August 7th 2018
The first Bluray Tuesday of a new month is here and August is starting off with a bang! Today brings us a huge list of new films and re releases. Scream Factory starts it off with Pyewacket, Wildling and a collector's edition of Someone's Watching Me. All three of these releases are definite pickups for me. Wildling and Pyewacket are some recent films that I thoroughly enjoyed and am looking forward to the bonus features. Universal Pictures releases Revenge today. This film had me on the edge of my seat! It's another highlight of 2018, I'd recommend it. Severin releases The Changeling today for the first time on Bluray with new scan and bonus features. DC releases their next animated feature, The Death of Superman, and Target will carry an exclusive Steelbook for it's release. For the first time on 4K just in time for the new film is the Predator series. The original Predator will also have a standalone 4K release and an exclusive steelbook. Rounding out the week is thriller Breaking In, comedy Life of the Party, and the second season of mystery series Riverdale. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
