Today is obviously a holiday here in the States, so there’s very little news to report.

We do, however, have a trio of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy...

Tim’s taken a look at the To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story documentary from Dread Central Presents.

David has given due consideration to the epic 2017 Russian historical actioner Furious from Well Go USA.

And Dennis has checked out Stephen Brio’s horror film Song of Solomon from Unearthed Films.

Do give them a look, if you’re interested.

The only bit of home video news we have today is that Media Blaster’s Zatoichi: Darkness Is His Ally (aka Zatoichi 1989) Blu-ray finally seems to be shipping from Amazon. I expect to have it in hand in the next couple of days, so I’ll let you know if it’s actually a real thing and what the quality is like in a full review soon. [Read on here...]

All right, we’re kicking things off today with four more reviews...

Tim has posted his thoughts on the Windrider: Special Collection’s Edition Blu-ray from the MVD Rewind Collection. David has checked out Super Troopers 2 on Blu-ray from Fox. And Dennis has a look for you at William H. Macy’s Krystal on good old DVD from Lionsgate.

Meanwhile, I’ve posted my in-depth review of John McTiernan’s original Predator (1987) on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The disc streets today, and you should be aware that the film looks exactly as it should in 4K, with a great transfer that preserves the original grain. The film has never looked better. Note that the package also includes the previous Ultimate Hunter Edition Blu-ray, which still has the excessive DNR.

As for the Predator 3-Film Collection in 4K Ultra HD, know that Predator 2 also features a terrific new native 4K scan, while Predators is a decent 2K DI upsample. The package also includes the same Blu-ray editions as before. [Read on here...]
