    Safe shopping! And, as always, thanks to you all for your weekly support!

    I think the 3D Archive confirmed they were working on a restoration of Parasite, but I don't think it's due out for a while. I'll probably skip the VHS and wait for the blu-ray. :D

    Thank you, Mike!

    Never Look Away is a fantastic movie which I would love to see again and own, so I'll eventually pick it up. But the Broadway obsessive in me is winning next week. Random House Audio is releasing an audiobook of the entire Angels in America script, adapted as a listening experience and featuring the cast of last year's Broadway revival reprising their roles.

    I've long had that on pre-order for next week, and that's enough for one week. Considering that it's seven CDs and almost seven hours, Amazon's price (currently $22.90) is very fair. But I don't want to add another $22.55 for Never Look Away on top of that in one day, so, the movie can wait. Maybe by the time I get around to it, it will have dropped in price. In case anyone else is interested, this is what I'm talking about. The cast includes Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane.

    Angels in America.

    Oh, and while we're on the topic of Angels in America, the HBO miniseries adaptation of the play from 2003 really needs a Blu-ray upgrade.

    I saw this London production via a broadcast to an Angelika screen. Well worth it. I've also seen 2 separate productions of the plays: one in Chicago; the other in Dallas. It's a tremendous experience.

    No problem! I seem to be sneaking these reviews onto the site without much notice since I cut back on the volume of my output. Appreciate your efforts always!

    There was a Backdraft 2? I didn't know there was a sequel to the original. Not that I'm likely to buy it, though.

    Why? I seriously can't think of a single reason to do that. I don't even watch DVDs anymore. And if I can watch a 4K Blu-ray instead of a Blu-ray, I will 10 times out of 10.
