We’ve got an early post for you here today, in order to bring you our review of Paramount’s new Star Trek: The Compendium Blu-ray set, which is due in stores on 9/9! The 4-disc package includes the previous 2-disc Star Trek (2009) special edition as well as the long awaited 2-disc Star Trek Into Darkness special edition. This is a release we actually had a hand in here at The Bits, following our review and comments on last year’s extremely-disappointing original BD release of the sequel film, in which the extras were scattered as retail-exclusive content. We sounded the alarm, our readers and Trek fans online reacted, and Paramount got the message. Now they’ve made it right at last and they deserve a great deal of credit for doing so. Do check out our review and don’t hesitate to pre-order the set here on Amazon if you’re a fan.  [Read on here…]

Before we get to the day’s usual columns, reviews and BD/DVD release news rundown, I wanted to give you all an update on a couple of very worthy Kickstarter projects that we’ve mentioned recently here at The Bits. So let’s get right to it...  [Read on here…]
