Blu-ray Releases Round-up July/August

I haven’t done a pick of the blu-ray releases for quite some time due to lots of other site improvements being implemented recently. So to right that wrong I have decided to do a Blu-ray releases round-up. However you can now keep up with all the upcoming new releases via our new ‘Release Dates’ page. It now sports all the upcoming blu-ray and cinema releases in both the UK and US. Plus we also keep an eye out for certain DVD only titles such as the recently released ‘Here’s Harry – The Complete Surviving Episodes’

So with all that said its time to look at my top picks of the Blu-ray releases in my July/August round-up.

UK Blu-ray Releases Round-up July/August

Starting off with the UK and July’s releases included the much underrated Psycho II (1983) from Arrow Video.    If you didn’t fancy buying the Hellraiser boxset the first film came out on its own. Meanwhile Powerhouse Film’s Indicator label released the Burt Lancaster film Castle Keep (1969).

Moving on to August and the highlight for me had to be the release of Ronin (1998) starring Robert De Niro and Jean Reno. Released by Arrow Video it sported a rather nice brand new 4K restoration, check out my review below.
