Some fun films available this week even if they're not quite classic-level yet.

Thanks for the RoundUp, as always.

Thank you for your work, Mike!

I love Big Fish. I think it is Tim Burton's best film that I have seen by a long shot. This is one of those rare occurrences when I am going to pick up a UHD title even though I can't use the UHD format.

According to the press release, Sony has remastered the included Blu-ray (presumably a down-conversion of the 4K master) and included the extras from the DVD that were left off the original release.

I've always loved the movie, but never quite got around to buying that previous Blu-ray which would have required me to keep the old DVD for the extras.

This is a situation where Sony's extra effort on remastering the Blu-ray and putting the extras back on it are giving them an extra sale. Because the Blu-ray is a clear upgrade which I can use right now, I'm happy to buy the 4K disc with it, even though I can't use that one. I'll also be able to retire my 17-year-old DVD.

Other studios (such as Paramount, simply repackaging the old Blu-rays of Indiana Jones instead of authoring new ones) should take note. This is how you do a catalog title up right.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing the film again in HD. I bet it's going to look terrific.
