My Two Cents

We interrupt your Sunday afternoon with a great piece of breaking news from New York Comic-Con today:

The Warner Archive has just announced that it’s finally going to be bringing Batman: The Animated Series to Blu-ray Disc in 2018!

We don’t have any other details at the moment, but the announcement happened at a panel this afternoon celebrating the 25th anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series featuring Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, Kevin Conroy, and Tara Strong. [Read on here…]


All right, there’s not a lot of release news to report here today, but we do have a couple more reviews for you...

Tim has checked in with his take on Shout! Factory’s Death Wish II: Special Edition as well as Umbrella Entertainment’s all-region Double Feature of Death Wish II and Death Wish 3.

Meanwhile, I’m working on a couple more 4K Ultra HD reviews, as well as reviews of GKids’ new first wave of Studio Ghibli BD releases. So watch for those to start appearing in over the next few days. [Read on here…]


All right, kind of a bummer day given today’s news, but we’ve got a few things for you to try and cheer you up...

First of all, we’ve posted a whole bunch of new reviews over the weekend, including my looks at Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Rebels – Season Three on BD and Universal’s The Mummy (2017), Paramount’s Ghost in the Shell (2017), and Sony’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Bridge on the River Kwai: 60th Anniversary Edition in 4K Ultra HD. Meanwhile, Tim has checked in with his thoughts on the Warner Archive’s Innocent Blood, Shout! Factory’s TAMI Show & The Big TNT Show, and Criterion’s Blow-Up on Blu-ray, as well as 20th Century Fox’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series DVD box set. [Read on here…]

A quick note before we start today’s post: A bunch of you have e-mailed over the past week or so and I’ve got a bit of a backlog in getting back to everyone. So if you haven’t heard from me yet, I’ll do my best to respond to all of you over the next few days. Thanks for your patience!

Now then... let’s have an overdue announcement news round-up, shall we?

First up today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is going to be releasing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on 4K Ultra HD on 11/7 (SRP $31.99 each), along with the previously revealed Harry Potter 8-Film Collection in 4K UHD (SRP around $215.99). We’re awaiting the studio’s official press release, but Walmart already has the discs listed. Pre-orders are not up yet on Amazon, but we’ll add the links as soon as they are. Audio will be English DTS:X, with HDR10 high dynamic range. You can see the over artwork to the left and also below. [Read on here…]
