All right, today’s post is a quickie, as there’s a lot of other work going on here at The Bits today… trying to catch up on some things.

BUT… we do have a new Blu-ray Disc review from Todd Doogan this afternoon!  He’s checked in with his thoughts on Quentin Tarantino’s recent Django Unchained, and if you’re a Tarantino fan and/or you haven’t seen the film yet it’s definitely worth reading what Doogan has to say about it.

Also today, Sony has finally re-announced a title that was first slated for Blu-ray release a while back: Ishtar!  The film is now set to arrive on BD on 8/6 (maybe) with a 107-minute director’s cut.  It doesn’t appear that there’s much in the way of extras, but if you’ve been eager to have the film on disc in HD, you’ll (maybe) have your chance in a few more months.  (Though personally, I’ll believe it when I finally see the disc in my hand.)

Warner Home Video has set Political Animals: The Complete Series for DVD only release on 8/6.

And Anchor Bay has set the Syfy original movie Super Storm for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 8/13.

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Ishtar, along with Warner’s new BD anniversary edition of The Fugitive (due 9/3) and Sony’s House of Cards (6/11)…

Stay tuned...
