This is a BIG week in the world of home video releases if:

A.) ...you are Eddie Murphy

B.) ...you are hoping to upgrade a big ass bunch of classic films in the 4k/UHD format.

C.) ...you have a passing interest in seeing The Lord of the Rings films in Ultra High Definition.

We have made it to December, RoundUppers! Have a great week.

Safe shopping!

Has anyone seen more UHD releases before in a week? Of course seeing that I already have some of those titles in UHD many are re releases. I will get The Lord of the Rings in UHD.

Yeah, I think all those that are re-releases fall into the steelbook category.

But, no...I'd say this is the biggest listing of UHD titles so far (which is kind of crazy considering there haven't been many major cinematic releases in the theaters this year--primed for a holiday home video release).

Thank you for your work, Mike!

Because I am not 4K equipped right now, I don't need anything on that big list of 4K upgrades. So nothing for me this week.

I'm not sure what's different about those reissues of the recent Spider-Man and Venom films on 4K, other than the new artwork promoting the PS5. Anyone interested in those might check Amazon's listings for the previous versions, which are still in print. I suspect the older ones are cheaper.

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

There are definitely some classics on that list that deserve some attention. I had no idea there was going to be so forceful a 4K push this week.

Will pick up Crash only if B&N opts to extend the Criterion sale a day or two. Other than that, I intend to introduce my wife to Continental Divide at some point.

There's a lot of Blair Brown fans on the Home Theater Forum! :thumbsup:

I'm one of them. I saw Continental Divide during its theatrical run!


As did I (loved Molly Dodd).

I'm from a suburb of Chicago (close enough so when I'm traveling, I say 'I'm from Chicago'). Subscriber to the Sun Times (until it dwindled into nothingness). Grew up reading Mike Royko.

I was a freshman in a far away college when this came out, feeling a bit homesick. This was a welcome tonic to me.

Three for me this week:
  • Bugs Bunny 80th Anniversary Collection Limited Edition
  • Paramount Presents: 11 - The Golden Child
  • Paramount Presents: 12 - Trading Places
These on top of the Warner Archive 4 for $44 sale, the Kino sale, the Criterion sale at Barnes & Noble, and various Black Friday Sale sites.
I tell you, I cannot afford to save much more money this year.

I'm so jealous. :angry: ;)

I think I'm getting a new 4K player for Christmas, but I still don't have a 4K display for a while yet.

I'm with ya, Malcolm. I've had the 4k player for more than a year....but still no 4k display. My Panasonic plasma is still going strong (although it DOES shut itself off about once a night--sometimes twice--but then it still comes right back on).

But I think when the time finally comes to upgrade my display, I might just spring for that LotR set.

I got a Samsung 4K player a few years back, but it was kind of glitchy (picture would freeze on some discs while, oddly, the audio would continue to play normally), so I swapped it out and put my old Sony blu-ray player back in service. I have the Samsung in storage for future use, if necessary. I should be getting a Panasonic player this time.

Future use for the Samsung 4K player might be as a boat anchor for a dinghy ;) ,,,

I had the Samsung player when it first came out, and I agree, it was very glitchy - random lockups and would periodically lose handshake with my display and receiver - and that remote made me feel like a giant. Luckily, I purchased it at Best Buy with a protection plan, so when Sony finally came out with their player, the X800, I simply traded it in. Of course, the X800 also had its share of issues, which Sony very graciously replaced for me two years later with the X800-M2 and haven't had too many issues with it (although their implementation of Dolby Vision is whacko on the M2, but I don't have a DV display so it does not effect me yet).
