Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Collection
ROAR! Life always finds a way, and this time it has found a way to bring one of film’s best adventures to 4K. Welcome to Jurassic Park, again.
The 25th Anniversary Collection comes with “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “Jurassic Park III,” and the recent “Jurassic World.” Get your fill of dinosaurs, and make sure you have a quality sound system as well to really take in the film’s score and, well, louder moments.
Just because it is set in the 80s, doesn’t mean you should stick to watching “Stranger Things” on VHS, Betamax, or LaserDisc. Nope, instead you can check out the hit sci-fi show in 4K right now on Netflix, or also on the 4K season 1 collector’s edition.
So, grab those baseball bats – and some D&D dice -- and get ready to take a stroll through Hawkins, Indiana like you’ve never seen it before. Just don’t put the disc in upside down.
Often referred to as one of the best television shows of all time, “Breaking Bad” introduced fans around the world to the criminal double life of Walter White. It’s been some time since the show wrapped up though, which means it’s the perfect time to go back and revisit it. Of course, this time you’ll be able to watch it in 4K. New Mexico never looked so good.
You have options as to where you check it out, as well: “Breaking Bad” is available on both Netflix and Amazon in 4K. You’re welcome.
