Hello Gentle Towelites, it is I, Co-Editor in Chief Casey here to take you through a cinematic adventure on this 3rd week of May. What blu-ray and digital releases shall we partake in? Find out below!


How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (4K)

What a way to cap off one of the best fantasy trilogies of all-time. I mean, second to Lord of the Rings of course. Love the score, love the themes, love the visuals. Had a blast with this film and glad to own it in 4K.

The Upside (Blu-ray, DVD)

I like Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston. This movie looks like it’ll hit me right in the feels. 

Isn’t it Romantic (Blu-ray, DVD)

Sometimes Rebel Wilson can be hilarious. Sometimes she can be just plain horrid. I’m hoping this is the former. 

Shaft Triple Feature (Blu-ray)

He’s one bad mutha…shut yo mouth! Yeah there’s a triple-feature of Shaft films on Blu-ray for the first time. Must be to coincide with the new film coming out this Summer. Check yo self before you wreck yo self and pick these up.

Crank (4K)

These movies are just plain bonkers. I love how they are shot even though they are quite literally an epileptic seizure for 90 minutes of pure insanity. I can’t even imagine what a 4K transfer is gonna do to make this film. Guess I’ll find out.


That’s it for the releases this week. Next week, we’ve got some wild stuff coming up, including the digital release of Captain Marvel! Yes, it’s still in the theaters! 

Til next time!
