My Two Cents

My Two Cents

All right, we’ve got three more new Blu-ray reviews for you today...

First up, Tim has checked in with his thoughts on Scream Factory’s The Night Walker and the Warner Archive’s From Hell It Came on Blu-ray. Both are well worth a look, so do check them out.

Also, as promised I’ve turned in my thoughts on Umbrella Entertainment’s Australian Blu-ray version of Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune, which is region free and features 24p (so no PAL audio speed-up). It matches well with Alive AG’s German Frank Herbert’s Dune Blu-ray which I reviewed earlier this week. Do give it a look if you’re a fan. [Read on here...]

All right, we have three more new disc reviews for you today…

First up, my thoughts on Paramount’s Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane on 4K Ultra HD. Good films certainly, but interesting catalog choices for release on this format. Do give them a look.

Also available today, Tim takes a look at Severin’s new Blu-ray release of Umberto Lenzi’s Eaten Alive, for those in need of an Italian cannibal horror/gore fix. There you go. [Read on here...]

All right, we’ve got a trio of new new Blu-ray reviews for you to start the new week...

I’ve actually managed to find time to write a few myself, so we start with my take on Joe Wright’s outstanding Darkest Hour, on Blu-ray from Focus Films and Universal. The disc streets tomorrow.

Also, I’m pleased to be able to report that there’s ONE good Blu-ray edition of the Frank Herbert’s Dune miniseries available on Blu-ray for US fans, and it comes from Alive AG in Germany. It’s an all-region release with English audio (but no subs), lots of the previous DVD extras, and no 4% PAL audio speed-up. There’s also a good Children of Dune BD too (from Umbrella Entertainment) that I’ll be reviewing here later this week, so be sure to watch for that.

And Tim has checked out the Warner Archive’s fine new Blu-ray release of Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III. Enjoy! [Read on here...]
