Reginald Hudlin’s Boomerang, featuring a star-studded cast, celebrates its 30th anniversary by arriving on Blu-ray for the first time. Paramount has been releasing a number of Eddie Murphy films over the past few years onto Blu-ray or 4K UHD. A few came by way through Paramount Presents line but this isn’t one of them. Some of the more popular films ended up getting 4K releases after the recent Blu-rays so we’ll just have to see…"Boomerang Gets 30th Anniversary Blu-ray"
Beverly Hills Cop II makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD in celebration of the Eddie Murphy comedy marking its 35th anniversary. The film was previously remastered on Digital in 4K UHD back in December 2019. All three films were subsequently released on Blu-ray in January 2020 but not in 4K. I’m expecting a similar physical release in 4K for when Beverly Hills Cop III marks its 30th anniversary in 2024. The 35th anniversary marks…"Beverly Hills Cop II Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"
Another 48 Hrs. has been newly remastered and arrives on Blu-ray for the first time as the 20th title in the Paramount Presents Blu-ray line. Like the other Paramount Presents titles, the film includes a limited edition collectible package, interior spread, and Digital Copy. Like its predecessor, this film has also been remastered from a new 4K film transfer. The sequel is not quite the classic that the first film became. It didn’t hit with…"Another 48 Hrs. Arrives On Blu-Ray For First Time"
48 Hrs., the Walter Hill film starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy, became the 19th title to join the Paramount Presents line on Blu-ray. This film kickstarted the buddy cop genre and cinema would never be the same. Even though a 1974 film predates it, history looks to the 1982 comedy as the first. But it’s fair to say that without 48 Hrs., there is no Beverly Hills Cop, Bad Boys, Rush Hour, and even…"48 Hrs. Joins Paramount Presents Blu-ray Line"
The Oscar-winning Shrek celebrates its 20th anniversary with a special anniversary addition arriving on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Hard to believe as it might be but at one time, Steven Spielberg wanted to produce the film in a traditionally animated style. I’m sorry to say that it’s certainly impossible to see this film in any style other than CGI. Anyway, the film also made its way over to DreamWorks and the rest is…"Shrek: 20th Anniversary Edition Arrives On 4K UHD"
The highly anticipated Coming 2 America arrives on Amazon Prime Video with a number of not-funny jokes and date rape as a plot device. Maybe it was for the best that this sequel bypassed theaters for Amazon Prime Video. Or maybe it was for the best that the press screener also had video lag. It means thankfully not having to spend all afternoon and evening being angry. I’m just going to cut straight to the…"Coming 2 America: A Non-Review Review"
The Golden Child, staring Eddie Murphy, makes its arrival for the first time ever in Blu-ray under the Paramount Presents line. Director Michael Ritchie supervised the 4K film transfer prior to the film’s remastered release on Blu-ray. As is the case with every Paramount Presents editions, The Golden Child also comes with collectible packaging with a foldout image of the theatrical poster and interior photo spread featuring key scenes. The film also includes a digital…"The Golden Child Arrives On Blu-ray"
Trading Places, the outrageous comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy, is the latest title to join the Paramount Presents line. While this film is just shy of its 40th anniversary, it could have been made in any year and still be relevant. Randolph Ralph Bellamy) and Mortimer Duke (Don Ameche) are a pair of very rich and greedy brothers. They stoop so low as to make a wager that street hustler Billy Ray Valentine…"Trading Places Added To Paramount Presents"
The newly remastered Coming to America makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD just in time for the release of the sequel in March 2021. One could say that Eddie Murphy did a favor in bringing John Landis on board to direct the film. If you recall, John Landis was a director of a scene in The Twilight Zone: The Movie when a helicopter crashed on set. In any event, Landis supervises the restoration of…"Coming to America Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"
Beverly Hills Cop, the hit 1984 blockbuster comedy starring Eddie Murphy, makes its newly remastered arrival on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The physical release comes after the trilogy was released together on Blu-ray in January 2020. It feels like another year, right? In any event, this release also features the same bonus content. However, a few features are also on both discs. Everything is also on the Blu-ray for what it’s worth. If you prefer,…"Beverly Hills Cop Arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray"
