Fantasia went so far beyond the standards of the day that it was well and truly ‘ahead of its time,’ and ‘one of a kind.’” — Disney Historian Jeff Kurtti

The Digital Bits is pleased to present this retrospective commemorating the diamond anniversary of the release of Fantasia, Walt Disney’s innovative and acclaimed third feature-length animated production (after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio) featuring Leopold Stokowski conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra over the memorable fusion of image and music.  [Read on here...]

We’re starting the new week off with more Blu-ray reviews, as promised. First up is my detailed take on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Extended Edition, which is set to street from Warner Home Video on 11/17. The Extended Edition of this film is the best of the trilogy, so it’s definitely worth a look if you’re a fan of these films. Also, our own Jim Hemphill has taken a look at Frank De Felitta’s Scissors (1991) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics. And we’ll have two more new BD reviews for you on Tuesday was well, starting with my thoughts on Paramount’s new Terminator Genysis early tomorrow morning.

Halloween Hangover – 2015 (The Leftovers!)

Well… Halloween Hangover took its toll this year, but thankfully, I escaped it with plenty of coffee and support from our readers. Hopefully, you enjoyed it and we did our bit to honor the past Halloween review work of longtime Bits staff writer Adam Jahnke. So thanks for tuning in – we really appreciate it. (Note that you can find all the reviews listed here, and they’re also in our regular review index here.)

In the frenzy of review madness, I actually collected so many possible titles for review that I had a few good ones left over. There were also a couple titles that arrived too late to be included in the regular Hangover line-up.  [Read on here...]
