I don't have a PS5 or 4K player at the moment

I await Drink's review.

I'm glad you liked it. Underdog is Fukasaku's masterpiece in my opinion, and there still isn't a bluray unless I'm mistaken.

It's been some time since I've seen it, but I was disappointed, and thought it was very by-the-numbers and forgettable, especially for an Ellroy adaptation.

I wonder if the 1080p bluray will also be remastered? I don't have a PS5 or 4K player at the moment, so it would be nice if the was a better 1080p version.

The Late Shift (1996) - A reasonably entertaining and briskly paced account of the Leno & Letterman drama surrounding the Tonight Show. It feels more like a bunch of fragmented scenes jumbled together than an actual movie, and it has nothing of value from a cinematic or technical standpoint. It's fine, but it's very, very TV. C

Manon (1949) - 7/10. H-G Clouzot's updating of Manon Lescaut. I've not read the source novel, but it would appear the change of period and locale works wonderfully well. The recent Arrow blu-ray edition comes with an interview of Clouzot from 1970. In that he reveals the genesis of the project, an uncomfortable train ride he took at the end of WWII: it caused him to imagine a scene about a woman trying to find a man by searching impassible train corridors. That became the scene in the middle of the film, a film that he had then to develop. It was only as he constructed the screenplay (with his writing partner Jean Ferry) that he discovered they were adapting Prevost's 1731 novel.

I'm making progress here. The only Clouzot features I have now yet to see are Miquette (1950) and The Spies (1963).
