Meanwhile today, Todd has checked in with his weekly Doogan’s Queue highlighting some of this week’s new Blu-ray and DVD releases. And our own Russell Hammond has updated the Release Dates & Artwork section here at the site with all the latest Blu-ray and DVD cover art, and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, whenever you order anything from Amazon after clicking through to them from our links, you’re helping to support The Bits.  In this era of pop-up ads and fake "sponsored" news content, it makes all the difference and we really do appreciate it.  [Read on here…]

Sorry for the quick post today. Some portion of the Interweb upon which The Bits resides has apparently been subject to a denial of service attack from Chinese hackers today, which has meant that access to the site’s been spotty all afternoon.

You’d be surprised how often this kind of thing happens online. Ah, the Interweb...

Anyway, we have a trio of Blu-ray reviews for you this afternoon.   [Read on here…]

Burnt Offerings for October 7, 2014

Here’s a surprise. The long dormant MGM Limited Edition Collection has announced that they’ll soon be manufacturing on demand again. Their initial line-up is scheduled to arrive next week and I’ll be taking a look at those titles then. Before you get too excited, almost all of the titles in this first wave are previously released out-of-print movies. At least it’s something, though, and hopefully we’ll start seeing some more obscurities making their disc debuts from MGM soon.

In the meantime, here’s your weekly rundown of the week’s new MOD discs and a selection of streaming titles worthy of your attention. As always, please consider making a purchase via one of these nifty banners and you’ll help support The Bits. Many thanks if you do.  [Read on here...]

All right, today’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review for the day from Dr. Jahnke is none other than Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers on Blu-ray from the Halloween: The Complete Collection box set. Watch for more reviews all next week.

The big announcement news today is that Disney has officially set Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 12/9, with a digital release on 11/18. Extras on the Blu-ray versions are still vague based on the studio’s press release, but will include deleted scenes, audio commentary with the filmmakers, a number of “making of” featurettes, a gag reel, and an exclusive look at Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
