Batman: Soul Of The Dragon (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Batman is back again in the DCAU with Batman: Soul of the Dragon. I believe this is two releases in a row for the caped crusader, following last year’s A Death In The Family choose your own adventure thing-a-m0-bob. Like Gotham By Gaslight before, Soul of the Dragon is an elseworld story changing things up to try out some different style and substance. And honestly, that’s where its at with me currently. I wish the live action films would get this crazy with Batman and stop taking him so dead seriously. But, don’t get me wrong, Matt Reeves doing Batman excites me a lot and I’m there the moment it arrives. Soul of the Dragon arrives on January 25th on both 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray and regular ‘ol Blu-ray. There’s a load of bonus features plopped onto this as well. You can pre-order from the paid Amazon Associates link below.

The Hobbit: The Motion Picture Trilogy (4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray Review)

Warner Bros has given us our first taste of the Middle Earth saga on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray. Luckily, they’ve decided to start us off with the video and audio. Apparently the extras like the bonus features on the discs as well as sheik packaging will be coming along later this year. Fair enough! I’m not the most gigantic fan of The Lord of the Rings, even though I consider the films great and absolutely admire what Peter Jackson has pulled off, so these early sets probably satisfy my appetite well enough. I reviewed the original trilogy last night and now its onto everybody’s favorite – The Hobbit Trilogy! The films currently are out of stock and went quickly right after they came out last month. However, it appears more are on the way and set to arrive on January 19th! So, if you missed out, you’ll want to get your order in now and not potentially miss another wave of the fantastic little journey. Paid Amazon Associates link available at the end of the review.

Love And Monsters (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Love and Monsters has had itself a bit of a production history. This film has a genesis dating back to 2012. And even after it was made it found itself shifting back and forth. At one point it was supposed to be releases last month. But with the pandemic and people trying out at home premieres for some movies, Love and Monsters founds its to VOD back in October of 2020.  I’m not sure of its financial success from taking that avenue, but the film sure was a bit of a critical and audience darling. Paramount has even opted to put it out on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray for its debut on physical media. It only has a 7.1 audio track and some fluffy bonus materials, but in all honesty, I’d say that’s a pretty decent package for a new movie that’s gone through what Love and Monsters has. Its available now, having been released on January 5th.

Chernobyl 4K Blu-ray Review

Chernobyl made its 4K UHD Blu-ray debut at the beginning of December.

Tenet (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

One of the supposed theatrical events of the year became about as tricky to market, release, and watch as it was to make. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet went from being one of the year’s most anticipated films to a supposed savior of the movie theater experience to something of a muted punchline. Little of this actually reflects on the film’s quality, a globetrotting sci-fi action flick, which I found to be quite enjoyable, and no doubt a work of art when it comes to the technical prowess on display. While many could not experience Tenet in its intended 70mm IMAX experience form, there is, fortunately, a terrific 4K UHD Blu-ray experience that easily delivers the thrilling action ride many are hoping for at home.

The Godfather, Coda: The Death Of Michael Corleone (Blu-ray Review)

One of Paramount’s most exciting releases this year is Francis Ford Coppola’s revisiting of The Godfather, Part III with a brand new cut entitled The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. This is coupled with a theatrical release for the revisited edit (Stay at home, folks). Surprisingly, this didn’t get a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release, nor was it branded on the Paramount Presents line. Luckily, shortly after this announcement, word was given that The Godfather films would be coming to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray next year in a new set. Here’s hoping this revisited edition of the third film is not only included in that set, but also in a true 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray presentation. The Blu-ray for the film released on December 8th, and the Day 1 price is actually pretty darn good just for those curious in checking it out. You can order yourself a copy of the Blu-ray for The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone by using the paid Amazon Associates link below.

Blade (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Blade’s a very nice pick from Warner Bros to push to the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray for an upgrade. It seems sort of random, being that its now turned 22, but anytime is a good time for a 4K Blade. One wishes that they had just done the trilogy and put that out. Maybe this will be like The Matrix a few years back where the first one came out and then months later they did a full set. Though, it they want to put out just the second one and take their time with the third, I’ll be fine and understand. There aren’t any new bonus features, but they have given the film an upgrade in the audio department with a bursting new Atmos track. This was released back on December 1st. You can order using the paid Amazon Associates link following the review.

