That’s right I managed to get myself the 4K Steelbook limited edition for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This was a little bit of a nightmare when Zavvi put them on sale at midnight of all times so by the time I actually saw the pre-sale email they had sold out. But then over to HMV who still had some available. The release date being Monday 30th November 2020. They arrived (eventually) yesterday after Royal Mail kept teasing me as I originally had an email saying they would be with me on Monday by 3pm!
Anyway they are quite frankly the most beautiful steelbooks or even any DVD/Blu-Ray covers that I have ever seen! You get both the extended editions and theatrical cuts for each film, although the extended editions are still over two discs (only downside). I was lucky enough to see these films at the cinema (twice) in the summer in the 4K and extended on the big screen. Cannot wait to watch them all again and again in 4K format, simply stunning!
On a totally unrelated search I stumbled across this complete collection of the Marvel Cinematic Universe set which is quite frankly stunning if you have £399.99 to spend on it all! I mean you get the 4K Ultra HD disc along with the Blu-Ray disc as well, but that price is very high isn’t it!
Ron Stallworth is an African-American police officer in Colorado Springs and he managed to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan branch with the help of Flip Zimmerman a fellow police officer who just happens to be Jewish. The pair being posing as the same man Ron, manage to become the leader of the branch. This film is based on actual events.
Throughout 2018 I managed to catch up with 48 older films and have decided to put together a top 10 list out of those films. You will be probably be quite surprised that some of these films I did not see until recently as some quality films. Always good to set yourself a challenge to catch up. I am happy that I managed to get 48 first time watches of films that does not include new cinema releases. With the films I have chosen for my top 10 list I pretty much was left wondering why I had never seen the film before!

An incredible present for my birthday today is an upgrade for my home film watching, an Ultra HD Blu-ray player! Now to purchase some 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray films! It comes with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I already have the incredible new version of Die Hard that I can watch.
Not forgetting the cool Friends duvet cover I also got!
