Well folks, we hope you all had a nice Halloween… and we sure hope you all enjoyed this year’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest. Dr. Jahnke and the rest of The Bits team pulled out all the stops to make it a goodun for you all, so there you go. We sure appreciate your readership.
Now then, today’s update is going to be a quick news roundup from the last couple days, and then we expect to be back next week with more reviews, including a couple titles you guys have probably been waiting for, including Warner’s Man of Steel and New Line’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – Extended Edition among others.

Okay, we’ll be back later today with our regular post, but this was too good not to jump in with it immediately. For about the next 13 hours, Amazon.com is running a “Gold Box Deal of the Day” on Fox’s complete Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set and also the 2-disc Prometheus on Blu-ray – just $20 for the box and $10 for Prometheus! The Alien Anthology box is one of the best special edition box sets ever produced, created by our old friend Charles de Lauzirika. So if you’ve been looking at it and haven’t picked it up yet, today’s the day. You’ll never get a better price than $20!
Back later! Stay tuned…
