All right, we’ve got some new reviews for you here at The Bits today...

Tim has taken a look at Lionsgate’s Slaughter High, part of their Vestron Video Collector’s Series on Blu-ray. I’ve also posted my thoughts on Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in 4K Ultra HD, also from Lionsgate, a title that includes both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. Both are worth a look. We’re also currently working on a review of HBO’s Westworld: The Complete First Season in 4K and other titles too, so do check back later and tomorrow for those.

In announcement news today, the big news is that Lionsgate has finally rescheduled their delayed Terminator 2: Judgment Day 4K Ultra HD release for 12/26. As many of you know, the title had originally been set for release on 10/3, but was delayed due to a problem with the master. Pre-orders should start up again soon on Amazon, so watch this link (and the cover link below)[Read on here…]

Yes, it’s true: Our friends at Kino Lorber are seriously considering the release of Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly on 4K Ultra HD in 2018, and they’re running a poll to ask for your opinion on the idea. Click this link to visit their page on Facebook and respond with a like for yes or an angry face for no. You can see what the cover artwork might look like there on the left.

Dailies – Umbrella Entertainment

As many of us already know, when you’re searching for a film that has been elusive as far as DVD and Blu-ray are concerned, looking elsewhere in the world might just yield you a copy of what you seek. To that end, on the other side of the globe (Australia to be exact), Umbrella Entertainment is releasing a number of hard to find titles, as well as upgrades of already existing ones. From the obscure to the mainstream, there’s always something in their library worthy of your attention.

For example, their recent Blu-ray release of Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films and Machete Maidens Unleashed!. It’s an exclusive title piled high with extras, almost none of which you’ll find on the DVD-only state-side releases. Be sure to check out our review of it as well. And while their DVDs are Region 4 encoded, ALL of Umbrella Entertainment’s Blu-ray releases are Region Free, regardless of what the online description or final packaging states. So no matter what your setup is, you can watch their Blu-rays. Speaking of which, here are several recent titles worthy of your attention. [Read on here...]

Whew!

Rest assured, we’ve got more new reviews coming this week, including a bunch more 4K titles, Baby Driver and Spiderman: Homecoming included. So be sure to watch for those. [Read on here…]
