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...]

We have some new announcement news for you today, but first more reviews...

I’ve posted my thoughts on Marvel’s Black Widow in 4K Ultra HD, directed by Cate Shortland. And surprise, the film is finally available to order from Amazon.com, so there’s that.

Also today, Tim has reviewed Michael Chaves’ The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It in 4K UHD from Warner Bros. Note that the studio is now calling it The Conjuring 3 just to avoid confusion.

And finally, Dennis has turned in his two cents on George Stevens’ A Place in the Sun (1951) as newly-released on Blu-ray as part of the Paramount Presents line-up.

More reviews are coming tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for them. [Read on here...]
