|Vault Master's Pick of the Week for 11/22!|
As has been the case lately, I'm a little behind on reporting the new Blu-ray and 4K releases, so this week is another double-up edition to get ya'll caught up on all the new stuff that you may want to add to your growing collections! Last week had a pretty solid lineup of new titles on both formats with Kino Lorber putting out MYSTERY MEN and HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER on 4K UHD, as well as new Blu-rays of THE BLOOD BEAST TERROR and Season 3 of NIGHT GALLERY!
Scream Factory delivered an all new 4K release of THE COMPANY OF WOLVES (a fantastical retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood" that is at times visually stunning, but isn't really my cup of tea), while, Blue Underground gave the time travel classic THE FINAL COUNTDOWN its 4K debut, and Dark Force Entertainment released a trio of their popular Drive-In Double Features!
But despite all that good stuff, I chose Shout Factory's 4K debut of the original ROLLERBALL as my pick of the week! Along with the new 4K transfer, the disc comes with two audio commentaries, trailers, and a handful of archival featurettes about the making of this classic dystopian sci-fi flick!
|Vault Master's Pick of the Week for 11/29!|
Moving on to this week, well... there really isn't a whole lot gang. Discotek Media brings THE LEGEND OF DINOSAURS AND MONSTER BIRDS to Blu-ray for the first time, Cauldron Films dropped exclusive special edition releases of SHANGHAI JOE and CONVOY BUSTERS, and Season 4 of WESTWORLD arrived on both Blu-ray and 4K UHD!
The winner of my "coveted" pick of the week was easy this time around Vault Dwellers: Vinegar Syndrome's gorgeous 4K release of Tobe Hooper's TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2! Along with a pristine-looking transfer, this 2-disc set is absolutely loaded with special features including FOUR audio commentaries, an extended making-of documentary, new and archival cast & crew interviews, multiple featurettes, trailers, deleted scenes, and MORE! This release was limited to 10,000 copies, so if you see one online (or in the wild) jump on it fast!
Naturally there are plenty of other titles I didn't mention, so be sure to scroll onward to see the full list of new Blu-rays and 4K UHDs that came out over the past two weeks!
