Elemental – Best Buy Steelbook Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Pixar has been on a bit of a rocky road for Disney. Relegating many of their A-tier releases to Disney+ exclusives and taking away a bit of the importance from the brand, the release of Lightyear last summer had many questioning if they could bounce back. And at first, Elemental looked doomed, but slowly and surely it legged out into one of the best holds of the summer. Now, you can own the film on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray with Atmos sound and extras to “hold” in your own hands. There are some different variants of this release, but this review takes a look at the Best Buy limited edition steelbook.

Loki: The Complete First Season (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Loki: The Complete First Season coming to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray isn’t just cool because I’d like to own this show I like on the best format available, its more than that.

It will be followed next month by WandaVision and then the first two Mandalorian seasons in December. For a while it was uncertain what was going on and if these were always going to be beholden to the streamer as an exclusive. Loki: The Complete First Season became available for purchase on September 26th. You can order yourself a copy by using the paid Amazon Associates link following the review.

Gran Turismo Revs A Solid Underdog Story (Movie Review)
