    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on June 20th, 2017

    The Boogeyman — or at least the man you send to kill the Boogeyman — has arrived at UpcomingDiscs HQ! (Honestly, how bad could he be? The man loves dogs almost as much as we do around these parts.) Lionsgate brings us John Wick: Chapter 2 in 4K, which finds the assassin-of-very-few-words in Rome and New York City as he dodges a worldwide network of killers. Elsewhere, Candy Factory visits Wichita, while Shout! Factory cleans up at the Car Wash. Meanwhile, Comedy Central clocks in with Workaholics: The Final Season. On top of those home video releases, we’ll have a review of the latest entry in everyone’s favorite robots-in-disguise franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, later this week.

    Now it’s time for the customary reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!

    We are right in the thick of Summer Movie Season, which means there is the usual overabundance of superheroes at the cineplex. Fortunately, there’s more than enough action to be found on the small screen as well. Warner Bros. puts the pieces together this week with its release of The Lego Batman Movie in 4K. Warner also takes a bite out of The Vampire Diaries: The Final Season. Meanwhile, Candy Factory RSPVs to The Wedding Party, while Shout! Factory gets high and mighty (but mostly just “high”) with its Blu-ray release of Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie.

    Tuesday Round Up: June 6, 2017

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on June 6th, 2017

    For our first Round Up of June, we are inviting a certain beloved romance to be our guest here at UpcomingDiscs HQ. Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is the highest-grossing movie of the year (so far), and the blockbuster arrives on Blu-ray this week! On top of that, CBS/Paramount has released Beauty and the Beast: The Complete Series, along with complete series DVD sets for CBS hits of yesteryear Numb3rs and Becker. Elsewhere, HBO anoints The Young Pope, RLJ Entertainment locks us in a room with Prisoner X, and Shout! Factory shows us Where The Buffalo Roam. Finally, Disney revisits another animated classic that is near and dear deer to fans’ hearts with a 75th anniversary edition of Bambi.

    The end of the week also brings a trio of theatrical releases: Bleeker Street introduces us to Megan Leavey, Fox Searchlight gets familial with My Cousin Rachel, and Universal unleashes monster mayhem with The Mummy. Even though it’s a brand new month, the customary reminder still applies here: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs.

    I’m not sure what we did, but it must have been serious. We UpcomingDiscers are generally a law-abiding bunch, so I’m a little surprised that we’ve apparently landed in such hot water. How else to explain this week’s arrival of the Major Crimes division at our door? Naturally, I’m yanking your chain…no one here would hurt a fly. The good news is Warner Bros. was still nice enough to send us Major Crimes: Season 5, and we’ll have a review of the hit TNT cop drama soon. Elsewhere, Film Chest Media goes undercover with Decoy: The Complete Series. Finally, DC’s Wonder Woman hopes to lasso moviegoers into theaters very soon, so be sure to check back for our review later this week.

    The surprise box office smash of 2017 has arrived at UpcomingDiscs HQ! (You might not believe me, Elaine, but it’s true.) Universal was generous enough to send along a copy of Get Out, Jordan Peele’s socially-conscious thriller. We’ll have a review of the movie’s Blu-ray release later this week. Meanwhile, Eagle Rock Entertainment does it their way with The Frank Sinatra Collection: The Timex Shows Vol. 1 and 2, while Entertainment One keeps things cool with Ice: Season 1. Finally, Warner Bros. gets animated with Wonder Woman: The Commemorative Edition, which spotlights the Amazonian icon in cartoon form a few weeks before she is set to hit the big screen.

    But wait…there’s more! We’ll also have an out-of-this-world review for Alien: Covenant shortly after Ridley Scott’s latest sci-fi opus hits theaters this Friday. Now it’s time for your customary reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs.

