Great now I'll always be thinking to myself "if Howard the Duck gets a 4k release, why the hell doesn't *insert literally any movie*?!"

Happy for blu-ray.com to be back up so I can once again experience such hard whiplash from 4k announcement listings like this.



I'm not sure how much more Hi-Def I can handle for this one.

Iíd buy Manos in 4K provided itís based off of the really nice blu-ray that got Kickstarted a while back.

I'm looking forward to Shout Factory's upcoming release of King Kong(1976). Apparently there's an extended cut that was only aired once on television with like almost an hour of additional footage.

Why would you want more of the 1976 King Kong?

There's a lot of problems with Howard the Duck, but it isn't the set design, costuming or cinematography. I think it'd look great on 4k UHD.

For anyone wondering about their easter Arrow sale orders from Grindhouse Video, this is on their home page:

quote:

Grindhouse Video will be closed for a short time. On 4/26 Paypal froze our account and all funds due to the Arrow Sale and the large amount of orders that came in even though we contacted them during the sale to avoid this situation. We cannot currently ship any packages due to the funds being frozen so instead of taking orders that we cannot fill at this time we are closing the site until the Paypal issue solved.

If you are looking for information about your Arrow Sale order, please know that we are (well, we were) working as fast as possible to ship all orders out. The issue with Paypal is going to make us miss our goal of having all orders out by May 7th. We will give further details once we are able to ship again.

We will not be answering phone calls at this time. If you need anything, please email us at info@grindhousevideo.com. Please do not email asking when your order will ship. We do not know at this time.

Local customers can still pick up their orders in the store Monday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm.

Aside from the region 2 BR2, the UHD should have no region locks per the standard.

Just want to confess to a new personal low today. I bought a UHD and there were no copies on the shelf that has slipcovers, but the standard blu rays DID have slip covers so I took one off a regular blu ray and put it on the UHD.

It's ok, until you put a slipcover of a movie you already have onto a different movie you don't have yet so you can get the slip and a new movie.

I got my UHDs of Flash Gordon and Tremors the other day, thankfully before that whole PP mess

Flash Gordon - all the gold on the costumes really pop and sparkle. The crazy swirly aether (donít know what else to call it) looks great too. There is some shoddy compositing on display but itís not that distracting given the movie.

Tremors - most of the entire movie is shot outdoors in bright sunlight so itís not too surprising it looks great. All the pebbles and stuff in the sand really highlight the detail available in 4K. The miniature shots really hold up too; none of them are very obvious. The matte painting of the cliff is by far the most glaring thing that stands out.

Don't care, I'm mainly after the practical benefit of the slipcase which is protecting the plastic on the actual case so it doesn't get that bubbling effect.

I always toss slipcases, except in cases like the steelbook Ultramans where the slipcase keeps the book in place or something
