We hope you all had a nice holiday/WonderCon weekend... or just a weekend for the rest of you.

We’ve got a couple of new Blu-ray Disc reviews for you today. Our own Jim Hemphill has offered up his thoughts on Richard Brooks’ 1969 drama The Happy Ending, which is now available from Twilight Time. And, in case you missed it when I first posted it on Friday evening, I’ve completed my in-depth look at Disney and Lucasfilm’s forthcoming Blu-ray release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film looks fantastic and, let me tell you, Laurent Bouzereau’s new Secrets of The Force Awakens behind-the-scenes documentary is terrific. The Happy Ending is now available, while The Force Awakens arrives in stores here in the States next Tuesday. [Read on here…]

Okay... first things first: At some point today, I should have Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray in hand. As soon as I do, I’ll start working on my review and will get it posted as quickly as possible. So be sure to keep checking back for that.

Speaking of Disney, the studio has just set The Finest Hours for Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and digital release on 5/24. Both disc versions will include 2 featurettes (Brotherhood and The Finest Inspiration: The U.S. Coast Guard). To this, the Blu-ray will add the all-new documentary Against All Odds: The Bernie Webber Story, plus 2 more featurettes (Two Crews and What Is Your Finest Hour?), and a pair of deleted scenes (A Desperate Idea and The Story of How They Met). You can see the cover artwork down below.  [Read on here…]
