Stephen has checked in with his thoughts on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad in 4K Ultra HD from Warner, along with Claude Chabrol’s Blue Panther (1965) from Kino Lorber Studio Classics and Jean Renoir’s Whirlpool of Fate (1925) from Kino Classics both on Blu-ray Disc.

Also, Tim has checked out Philip Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) in 4K Ultra HD from Kino Lorber Studio Classics, along with Richard Friedman’s Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge (1989) from Arrow Video on Blu-ray.

And Dennis has turned in his take on Basil Dearden’s The Assassination Bureau (1969) on region-free Blu-ray from Imprint Films and Via Vision.

Today’s update is a quick one, as we’re doing a lot behind-the-scenes work here at the site today. (I’m personally digging into some interesting upcoming title rumors.) But we do have some good updates for you on forthcoming 4K Ultra HD titles, and there’s a bunch of new 4K titles available for pre-order.

First up... a great piece of announcement news: Our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics have just revealed that they’re going to be releasing Stanley Kubrick’s B&W war classic Paths of Glory (1957) on 4K Ultra HD sometime early in 2022. Street date is listed as “coming soon.” As many of you will already know, the film stars Kirk Douglas as a French army commander in World War I. It’s a brilliant piece of work, and should look great in 4K.

While we’re talking Kino Lorber Studio Classics, the company has also provided updates on other classic catalog titles that are coming soon to 4K. Out of Sight (1998) is currently due in Spring 2022. To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) is awaiting the attention of director William Friedkin to grade and approve the Dolby Vision HDR master. And Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil (1958) is now set to arrive on 4K UHD in February. [Read on here...]

We’ve got some big announcement news for you today, and a few follow-ups on previously-mentioned titles and issues too. But let’s get to a couple new reviews first...

First up, Dennis has posted his thoughts on Michael Showalter’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye on Blu-ray from Fox Searchlight.

And Stephen has checked in with this thoughts on Imprint/Via Vision’s The Harry Palmer Collection, which stars Michael Caine as a working-class spy. The set includes The Ipcress File, Funeral in Berlin, and Billion Dollar Brain on region-free Blu-ray Disc.