    The official start of summer is only a couple of weeks away, so it’s no surprise that things are starting to Heat up around UpcomingDiscs HQ! Michael Mann’s classic cops-and-robbers action drama — starring screen legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino — gets a spiffy new release with Fox’s Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition. Meanwhile, Universal aims to make things a little steamier with 50 Shades Darker in 4K, while CBS prowls the Streets of San Francisco: The Complete Series. IndiePix Films introduces us to Millie and the Lords, while HBO squabbles and haggles throughout Divorce: Season 1. Finally, this weekend brings a new spin on a very familiar legend as Guy Ritchie’s take on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hits theaters, so be sure to check back for our review.

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on May 2nd, 2017

    This week’s Round Up stars a group of muscle-bound action movie all-stars like we’ve never seen them before! Lionsgate was kind enough to spare copies of The Expendables and The Expendables 2 in 4K, so be sure to check back soon for our reviews. And speaking of icons of yesteryear, Paramount has taken (dance) steps to ensure that John Travolta’s big screen breakout stays alive thanks to Saturday Night Fever: 40th Anniversary Director’s Cut. (Our longtime friend Michael Durr came out of retirement to review this one.) Time Life goes to war with Bob Hope Salutes the Troops, while Passion River Films gets in touch with its artistic side in Saving Banksy. Finally, CBS/Paramount rolls the dice with Vega$: The Complete Series, while Universal spotlights some four-legged friends with A Dog’s Purpose.

    It’s a jungle out there, my friends. And judging by at least one noteworthy arrival this week, it also happens to be a jungle in here at UpcomingDiscs HQ! Warner Bros. was kind enough to send us a copy of Animal Kingdom: Season 1, which is based on the acclaimed Aussie crime drama. Meanwhile, Film Detective is out for blood with The Vampire Bat, and CBS/Paramount carries on The Affair: Season 3. Finally, you can already read our take on Sony’s action-packed The Marine 5: Battleground.

    Hello, my name is John and I am your regular Tuesday Round Up host. But back in my college days, I temporarily adopted an alter ego called “Bruce” when I was heavy into ballroom and swing dancing. (I wish I were kidding.) My two separate personas were absolutely peanuts compared to the 20-something distinct personalities that battle for supremacy inside the mind of Kevin, the main character in Split. M. Night Shyamalan’s latest psychological thriller was the director’s biggest hit in years…and today it arrives on Blu-ray. Be sure to keep an eye on the site for our take. Elsewhere, Candy Factory brings about the end of the world with Apocalypse Child. We’ll also have some Reel World reviews as a pair of new movies hit theaters: things are sure to heat up with the arrival of Free Fire, and we’ll venture to the ends of the Earth (and the ends of the alphabet) to find The Lost City of Z.

    Election season is firmly in the rearview mirror, but I reckon this week’s weekly Round Up could easily be dubbed “Super Tuesday.” Veep is in its second term as the Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series…that being said, I’m not sure anything in this fiercely funny and profane show can match the levels of ridiculata we’ve already witnessed in real life. You’ll get a chance to cast your vote this week as the brilliant HBO comedy’s fifth season arrives on Blu-ray. And speaking of brilliant HBO comedies arriving on Blu-ray this week, be sure to pay a visit to Silicon Valley: Season 3. Elsewhere, Universal says hello to The Bye Bye Man, Cohen Media Group releases a 25th anniversary edition of Daughters of the Dust, and Showtime opens up the big top for The Circus: Season 1.

    Oh and I almost forgot: later this week, a certain street racing franchise speeds into theatres with The Fate of the Furious, so be sure to check back for our review. Now it’s time for your weekly reminder before signing off: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…the latest entry in a massively beloved sci-fi franchise hit theaters and became the highest-grossing movie of 2016. Ok, so it was more like 3 ½ months ago, which isn’t all that long. And it was playing practically everywhere, so chances are you didn’t have to drive very far, far away to go watch it. Nevertheless, the commute will be nonexistent now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is out on Blu-ray! Disney was nice enough to send us a copy and we’ll have a review of this disc very soon. On top of that, Omnibus Entertainment introduces us to Heidi. Finally, we’ll be wrapping up the week with some panache thanks to the big-screen release of Going in Style.

