New on DVD and Blu-Ray

There’s a bounty of fine 4K selections this week, including Paramount’s release of The Untouchables (part of the too-slow of getting all of Brian De Palma’s best/most popular work over to 4K), 1776 timed to the wrong patriotic holiday, Shout Factory bizarrely having to be the ones to release the Happy Death Day movies on the format and not Universal (Universal also passed the buck on a Double Indemnity 4K to Criterion, but most other studios seem similarly happy to throw their most high-profile vault contents at Criterion), and Kino continuing the milk the Sergio Leone-Clint Eastwood movies for all they’re worth. There’s also Introduction, which is now only the third most recent Hong Sang-soo movie despite being released just over a year ago, and Shout Factory’s bizarrely-handled release of William Peter Blatty’s famously unhinged The Ninth Configuration, which has been newly restored and yet is only selling as a 1500-copy Blu-Ray directly from SF’s website. They also did this with Cockfighter, I wish they would stop.
