The Last Of Sheila (Blu-ray Review)

My Blu-ray Wishlist article is right around the corner, and its fitting that I’m writing on one of my most wanted titles over the years; 1973’s The Last of Sheila. The Anthony Perkins and Stephen Sondheim scripted murder mystery at sea is an often overlooked and forgotten little gem in the Agatha Christie vein that I think many would rather enjoy. If you liked something like Rian Johnson’s Knives Out in recent years, surely give this a shot. Warner Archive Collection is bringing this beautifully restored transfer to Blu-ray for the first time (Was releases on November 9th) with the trailer and a commentary done by three of the cast members as a bonus feature. Is this a mystery you were able to solve on first watch? Does it hold together? Revisit the film or check it out for the very first time by ordering yourself a copy from the paid Amazon Associates link that follows the review.

Vanilla Sky – Paramount Presents (Blu-ray Review)

Cameron Crowe’s American adaptation of Abre Los Ojos, Vanilla Sky, took a while to finally debut on the Blu-ray format. Now, six years later for its 20th anniversary, it’s returning again. The Paramount Presents line is one I’ve continually sung praises of, and its releasing better versions of films that have been out before is one of the many reasons why. While there’s not too much in the way of new bonus material (There was already a lot), they’ve improved in the most important area. It features a brand new 4K transfer that was supervised by Cameron Crowe, himself. This also being the 3rd film of Cameron Crowe introduced into the “Presents” line, following Almost Famous and Elizabethtown before it. Vanilla Sky arrives on November 16th. You can order a copy for yourself using the paid Amazon Associates link following the review.

Night Shift (Blu-ray Review)

Warner Archive Collection released a sweet lot of horror titles back in October. While late to the game on reviewing them, the review copies weren’t sent out til later on. In the current climate of home video physical media distributing, there have been many a fulfilment center delay on titles each and every month. So that’s not too surprising at the end of the day. Ron Howard’s Night Shift is probably the highest profile film in the month’s lot. While it doesn’t come with anything but a trailer, the Henry Winkler, Michael Keaton and Shelley Long starring film comes with a pretty impressive new HD master that needs to be seen. This is its first time on Blu-ray with a new 2021 1080p master, lossless audio and a trailer. The disc was released back on October 5th, but its available to order now from the paid Amazon Associates link below.
