New to Blu: July 7 – 13


If you thought the Blu-ray transfer of Parasite was phenomenal, wait until you see the Oscar-Winner on 4K-UHD.

“The dark comedy thriller wiggles and twists its way into the dark recesses of Ultra HD with a stunningly beautiful, reference-quality HEVC H.265 encode, boasting a dramatic improvement in overall contrast and brightness balance,” High-Def Digest said.

Not only are the whites significantly brighter and more intense, which can be seen in the daylight exteriors, but specular highlights are also radiant and beaming with a tight, narrow glow from the sparkling glare off metallic surfaces to the various light fixtures, allowing for superb clarity throughout.

“This native 4K image is spectacular, everywhere you look there is something wondrous,” AVForums said.

“The Dolby Atmos track really opens up the surround field, making good use of 3D space to give a very natural sounding track.”

To mark Parasite’s belated 4K-UHD debut, Madman Entertainment’s releasing three of director Bong Joon Ho’s earlier movies on Blu-ray: MotherMemories of Murder and Barking Dogs Never Bite.

The Korean filmmaker’s latest project is adapting Parasite for HBO, he revealed at the Cannes Film Festival, where he also confessed: “I had no idea that Parasite would be a such a global hit. Its success was far beyond my expectations.”

Also on Buy-ray here for the first time are season two of Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, The Adventures of Merlin: The Complete Series and The Rolling Stones: A Bigger Bang – Live on Copacabana Beach.

New on the anime front are:

  • Earwig and the Witch
  • Asteroid in Love: The Complete Series
  • Fruits Basket – Season 2: Part 2
  • Black Clover: Season 3 – Part 3
