    I finally arrived at a point where I only want to buy movies I’m excited about.  
     
    Blood for Dracula?  Terminal Island? That Scanner Cop double feature? If they were coming out this time last year, I’m sure I would’ve grabbed them without thinking twice, but I just don’t feel motivated now.
     
    Even something like Wolf of Wall St., Inglourious Basterds, or I Spit on Your Grave — all movies I’ve watched and enjoyed, although “enjoy” isn’t exactly the right word for ISoYG — I just don’t feel an itch to upgrade.  The Shawshank Redemption might be there too…not sure right now.  Universal Classic Monsters will depend on reviews.
     
    Labyrinth and Almost Famous, sure.  Deep Red, without question.  Criterion’s opening UHD salvo.  Even Scream Factory’s onslaught of Halloween sequels, yeah, those are movies that mean a lot to me.  Okay, not 5, but I can’t break myself of completionism that quickly!
     
    I knew my “I’ll buy anything a boutique label puts out in UHD to show my support!” had a shelf life, and I guess it’s in the rear view mirror now.
     
    And part of it is that, after nearly four years in our current place, I finally have permanent, proper movie storage.  The idea is that this big bank of shelves is all I’m allotted for Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray, and when it’s full, I can’t get anything new without getting rid of something else.  And it was overflowing immediately, so I’ve had to cull hundreds and hundreds of movies.  (I think the capacity is around 2,700 BDs.) I was already at a point where my interest in buying things out of a sense of obligation or just blindly buying anything that looked compellingly weird was diminishing, but it’s really gone now.
     
    Of titles that’ve been announced, I think Black Widow, Misery, Silence of the Lambs, From Dusk Till Dawn, Scream, The Suicide Squad, the four Criterions, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers are my essential UHD pickups.  (Although I’m sure there’ll be more, since the windows between announcement and release are almost non-existent anymore.)
     
    On the Blu-ray side of things, I’m looking at The Naked Spur, The Snake Girl and the Silver-Haired Witch, Onibaba, Trick or Treats, High Sierra, the complete Superman: TAS, Josie and the Pussycats, Sailor Suit and Machine Gun, Phantom of the Mall, the huge Shawscope collection…it’s a more eclectic list than the relatively safe UHD list, but those are all titles I feel really good about wanting to have in my collection and stand a good chance of being watched more than once.
     
    I’ve fallen off gaming to a point.  I think more than anything, I’m just not in a place where I want to commit 30-150 hours to any one thing right now.  I’ve been sitting on FF7 Intergrade and Tokyo Mirage Sessions for months but can’t feel motivated to get started.  I keep looking at P5R and AC: Valhalla on sale but the timesink just makes my stomach turn.  I’m sure that’ll change at some point (since I have months’ worth of interesting games coming out in March alone!), but 2021 will not go down as one of my favorite years for gaming.

    Adam I’m in the same boat. I moved last Summer and got rid of a ton of disc and made the decision to go primarily digital. Also in terms of gaming, I just don’t have as much free time so I stick with GamePass as my primary source of that entertainment.

    You get to not deal with your PS5 thinking you want to play the PS4 version of the game, and trying to install it, which was an issue I had with Sackboy. 
     
    Even with price parity, you’re actually getting less with the PS5 disc version since the PS5 disc won’t give you access to the PS4 version.

    Yes, there was price parity for both of those games.  Sackboy launched at $59.99 on the PS4 and $59.99 on the PS5.  Miles Morales was $49.99 on the PS4 and $49.99 on the PS5 (although the Ultimate Edition was pricier).

    I really hope there aren’t many other cross-gen exclusives left on their roadmap. I’m pretty much ready to move the fuck on, already.
    Not that I think any of those games are going to be bad or that they won’t be amazeballs visually, either. I’m just really wanting these development teams to be focused 100% on the PS5 hardware.

    Of note:
     
     
    That tells me there is no PS4 to PS5 free upgrade at all here. You’re paying a premium for the right to have access to both. I’m getting the standard edition on the PS5 so it’s a non-issue for me but that’s pretty shitty for those that haven’t been able to get a PS5. The fact that the two most expensive editions have a steel book but don’t include a physical version of the game is also laughable and dumber than shit as far as I’m concerned. I don’t bother with bonkers expensive CE’s anymore and haven’t for years but that’s just even less incentive to bother.

    Hmm. It seems Criterion must have thought similarly as their November release of Uncut Gems will now also be getting a UHD:

    I was kind of a latecomer to this franchise (unless you count the boring demo on the 360), only really getting into it with III, but...geez, did I fall in love with that game.  I even ponied up for the ridiculous collector's edition of IV with the Dubstep Gun replica and all that stuff.  Heck, I even platinum'ed Agents of Mayhem!  I'm super, super excited about this.

    The biggest reason I think it may be Some Like It Hot is because Kino Lorber have picked up so many other Billy Wilder films (that we know there’s a 4K master sure doesn’t hurt either), but I’d be thrilled with any of the three you’ve mentioned.
