Some of you have asked if we’ll be reviewing the other Star Wars catalog titles on 4K Ultra HD too. And the answer is absolutely 100% we will—we just don’t know yet when we’ll get our hands on the discs. Disney doesn’t typically send out its catalog 4Ks for review, so we might get them tomorrow, we might get them a week before street, or we might get them on street date like everyone else. But one way or another, we will be reviewing all 10 of the other films in-depth here at The Bits. So be sure to watch our social media feeds (and here for updates).
Meanwhile, Dennis has turned in a review of Josh and Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems on Blu-ray. The film stars Adam Sandler and is being released by A24 and Lionsgate. You’ll find that here.
And we do have a little bit of “odds and ends” release news to report today...
CBS has revealed that they’re going to be releasing Star Trek: Short Treks on Blu-ray on 6/2.
Some of you may recall that I recently reviewed the UK import Blu-ray of Angus MacFadyen’s recent Braveheart sequel, Robert the Bruce, here at The Bits. Well good news for US fans: Screen Media has picked up the rights and plans to release it here on 6/2 as well (click here to pre-order).
