LG UBK80 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player Review

Image

Even though I have not had a good history with LG Electronics products, I bought the LG UBK80 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc player for $99.99 (normal price is $199.99) from Best Buy on Black Friday 2019. I was upgrading from the LG BP125 Blu-ray Disc player (purchased on December 10, 2012 from Walmart for $48.00), which was the only LG product that I never had an issue with.

On Saturday June 20, 2020, I bought an open-box unused Clickfree Plus C2 2-Terabyte USB 3.0 external portable hard drive at a yard sale for the whopping sum of $2.00.

I had never heard of the Clickfree brand before, but I could not pass up buying a 2TB hard drive for two bucks. The box heavily promoted the product's easy automatic backup feature, but I figured that was just some software on the drive that I could easily delete. How wrong I was...

The Hunt Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack Review

Image

The Hunt (2020) is a film that just can't catch a break. Originally slated for a September 27, 2019 release, the film was pushed back to March 13, 2020 in the wake of a spate of mass shootings that shook the nation. Then the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March, severely limiting its theatrical run. The film finally got its proper physical disc home video release on June 9th, but that was in the shadow of police brutality that occurred just three weeks earlier. Well, after all of the controversy and bad luck surrounding this film, is it any good? Read on to find out...

The Invisible Man (2020) 4K UHD + Blu-ray Combo Pack Review

Image

If there's an invisible man sleeping in your bed, who are you going to call? Not the Ghostbusters, this time.

The Invisible Man (2020) is a re-imagining of the 1933 Universal classic monster movie, based on the 1897 novel by H.G. Wells (read online), though no mention is ever made of Wells in the film's credits or bonus features. Does it fare better than most remakes and re-imaginings? Read on to find out...
