Want Escape from NY/LA movies in 4K.

Escape from New York seems likely within the year since Studio Canal released a 4KUHD in Europe for it, Shout Factory will likely release their version this year. I'm doubting we'll get one for LA, but it's possible since Shout Factory's recent Collector's Edition blu was from a 4K transfer.

The Fog is the other most likely Carpenter title to get a release soon. Hopefully it gets a different 4KUHD scan though, as everyone complains about Studio Canal's.

Got round to watching Godzilla. Great job converting it to 4K but such a waste of Cranston. Always bugged me that even more than them cutting just as the monster fights started.

We'll be getting a bounty of John Carpenter 4K's in time for Halloween, it's unfortunate that Shout Factory didn't have the rights to release this one themselves though. Apparently no Dolby Vision or Atmos, and pretty limited on the special features. Hopefully it still looks great!

Preordered the Halloween 1-5 bundle with the vinyl records from Scream Factory. Going to watch my Scott Pilgrim today. So many great 4K releases this year.

Nice! I was extremely tempted by that set, but went with the individual releases since I don't have a turntable. I'll probably regret it later, would love to hear the new versions of Chariots of Pumpkins and Season of the Witch.

I've been watching through some of my backlog of 4KUHD classics lately. Gotta say, all 3 of the below are gorgeous and well worth the money if you like the films. Apocalypse Now in particular is a standout with its great Dolby Vision, Atmos, and huge amount of content (3 versions of the film in 4KUHD, 2 Blurays of bonus material / features, etc). Older movies that were shot on film are pretty incredible in this format. I'm planning on finally watching 2001: A Space Odyssey's disc soon as well, which is often rated as the best in the 4KUHD format.

My Amazon preorder of The Thing finally showed up today. I'm really happy with the PQ. Between the color, lighting, darkness, and explosions, the HDR was absolutely gorgeous on my setup. Easily the best this has ever looked on home media, definitely worth picking up if you're a fan.

Preordered Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Never even thought for one second this would get a 4K release.
