My Two Cents

My Two Cents

All right, we have more new disc reviews for you today... and we’ll have a few more tomorrow as well. On tap this afternoon are...

My thoughts on Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 on 4K Ultra HD from Marvel and Disney. (And yes, I am working on Iron Man3, and I’ll be reviewing Dr. Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the original Ant-Man in 4K when they street early next month too.)

Dennis’ take on Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die on Blu-ray from Focus Films and Universal.

And Tim’s look at Aldo Lado’s 1972 giallo film Who Saw Her Die? from Arrow Video.

Enjoy, and be sure to check back tomorrow for more disc reviews! And now for some release news... [Read on here...]


We’ve got no less than three new disc reviews today, including my own thoughts on Disney’s classic animated Aladdin (1992) in 4K Ultra HD.

We also have Dennis’ take on Guy Ritchie’s new remake of Aladdin (2019) on both Blu-ray and (with my assistance on the technical side) 4K Ultra HD. We hope you enjoy.

And just so you know, there will be more disc reviews every day this week, including both Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD titles. So be sure to watch for the next batch starting tomorrow morning.

In announcement news today, Paramount has just set Night Hunter for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/15. The film stars Ben Kingsley, Henry Cavill, and Alexandra Daddario. [Read on here...]



The big news today is that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just set Spider-Man: Far From Home for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 10/1, with the Digital release due on 9/17. The 4K disc will include Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.

Special features on the Blu-ray and 4K will include the all-new short Peter’s To-Do List, 11 featurettes (Teachers’ Travel Tips, Stepping Up, Suit Up, Far, FAR, Far From Home, It Takes Two, Fury & Hill, The Ginter-Riva Effect, Thank You, Mrs. Parker, The Brother’s Trust, The Jump Off, and Now You See Me), plus Stealthy Easter Eggs, Select Scene Pre-Vis, a Gag Reel & Outtakes, and Alternate & Extended Scenes.

We certainly hope you’re all enjoying the long Labor Day weekend here in the States. And Happy Monday for the rest of you!

Given the holiday, we’re taking a much needed break today. But we do have a couple of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy...

Tim has just turned in his in-depth thoughts on the long-awaited Scooby-Doo: Where Are You? Complete Series Blu-ray set from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The package streets tomorrow, and it sounds like it’s pretty good. You can read that review here.

Also, Tim has posted his thoughts on Gary Sherman’s Vice Squad (1982) from Scream Factory, as well as the Akio Jissôji: The Buddhist Trilogy box set from Arrow Academy, both on Blu-ray.

And Dennis rounds things out with his thoughts on A Dog’s Journey on Blu-ray from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

So enjoy those and we’ll be back tomorrow with our regular news update and more. Stay tuned!
