  1. Not that I’ve heard. Paramount hasn’t shown any interest in releasing titles from this era on the format. Heck, I believe they only have 2 pre-‘90s titles, and they’re the usual sequel/remake/anniversary tie-ins.
  2. It’s gonna be in one of those cardboard promo things, so I’d imagine there’ll be a couple of copies even in the all-but-de-media-fied stores. The Best Buy near me still had a huge home video section the last time I went, but the one by my family back home has been gutted to near-nothing, and it definitely sucks.
  3. Update on Hannibal's performance and what the near-future of UHD BD (or, well, lack of it) looks to hold for KLSC:
  4. I don't really have any fascinating updates to share, alas. I was hired by an online travel guide startup out of college. Eighteen and a half years later (!), I'm still here, although we've changed hands a few times, so now I get to say that I'm a senior software engineer for USA TODAY. Still live in the Upstate of South Carolina.
  5. If you do the Disney Movie Rewards thing, you can get Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 for 2000 points. (And they still have Thor: Ragnarok. The first Avengers remains out of stock.)
  6. Amazon is listing Pan’s Labyrinth, complete with cover art, as a future UHD BD release.
  7. I was wondering the exact same thing. Although I'm not sure how often that happens. Universal seems to be reserving Ultra HD Blu-ray releases for themselves, at least if The Thing and Waterworld are any indication. Warner seems to be keen on 2K masters from interpositives for the titles that they've been licensing. Creepshow was among those with a 4K scan, but I'm not sure if Warner actually finished it in 4K. (I see many references to "4K scan" with a quick search, but nothing about the final master. I don't actually have the disc yet, so I'm not sure if that's clarified in the remastering featurette.) So it might be a case of the most compelling titles aren't actually in 4K, and the titles that are in 4K aren't all that compelling. I'm not sure what the story was with Hannibal, but at least based on the MGM titles available to Kino, it was probably the best of a lousy lot. I'm sure it'll be a stunner, and it looks as if KLSC pulled out all the stops, but I kind of had to pinch my nose to order it. (Should be here early next week!) It's important to me to support an indie label that's testing these waters, but I could cheerfully go the rest of my life without ever suffering through Hannibal again.
  8. My biggest gripe with the game at the moment is the number of missions where you drive all the way across the map, talk a bit, and...that's it. Especially when there are several of those in a row. I'm enjoying it a lot more than the indifferent shrugs of the previews had me expecting.
  9. Scream Factory on the feasibility of Ultra HD Blu-ray releases (around the 1:40:00 mark in the podcast):
  10. Good Lord. I'm struggling to beat the secret boss. (I can get to the last sequence of the last phase, but the pattern is more than I can handle.) I cannot comprehend a world in which I'd be able to defeat him without taking any damage. Edit! I replayed it with my wife, and that made the final section a cakewalk. Got it on our first try. Still don’t think 100% is in the cards, thanks to the boss battles, but I think we might do everything else.
  11. Looking like we'll get the three Iron Man movies in August as well. That'd just leave Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, and -- still annoyed that they didn't release this to tie into the sequel -- Ant-Man.
  12. Glory has popped up on a few Scandinavian sites as an early August release. We might hear something about a U.S. release soon.
  13. Best Buy is offering $10 in rewards with preorders.
  14. Looks like Well Go is releasing their first Ultra HD Blu-ray title: Shadow, on August 13th.
