strictly for people who are younger than ten years old. I’m also a parent. I also have kids who wanted to see this movie, which magically we didn’t make it to the movie theater to see. But, here it is, on the glorious 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format for us to consume for the very first time, in the confines of our own home. Will I survive? I don’t know. Its available now, as Sony made this release available on the format on October 24th.  Continue reading ‘The Emoji Movie (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

The Dark Tower (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

For so many damn years, there’s been nonstop chatter about Stephen King’s series of novels dubbed “The Dark Tower”. These dealt with a gunslinger characters and some sort of super ambitious premise that everyone demanded to be put into a movie. King fans kept telling you that this was going to be the film of all films or HBO series of all HBO series if they ever adapted it. Many names would get attached over the years. Projects would stop, they would start. It almost felt like this urban legend that it would ever happen. And then, finally, something budged off the ground. The excitement came in the casting of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, but then the trailer and marketing came and nobody seemed to care, fans seemed to not have any defense. It was one of the summer’s biggest disappointments. I didn’t see the film, I’ve never read any of the books. So, here I am as the casual observer, going in super clean to give you the review of the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release, made available October 31st!
