How many times can Fox Home Video repackage Die Hard? How many licks are there in a Tootsie Roll? No one knows! To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of one of the greatest action films of all time Fox is releasing a special edition steel book Blu-ray Box Set at Walmart and Best Buy, but most importantly a brand new tasty 4K UHD release will be available.
The folks at Fox Home video are releasing brand new box sets for Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly. Fans who purchase the Buffy set will receive an official “Buffy” Comic-Book With Exclusive Cover and those who get the new Firefly Blu-ray set will get a “Firefly” Poster and Collectible Cards. Sadly there’s still no Buffy Blu-ray box, which is ridiculous considering an HD version of Buffy has been airing in Syndication for the last few years so we know it exists. I just hope they improve the SD quality because the original set had a horrible, nearly unwatchable transfer.
How many times can Fox Home Video and MGM repackage the Bond movies? I mean really, I think I have 4 copies of every bond film. Even saying that, I feel dirty because the new collectible covers the new set arriving this September looks kind of gorgeous. Of course this is the collection that finally includes the Digital copy codes. Grrr…..
How many times can Fox Home Video dip into the Die Hard collection well? Apparently one more time. The new collection comes in a Nakatomi Shaped box! That’s right you can own a pre-John McClane Nakatomi Plaza!
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the third time Fox has released the complete Rocky Set. I have the feeling this is timed to coincide with the brand new Broadway show that also launched in the last few weeks. Whatever the case, I’m always down for a solid Rocky marathon. This awesome new Rocky Heavyweight Collector’s set includes all six Rocky films in a beautiful slimmed down case and grittier box art. I’m not going to review all six films here because, let’s face it, if you don’t know what Rocky is by now, then you don’t care or have any taste in films and most likely you wouldn’t buy this set anyway. Just saying.
You can’t keep a good man or in the case of Hollywood franchise down. A Good Day to Die Hard is the 4th installment in the popular action franchise. The DigitalHD version is now available for download through your favorite download services (iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Cinemanow, etc.) – a good two weeks ahead of its June 4th, Blu-ray release. Fox Home Video provided a digital code so I can take a gander on iTunes.
Winner of several technical Oscars and Best Director, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi gets an absolutely gorgeous HD transfer in a nice full featured, simple Blu-ray package. After watching this, it is hard to argue that the movie did not deserve the Oscars that it received. Clearly a visionary feast for the eyes.
One of the Summer’s most anticipated movies is now available on Blu-ray. To many it set the high-watermark for sci-fi blockbusters, for others it was a plodding mess. How does it do removed from all the hype and in a home setting? Michelle has your answer.
