Man with the Iron Fists, The (Blu-ray) (2012)
Another film from the archive during this period of isolation and social distancing; today a look at the Blu-ray of The Man with the Iron Fists, the kung-fu homage / vanity project from writer / director / star / composer RZA, also starring Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune and Dave Bautista, and presented by Quentin Tarantino.

Universal Soldier (4K Blu-ray) (1992)
Universal Soldier looks amazing in 4K Ultra HD. The remastered video presentation is immaculate across the board: sharp, richly detailed, clear, and with a beautiful HDR grade. The 5.1 audio, too, is fantastic, and I never found myself yearning for an object-based remix. The disc also contains a nice collection of special features. Highly recommended.

Universal Soldier (Classics Remastered) (Blu-ray) (1992)
One of the most quintessential manly movies from the 1990s, Universal Soldier is a primo action movie from top to bottom. It's silly, incredibly entertaining, violent and goofy, and I always enjoy watching it. This remastered edition of Universal Soldier is enormously satisfying, one of the best catalogue releases in recent memory. The disc offers a robust remastered 1080p presentation and a pristine 5.1 audio mix. It's a bit light in terms of extras, but what's included is better than nothing. I love this film, and I love that it has been remastered so thoroughly. Highly recommended.
