@dielinfinite I haven’t. I only relatively recently found out she was in it.

A few recent pickups.

Bummed to hear Best Buy will discontinue the sale of physical media early next year. This was probably what made me pull the trigger on the steelbook edition of ‘The Blob’ (1988).

@00slim dang, I hadn’t heard of that! Sucks that physical media is getting a smaller and smaller presence

I’d better load up on any Best Buy exclusive releases I’ve had my eye on

Here’s a few interesting thoughts from Christopher Nolan on the importance of, state of, and future of film on physical media

In case somone missed it, James Cameron’s The Abyss and True Lies are FINALLY getting a blu ray release in March! The Abyss is actually getting a special theatrical screening on Wednesday so check to see if your local movie house will be screening it!


I’m a bit conflicted since my theater has a bunch of special screenings this Wednesday at the same time including the afromentioned Abyss, pluss an early screen of the new Miyazaki movie The Boy and the Heron (though it has a general release this weekend anyways so not a big deal), and Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Damn, I underestimated how popular the Abyss screening would be. Just got my tickets and we’re seating in the second row on the far left because almost every other seat was already taken

Arrow store exclusive 4k release of Tremors 2: Aftershocks.

The cover art & poster are reversible to show newly commissioned art or the original poster art. As in this case, I’m typically partial to original poster art, as shown on the case with the cast on the truck.

So, my buddy helped me out & built me a PLEX server. Basically, a network connected drive to store all my movies. He’s only about 100 movies in to ripping all my physical media. 600 to go!

But it’ll be sweet to have everything stored digitally (with back-ups).

@00slim Yup! But I don’t think I can bear to part with my original dvd set. I really like having the seasons individually packaged over trying to fit them in a single (well in this case 2) package for the most efficiency

So excited to finally grab this, the Japanese release of Battlestar Galactica Season 4! On the surface there’s nothing remarkable about this but it is actually the ONLY physical release of the Face of the Enemy web series that was released in the mid-season gap of season 4. It’s not even on the Peacock streaming platform!

Cheapest price on ebay was about $60 (and only got more expensive) but I was able to find a copy off an import site called Suruga-Ya for under $40 with a free shipping promotion. It even arrived a day early from Japan!

The Webisodes are available online but Youtube only has episodes 1-9 and DailyMotion has episode 10. for some reason they don’t allow episode 10 to be uploaded at all. Either on its own or in a compilation

A couple new acquisitions!




I’d started The Expanse but never picked up Season 4 since I wasn’t sure if Amazon would release seasons 5 & 6 on blu ray. They finally released them late last year along with a complete series set. The series set is currently on sale for about $53 and the individual sets for $26. Since I still needed season 4, the complete series was far more economical.

As with most Amazon blu ray releases, these are barebones with no bonus features. The complete series is also fairly lazy as they just repackage the previous blu ray sets, albeit with the new logo. Still, I’m glad they released the remaining seasons!

Just a heads up that the 4k releases of:

Aliens

The Abyss

True Lies

Are all up for pre-order on Amazon!

Both The Abyss & True Lies have been stuck in DVD format for ages in the U.S.

Nice! I need to see what my Aliens box set is. Might be time to upgrade.

A few (mostly) silly movies I upgraded from DVD.
