    Pre-Order My Bloody Valentine (1981) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    This is incredible! The old (and now very expensive) blu had lower quality inserts of the uncut footage which were kind of jarring. A whole new consistent scan of the film is welcome. I still haul out the real3D version of the remake every once in a while.

    Pre-Order The Fly Collection (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    We almost got the same treatment in the Omen boxset with old transfers, but at least the original had a new 4K scan. I was hoping for the same here with the Cronenberg Fly. This one was still a no-brainer for me since I had none of these on Blu or even DVD. Side note: The Omen remake in that set...

    Satanic Rites of Dracula (1974)- coming from WAC

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I have recently received this and have yet to watch it. Is there any way to check to see if I have the original or re-pressing? P.S. As much as I love Hammer Dracula, I still believe I may have purchased this blu because the title looks bad-ass in my collection.

    Batman anthology 1989-1997 UHD Blu Ray in June!!!

    Same boat here, but I would happily upgrade if the BD discs are from the new master like the latest Matrix Trilogy. The UHD discs will sit tight until I pick up a new TV.

    There have been plenty of reviews, but my Amazon.ca order was cancelled because they are unable to obtain this disc.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Rec Collection -- in Blu-ray

    Happy to say this is on its way from Amazon. I had just watched 1 on a streaming service and was 1/2 way through the 2nd one before I got called away. Both were gone from the service when I went back to finish a day later. My love of 1 and what I had seen of 2 is worth the cost of the set which...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Halloween -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Just the first disc in the Complete Collection box set. It is an updated version of the 35th anniversary disc with a lossless Dolby TrueHD mono track. A link from DVD compare to shows that it is also available in this set. The 4K has a lossy incorrect mono track with the 4K 35th ann transfer and...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Halloween -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Same here. Our major bummer is that the lossless mono track is already there and ready on the box set. It wasn't a case of them not going back to the original tapes or film to make a new one. They could have easily ripped the track from the box blu off of the shelf itself and muxed it in. There...

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    I know, right! Always so close. Someone at Lionsgate and other companies needs to be always monitoring sites like this while staying close to the authoring process to avoid these pitfalls. I would recommend one of us going to their office, moving into an empty office, and just call your self...

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    The Digital Bits review states "the color timing retains its proper cool autumn look in the daytime Haddonfield scenes, as well as the cool blue tint of the nighttime sequences.". Does this mean what I think it does? If so and on a cynical note, did it take moving to a new company away from...

    Yet Another Reason for the Physical Media Mkt (DVD, Blu, UHD Blu). Netflix cancels 11 titles.

    I am surprised that this guys movies were completely removed. It is one thing to remove it from the store front and another to remove access to any purchases. I have plenty of games like Ubisoft's Scott Pilgrim that have been removed from the PlayStation store because the license had expired...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Solo: A Star Wars Story -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I'm of the mind that this would have been a blockbuster if released in theaters this December and not 5 months after the fan divisive Last Jedi. I'm picking this up on 4K and importing the 3D. Boo to Disney for not creating an all in one package for these like my Guardians 2 and Star Trek Beyond.

    The Invisible Man + The Creature from the Black Lagoon Blu Ray Legacy Sets coming 8/28

    Here in Canada I had barely needed to return the discs of many of my previous replacements while I usually see on this forum that they had to do an exchange. They just send the discs or the whole package without a need to return the defective. I have 2 copies of Wrath of Kahn DC because of this...

    The Invisible Man + The Creature from the Black Lagoon Blu Ray Legacy Sets coming 8/28

    Well that says it all. :) We will know in a few weeks. There would most likely be a new listing on the spine or UPC if they replace with a whole new set, but that is rarely done. Usually there is a serial number on the inner ring of the disc. Someone would be sure to note both here.

    The Invisible Man + The Creature from the Black Lagoon Blu Ray Legacy Sets coming 8/28

    I just received that email too. It's awesome of Universal for the quick response to this issue. I would have 2 sets that need to be replaced. The CFTBL set that I guess I will gift now and I have the complete collection set on the way in the mail right now because I could not pass up 45% off...

    The Invisible Man + The Creature from the Black Lagoon Blu Ray Legacy Sets coming 8/28

    This forum and an amazing sale at Amazon for $94.99 CDN ($72.13 USD) has convinced me to pick up the complete collection. Now I will have 2 copies of the bunk Revenge of the Creature.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Tingler & Strait-Jacket -- in Blu-ray

    I am gonna play it simple when it comes to watching it with my kids with well placed cell phones on vibrate behind the blanket on the couch all called at the right time. Worth the cost of upcoming years of therapy.

    The Invisible Man + The Creature from the Black Lagoon Blu Ray Legacy Sets coming 8/28

    Just sent an email with this link. I would recommend everyone do as well. Be nice. Though I have to say I was kind of passive aggressive. The Digital Bits says that Universal is “looking into the matter”, but we should still voice our displeasure lest they spend 2 minutes looking into it and...

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    Just to elaborate, the first DVD of Halloween was the poster child of not to make a DVD. It was a non-anamorphic transfer with a litter of compression errors even in the black bars. Two years later and we got the 1999 THX remaster which was the gold standard for this movie for quite a while. The...

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    Anyone with concerns on this? Like Terminator 2, I have learned to never buy the first release of this on a new format. Edit: Here is an old link describing the initial release on DVD some 20 years back along with a production diary on the creation of the beloved 1999 DVD.

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    Weird huh. I only found this out because I was curious on why Lionsgate was doing this release. Pour some out for AB. You're in a better place with surrounded with your 1000 different releases of Evil Dead films.

    HDR, Why wasn't dynamic range an issue before?

    One question on UHDs that uprez movies finished in 2K digital intermediate. Is there any improvement or would it be just as good and space saving to provide it on a UHD disc in 1080p with HDR? The encode would shine with the newer h265 codec, 10-12 bit color, and plenty of space for all other...

    Halloween coming in October in 4K UHD

    Any word on if this is a new transfer or a UHD encode of the transfer used for the 35th Anniversary edition? I couldn't find any info on if the 35th was a 2K or 4K transfer, but it's a safe bet that it was a 2K given that it was Anchor Bay. Fingers crossed that the included blu would be a from...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Matrix -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I myself am not up to 4K yet, but they say that the included SDR blu is sourced from this new master and is a vast improvement on the old 2007 master. Has anyone checked out that disc yet? I may pick this up tonight if so. Future-proofing for the eventual upgrade to 4K and a great new SDR...
