Wizard of OZ Goes 4K UHD!!!!! It’s my Dream UHD Release!

As the song goes, “Oh a happy day. Oh, happy day!” One of my dream 4K UHD releases was announced today – The Wizard of Oz is getting a 4K UHD Release on Digital and 4K UHD Combo Pack on October 29th! There’s nothing about the BS 2 week window, so I’m hoping this truly will be both formats will release on the same day. I’m so tired of having to wait 2 weeks for the physical release.

Beyond the fact that The Wizard of OZ is probably in my top 4 favorite films of all time, it’s also very colorful and had frame by frame restoration done a few years ago and already looks fantastic on Blu-ray so it should look stunning in 4K HDR.  Also of note, it will support Dolby Vision HDR. This time they are using an 8K, 16 bit scan. Wow. All of this goodness is going to come at an astounding $42 price tag. Really Warner Home Video? This better be a glorious full screen presentation.

A Cinderella Story: A Christmas Wish is Coming?

Ok, I’ve never stated this publicly but I LOVE WB’s Cinderella movies. I’m a romantic at heart and the cheesier the story the better, which explains my love of Christmas movies. So here you combine Christmas Rom-Com with the Cinderella Story franchise and it’s an instant win for me. A Cinderella Story: A Christmas Wish is the 5 the fifth movie in Warner Brother’s Cinderella Franchise which has featured Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale. Wait, 5th? There’s a 4th movie out there that I somehow missed. Need to look this up stat!

Update – I wasn’t kidding about watching the 4th movie – A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits. My god, the horror. The first 3 movies are like Citizen Kane to this dreck. Turned it off after 20 minutes. It’s unwatchable. Here’s hoping the series is returned to form with the upcoming installment.

Avengers: Endgame 4K UHD Digital Review and Clips

What up home sickles. I hate myself, even though I per-ordered the 4K UHD version of Avengers: Endgame, I couldn’t help myself. I still purchased the 4K UHD version on Vudu.  I checked out all the extra features and spot checked the Video and Audio Quality. The full video review is below along with some clips. I will have a full 4K UHD Review for you in a few weeks. Problem with doing reviews of streaming quality is, it’s very much dependent on the quality of your internet connection. So my experience streaming this may be different than yours.
