Today’s update is just a quick one, but we have more reviews for you and some great announcement news too...

First up, I’ve just taken an in-depth look at Imprint’s new Space: 1999 – The Complete Series Ultimate Edition Blu-ray box set, which is far and away the most comprehensive version of the series released yet on this format. It contains all 48 episodes of the series in 1080p (the Network remasters) with the correct mono & 5.1 audio mixes (not the flawed 5.1 from the Shout! Factory set), PLUS nearly all of the special features from the Network Blu-ray sets, AND nearly all of the recent Shout! Factory exclusive extras, AND all four compilation films too! It even comes with a new 48-page liner notes book, The Making of Space: 1999, by Ian Fryer of Fanderson. Best of all? It’s an ALL REGION release, so there’s not need to have an all-region Blu-ray player to watch the contents. As an Australian import, it’s a little pricey. But if you’re a fan of this series, trust me when I say that this is definitely the Blu-ray set you want.

Also today, our own Tim Salmons has taken a look at Imprint’s new Blu-ray edition of Mike Newell’s The Awakening (1980). And he’s reviewed the recent Scream Factory version of The Awakening as well, for the sake of comparison. [Read on here...]

Sorry for the lack of a news update these past few days, folks, but the truth is there just hasn’t been a lot of announcement news to report on here. There are, however, lots of new Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD titles coming in for review, so that’s what we’ve been focusing on. On that note, we have for you today...

My thoughts on Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs (1991), which is coming to 4K Ultra HD from Kino Lorber Studio Classics (on 10/19) with a fantastic remastered image and a remastered Blu-ray copy too.

My take on Justin Lin’s F9: The Fast Saga as newly-released on 4K Ultra HD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

And my review of Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption (1994) on 4K Ultra HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, a disc that delivers one of the best catalog 4K remasters I’ve seen in a long time.

But that’s not all: We also have Tim’s take on Sandy Harbutt’s Stone (1974) on Blu-ray from Umbrella Entertainment.

And Tim’s review of Dario Argento’s The Cat O’Nine Tails (1971) on 4K Ultra HD from Arrow Video. [Read on here...]

All right, sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, but we’ve been swamped working on new disc reviews for you guys. And in fact, over the last few days, we’ve posted several of them, including...

My take on Paramount’s new Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection which includes the theatrical edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, both versions of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home on both 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Disc.

My in-depth look at David Lynch’s Dune: Limited Edition in 4K Ultra HD from Arrow Video, featuring a gorgeous remastered image and both new and legacy extras.

And also my look at Random Space Media’s recent Battlestar Galactica: The Definitive Collection 36-disc Blu-ray box set, which contains the original 1979 feature film, the original TV series, Galactica 1980, the more recent reboot TV series (plus its tie-in films), and—for the first time in Region A—Caprica: The Complete Series.

But that’s not all: Stephen has posted a review of Paul Morrissey’s Blood for Dracula in 4K Ultra HD from Severin Films.

And Tim has reviewed Smokey and the Bandit on 4K Ultra HD from Universal.

Tim’s also turned in his thoughts on Via Vision’s Hammer Horror: Four Gothic Horror Films box set, which includes Countess Dracula, Hands of the Ripper, Twins of Evil, and Vampire Circus on Blu-ray. [Read on here...]
