New to Blu: December 14 – 20

The Secret Life Of Pets bounds on to Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and UHD Blu-ray this week, Sully lands here a week ahead of the US, early movies by Oliver Stone and Michael Mann are re-issued as special editions, and the latest NZ movie to earn a Blu-ray debut is Three Wise Cousins.

You can also buy UHD editions of the Jason Bourne franchise that previously were released in a box set.

The full slate, with selected critics’ thoughts on PQ:

The Secret Life of Pets (“reference video and audio, and a strong selection of extras leave this disc an undoubted must-have for fans”)

Ben Hur (“delivers all the dazzle one would expect of a big budget modern studio film”)


David Brent: Life On The Road

Three Wise Cousins

Mechanic: Resurrection (“the technical merits for the disc are a stunner, though the extras are underwhelming”)

The Duel (“displays its naturalistic colour tone perfectly“)

Mr Right

The Man Who Knew Infinity (“looks good, but doesn’t drop your jaw or raise your skirt”)

Mr Fuzzypants (“a first-rate transfer throughout as sharpness is excellent”)

31 (“a nice, highly-detailed picture … fans will appreciate the production value”)

I’m Not a Serial Killer

Yoga Hosers

The Bourne Supremacy

The Bourne Identity

The Bourne Ultimatum

Salvador – Special Edition

Thief – Special Edition

Rollerball – Special Edition

The Party – Special Edition

Wild Orchid – Special Edition

The Man From Hong Kong (“looks as good as it can in high-definition”)

REM Out of Time 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.

  1. I got from Amazon UK today The Roddenberry Vault, which includes episodes from the original Star Trek series and also with heaps of brand new extras but yet again there doesn’t seem to be release date for New Zealand, what is going on here? :(

  2. Yes, Trevor, it sounds amazing. But so far no sign of it on Paramount’s NZ schedule, even though it’s already for sale in Oz. There was a peculiar snag with The Original Series’ BD release, too, which took years longer than the rest of the world to go on sale here.
