We’re kicking things off today with two more Blu-ray reviews: Tim’s taken a look at Dusty Nelson’s Effects (1978) and Tom Hanson’s The Zodiac Killer (1971) on disc from Synapse Films and AGFA. Sounds like both are worth a look, so enjoy the reviews. And be aware, that I’ve working on a new Blu-ray review and several more new 4K Ultra HD reviews myself, so watch for those over the next few days.
In announcement news today... FUNimation has finally set Speed Racer: The Ultimate Collection for release on Blu-ray/DVD Combo box set on 11/7. This whopping 10 Blu-ray/16 DVD box set will come in “Speed-Head” packaging and will include Speed Racer: The Complete Series (1967) on both Blu-ray and DVD, the original Japanese version of Mach GoGoGo (1967) on both Blu-ray and DVD, and also the newer Mach GoGoGo “Restart” (1997) series on DVD only. Extras will include a new interview with voice actor Connie Orr (aka Trixie) and a collectible keychain. You can see the packaging above-left and below. [Read on here…]
All right, we have a few new reviews for you today...
Tim has checked in with his looks at Shout! Factory’s Road House: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume V on DVD, as well as Vinegar Syndrome’s Nurse Sherri, and Severin Films’ Blackenstein, classics of the grindhouse and blaxploitation genres respectively, both newly released on Blu-ray.
Also, I’ve posted a review of Lionsgate’s Power Rangers on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. You may or may not be a fan of the film, but the disc features reference quality full 4K video (with Dolby Vision HDR) and Dolby Atmos audio. It also has an epic 140-minute making of documentary produced by our old friend Cliff Stephenson. It’s well worth a look if you’re a fan of the 4K format. And I’m working on more 4K reviews this afternoon, so watch for those to be posted tonight and tomorrow here on The Bits. [Read on here…]
