All right, just some quick odds and ends in today’s post while I’m off to work on reviews...

Tim has posted his thoughts on Alexander Singer’s Psyche 59 (1964) from Powerhouse Films and Indicator as well as David Blyth’s Death Warmed Up (1984) from Severin Films. Both are available on Blu-ray, so do give them a look if you’re interested.

In announcement news today, Warner Bros. has just officially set DC Universe animated film Batman: Hush for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 8/13, with the Digital release expected on 7/20. Extras will include the DC Showcase: Sgt. Rock animated short, the Batman: Love in Time of War featurette, audio commentary (with executive producer James Tucker, director Justin Copeland, and screenwriter Ernie Altbacker), a sneak peek at the next DC Universe Movie, Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, and two From the DC Vault episodes of The Batman/Superman Hour (including The Underworld Underground Caper and Partners in Peril). You can see the over artwork at left and also below. [Read on here...]

All right, I’m back on Facebook finally and things seem to be settling back to some kind of normal. So today’s post is going to have a lot of 4K news, with a bit of Blu-ray too, and then we’ll have a big Blu-ray catch up post tomorrow...

First though, we’ve got a couple more new Blu-ray reviews for you: Tim has taken a look at Scared Stiff from Arrow Video, while Dennis has offered his thoughts on The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970) from Kino Lorber Studio Classics. Enjoy!

Now then, we have a bunch of great 4K Ultra HD release news for you, starting with confirmation that Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth is officially coming to the format from Warner and New Line in July. We don’t yet have a street date, but it’s already up for pre-order here on Amazon (you can see the cover artwork at left and also below). And I must say, of all the titles that could benefit from 4K, wide color gamut, and HDR, this is near the top of the list! Of course, we’ll post more details when they’re officially announced.

Today’s update is a very quick one, as I’m still recovering from the flu while also trying to get the new Marvel 4K titles reviewed here on The Bits.

The first of those reviews is up now: My take on Captain America: Civil War in 4K Ultra HD. It’s a worthy upgrade of the previous Blu-ray, with a new Dolby Atmos mix and HDR10 (but only in 2.39:1 – no IMAX ratio).

My thoughts on Captain America: The Winter Solider are coming soon as well, so be sure to watch for them. And don’t forget, I posted my review of Ridley Scott’s Alien in 4K on Friday.

In the meantime today, Tim has posted reviews of Scream Factory’s Warning Sign and The Manitou on Blu-ray, along with Shout! Factory’s Hang ’Em High: 50th Anniversary Edition. And we have a Blu-ray review from David too, this of Indicator’s Take a Girl Like You. Enjoy! [Read on here...]
