    Tuesday Round Up: January 24th, 2017

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by Gino Sassani on January 24th, 2017

    Howdy, Partners. Johnny’s a bit out to sea at the moment. Actually, he’s taking a cruise with Katie on that long-overdue honeymoon. I sure hope Tom Hanks isn’t driving the boat. Guess you’ll find out next week. For now, you’re stuck with me for this week’s release/review round-up.

    Lionsgate is down for David Bowie’s cult classic The Man Who Fell To Earth in a collector’s edition Blu-ray. Baby will fill us in on A Dog’s Purpose in this week’s theatrical releases. National Geographic and Fox will scare up Sea Monsters on DVD. Maybe I should have passed that one on to John. It’s a slow week but there’s tons of stuff on the horizon.

    And, Partners, don’t forget. If you’ll be making that video withdrawal from Amazon, lasso yourself one of our many links to get there. It helps keep us going here on the Upcomingdiscs ranch. Until next week, share some light with someone this week… television light, that is.

    The Founder

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on January 23rd, 2017

    “I know what you’re thinking: How the heck does a 52-year old milkshake machine salesman build a fast food empire with over 1600

    restaurants and an annual income over $700 million? One word:” The Founder.

    When I was very young, my mother dressed up as Ronald McDonald for a McDonalds block party for a charity benefit. In those days McDonalds helped organize these things, including the provision of said Ronald McDonald outfit. I was just a kid, but seeing my mother put on the costume kind of killed the last of the childhood fantasies. I guess we all thought Ronald was the guy who invented McDonalds. We thought he was the founder. I figured that was the big reveal. That was until I saw The Founder,

    Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Seventh and Final Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on January 17th, 2017

    The premise here was always dirt simple. They’ve taken the buddy cop idea and found a way to work in the forensics science fad and deliver a procedural with a few twists. The show is based on a series of mystery novels by Tess Gerritsen, who introduced us to Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles in 2001. Tess makes a cameo appearance in this, the show’s final season. The season is shorter than the usual 18 shows. There are 13, and in all of them you can feel the weight of the characters and their situations counting down until the final episode of the series. You’ll be able to see where that’s going pretty much from the beginning. After seven years, you can look forward to a tearful goodbye as the show exits on its own terms.

    OPPO UDP-203 Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on January 16th, 2017

    The young Ultra High Definition Blu-ray market has pretty much been a limited competition between a couple of players. Upcomingdiscs obtained an early version of the Samsung player in order to get UHD 4K reviews to our readers. The player allowed me to do that but had so many limitations that those reviews certainly suffered. The most obvious was an inability to provide codec bitrates. All of that changes now that Oppo has entered the UHD market. Oppo is no stranger to 4K. Previous models that we’ve reviewed here already provided rather sweet 4K upconvert options to early adopters of 4K televisions. We received our unit during the holidays, and I have been putting it through some serious paces. Needless to say this will be our go-to unit going forward. However long you think the UHD market has been out there, it truly begins with the release of the Oppo UDP-203

    Star Trek: Enterprise: The Complete Series

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on January 16th, 2017

    “It’s been a long time getting from there to here.”

    35 years, to be exact. Enterprise is the fourth spinoff from the original 1960’s hopeful series. The Earth is finally ready to send its first starship to explore the vast galaxy. This first starship Enterprise is smaller than the ships we’ve become used to. There are no shields or photon torpedoes. The transporter has only been cleared for inanimate objects. Not that this stands in the way of its occasional “emergency” use. The ship is very much like the cramped spaces of today’s submarines. It adds an even greater sense of reality to the show. The crew is composed of Captain Jonathan Archer (Bakula), First Officer and Vulcan High Command liaison, T’Pol (Blalock), Chief Engineer Charles (Trip) Tucker (Trinneer)

