new blu-ray releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

What a great week for Blu-rays. The Criterion Collection has two must-have releases this week: Jonathan Demme‘s Silence of the Lambs and George A. Romero‘s Night of the Living Dead. Beyond that, we have The Bird With the Crystal Plumage and Re-Animator from Arrow Video, the under-seen drama Only the Brave, and the Lyndon Johnson biopic LBJ. Last but not least, we have an exclusive clip from Roman J. Israel, Esq.

Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Thor Ragnarok deleted scene

After the bland Thor: The Dark World, Taika Waititi completely turned the Thor franchise around with last year’s Thor: Ragnarok by making one of the funniest films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s also one of the strangest, and as a newly-released Thor Ragnarok deleted scene reveals, it was almost even stranger.

Take a look at the new scene below, which features a bizarre hologram of Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster, and some nice banter between Thor and Bruce Banner. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Intro Video - Taika Waititi

Last year’s blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok will be available on Blu-ray and DVD next month, and it will include a slew of bonus features, including deleted scenes, featurettes that go behind the scenes of the making of the movie, a brand new short film featuring Thor’s former roommate Darryl shacking up with The Grandmaster, and much more.

One of the special features is a little introduction to the movie by director Taika Waititi, and it’s every bit as funny as Thor: Ragnarok. In the video, he talks about which movies they were trying to emulate, such as My Fair Lady and Independence Day, and the struggles he had living up to his parents’ aspirations for him to be J.J. Abrams instead. The Thor Ragnarok intro video is the perfect way to set the stage for Marvel’s cosmic adventure. Read More »

Beyond that, there’s Sam Raimi’s return to over-the-top horror following the Spider-Man series; a glorious B-movie about killer robots who are also school teachers; a surreal dramatization about the writing of Frankenstein; Gerard Butler fighting the weather; a reboot of the Saw franchise; and an Ethan Hawke action movie.

justice league

Try as they might, Zack Snyder fans won’t be getting the director’s special cut of Justice League they’ve been demanding. They may not even get the extended cut that was rumored to be included in the movie’s Blu-ray release. Instead, it seems like fans will have to content themselves with only one bonus scene that wasn’t included in Justice League‘s theatrical cut.

Ready for the latest Blu-ray round-up? I sure hope so, because it’s here, right in front of your eyes. This week, one of the best and most over-looked films of 2017 comes to Blu-ray. And that’s not the only overlooked film hitting shelves! An unjustly ignored 1993 comedy from the director of Gremlins receives a special collector’s edition from Shout! Factory! In addition to that, there’s a star-studded Agatha Christie adaptation (no, not that one), and a John Ford classic from the Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

The breakfast Club Criterion Blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Happy New Year! 2018 is just getting started – there’s going to be a whole slew of exciting new Blu-ray titles to hit shelves this year. But first, here are some so-so films!

What we mostly have here are what I’d like to think of as holiday leftovers – films that weren’t big enough to hit stores as part of the holiday shopping rush. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing of value here. In fact, there are some surprisingly good titles, including a Jackie Chan movie that rises above its premise, a Watergate-based drama, a survivalist film where Kate Winslet and Idris Elba crash a plane and then get sexy, and more. There’s also a surprisingly controversial new release from The Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

It, the surprisingly great film adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel, arrives on Digital HD today, and Blu-ray very soon.
