Greetings,

Yes, 13 Hours as a film wasn't released in 2019 but, this list is comprised of titles that were released on Blu-ray/UHD Blu-ray in 2019 (Alien is another example). I would agree about Alita. One of my favorites from last year's home video releases.

Nice list, Ralph. I was surprised I actually own a good portion of these. Although I still need to open my copy of Alita. I know, I know. Still need to see 13 Hours too.

Sounds like he needs to switch to decaf.

Watched 13 Hours last night. Great movie. Holy cow, it was intense. Only watched the 1080p BD, but it both looked and sounded fantastic. A lot of recognizable faces. Took me a bit to place the Grimm and Mad Sweeney. And interestingly enough, Krasinski's name in this is Jack. Thanks for the heads up.

Glad you liked it. It's one of my favorite bass demos too.

@Ralph ,

You are always on the money my friend!! Unfortunately the "Ad Astra" had no place on that list. Horrible in all aspects Horrible story line, horrible acting, horrible execution. Waste of two hours.

Another vote for 13 Hours, great movie. When can we expect Top Gun to come out in Dolby Atmos? If there ever was a movie that demanded Dolby Atmos, its Top Gun.. The flying scenes alone will be worth the price..

Just ordered 13 Hours in Blu-Ray. Hoping the non-4k version is still impressive.

But as crafter of films, Bay is at the pinnacle. Something I choose to believe is reflected by his box office proceeds.

I was laughing until I realized that you were being serious...
To each his own, although I will admit that I enjoyed the first Transformers, 13 Hours, Armageddon and The Rock
