We’re closing out the week today with another pair of new Blu-ray reviews from Tim, including JD’s Revenge from Arrow Video and also Attack Force Z from Umbrella Entertainment. Do give them a look.

In announcement news today, Lionsgate has set Hèctor Hernández Vicens’s Day of the Dead: Bloodline for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/6.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has revealed that it will release Topaze (1933) on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/6. Extras will include audio commentary by film historian Kit Ellinger and a trailer. Better still, Kino will release a The Lion in Winter: 50th Anniversary Edition (1968) on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/13, mastered from a 2016 4K restoration, featuring audio commentary by director Anthony Harvey, an interview with sound recordist Simon Kaye, both 5.1 and 2.0 audio, and the trailer.

We’ve got another trio of disc reviews for you today, including my take on Sony’s Ghostbusters (2016) on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format and Shout! Factory’s new Nighthawks: Collector’s Edition (1981) on Blu-ray, which is one of the company’s new Shout Select titles. Whatever else you think of the Ghostbusters remake, Sony has included Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and Digital HD versions in the same package with the 4K without increasing the price - I wish more studios would do this. And fans of Nighthawks will be pleased to learn that the film’s soundtrack has been restored to include both The Rolling Stone’s Brown Sugar and Keith Emerson’s I’m a Man during the club scene. Meanwhile, Tim Salmons has also reviewed Entertainment One’s WNUF Halloween Special on good old DVD. Don’t miss them.  [Read on here…]
