Coming 2 America (Blu-ray Review)

Akeem and Semmi returning to America was a dream a lot of Coming to America fans dreamed of.  From 1988 on, the original film became a cultural icon, showing a sweeter side of Eddie Murphy, and opening up the door for Murphy to become a multiple character innovator in many films to follow.  So, how […]

Beverly Hills Cop II: 35th Anniversary Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Paramount has had an interesting roll out here of the Beverly Hills Cop movies on the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format. About two and half years ago they rolled out the 3-Movie Collection with 4K restorations, but on standard Blu-ray. That following December, the original came out standalone on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray alongside a Coming To […]

Another 48 Hrs – Paramount Presents (Blu-ray Review)

July’s contribution to the Paramount Presents line is kind of a beautiful two-fer. One is a film that had a prior release with a subpart transfer and the other has never been on Blu-ray before. And together, they both make and complete a series of film. Walter Hill’s 48 Hrs and Another 48 Hrs starring Nick Nolte and […]

Shrek: 20th Anniversary Edition (4K Blu-ray Review)

It’s sort of mind mind-boggling to think that Shrek was released 20 years ago.  I remember it’s DVD release, picking it up at Costco, and loving how much they included in special features, and giving folks without HDTVs the option for a Pan and Scan version too.  The thoughtfulness of that package was why I […]

Trading Places (Paramount Presents) (Blu-ray Review)

Paramount Presents is fast becoming a favorite catalog collection for me. Some releases are out of the box while others are lovingly reissued in a more deluxe way. While sometimes the features leave a little to be desired, often the new masters make the discs well worth the purchase. With Eddie Murphy’s classics Trading Places […]

The Golden Child – Paramount Presents (Blu-ray Review)

With The Golden Child, I once again get to wonder, “When did Paramount become Shout Select?” Given the expansive library of one of the oldest Hollywood studios, I have been very intrigued by the mix of classic and leftfield choices that have come out under the “Paramount Presents” Blu-ray release banner. That said, what better […]

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 […]

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, […]

Peter’s Picture Perfect Top Ten Movies of 2019

I’m calling it. 2019 was the best end of the decade year since 1999. If I had the time, I could have easily made a list of 25 or maybe even 50 films. The MCU came to a conclusion (for now) with the fantastic crowd pleaser and box office record-breaker Avengers: Endgame. Studio pics and one particular […]

Beverly Hills Cop: 3-Movie Collection (Blu-ray Review)

Yes, I’m in the same boat as you. Why is this not a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release, Paramount? Us collectors don’t care for your boasting of 4K Ultra-HD streams to “own”. At least the new transfers are being used for the Blu-rays on this new set that also includes some “new” extras for the taking […]

Coming To America – 30th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Along with the 35th anniversary of Trading Places, Paramount has also released a 30th-anniversary edition of Coming to America, another massive hit for Eddie Murphy. Unfortunately, much like the new Trading Places release, there’s nothing new to be found in this release, including everything on the technical side of the release. That’s a shame, as Coming to America is often looked at as […]

For better or worse, Paramount is delivering two Eddie Murphy classics this month, in honor of their anniversaries. The first is his two-hander with co-lead Dan Aykroyd, Trading Places, the modern take on The Prince and the Pauper, which features Murphy’s hustler taking over the life of Aykroyd’s spoiled yuppie.