    Interview With Ice Cube For Fist Fight

    Posted in Uncategorized by Gino Sassani on January 11th, 2017

    On Feb 17th, 2017 Warner Brothers will release the comedy Fist Fight starring Ice Cube and Charlie Day. The two teachers come into conflict when one gets the other fired. An old-fashion afterschool fist fight between the stars is the consequence. I’ll have a chance to tell you my thoughts on the film when it comes out.  I had the rare opportunity to sit down with Ice Cube to talk about the film. Fortunately, he didn’t challenge me to a fight after our talk. You can check out the film in Feb. Click here to watch the video with Ice Cube

This one is about a Danish commander and his weary, overwhelmed young soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. Finally we have Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The True Story Of National Lampoon. That’s six total winners for this contest. Odds look pretty good thanks to our Holiday heroes over at Magnolia Home Entertainment.

    Congratulations To Jeremy Butler And His New Family

    Posted in Site News by Gino Sassani on December 23rd, 2016

    You haven’t heard much from Jeremy Butler for a while. That’s because he spent a few weeks in Japan and didn’t even bring me a pet Godzilla when he returned. What  did he do upon his return? He got married… to two women. Actually he married Jessica, who has a young daughter Nalyce, and the three of them made it official today. I have it on good authority that Jessica has excellent taste in music as well as men. Please join me in welcoming Jessica and Nalyce to the Upcomingdiscs family. We wish them many years of memories and movies together. Congrats guys!

    Posted in Holiday Gift Guides by Gino Sassani on December 23rd, 2016

    I think I see your problem. You have this list. It’s a list of people you need/want to buy a Christmas gift for. The trouble is that they’re into home theatre, and you don’t know Star Trek from Star Wars. You couldn’t tell a Wolf Man from a Wolverine. And you always thought that Paranormal Activity was something too kinky to talk about. Fortunately, Upcomingdiscs has come to the rescue every Christmas with our Gift Guide Spotlights. Keep checking back to see more recommendations for your holiday shopping. These gift guides ARE NOT paid advertisements. We take no money to publish them.

    Hands down the best gift you can give that home theater expert is the new Oppo UDP-203. It’s exactly what I would have asked for if I didn’t already have one fresh off the manufacturing presses.

    We already told you about Mission: Jimmy Stewart And The Fight For Europe. I couldn’t put it down. It was an extra treat for me because I knew I was going to be talking to author Robert Matzen. I finally reached the end and had my conversation with the writer. I found him just as engaging in person as he was in the book. We could have talked for hours. Unfortunately we didn’t have that kind of time. Now you can hear what all the excitement was about. Bang it here to listen in on my chat with Robert Matzen.

    Sully (UHD Blu-ray) (4K)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 21st, 2016

    Clint Eastwood is 86 years old. He is also one of the best film directors working today. His latest film shows no signs of a man winding down his life, let alone his career. I obviously hinted that most other actors (or directors) his age have long ago died or checked into a nursing home. Eastwood looks lean and mean and still directs that way. Eastwood is interesting, as well, because he tends to pick projects that are outside the Hollywood studio corporate thinking. In other words, Eastwood is his own man and does pretty much anything he wants. His films as an actor and director have courted controversy way back to the days of Dirty Harry and A Fistful of Dollars. His films as a director and his personal political views are always full of contradictions that suggest a vibrant, searching mind. Sully is Eastwood’s latest film, starring Tom Hanks, and it is deceptively complex as well. On one level, Sully is a textbook depiction of a famous true life event.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 16th, 2016

    “You have to start somewhere.”

    I could sense a great disturbance in the Force. I could not quite put my finger on the reason, but there appeared to be much to worry about with the debut of the first ever Star Wars film that was not one of the driving episodes in the epic story of the Skywalker family and friends. There was worry that Disney might have been pushing their luck with these sidetrack stories. The Force Awakens was very good, but should the Mouse House really be tempting fate with such “filler” material? Then there were the disturbing reports that the film required so many rewrites that as much as $5 million had been spent on the services of Tony Gilroy to provide those touch-ups
