BatmanKillingJokeTheatrical

I will never understand why the DCU doesn’t release some of their animated films into the theater, at least for limited engagements. I mean usually their stuff blows away a lot of the major studio releases. Looks like they are going to test the waters this summer with a one time showing Batman: The Killing Joke.

Outlander The Ultimate Edition Blu-ray Out Now!

outlander

Everyone knows how much I loathe the Pt1 and Pt2 tv season split scam – especially when it leads to multiple “season” releases of the show on Blu-ray/Digital. Outlander fans who have waited patiently for a proper full season release can rejoice. Sony Home Video has finally released the full series in a gorgeous, Limited Edition Blu-ray set. Don’t get too excited though, Outlander: Season One The Ultimate Collection will give many folks sticker SHOCK.

The $164 dollar package ($104 on Amazon), comes in a beautiful box and includes a book, engraved flask (for $164, I expect some gin or something in there), a collection of photographs, a 45-minute Outlander yule log and the soundtrack. Plus you get the full season on Ultraviolet although at that price the cheapskates should throw the iTunes version as well.

Disney’s Aladdin is now On Digital and out on Blu-ray Oct 13!

AladdinDiamondBlurayRev

It’s time for me to finally watch Disney’s Aladdin now that the classic animated film is available in glorious HD on Disney’s awesome MoviesAnywhere platform. If you are old school like me and prefer physical media it hits Blu-ray, October 13th.  The Blu-ray/HD is packed with all the standard features we expect from a Disney release – sing along tracks, a look at the Broadway production, extras from the original DVD release and more. The Blu-ray w/Digital Copy and the Digital Copy version are $19.99. Wait two weeks and get the blu-ray version, it’s a no brainer.
