My Two Cents

Sorry for our absence yesterday. We’ve been dealing with various and sundry server issues over the weekend and we’re just starting to get back to normal. Honestly, it’s a wonder the Internet still works at all these days. So anyway, thanks for your patience.

We have a bunch of title announcements to cover today, but first, today marks the 20th anniversary of our friends Robert Meyer Burnett and Mark A. Altman’s film Free Enterprise. So we wanted to call your attention to Michael Coate’s retrospective on the film from its 15th anniversary back in 2014. You can read Still Loving Long & Partying: Remembering Free Enterprise on its 15th Anniversary right here. The film isn’t on Blu-ray yet and so it’s always surprising how many people haven’t see it. But if you’re a fan of classic Star Trek, pop culture, and actors William Shatner and Eric McCormack, we think you’ll really enjoy it.

Meanwhile, we’re starting to get back to reviews. I still have two more Batman 4Ks coming, plus Tim and Dennis have some Blu-rays they’ve reviewed for you too. I’ve also got a trio of science fiction Blu-ray releases I’m going to try to cover soon as well. So be sure to watch for those. [Read on here...]

We mentioned it yesterday here on the website, but we now have final cover artwork from Lionsgate for their 4K Ultra HD release of Sam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead. You can see it at the left and also below.

Look for the disc to street on 10/9, and to include both a Blu-ray and a Digital Copy, for just $22.99.

As we reported yesterday, the 4K disc will include audio commentary with writer-director Sam Raimi, producer Robert Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell. The film has apparently been scanned in 4K (presumably from the original 16mm, though the studio’s press release doesn’t indicated the source), and the disc will feature Dolby Vision HDR and English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.
