Star Wars: The Last Jedi on 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-Ray today! Pick up your copy and enjoy this great film with the family!

The 8th part of the Star Wars saga is hitting shelves today, and is a must watch for anyone who considers themselves a movie fan. The Last Jedi picks up where the Force Awakens left off. Supreme Leader Snoak, Kylo Ren, and General Hux are still trying to establish the Empire's dominance over the galaxy. It's up to the Rebels led by Princess Leia, to try and put an end to the First Order's tyranny. 

Do we finally find out if Rey will be trained by the last Jedi Master in the Galaxy (?) Luke Skywalker? Or is Rey too much of a liability for Luke to train? Where do her emotions lie? Is she an ally to the Rebel forces or is she going to be swayed over to the dark side? Was Han correct? Is there still good left in Ben Solo? Or has Kylo Ren fully consumed Ben Solo?  Before we start with our take, I have to share a favorite photo, with a familiar character....Love this!
Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi—the next action-packed chapter of the Star Wars saga— Earned critical acclaim and the No. 1 spot atop 2017’s list of highest-grossing films.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is packaged several ways to ensure fans get the most out of their in-home viewing experience. The Multiscreen Edition (formerly the Blu-ray Combo Pack) includes Blu-ray, and a Digital copy, giving viewers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices. Those with 4K Ultra HD capability may opt for a 4K UHD Collector’s Edition, including 4K Ultra HD disc with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Blu-ray disc, and a digital copy (where available). Dolby Vision delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. Dolby Atmos places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. Together on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc, viewers will practically feel the Force in their own home.

Questions aside, this really was a good movie. We saw it opening weekend and we're looking forward to watching it again. Except now we have 2 hours of bonuses! Deleted scenes, full-length documentary, scene breakdowns, and audio commentary with writer/director Rian Johnson. This movie is like an onion, there are many layers you have to peel away, and while some questions are answered, a lot of new questions are asked. Such as, is a Porg tasty when roasted over an open flame? Only Chewy knows that answer for sure... 
If you're a Star Wars fan you'll enjoy this movie, it still has the connection to the original trilogy thanks in large part to Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher,  and Anthony Daniels. We also have an appearance from a little green Jedi Master (who, and I mean no offense to Tom Kane, is voiced by the man who originally brought him to life 38 years ago and just does it like no one else can Frank Oz.) While we still have the connection to what we're familiar with, we also have character development with our new cast of heroes like Rey, Poe, Finn, a new face in Rose and new person I'm sure we'll grow to love and hate DJ.

The blu ray looks phenomenal, the 4K version looks ASTONISHING! If you have a4K television you need to get yourself a 4K disc player. I'm not a audio/video geek by any means, but the movie in 4K just POPS off the screen and looks so crisp and clean. We're a far cry from the days of VHS!
