All right, first up today, we have more new disc reviews for you...
I’ve just posted my in-depth look at Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story in 4K Ultra HD from Disney and Lucasfilm. The three-disc set has nearly two hours of extras on the bonus Blu-ray and they’re pretty great. The title looks and sounds very nice in 4K Ultra HD as well. You can find the review here.
Meanwhile, I’ve also reviewed Shintao Katsu’s Zatoichi (1989), aka Zatoichi: Darkness Is His Ally, now available on Blu-ray at long last from Media Blasters and Tokyo Shock. If you’re a Zatoichi fan, it’s a perfect match to the amazing Criterion Blu-ray box set and completes the long-running Japanese film saga on Blu-ray.
Also, Dennis Seuling has checked in with his thoughts on Focus Films and Universal’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor? documentary about Fred Rogers on Blu-ray.
We have more new Blu-ray and 4K reviews on the way, so be sure to watch for them. [Read on here...]
All right, we have a bunch of news to catch you all up on. But first, we have a bunch of new and recent reviews to catch you up on as well...
First up, I’ve taken an in-depth look at J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The disc streets on 9/18 from Universal.
And Dennis has reviewed Gary Ross’ new Ocean’s 8 on Blu-ray from Warner Bros, along with Peter Markle’s Bat*21 on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics. He’s also updated his review of Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life on Blu-ray from Criterion with details on the new longer cut of the film, so be sure to take a look.
We have LOTS more Blu-ray and 4K reviews on the way for you guys this week, including my review of Solo: A Star Wars Story on 4K Ultra HD. So be sure to watch for them. [Read on here...]
Heads-up: Universal has just issued an official statement…
So there you go. Thanks to everyone at Universal Studios Home Entertainment for addressing this problem so quickly. Special thanks also to Rob Furmanek of the 3-D Film Archive for his assistance in getting to the bottom of this.
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...
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...]

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.
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...]
