Today’s update is a very quick one, as I’m still recovering from the flu while also trying to get the new Marvel 4K titles reviewed here on The Bits.
The first of those reviews is up now: My take on Captain America: Civil War in 4K Ultra HD. It’s a worthy upgrade of the previous Blu-ray, with a new Dolby Atmos mix and HDR10 (but only in 2.39:1 – no IMAX ratio).
My thoughts on Captain America: The Winter Solider are coming soon as well, so be sure to watch for them. And don’t forget, I posted my review of Ridley Scott’s Alien in 4K on Friday.
In the meantime today, Tim has posted reviews of Scream Factory’s Warning Sign and The Manitou on Blu-ray, along with Shout! Factory’s Hang ’Em High: 50th Anniversary Edition. And we have a Blu-ray review from David too, this of Indicator’s Take a Girl Like You. Enjoy! [Read on here...]
Also today, we have a quick forthcoming 4K Ultra HD title update: Look for Lionsgate to release Oliver Stone’s The Doors in July. Universal is releasing Ang Lee’s Hulk (2003), also likely in July. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame currently looks to be an August Blu-ray and 4K release, and the next batch of catalog MCU films to arrive in the US in 4K will be Iron Man 1-3 at around the same time. Our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits has been updated accordingly.
Also, HBO’s From the Earth to the Moon is now officially up for pre-order on Amazon (the cover art below is temp only), along with Netflix and Fox’s Lost in Space: The Complete First Season. Here’s the pre-order links for those and more...
Back soon with that review of Captain America: The Winter Solider in 4K.
