The Boys of Company Bits have stepped up today with some good stuff for you...

First up, Doogan has turned in his weekly Doogan’s Queue installment of his Gripe Soda column, running down all the great Blu-ray and DVD titles that street tomorrow.

To go along with that, Russell Hammond has updated the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray and DVD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, a portion of anything you order from Amazon after you click through to them from our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits and we really appreciate it. [Read on here…]

Also today, Adam and Tim have reviewed a pair of new/recent titles only available on DVD. Adam has checked out Paramount’s new DVD release of The War Between Men and Women (1972). The film stars Jack Lemmon and Barbara Harris. And Tim has checked out Shout! Factory’s Bullet in the Face: The Complete Series, from the creator of the infamous Sledge Hammer. Enjoy!

In announcement news, Magnolia Home Entertainment has set Last Days on Mars for Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 3/4 (SRP $29.98 and $26.98). Extras will include behind-the-scenes photos, a Visual Effects featurette and the film’s trailer.

Funimation has set Space Battleship Yamato for release on Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack on 4/29. This is the 2010 live action Japanese film.  We’re looking into the extras, but according to Amazon the running time is 138 minutes.

Olive Films has set Men in War, Sleep My Love and Pawn Broker for Blu-ray release on 4/15.

And Vertical Entertainment has set From Above on Blu-ray/DVD Combo and VOD on 2/4.

We’ll leave you with a look at the Blu-ray Disc cover art for Last Days on Mars, Space Battleship Yamato and Olive Film’s Betty Boop: The Essential Collection – Volume 3 (due 4/29)...

The Twin Peaks Blu-ray set is one of the most beautifully packaged home video sets I have ever seen.
