All right, as we wait for official X-Files Blu-ray news from Fox, our own Tim Salmons has just posted today’s Halloween Hangover Blu-ray review – a look at the James Clark’s Madhouse (1974), starring Vincent Price. The film is now available from Kino Lorber.

Speaking of The X-Files, there’s been no official announcement yet today, but New York Comic-Con starts tomorrow, so it’s very likely that an official announcement will be by the end of the weekend. It’s even possible that Fox will be taking pre-orders for the set this weekend tied to the Con (they frequently do at San Diego Comic-Con. So we should know more very soon. [Read on here…]

Well… we’ve waited a long time for The X-Files: The Complete Series to be released on Blu-ray. It’s been nearly three full years in fact since we first reported in The Rumor Mill here that the project was being remastered in HD for an eventual BD release. And here it finally is… almost! Fox Connect briefly revealed the cover art yesterday (see below), the SRP ($225 USD), and the street date (12/8). BUT… then they immediately pulled it down again. We would guess this means that the official announcement is imminent. So stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here’s what the packaging is going to look like…  [Read on here…]

We’re kicking things off on this Tuesday with another new Halloween Hangover review from Tim Salmons. This time, it’s a look at Mark Hartley’s Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films on DVD from Warner Home Video.

It’s official… sort of: Warner Home Video has just announced that Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant: Signature Edition is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase on streaming, digital HD, and UltraViolet (you can watch it here on Amazon now). Before you get bent out of shape about that, however, the press release also says that the film will be available on Blu-ray Disc in 2016. As many of you know, Bird has been lobbying WB hard for the film to be released as a really good special edition on Blu-ray. It’s possible that he needs the extra time to work on the special features. So while it’s not quite the news we’ve been waiting for, it’s good to know that a Blu-ray release is coming… even if fans will have to be patient a little while longer for it.  [Read on here…]

It’s a terribly slow news day today in terms of Blu-ray and DVD-related announcements, but that’s okay. You should all just go out and see Ridley Scott’s The Martian anyway. I saw it last night and I’ll tell you, it’s his best film since the 2005 Kingdom of Heaven: Director’s Cut. The film honors Andy Weir’s original book, retaining much of its scientific accuracy and sense of humor, and it nails the real-life spirit and dedication that’s at the heart of what NASA does, getting all the little details of manned spaceflight correct – no small task. Best of all, it does all this while managing to be entertaining as hell. I absolutely loved The Martian, and it’s that rare film worth seeing in 3D too – the vast open spaces of the Red Planet have never looked so epic.  [Read on here…]
