All right, we’ve got some reviews for you today and also a few more new title announcements...

First up, Joe Marchese has turned in his thoughts on Kino’s Night Tide on Blu-ray Disc.  In addition, Dr. Jahnke chimes in today with reviews of Warner’s The Bad Seed and Universal’s Eastern Promises, from director David Cronenberg.  Enjoy!  [Read on here…]

Now for those announcements...

First up, weren’t we just talking about this yesterday?  CBS Home Entertainment has revealed that Star Trek: Enterprise – Season Four will street on Blu-ray Disc on 4/1/14 (SRP $130).  All 22 episodes of the show’s final season will be included on 6 discs.  All the previous DVD extras will carry over and you’ll also get new audio commentaries, the 4-part Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise documentary and that writer’s room piece I mentioned yesterday, In Conversation: Writing Star Trek: Enterprise, which runs 90 minutes and features Brannon Braga, Mike Sussman, Andre Bormanis, David Goodman, Chris Black, Phyllis Strong and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.  Yes, 4/1 is April Fool’s Day, but it’s no joke.  You can watch a YouTube trailer for the release below and read more about it here on Star Trek.com.  The title is also now officially available for pre-order on Amazon by clicking on the cover artwork below...

Speaking of Star Trek, Varese Sarabande is releasing Jerry Goldsmith’s Star Trek: Nemesis – The Deluxe Edition soundtrack on CD on 1/6 (SRP $24.98).  The 2 CD set will be available in a limited edition of just 5000 units.  More here.

Meanwhile, Paramount has set Jackass presents Bad Grandpa for Blu-ray, DVD and digital release on 1/28.  The Blu-ray will include the film in both theatrical and unrated versions, along with deleted scenes, 8 behind-the-scenes featurettes, 3 deleted scenes and 6 Alternate Reactions from Real People.  You’ll find the cover art below.

I believe we mentioned this a couple days ago, but Warner Home Video has set Mayberry R.F.D.: The Complete First Season for DVD release on 4/8 (SRP $29.98).  All 26 episodes from the season will be included on 4 DVDs.

Shout! Factory has set Newhart: The Complete Second Season for DVD release on 2/11.  All 22 episodes will be included on 5 DVDs.

And Level 33 Entertainment will release the teen romantic comedy Getting That Girl on DVD on 1/14.

Finally, Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment president David Bishop is going to be leaving the company in March.  We’ve known David for many years here at The Bits, going all the way back to his time at MGM, prior to joining Sony.  We wish him all the luck in the world!

We’ll leave you with a look at the Blu-ray cover art for CBS’ Star Trek: Enterprise – Season Four, Entertainment One’s Being Human: The Complete Third Season, Paramount’s Bad Grandpa, Cohen’s Hail Mary and For Ever Mozart, and The Weinstein Company’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler (due 1/14)…
