The greatest zombie movie of all-time (yeah, we went there); a DC Superhero showdown; a 4K version of Watchmen; a couple of TV Shows; and an underrated gangster flick... this week is loaded with Must Own titles, but none more compelling than the first one on our list.
*Be sure to click the pics below to buy the movies, or even rent them. Or both. Or neither. It really depends on your mood, now doesn't it?
On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy (Thom Mathews) unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates an army of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger... for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!"
Being that Return of the Living Dead is one of our favorite Horror flicks of all time, we already own it on Blu-ray. Of course the version we own is pretty plain and bare-bones, so the idea of upgrading to a Collector's Edition of the movie that boasts a new 2K scan and a ton of awesome bonus features is absolutely fine with us.
A new scan of the movie is reason enough for us to buy this one, but the fact that this 2-Disc set is going to include the EXCELLENT Horror Doc, More Brains: A Return To The Living Dead, makes it an absolute Must Own. Plus those other bonus features...
This is a DAY ONE purchase for us, and it should be for you too. Order that bad boy below.
We thought that BvS was a decent enough movie, but it felt like it was trying to do way too much at one time, and there wasn't enough Batman for our tastes. From what we hear, this Ultimate Edition fleshes the story out and makes it all better. We'll definitely be checking it out to see if that's the case.
- Batman v Superman is also available in 3D and 4K versions, if that's your kick. Man of Steel is being released in 4K as well, because it ties in.
- Speaking of 4K Superhero flicks, the much maligned Watchemen (I personally love this flick) is being released in 4K today, because why not release all of Zack Snyder's Superhero flicks on 4K at once?
- Arrow Video's release of Crimes of Passion is an odd one, but hey, there's definitely a market for 80's Erotic Thrillers out there, so good on them.
- Hoodlum is a cool gangster flick that has never been on Blu-ray until now, and it's one that will immediately go into our collection.
- And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
