(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.)
It’s time for another physical media round-up! Look, I get it – you’re trying to declutter, you don’t want a bunch of Blu-ray discs all over your place. “Why buy a physical copy when I can just stream everything?” you might ask. Maybe I’m crazy, but I still think there’s something sacred about physical media. To be able to have the film you want when you want it, no hassle – unless you consider getting up and popping a disc into a player to be a hassle, in which case you’re just being lazy. It’s worth remembering that not every movie is available to stream. And even things that currently are streaming always stand the risk of expiring. That’ll never happen with your physical media.
This week on Blu-ray, there’s a sequel to the longest running horror franchise, a sequel to the lamest running Disney franchise, an existential haunted house movie and the directorial debut of Freddy Krueger. These are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
