Blu-Ray and Digital HD Releases

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story lands on shelves in 4K Blu-ray and 1080p Blu-ray today.

The film serves as a prequel to the original 1977 Star Wars film as it follows the origin story of Han Solo, the famous space smuggler as he embarks on daring escapades in the criminal underworld. Along the way, we see how Han picks up his famed co-pilot Chewbacca, befriends the smooth and suave Lando Calrissian, and how he pulled off that Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.

In the aftermath of The Last Jedi backlash, Solo arrived in theaters with tempered interest. This was complicated with the changing of directors mid-way with several reshoots to finish the film. In the end, despite all of this, the film is actually good and one can not help for some to believe that if it were only released at a different time, it probably would have done better.

In that, it’s a perfect time to give the film a try, especially with the various featurettes and extras with this release. The film is presented in DTS-HD Master Audio, or Dolby Atmos in the UHD offering, while the video is presented in crisp HD.

Special features include a cast and director roundtable (with Ron Howard), various features on making the Millenium Falcon, the droids, and the Scoundrels in the film. Notably there are some interesting deleted scenes as well, including an endearing snowball fight between Han and Chewie that we wished made it into the film!

Overall, the film is a great pick up – not only for the twists in the story, but the fact that there has to be a sequel and we have to know what happens next and how Han becomes, well, Han.

Uncle Drew

What started out as a clever promotional video of basketball all-star Kyrie Irving dressing up as an old man and schooling a bunch of people in street ball, is now a full on featured film.

Uncle Drew arrives on Blu-Ray today and follows a basketball coach who is looking to build a team for the Rucker Classic streetball tournament in Harlem. Along the way he runs into the famed myth and legend, Uncle Drew, as he convinces him to take to the basketball courts one more time. Filling out the rest of the team, the two set out and find Drew’s old basketball squad made up of other geriatrics, all played by NBA and WNBA all-stars like Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, and Lisa Leslie.

Special features includes an animated short, deleted scenes, and a few making of featurettes.

For a sports movie and those familiar with the viral character, the film is just fun to watch and amusing to see these all-star players all dressed up and dominating the courts. Definitely look out for this on shelves starting today.
