my two cents 1000

We’ve got another new Blu-ray review for you today: Tim has taken a look Scream Factory’s new Carrie: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray as part of his Pick-Ups round-up of titles this week, and he’s found it to be yet another worth release from the company. Do give it a look.

In announcement news today, the Warner Archive has revealed that it’s bringing Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze (1975) to Blu-ray. The release date is TBA, but the disc will include a new HD remaster of the film, with DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and the theatrical trailer.  [Read on here…]

Afternoon, folks. Hope you all had a fine weekend. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover today, so let’s get right to it...

First up, we’ve just posted a trio of new Blu-ray Disc reviews, including my take on Peter Gabriel: Growing Up Live & Unwrapped + Still Growing Up Live, coming this week from Eagle Rock Entertainment, as well as Tim’s Pick-Ups column thoughts on Scream’s Raising Cain: Collector’s Edition, and Jim’s look back at Miss Sadie Thompson in 3-D from Twilight Time (on Blu-ray 3D format). All three titles are worth your time, so do give the reviews a read. [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve been busy here at The Bits these last couple days. Just a quick note first: Tomorrow is my birthday, so I’m not working. I turn 49, if you can believe it, which I can’t. But that’s how these things go. In any case, to make up for it, we’ve got a bunch of good stuff for you all to enjoy today. So let’s get to it...

First, I’ve just spent the last six months putting Samsung’s launch 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, the UBD-K8500, through its paces and I have my full review for you to check out today. Suffice it to say that there’s never been a debut player for any format (that I know of) that offers so much quality and performance for such a low price. If you’re thinking about upgrading to 4K Ultra HD and you’re looking for the best value for your dollar, this is the player for you. [Read on here…]

All right, just a quick one today, as we’re doing a little work on The Bits server this afternoon, and I’m also trying to finish up a hardware review for tomorrow.

We have a couple of new reviews for you today: Our own Tim Salmons has just checked out Lionsgate’s first two Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray releases, Chopping Mall (1986) and Blood Diner (1987), and he’s found them both well worth your time if you’re a horror fan. You can read his thoughts via the title links provided.  [Read on here…]

Afternoon folks! Hope you’re all doing well and Happy Rosh Hashanah to those of you who celebrate it.

We’ve got a couple things for you today... first a new Blu-ray review: Our own Tim Salmons has just checked in with his Pick-Ups thoughts on Shout! Factory’s new Shout Select title, Bill & Ted’s Most Excellent Collection, which arrived on disc last Tuesday. Tim would like you to know that the set is most definitely non, non, non, non, non-heinous. Do check out his review here.

Tim has also updated his recent review of Scream Factory’s The Thing: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray to reflect the updated audio track found on all final product copies now in stores. The track is fixed and sounds great.  [Read on here…]
