Joey’s Home Movies For the Week of May 1st – ‘Deep Impact’ in 4K Alongside New Releases in ’80 for Brady’ and ‘Champions’

Deep Impact (1998) Cinematography by Dietrich Lohmann

Welcome back to my Home Movies! Today, the newest releases are there for the taking, but coming to 4K at last is none other than Deep Impact. Joining it are the likes of 80 for Brady, Champions (which we’re giving away a Blu-ray copy of here), and a new Criterion Collection release. What took top honors this week? Read on to find out…

Joey’s Top Pick

Paramount Pictures

Deep Impact (in 4K)

One of my all-time favorite disaster movies, Deep Impact is a surprisingly emotional epic. Led by a stirring turn from Morgan Freeman as the President, as well as Robert Duvall in a clutch supporting role, there’s blockbuster destruction, but also real heart and pathos. If you somehow haven’t seen this one, it’s worlds away from Armageddon. Especially in 4K, it looks great too. I really can’t recommend this one enough.

Also Available This Week

Focus Features

80 for Brady


The Ritual Killer

Skyline (in 4K)

Criterion Corner


Wings of Desire

From The Criterion Collection: “Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts—fears, hopes, dreams—of all the people living below. But when he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality and come back to earth to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot in black and white and color by the legendary Henri Alekan, forever made the name of director Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.”

Stay tuned for more next week…