    Even though it’s a brand new month, the same reminder still applies here: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!

    There’s more than a little magic in the air for this week’s Round Up. Warner Bros. casts an enchanting, ultra-HD spell with the blockbuster Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which we’ll be reviewing in 4K. And speaking of “fantastic beasts,” I hope you don’t mind if I spend a few words on Baby, the sweet and loyal German Shepherd/Chow mix who could usually be found welcoming guests to UpcomingDiscs HQ. Baby, who was also a part-time movie critic, passed yesterday and she’ll be greatly missed.

    In other Round Up news, Paramount holds a moment of Silence for Martin Scorsese’s latest religious epic, while Candy Factory tries to put the pieces of a murder together in Americana. Finally, we’ll also check in with The Zookeeper’s Wife later this week and offer our take on the World War II drama. One last reminder before signing off for the week (and for March): if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs.

    Help! UpcomingDiscs HQ has been overrun by a koala, a couple of pigs, a gorilla, an elephant, a porcupine, and other adorable animals! Fortunately for us, these crooning critters happen to be the stars of Universal’s Sing, which we’ll be reviewing in 4K pretty soon. Meanwhile, Candy Factory leaves us torn with Split, while Magnolia Home Entertainment examines A Kind of Murder. Shout! Factory answers When Calls the Heart: The Heart of Faith, and HBO navigates the (often awkward) lives of two contemporary black women with Insecure: The Complete First Season. Finally, we’ll bring you a pair of theatrical reviews this weekend, including Woody Harrelson’s star turn in Wilson. We’ll also try to determine if there is Life on Mars (and in this sci-fi horror flick starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds).

    Howdy, neighbors! I realize our readers come from all over the world, but I feel like I can be at least a little familiar with some of you after writing for this site a little more than five years. And since they say that “good fences make good neighbors”, it’s only fitting that this week we find out if the great, Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Fences” makes for a good movie. Paramount was generous enough to send along a copy of recent Best Picture nominee Fences, starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, so check back soon for our review. On the lighter side of the spectrum, Comedy Central serves up a drink (or 10) for Drunk History: Season 4. Finally, we revisit a tale as old as time later this week with the much-anticipated arrival of Beauty and the Beast.

    Resistance to our weekly Tuesday Round Up is futile. Resistance, courtesy of Omnibus Entertainment, is also one of the titles we’ll be reviewing in the next week or so. Be sure to check back soon for our take on the World War II drama. Meanwhile, Speakeasy Pictures serves up Bloodrunners, a Prohibition-era vampire thriller starring Ice-T. Film Detective introduces us to Joe Bullet, while Cinedigm logs onto Slasher.com. Finally, our week is set to end with a visit from a certain iconic movie monster when Kong: Skull Island swings into theaters.

    How well do you really know the person you’re married to? That’s the provocative question at the center of Allied, the stylish World War II drama from Robert Zemeckis. (Of course, the question becomes even trickier to answer when both people in the marriage are well-trained spies.) Thanks to Paramount, you can find out for yourself by grabbing a copy of Allied in 4K…and we’ll have a review of the spiffy new disc very soon. And be sure to come back later this week to see if our claws come out when we review Logan.

Larry comes across an Ivy League student, and the two form a bond that is complicated by Hurricane Katrina. So please join us in offering a royal welcome to The King of New Orleans, courtesy of Candy Factory. Later this week, we’ll take a trip to a mysterious, upscale family estate…hopefully, we can Get Out in one piece!

    Hello again movie lovers…and just lovers in general! It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m sure romance is in the air. It’s also Tuesday, which means it’s time for our weekly Round Up of reviews we’ve got coming your way. HBO rocks out with Quarry: Season 1, a drama about a Vietnam War veteran who gets a very unwelcome reception when he arrives back home. But wait, there’s more! (Heh-heh…I said “but.”) Paramount has made sure we’ll be planted on our couch watching Beavis and Butthead: The Complete Series. Finally, Paramount is also speaking our language with Arrival in 4K.

