Let's take this week to recharge our wallets a little bit. With just one Domestic 4K title and a handful of blu-rays, it's a momentary lapse of releases! Twenty points for the first one that gets the reference.
Welcome to Volume 4 Episode 36 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of February 4th - February 10th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.
For Domestic Tuesday this week, we get the 1971 Western McCabe & Mrs. Miller starring Warren Beatty and directed by Robert Altman, brought to us by Criterion.
Thursday releases, a pair of standard editions from Turbine Medien Group out of Germany, The Deep House and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. They previously did media books for both titles, and neither title has gotten a 4K release in the US, see where this is going?
Next week, watch out as we see a higher than average schedule. It's feast or famine I tell ya! The Marvels, Hunger Games, Footloose and a ton more!
If you were a boutique label, this week would be a great week to sell sell sell! How about a horror that could easily be confused with a board game? Yeah, Candy Land would be that title.
A relatively new label to the US, Radiance Films this week has the Japanese language drama The Sting of Death available to purchase.
Weekly Anime highlights include Handyman Saitou in Another World - The Complete Season, Revenger - The Complete Season and Tears to Tiara - Complete Collection.
Shout! Factory this week offers up the horror/thriller Funeral Home, as well as the sci-fi/thriller The Terminal Man: 50th Anniversary Edition. With Elon Musk in recent news behind a company offering neural implants, this one could become very real!
If you have been following Jess (Jesús) Franco's career, you can check off another release with Voodoo Passion from Full Moon Features.
In the blu-ray category next week, we see a slight uptick in titles available.
The last couple of slow weeks I have shared a YouTube link or two. Have fun with this one.. if you like ABBA: Dancing Queen, it was remastered to 4K. So 70's! Mamma Mia anyone?
A decade forward and it's all about the hair, and the spandex. This one looks fantastic in 4K. Rick Astley!
Shout! Factory's various labels have announced their April slate of titles. So far we are looking at Rolling Thunder on 4K, and for blu-rays, Affliction, Blue Giant, Lost in Space (movie) and Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey. Winnie The Pooh was already released to a Walmart Exclusive SteelBook last October, so this is a general release. There are 4K options for Pooh overseas, Italy, France and Germany.
Which titles are you buying this week? Which ones are on your wishlist, be it to buy as an impulse buy or to wait for the right price?
