‘A Fistful of Dollars’ and More Hit the Shelves In This Week’s New to Blu (Week of 5/22/2018)

Each week here at Bloody Disgusting we like to highlight some of the new Blu-ray releases hitting shelves across the world. Please note that this isn’t every release for the week, just a few of the ones that jumped out at us.

It’s Tuesday again! And as we all know that means we’ve got new Blu-ray releases! It’s another most light week in terms of quantity, but the quality is really high. And really, when it boils down to it, isn’t quality the only thing that matters? Yes.


Chris’ 5-Start, Sure to Entertain, Pick of the Week!

A Fistful of Dollars (Kino Lorber, Region A)

About eight months ago Kino Lorber released a new Blu-ray version of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It’s a gorgeous release with a wonderful picture that looks different than any past releases and it’s loaded with special features. With A Fistful of Dollars they haven’t presented an entirely new presentation, but they’ve delivered on a release that still looks gorgeous and comes overflowing with bonus content. This is one of the greatest westerns ever made. Any time it gets a new release it’s worth checking out.


I Haven’t Seen It Yet, But It Sounds Cool!

The Vampire and the Ballerina (Scream Factory, Region A)

The Vampire and the Ballerina is a 1960 movie directed by Italian filmmaker Renato Polselli. I don’t know much about Polselli, though I know he wrote the screenplay to Django Kills Softly, and I’ve never heard of this film, but I love vampires and the ballet, so this has to be good, right? An Italian vampire movie from the 60’s? No way this one doesn’t at least leave some sort of an impression.
