All right, just a quick one today as there’s not a ton of news...
Definitely the big release announcement today is that Warner Home Video has set Spike Jonze’s Her for Blu-ray Combo, DVD and digital release on 5/13 (SRP $35.99 for the Blu-ray). Extras on the Blu-ray will include 3 featurettes (The Untitled Rick Howard Project, How Do You Share Your Life with Somebody, and Her: Love in the Modern Age). [Read on here...]
In release news today, the best announcement is that HBO has officially set True Detective: Season One for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/10 (SRP $79.98 and $59.99). We’ll post additional details as they become available. Great damn show – we highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet. And with only 8 episodes, it’s an easy binge watch. [Read on here…]
We’ve got a couple more Blu-ray reviews for you today from Tim, once again both Scream Factory titles: Wes Craven’s cult classic Swamp Thing and Kevin Tenney’s Night of the Demons. Both are worth a look for fans of horror and are now available.
Don’t forget that Twilight’s 3rd Anniversary sale is now on and will run five days, giving you $10 off many of their great Blu-ray (and even a few DVD) titles in stock at Screen Archives Entertainment. Be sure to take advantage if there are titles you’re looking for. [Read on here…]
All right, I’m getting a little bit of a late start today after spending the morning at the dentist. Yeah. One of those days.
Anyway, the big news for today is that Criterion has officially revealed their June BD/DVD slate and, though it’s getting cliché to keep saying it every month, it’s another great list of titles. It starts with new HD updatings of Douglas Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows (Spine #95) and Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’Eclisse (Spine #278) on 6/10, followed by an updating of Peter Davis’ Hearts and Minds (Spine #156), the new Georges Franju’s Judex (Spine #710), and an updating of Peter Weir’s Picnic at Hanging Rock (Spine #29) on 6/17. As if that wasn’t great enough, Richard Lester’s The Beatles: A Hard Day’s Night (Spine #711) rounds things out on 6/24. SRP for each of them is $39.95. Be sure to visit Criterion.com for a complete list of all the great extras. Meanwhile, you’ll find the cover artwork below. [Read on here...]
