Bits BD Review - Jim Hemphill spins Kino's The Monster That Challenged the World! http://t.co/YW4o0rRA7C
We’ve got a couple of good title announcements for you today, but first...
Our own Adam Jahnke has turned in his weekly installment of Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD in which he looks at this week’s latest small batch offerings from the Warner Archive and the 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives. Fans of Rick Ocasek and The Cars will be pretty happy I think. Enjoy!
Also today, Tim Salmons has given Criterion’s new release of Alfred Hitchcock’s Foreign Correspondent (1940) a review on Blu-ray (Dual-Format). Classic film enthusiasts should be quite pleased. [Read on here...]
Criterion has just announced their February release slate and it includes great filmmakers and films, both new and old. Starting on 2/4, you’ll get a BD/DVD Dual Format updating of François Truffaut’s Jules and Jim (Cat #281). On 2/11, Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is the Warmest color arrives in separate Blu-ray and DVD versions (Cat #695). This film was a bit of a sensation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (winning the Palme d’Or), and this is its debut release on home video in the States, thus the separate SKUs. However, Criterion says that a true BD/DVD Dual Format special edition is coming at a later date. Moving on, 2/18 will see Alfred Hitchcock’s Foreign Correspondent (Cat #696) as a Dual Format release along with Wes Anderson’s animated Fantastic Mr. Fox (Cat #700). Finally, Jean-Luc Goddard’s Breathless (Cat #408), Steven Soderbergh’s King of the Hill (Cat #698) and Roman Polanski’s Tess (Cat #697) will all street on 2/25 as Dual Format releases. [Read on here…]
