Burnt Offerings For May 20, 2014

Seven, count ‘em, seven titles make their DVD debut courtesy of our pals at Warner Archive this week. If they aren’t familiar to you yet, they’re about to be with our weekly rundown of the wild ‘n’ wacky world of MOD. As for those spiffy banners down there, they’ll take you directly to such wonder emporiums as Warner Archive and Amazon, where you can buy and help support the work of Team Bits! Face it, Tiger, you just hit the jackpot! [Read on here...]

Okay, we’ve got a couple things for you today, but the overall update is going to a quick one today. My wife was in a car accident yesterday – she’s okay, but our car was rear-ended and sustained some pretty good damage, so real life calls today with significant demands on my time.

Meanwhile, though, the good Dr. Jahnke has turned in his weekly Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column for this week with some good news about a great new catalog Blu-ray release from The Warner Archive, as well as additional DVD product from Warner Archive and the 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives. Don’t miss it! [Read on here...]

Just a quick post this morning...

At long last, I've finally managed to post my review of CBS' Star Trek: Enterprise – Season Four on Blu-ray. The A/V quality is good, the new extras are excellent, the season itself is terrific and the set streets on 4/29. Don't miss it.

Also, our very own Dr. Jahnke has turned in a new installment of An Honor to Be Nominated in his Jahnke’s Electric Theater column. This time around he looks back at Sidney Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon. Need we say more?

Back tomorrow. Stay tuned!

All right, we’ve got a bunch release news for you today...

First though, we’ve got a new Blu-ray review from Dr. Jahnke for you this afternoon. It’s a newly-released Warner Archive title from 1970 directed by Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg, and starring Mick Jagger and James Fox – Performance. Do check it out.

My Star Trek: Enterprise – Season Four Blu-ray review will be up very soon. Sorry for the delay getting it posted, but there’s good reason. We have a special guest staying with us here this week: Sue Maxwell, the wife of our longtime (and dearly departed) Bits staff writer Barrie Maxwell. She’s been in town for the TCM Film Festival and now she’s visiting with us this week before returning home to Canada. So anyway, I appreciate your patience. And Sue sends her best to all of you!
