We’re closing out the week today with a pair of additional reviews. Tim has checked in with his Pick-Ups thoughts on Paramount’s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse on Blu-ray and I’ve delivered my take on Sony’s new Ghostbusters release on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. I’ll tell you this much: If Ghostbusters is representative of what we can expect from other classic film releases on the format, I can’t wait for more. Do give them a look.  [Read on here…]

We’ve gotten a mini flood of 4K Ultra HD titles in today here at The Bits that are in serious need of reviewing, so I’m going to skip the usual news update in favor of getting a few of these done in a timely fashion. As such, here’s my look at Warner’s Creed on 4K UHD format.  [Read on here…]

We’re starting today with two more new Blu-ray reviews here at The Bits. The first is Tim’s look at Piers Haggard’s 1983 horror film Venom, which is now available from our friends at Blue Underground. The second is Jim Hemphill’s take on Ralph Nelson’s Lilies of the Field (1963) from Twilight Time, another great limited edition catalog release.

All right, we’ve got a couple things for you today...

First up, as you may have noticed, my review of Fox’s Deadpool on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format went live yesterday afternoon. You can find that here, and I’ll have more on the subject in just a moment. The 4K disc looks and sounds absolutely fantastic, and the included Blu-ray is actually quite a surprisingly nice little special edition too. Don’t miss it.

Also here at the site today, we’ve got a new Blu-ray review from Jim Hemphill, featuring his thoughts on Mike Hodges’ A Prayer for the Dying (1987), now available on disc in HD from Twilight Time. Do check it out.  [Read on here…]

I’ll have more of a daily column post here at The Bits tomorrow, with some pictures and comments on that Fox 4K event I attended yesterday. Meanwhile though, here’s my review of Deadpool on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.  [Read on here…]
