All right, we’re rounding out the week with another trio of new disc reviews...

First, Tim has turned in this thoughts on Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat (2021) in 4K Ultra HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Stephen has offered a review of Robert Aldrich’s Vera Cruz (1954), an influential UA/MGM titles new on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

And I’ve taken a look at The Little Rascals: The ClassicFlix Restorations – Volume 2 on Blu-ray, which includes the next set of 11 vintage shorts from 1930 to 1931.

More reviews are on the way for next week, so be sure to check back for them. [Read on here...]
