All right, we’ve got another new Blu-ray review for you today. Tim Salmons has turned in his thoughts on Luis Buñuel’s Tristana on Blu-ray from the Cohen Film Collection. We’ve got more reviews coming this week too, including a little something with hobbits in it, so be sure to check back.

Also today, our own Russell Hammond has updated the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray and DVD cover artwork and pre-order links. As always, a portion of absolutely anything you order from Amazon (Blu-rays, tires, power tools, computers – you name it) after clicking through our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits. So please use our links when you shop with them – we sure do appreciate it.  [Read on here…]
