Top Blu-rays for 2018

AVS Forum Blu-ray Reviewer Ralph Potts offers his picks for some of 2018’s best Blu-ray releases.

It’s hard to believe that we are at the beginning of 2019. As in years past, when I began thinking about assembling this list, there wasn’t an abundance of titles coming to the forefront of my mind. But, once I began going over this year’s reviews, I didn’t have any problem coming up with a cache of titles that make worthy additions to the collections of enthusiasts. 2018 was indeed a good year for home video releases.

I will offer my picks for the Blu-ray releases with top notch audio/video as well as a list of some of my favorite films that were released this year on Blu-ray. The list will include Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray titles. These are not in any particular order nor is this list by any means intended to be comprehensive. I have included a link to the review of each entry, which can be accessed by clicking on the title. Some titles crossover between audio/video and favorite film. In those cases, the link will only be provided once.
