Evening, folks. Sorry our posts here at The Bits have been a little uneven this week. We had a lost in the family here unfortunately that’s put a little damper on the holiday season and has made it a little difficult getting work done. However, we have been continuing to work on new discs reviews for you guys.
Since Monday, we’ve posted my reviews of Warner’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 4K Ultra HD (which means we have now reviewed all 8 films in 4K here at The Bits), along with a joint review (by Tim and I) of Peter Jackson’s King Kong: Ultimate Edition in 4K from Universal, and also Tim’s thoughts on the Misery: Collector’s Edition from Scream Factory, the Blood Feast: Special Edition from Arrow Video, and Spotlight on a Murderer from Arrow Academy, all in regular Blu-ray. Tim has more Blu-ray reviews to come (including a look at CBS and Showtime’s new Twin Peaks: A Limited Event Series), and I’m working on reviews of Atomic Blonde and Westworld in 4K, as well as the Speed Racer: Collector’s Edition box set from FUNimation, more of GKids’s Studio Ghibli titles, and other titles. So watch for those in the days ahead. [Read on here…]
All right, we’ve got a rare Saturday post for you here at The Bits with your very first look at some great new 4K cover artwork, as well as word on a number of surprising new 4K Ultra HD titles that we know to be on the way from our studio, retail, and industry sources. So let’s get right to it (and note that we’ll include Amazon pre-order links if available – just click on the title names in the text below)...
First up, Paramount has set Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar for release on 4K Ultra HD on 12/19. Pre-orders are now open on Amazon US at this link and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the final cover artwork to the left and below. Paramount is also expected to release Suburbicon and Annihilation in early 2018. All of their Transformers films are now available in 4K for release on 12/5, and there’s a Transformers: 5-Movie Collection available for pre-order in the UK. Finally, we’re hearing that Ridley Scott’s Gladiator is likely for early next year as well, probably sometime in March. [Read on here…]
We start today’s post here at The Bits with a pair of new discs reviews: My take on Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD from Paramount and also Tim’s thoughts on Criterion’s new Blu-ray release of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.
Also here at The Bits today, we’ve posted the weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, we’d appreciate it if you’d shop through our links. [Read on here…]
