All right, we’ve got a quick update for you today…

As many of you know, Universal released its Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection and Creature from the Black Lagoon: Complete Legacy Collection Blu-ray sets in stores last week.

We don’t yet have review product from the studio, but, as we reported last week, many readers began to complain about a problem with the new 3D presentation of Revenge of the Creature being subpar because of a suspected authoring issue. There were also reports that the 2D presentation of The Creature Walks Among was problematic.

We suggested that readers contact the studio via the customer service form on their website. [Read on here...]

All right, we’ve got your first look at what might be the cover artwork for Warner’s Superman: The Movie 4K Ultra HD release… by way of the official German retail cover artwork seen at left.

We know that the disc will include the theatrical version of the film in 4K, with Dolby Atmos audio.

There is also the possibility that the longer cuts will be included in the package on Blu-ray only.

The German street date is November 8, but we suspect it will be an October release here in the States.

We should know more soon, when Warner makes the official announcement, so stay tuned. [Read on here...]

Today is obviously a holiday here in the States, so there’s very little news to report.

We do, however, have a trio of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy...

Tim’s taken a look at the To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story documentary from Dread Central Presents.

David has given due consideration to the epic 2017 Russian historical actioner Furious from Well Go USA.

And Dennis has checked out Stephen Brio’s horror film Song of Solomon from Unearthed Films.

Do give them a look, if you’re interested.

The only bit of home video news we have today is that Media Blaster’s Zatoichi: Darkness Is His Ally (aka Zatoichi 1989) Blu-ray finally seems to be shipping from Amazon. I expect to have it in hand in the next couple of days, so I’ll let you know if it’s actually a real thing and what the quality is like in a full review soon. [Read on here...]

To start our post here at The Bits today, we have three more new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy, including...

Dennis’ look at the new RBG documentary about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, available from Magnolia.

David’s take on Jason Reitman’s Tully, starring Charlize Theron and written by Diablo Cody, available from Focus Features and Universal.

And Tim’s thoughts on Jack Arnold’s Boss (1975), a blaxploitation western starring Fred Williamson from Kit Parker Films.

We’ve also just posted the weekly update of our Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links.

All right, we’ve been working to smooth out some server issues here at The Bits over the past few days, so pardon any service interruptions that may occur. Hopefully, we should have things back to normal soon.

Before we get started on the news today, we’ve got three new Blu-ray reviews for you... Tim’s look at Ken Wiederhorn’s Return of the Living Dead, Part II (1988) from Scream Factory.

David Steigman’s take on Stephen Sommers’ Deep Rising (1996) from Kino Lorber Studio Classics and Mark Rydell’s Cinderella Liberty (1973) from Twilight Time.

And Dennis Seuling’s thoughts on Bill Holderman’s romantic comedy Book Club from Paramount. [Read on here...]

All right, we’re working to smooth out some server issues here at The Bits, so today’s post will be brief. But we do have a couple of quick things to report for you today...

First, we’ve gotten a ton of requests over the years from readers wondering when DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt and Antz were going to be released on Blu-ray. And the answer, finally, is October 16.

You can pre-order them here and here on Amazon and you can see the cover artwork for Prince of Egypt on the left there (and also below).

Each will feature 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and it appears that the previous DVD extras will carry over. Thanks to Bits reader Chris C. for the heads-up on this. [Read on here...]

We’ve got a couple things for you today. First up, more reviews...

I’ve checked in with a look at three of the five titles in Paramount’s new Jack Ryan 5-Film Collection in 4K Ultra HD, including The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger.

Meanwhile, Tim has offered his thoughts on Scream Factory’s Return of the Living Dead, Part II: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray.

Dennis Seuling has taken a look at Herschell Gordon Lewis’s The Gore Gore Girls, also on Blu-ray from Arrow Video.

And David Steigman has turned in his thoughts on Shout! Factory’s new Sid Caesar: The Works DVD box set.

All are worthy of your attention, so enjoy the reviews! [Read on here...]

In announcement news, we have details on Liongate’s next Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray title, Maximum Overdrive[Read on here...]

We’re kicking off the week with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews...

We start with David Steigman’s take on the William Castle classic The Tingler (1959), starring Vincent Price, now available on Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

We’ve also got David Seuling’s look at Robert M. Young’s The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez (1982), as newly released on Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
