Well… it’s taken all weekend to get it finished, but I’ve posted my in-depth review of Warner’s new Batman: The Complete Television Series – Limited Edition Blu-ray box set here at The Bits. The episodes certainly look and sound better than you’ve ever seen them before. The set’s extras are a little bit of a mixed bag, but the packaging and swag are terrific. The set streets tomorrow (get your orders in here). Do give the review a look. I think classic Batman fans will be pleased.

In announcement news today, 20th Century Fox has just set Maze Runner for Blu-ray and DVD release on 12/16.  [Read on here…]

We’re closing out the week here at The Bits with a little bit of news and a bunch of “classic” Blu-ray reviews.

I’ve gone back and updated five Blu-ray reviews I did for the old Bits website and added them into the review database here at the new site. Longtime readers will probably have read them when we first posted them years ago, but they’ll be brand new for some of you that have only discovered The Bits recently. Included are my thoughts onTimur Bekmambetov’s Night Watch and Day Watch, Mel Gibson’s Braveheart: Sapphire Series, Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (the original 2-disc special edition), and finally the sports classic Rudy, starring Sean Astin. All are great films and are well worth your time, so if you haven’t seen them yet, do check them out. Enjoy the reviews!  [Read on here…]

We’ve got a couple things for you today…

First up this afternoon, I’ve written a review of Eagle Rock Entertainment’s Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go on Blu-ray, which is an HD presentation of the final Python reunion stage show recorded on 7/20/14 at The O2 in London. If you’re a fan of the Pythons, you’re definitely not going to want to miss it.  [Read on here…]

Good morning, dear readers! I trust this post finds you all in a better mood than the one I’m currently experiencing. I’m stuck at a car dealership getting a recalled part replaced and drinking really lousy coffee out of a styrofoam cup. (Which is why I posted the picture of Terry Gilliam today - he looks the way I feel right now in that picture.) But... at least there’s wifi. To quote Russell Crowe from a favorite film of mine, “What a fascinating modern age we live in.” Points if you can guess which film on our Facebook page.

Anyway, there may or may not be more news today than what I’ve got for you here, but this is what I have access too from the service center waiting room. I’ll update you on anything else tomorrow. Meanwhile, here’s what’s what for now… [Read on here…]

We’re pleased today to present the final review of Adam’s month-long Hell Plaza Oktoberfest 8 here at The Bits: It’s none other than the 1977 zombie/Nazi classic Shock Waves, directed by Ken Wiederhorn and presented on Blu-ray by Blue Underground! Congrats to Adam on another great Oktoberfest. We trust you all enjoyed it. If you did, be sure to send a little thanks and appreciation to Adam over on his Jahnke’s Electric Theater Facebook page.

Also here at The Bits today, we’ve got Bud Elder’s new View from the Cheap Seats column. This month, Bud asks the question: “What Movies Changed the Way You Look at Life?” He posts his own answer to this question, and challenges each of you to share your own lists too.  [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve got a couple cool things of you guys today, plus we’re issuing a challenge to the folks in charge at Warner Home Video. More on that in a sec.

First, the good Dr. Jahnke has just posted his penultimate Blu-ray review in this year’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest, and it’s a Christmas crossover horror classic: The Silent Night, Deadly Night: 30th Anniversary Edition from Anchor Bay!

We’d like to take a moment to give a hearty Bits “Huzzah!” to Jahnke for having completed his work on this year’s Fest! The final review of the season is in the can as they say, and it’s a goodun. So check back tomorrow for that. Well done, Adam!  [Read on here…]

All right, getting back to business here at The Bits

First up, Adam’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review for the day is none other than Rino Di Silvestro’s 1976 film Werewolf Woman, on Blu-ray from RaroVideo. Just two more Oktoberfest titles to go!

Also today here at the site, we have Adam’s weekly Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column, running down this week’s new small batch titles. And Russell Hammond has updated the Release Dates & Artwork section this week as well, with all the latest Blu-ray and DVD cover artwork, as well as Amazon pre-order links.  [Read on here…]

Burnt Offerings for October 29, 2014

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed an alarming increase in the number of MOD titles that are simply re-releases of out-of-print discs and a decrease in the number of never-before-released movies. We’re probably going to be seeing a lot more of that, unfortunately. But at least this week, there are a few brand new Most Wanted picks making their overdue DVD debuts. Let’s take a gander at them and at a special all-scary-movie edition of Wide Awake In Streamland for your Halloween viewing pleasure. [Read on here...]
