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.
