All right, we’ve got some new reviews for you here at The Bits today...
Tim has taken a look at Lionsgate’s Slaughter High, part of their Vestron Video Collector’s Series on Blu-ray. I’ve also posted my thoughts on Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in 4K Ultra HD, also from Lionsgate, a title that includes both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. Both are worth a look. We’re also currently working on a review of HBO’s Westworld: The Complete First Season in 4K and other titles too, so do check back later and tomorrow for those.
In announcement news today, the big news is that Lionsgate has finally rescheduled their delayed Terminator 2: Judgment Day 4K Ultra HD release for 12/26. As many of you know, the title had originally been set for release on 10/3, but was delayed due to a problem with the master. Pre-orders should start up again soon on Amazon, so watch this link (and the cover link below). [Read on here…]
