Yes, Disney Movie Club does offer the 4K sets for their movies (my 4k THOR RAGNAROK came from them) but I don't immediately recall if the 4K sets are an option for the monthly commitment titles.

Does that Disney movie club do the 4K stuff or not yet?


They've got a few. Thor 3, TLJ, PotC5, GothGv2, Coco, Cars 3, Black Panther, and pre-orders for Wrinkle in Time and Infinity War.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried to join the Disney Movie Club. Apparently new movies like The Last Jedi and Black Panther are only available for those who are already members (in other words, they cannot be part of the 4 for $1 initial purchase)...so yeah, that doesn't help me.

Before you jump into the Disney Movie Club, you will probably want to stop by http://www.blu-ray.com/ forums and the Disney Movie Club thread to find out the best deal to start with. Here's a direct link to the thread: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=221740

The slipcover is printed with a a cool, kinda reflective material that makes it look cooler than it does from a simple picture.

Yup, just got my copy yesterday as well and watched the first movie. I am very pleased so far.

Though I had my issues with Twilight Time, they did have a bargain basement sale on some of their titles, and I just could not resist.

My favorite version of this story (and rare moment in a Hammer film that Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are both on the good side). Pity that Cushing only got to play Sherlock Holmes once (I think).

Image

Sort of a pre-cursor to "The Revenent", but instead of DiCapro, it is Robert Ryan that is left behind to die in the wilderness (desert wilderness), by his wife and tracking guide (so that they could inherit his vast fortune). One of Ryan's better performances, I thought.

Which release of The Third Man? There's a few. The movie is phenomenal.

I own the BD released a few years ago, but I'm really hoping Criterion brings out that brand new 4K print I saw in theaters two years ago.

Sorry I didn't see this but I picked up the Studio Canal version. I did really enjoy it.

It looked sharp! Quite happy with the results. And I finally had a chance to watch the musical version and wanted to see if it was a notorious as its reputation has made it out to be.

OMG! If one is truly curious about it, I recommend just seeing it only once! (or better, never!). I just wondered who's bright idea was it to convert a non-musical, into a musical? Edward Small? Musical cues come in at the most inopportune times, such as Jack fighting those armored creatures with his whip and worst of all, at the end, when Jack is in battle with Pendragon's monstrous incarnation. The Imp of the Bottle's dialog was completely re-dubbed into musical rhymes. And they even played around with some of the actors dialog making it sound as they were in song! This was the first and last time I will be seeing that version!
