midsommar director's cut blu-ray

Ari Aster‘s Midsommar was already long to begin with, but the director’s cut clocks in at a whopping 171 minutes. While the director’s cut was previously screened in select theaters and has been available to purchase digitally, it hasn’t been made available on Blu-ray in the U.S. – until now. A24 is releasing a special edition Midsommar director’s cut on 4K in July, complete with new artwork and a written foreword by none other than Martin Scorsese.

Flash Gordon 4K

The campy sci-fi classic Flash Gordon is finally getting the proper home video release it deserves. Based on the comic strip of the same name by Alex Raymond, the movie directed by Mike Hodges, starring Sam J. Jones, and featuring an epic soundtrack from the rock band Queen was a bit of a box office flop back in 1980 that attempted to capitalize on the popularity of sci-fi in the wake of the success of Star Wars. But now the movie is a cult classic, and it’s getting a 4K restoration that will be released on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD this summer. Read More »

jaws 4k

In 1975, a fledgling filmmaker named Steven Spielberg released a little movie about a big shark. It went on to become the prototypical summer blockbuster, and turned Spielberg into a household name. That movie is, of course, Jaws, and it remains an all-time classic – the type of film that is somehow endlessly rewatchable from beginning to end. There have been many home media releases of Jaws over the years, but to mark the film’s 45th anniversary this June, Universal is going even bigger with the first-ever Jaws 4K release.

new blu-ray releases little women

The coronavirus pandemic is not only effecting movie theaters, it’s also causing some trouble in the home video world, too. As a result, some physical release copies are being delayed while studios push digital. As always, I remain committed to physical media, but for now, I’m going to have to make an exception for some digital releases as well. That’s just how it goes, folks. Case in point: I was unable to get a physical copy of Underwater in time for this column, but I was provided with a digital release. So onto the list it goes. I’m also changing things up a bit. In the past, I was explaining why a film on the list was worth owning. But the fact of the matter is…not every film is worth owning. So instead, I’ll be advising you on whether the film in question is worth buying – or just renting. And now, these are the new Blu-ray releases (and digital releases, too) you should check out this week.
