Just got the box set of “Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em”. Funny stuff from the seventies but still good.

It's one of the comedies which still holds up really well today. Michael Crawford is hilarious in it, he did his own stunts and co-wrote the show too.

He also made a Sport Relief special in 2016 where at the age of 74 he did all his own stunts again.

JB had a buy one get one free bluray sale recently (During the BG outage) The sale included box sets and UHD's so I couldn't resist:
Back to the Future Trilogy 4K UHD Box set.
Ghostbusters 1,2, Afterlife Trilogy 4K UHD box set.
I so nearly got the Matrix box set on 4K instead of Ghostbusters, but it was missing the Animatrix so I deemed the whole set completely worthless (still haven't seen the new one either).

Quite disappointing transfers of Ghostbusters 1 and 2 to 4K. There's so much grain it's not even too much better than the DVD's let alone the standard blu rays on a 43" TV. Afterlife looks phenomenal though, and that's the main thing... Support the movie so they know to make more.

Back to the Future on the other hand. Whoa! They really cleaned this place up, looks brand new.
I was quite happy with my normal crappy Full HD blurays of the trilogy from 2010, even when the interior scenes still looked a little rough. And I remained quite happy with the normal blurays Till I saw BTTF1 on this 4K disc. They've once again done great work cleaning up the picture, and removing even more grain and jagged edges. Aside from releasing 8K remasters in another 12 years, I really don't see how they're going to improve home releases much more... They've just put so much effort into making BTTF look great since the 25th anniversary.

Even on my small 43" 4K TV (budget model with no HDR and not properly calibrated) the movie looked so much better than the old discs.
Packaging on the new set is a bit crap, just a flimsy cardboard sleeve over 3 standard plastic cases, but since I have the beautiful old 2010 set with it's beautiful thick cardboard, beautiful artwork and booklet, beautiful lenticular cover and beautiful autographs from Jennifer and Doc, I'll be keeping that box and plomping the new 4K discs in there instead assuming they've 2 and 3 look equally as good. I might even run some tests to see if the new normal blurays, are better than the old normal blu rays, because if so, that's a huge win!

For anyone who doesn't buy discs anymore, most 4K sets come with bog standard blurays as well.

And yes, I know using discs is old school and expensive, but optical discs can provide bitrates that even the best 4K streams can only dream about.

few recent pickups that I can remember:
House - The Complete Collection [Blu-ray], was restocking the DVD/BD shelves & what I thought at first was the DVD turned out to be the Blu-Ray so I snagged it, nice perk of working in the charity shop is I can get at thinks first a lot of the time.
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) [Blu-ray]
Pokémon Detective Pikachu [Blu-ray] (amazingly with the Pikachu card still in it)
The Complete Bagpus [DVD] right in the nostalgias
The Day the Earth Stood Still [DVD]
Sapphire and Steel: The Complete Series [DVD]
