We have two more new disc reviews for you this afternoon, as well as more announcement news—including a couple of surprise titles. But first those reviews...

Tim has turned in his thoughts on John Lafia’s Child’s Play 2 (1990) in 4K Ultra HD from Scream Factory.

And Dennis has offered his take on Atom Egoyan’s Exotica (1994) on regular Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

As always, more reviews are on the way in the days ahead, so be sure to watch for them.

Now then... the big news today is that Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has just made Jordan Peele’s Nope official for release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 10/25, with the Digital release due on 9/20. It appears that both the Blu-ray and 4K presentations will feature a variable aspect ratio that shifts between 2.20 and 1.78 to preserve the theatrical IMAX experience. [Read on here...]

Afternoon, folks! Today’s update is a quick one, but we’ve got a couple good things for you.

First, Tim and I have completed a review of Arrow’s new Flash Gordon: Limited Edition in 4K Ultra HD. The new 20th anniversary restoration (licensed from Studio Canal) is fantastic. I’ve never seen the film looking better.

Arrow’s release is a 2 disc set with Flash Gordon in 4K on one disc and the Life After Flash documentary on the other. Studio Canal’s UK release is more elaborate and I’ll be working on a review of that over the weekend, so watch for that here at The Bits on Monday.

Meanwhile, Warner has finally made Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket official for release on 4K Ultra HD and Digital on 9/22. As was the case with 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, the film has been remastered in 4K from the original 35mm camera negative under the supervision of Kubrick’s longtime personal assistant, Leon Vitali. The presentation will include HDR10 high dynamic range along with the existing English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. [Read on here...]
