All right, we’ve got a big week ahead of us here at The Digital Bits. As all of you know, the new James Cameron catalog 4K titles—The Abyss, True Lies, and Aliens—all drop via 4K Digital tomorrow. And we’ve got some big announcement news to share with all of you today as well. But first, we’ve got a new disc review for you...

Stephen has just turned in his thoughts on Kathryn Bigelow’s Point Break (1991) in 4K Ultra HD from Shout! Factory. Enjoy!

Now then... there’s big news today, more big news, and yet another piece of big news. So let’s start with that first one...

Paramount Home Entertainment has just officially set Herbert Ross’ original Footloose (1984) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 2/13/24. We’re awaiting confirmation of the A/V specs on this one, but the title will come in both Amaray and Steelbook packaging, and will have a Blu-ray and Digital copy code. All of the legacy extras from the Blu-ray will carry over. You can see the cover artwork at left and also below. [Read on here...]

All right, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover today to close out the week. But first as always, we have more new disc reviews for you, including at least one from each member of The Bits review team!

First, I’ve posted my in-depth review of James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) in 4K Ultra HD from 20th Century Studios, which is a really beautiful 2K to 4K upsample and remaster. Plus, it carries over nearly four hours worth of extras from the 2010 Blu-ray release, and it features a fantastic and (thankfully!) uncompromised Dolby Atmos mix as well. If you’re a fan, it’s well worth the upgrade. And note that our review of Avatar: The Way of Water in 4K Ultra HD will follow this weekend, so be sure to watch for it.

Also new from Stephen is a review of Peter Greenaway’s Drowning by Numbers (1998) in 4K Ultra HD from Severin Films.

Tim has reviewed Sammo Hung’s Warriors Two (1978) on Blu-ray from Arrow Video, as well as Alex Proyas’ Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds (1989) on Blu-ray from Umbrella Entertainment and Vinegar Syndrome.

Dennis has weighed in with a look at William Edwards’ Dracula (The Dirty Old Man) (1969) on Blu-ray from AGFA and Vinegar Syndrome.

And finally, Stuart has checked in with a look at Maigret: Season 4 (1963), the classic BBC TV series, which comes to Blu-ray from Kino Classics.

Now then, in announcement news today, our friends at The Criterion Collection have unveiled their September release slate! [Read on here...]

All right, it’s been a week since we’ve had a news update here at the site, and the reason is two-fold: First, there just hasn’t been a lot of news to report. And second, given that fact, we’ve all been working hard on a TON of new disc reviews here at The Bits. In fact, I’ve personally pledged to post a new 4K Ultra HD review each day all this week here at The Bits. So we’ll start today with the ones I’ve completed so far...

Now available for your reading enjoyment are my reviews of Paramount’s Halo: Season One – Limited Edition Steelbook, Kino Lorber Studio Classics’ Mystery Men, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Elf and A Christmas Story, all in 4K Ultra HD. But the guys have been busy too...

To this, Tim has added his thoughts on Douglas Trumbull’s Silent Running (4K UHD) and The Count Yorga Collection (Blu-ray) from Arrow Video, the Species: Collector’s Edition (4K UHD) from Scream Factory, and Quiet Days in Clichy (4K UHD) from Blue Underground.

Stephen has contributed his takes on Married to the Mob (Blu-ray), Vortex (Blu-ray), and The Iceman Cometh (Blu-ray) from Vinegar Syndrome, Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons (4K UHD) from Warner, Golden Boy (Blu-ray) from Imprint, X (4K UHD) from Capelight Pictures, and The Sporting Club (Blu-ray) from Kino Lorber.

And Dennis has offered his take on the Barfly: Limited Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray) and Storm Center (Blu-ray) both from Imprint.

As I said a moment ago, still more reviews are on the way all this week, so be sure to keep checking back for them. [Read on here...]
