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…]
Let’s get right down to business to start the new week…
First up, we’ve got a trio of new disc reviews for you to check out. I’ve offered my thoughts on Sony’s new A Few Good Men: 25th Anniversary Edition on 4K Ultra HD, which is one of the best film-based catalog titles I’ve seen yet on the format in terms of A/V quality. I’ve also posted a review of Netflix’s Target-exclusive Stranger Things: Season 1 on Ultra HD, which is native 4K but has no HDR and only lossy audio – a real disappointment, all things considered. Meanwhile, Tim has posted his review of Shout! Factory’s new Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX box set on DVD. Note that more Blu-ray and 4K reviews are on the way all this week, so keep checking back. [Read on here…]
