Daily Column: It's Doogan Day at The Bits, plus a shout out for Shout Out! http://t.co/cGO1kkJ8U8
All right, today is of course Election Day here in the States. In honor of the joyous occasion/apocalypse (depending on the outcome and your own particular political leanings) we thought we’d review an appropriate and recently released title on Blu-ray – Warner’s new HD upgrade of The American President. Enjoy!
Note that we’ll have the regular weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section posted later this afternoon, so be sure to check back for it.
In the meantime, Amazon is now taking pre-orders on Disney’s Peter Pan: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray. Street date is 2/5/2013 as expected (SRP $44.99).
