Crank Gets a Best Buy Exclusive 4K UHD SteelBook May 23

Jason Statham's Chev Chelios is back in a Crank Best Buy exclusive 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray + Blu-ray + SteelBook on May 23.

It appears the Best Buy exclusive Crank 4K UHD Blu-ray + Blu-ray + SteelBook is just a collectible packaging upgrade. This has been the case with Lionsgate reissues so don't expect anything new in the overall package. For those who haven't picked it up, the SteelBook is damned slick looking and at that price point it's a bargain for stylish artwork.

The High-Def Digest Forums Are No More - They Have Ceased To Be

"E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-FORUMS!!"

Due to a slew of factors - namely costs to make the forums compliant with new privacy regulations on top of dwindling activity - the High-Def Digest forums are no more. While we hate to see them go, this enables our little website to maintain a measure of profitability so we can pay our writers and website admin team whilst providing you fine folks with new disc reviews, news updates (as best we can), and the occasional funny bit of fan reflection. Currently, the "Forums" button is in our navigation headers and footers but that too will soon be disappearing. 

What to do if you want to commentate? There's the good news. Each disc review and news post has a Disqus comment section where you're able to freely comment (so long as it's civil) and share your opinion about said film. Truthfully the HDD Forums accounted for a very small fraction of our daily traffic activity while we saw an impressive amount of activity in the Disqus section. 

If you have any questions you can comment below! And certainly reach out to us here:

Thanks again for being awesome readers and great online friends, Best -
