Welcome to Home Again, where each and every Tuesday I’ll be running down some of the best genre releases coming to home media.
All info is from the excellent Blu-ray.com. This isn’t every genre release, just the ones I find interesting. For the full list, follow that link.
Us (2019) – Universal Studios – I love this movie. I saw it twice in the theater and I am looking forward to watching it again, which has probably already happened thanks to preordering the Steelbook from Best Buy (as of this writing it has already shipped and should be here by Monday – yesterday to you future people).
Joran Peele’s remarkable film is available as a Blu-ray/DVD, 4K/Blu-ray, and a Best Buy exclusive Steelbook.
Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 2 (1942-1957) – Warner Bros. – One of the all-time cartoon greats, Popeye set the standard for action/comedy characters and would be copied for decades to come.
I haven’t picked up Volume 1 yet, but the reviews have been solid. I haven’t been given a reason to distrust Warner’s Archive releases.
Thirst (2009) – Kino Lorber – I know a lot of people thought this movie was great, so I figured I had better mention Kino’s release.
You can check out my review here.
Universal Horror Collection: Volume 1 (1934-1940) – Shout Factory – This Shout Factory release includes The Black Cat, The Raven, The Invisible Ray, and Black Friday. I hate to say it, but I haven’t seen any of these. It’s not due to avoidance, just that none of them have ever really jumped out at me or been casually available.
Other Titles Worth Noting
Corvette Summer, Under the Silver Lake, The Beach Bum, Slayground
There were quite a few titles this week, but not much I particularly cared about. Hopefully next week is better!