    They stole his car and killed his dog…what more motivation does an impossibly deadly ex-hitman need to come out of retirement?! And now, John Wick is coming for us! Fortunately, it’s a friendly visit as Lionsgate releases John Wick in 4K ahead of this Friday’s release of John Wick: Chapter 2, which we will also be reviewing. On top of that, Lionsgate goes back in time with American Pastoral, gives us nightmare fuel with The Crooked Man, and offers a monster double feature with Frankenstein: The Real Story/The Real Wolfman. HBO misbehaves with Vice Principals: Season 1, while Sony stays up From Dusk Till Dawn: Season 3, and RLJ Entertainment gallops to the Dead West. (Be sure to check out our chat with Dead West star Jeffrey Arrington.) CBS/Paramount boldly goes to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine — The Complete Series, Cohen Media Group returns to the dawn of World War II with Come What May, and Warner Bros. saves the day thanks to Justice League Dark.

    And speaking of “dark”, we have a pair of Reel World reviews coming this weekend to keep Mr. Wick company. Be sure to check back for our take on Fifty Shades Darker and to read whether everything in The Lego Batman Movie is awesome. Now it’s time for your weekly reminder before signing off: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs.

    Welcome to an extra special edition of our Tuesday Round Up! This week, you have a chance to win $1 million! (OK, that’s not exactly true.) Actually, we’re giving away a brand new car! (Still not totally accurate.) How about a set of shiny new steak knives?! (Nope!) OK, OK, I’ll come clean…especially since my nose has grown so much from all this fibbing that it is currently poking my laptop screen. What can I say? I was so inspired by Disney’s Pinocchio: The Signature Collection release that I couldn’t help but stretch the truth. (Check back soon for our review of the cartoon classic.) Disney is also several moves ahead of us with the release of family chess drama Queen of Katwe. Finally, HBO lives the high life with Ballers: Season 2.

    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.

    All aboard! We’re only a hair more than two weeks into 2017, but there’s already plenty of exciting stuff going on around these parts. (For example, check out our review of one of the top-of-the-line Ultra HD Blu-ray players on the market.) Fortunately, there’s still more than enough time for you get on this UpcomingDiscs train. Speaking of which, Universal hops aboard The Girl on the Train in 4K and plays a deadly game with Death Race 2050. Fox puts its faith in The Story of God: Season 1, while Magnolia Home Entertainment counts down to Zero Days. Candy Factory delivers The Babymooners, while Warner Bros. bids farewell to Rizzoli & Isles: The Final Season. Meanwhile, Paramount returns with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back in 4K and boldly goes to Star Trek: Enterprise — The Complete Series.

    But wait…there’s more! We’ve got a couple of theatrical releases we’ll be reviewing for the weekend. So be sure to check back and see if we’re lovin’ The Founder, and how we rate XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.

Fortunately for us, Warner Bros. was kind enough to send a copy of The Accountant, the action hit that stars Ben Affleck as a math savant/killing machine. Elsewhere, Comedy Central yuks it up (and lights up) with Broad City: Season 3.

    The first Tuesday Round Up of 2017 is getting the New Year off to a spooky start. Lionsgate ventures back into the woods to meet up with the Blair Witch, while Fox makes us lose our heads thanks to Sleepy Hollow: Season 3. Finally, Reel Gore Releasing has a bloody good time with The Orphan Killer. Meanwhile in non-horror news, Cinedigm leaves behind The Ultimate Legacy, while HBO takes us back to the Big Apple (with a detour to Japan) to hang out with Girls: Season 5.

    We are less than a week away from Santa making his annual jaunt around the globe. But as we inch closer to the magic of Christmas Eve, I want to talk about a different gray-haired pilot at the center of a wintry miracle. Thanks to Warner Bros., we’ll have a review of Sully in 4K, which examines the real-life “Miracle on the Hudson.” Speaking of taking flight, Warner was also kind enough to deliver Storks in 4K and 3D under our tree. Meanwhile, Lionsgate counts to 31, and Candy Factory hikes with the Children of the Mountain.