The Lord Of The Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Warner Bros has lay upon us one of the finest motion picture trilogies of all time as Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy is bestowed upon us. There have been strategies as to how this movies have been rolled out on both DVD and Blu-ray. 4K looks no different. Typically, the theatrical edits of the films have broken the seal with the extended coming later down the line. For 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, we are getting both theatrical and extended right out the gate, but with the bonus features promised to coming sometime next year in 2021. It isn’t complete void of them (See the “Extras” section about that), but physically speaking you are getting straight up 4K discs of the movies here in some standard packaging and that’s it.  Hardcore fandom may want to wait, but for someone like me who enjoys them but who’s just cool with owning the movies, this may be the way to go. The Lord of the Rings, along with The Hobbit films are available now (released December 1st). Continue reading ‘The Lord Of The Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

Coming to America (4K Blu-ray Review)

Coming to America goes on a short list of films I’ve seen over 100 times.  This is a film that captures irreverent humor and imminent sweetness in equal doses.  This is also the first time the world was given the opportunity to see Eddie Murphy at the height of his powers taking on a romantic lead, but also being tasked with the challenge of taking on different roles under still brilliant makeup work.  When the announcement was made that Paramount was bringing some classic Eddie films to 4K and Paramount Presents Blu-ray, this title was the one I was most anxious to check out.  Read my thoughts and appreciations in-depth below and be sure to click the paid links at the end to get your copy of Coming to America!

Beverly Hills Cop (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

AH HA! Earlier this year, Paramount release The Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy to standard Blu-ray. It marked the first time the sequels were released on Blu-ray in the United States and boasted new 4K transfers for every film. We all wondered why not a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release of them, then? Well, Paramount heard us, or the dollars were there for that trilogy set to suggest they knew we loved these movies. So, here we are 11 months later and the original film is getting the upgrade! Hell yeah! I’m okay with that. Its arriving with the same bonus features and audio, just the films 4K restoration is now in its native form. I’m very excited that it is a part of this Eddie Murphy celebration that Paramount is seemingly having on December 1st!

But, let’s kick things off with some Axel F! Pre-order available from the paid Amazon Associates link below.

The New Mutants (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

At long last, the final film of the X-Men series that began during the 20th Century Fox era managed to find its way to a theatrical release. No, The New Mutants was not riding on the best buzz before finally being seen by audiences, nor did the film deliver anything more than a middling end to this iteration of the long-running X-Men Cinematic Universe. It’s a shame, as there was potential to see something neat by bringing a horror element into this world. Still, for those interested and the completists out there, The New Mutants now has a 4K Ultra HD release to dig into. It may not be the ideal film to show off a system with, but the teenage-tinged superhero film does what it can with the format.

Rambo: The Complete SteelBook Collection (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Rambo Complete Collection 4K ReviewRambo: The Complete SteelBook Collection may not be a necessity due to the double dipping nature of it all, but for the right fan it’s a very much appreciated way to house all the Rambo films on 4K Ultra HD Disc in 5 separate collectible steelbook arrangements within one hard shell vessel.  Yes I know that was a long sentence.  However, talking about Rambo movies makes me excited!  The 5-movie set also comes with original art by some of today’s most celebrated illustrators (we’ll show you around in much more detail down below) featuring five uniquely designed steelbooks by Justin Erickson, Ken Taylor, Grzegorz Domaradzki, Vance Kelly, and John Guydo, housed in a large, custom SteelBook case.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise that this the collection features all five action-packed Rambo films including First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rambo III, Rambo, and Rambo: Last Blood.  This was released on October 27th.  We just got our review copy!  And I’m very excited to show you all around.  Read on!

Westworld Season 3: The New World (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Westworld Season 3 4K ReviewYours truly has now covered the first season of HBO’s Westworld, also known as The Maze, on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray over HERE, and the second season, also known as The Door, HERE.  Therefore, it only makes sense to have me lock down the third season, which wears the moniker The New World.  I think Warner Bros. says it best in their press release. Since the award-winning drama series’ debut, Westworld has captivated audiences by exploring the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin with the latest season delving into the questions surrounding free will.  That’s a good setup, but what I am most looking forward to is seeing life outside the park in a future world with some familiar faces here like Evan Rachel Wood.  Truth be told this review of Westworld Season 3 is my first experience with the third season.  So what you’ll read down below will very much be my first impressions.  Ready or not here I come!   Continue reading ‘Westworld Season 3: The New World (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’


It’s A Wonderful Life – Steelbook (4K UHD Blu-ray)

It’s A Wonderful Life is almost 75 years old and continually remains a seminal holiday classic. Primarily, its connection to Christmas keeps it on most schedules come December in the United States. And, like clockwork, every year studios know how to repackage and rerelease it and others like it in new and exciting ways. Hence, last year saw the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray debut of It’s A Wonderful Life from Paramount and this year brings us the steelbook version of those same discs in that set. And it actually tops last year’s release as it has the original poster art on the packaging and includes a poster. That’s pretty awesome in my book! It’s available on November 17th and you can pre-order it using the paid Amazon Associates link below.
