All right, as we posted earlier, we’re kicking things off today with Tim Salmons’ review of Scream’s new Mad Max: Collector’s Edition. The disc streets on 5/5 and is well worth a look.

In announcement news today, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set CHAPPiE for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/16, with the digital version due on 5/26. Both disc versions will feature the We Are Tetravaal featurette. To this, the Blu-ray will add 8 more featurettes (Chappie: The Streetwise Professor, Arms Race: The Weapons and Robots, Bringing Chappie to Life: The Visual Effects, From Tetra Vaal to Chappie, Keep It Gangster, The Reality of Robotics, Jozi: Real City and a Sci-Fi Setting, and Rogue Robot: Deconstructing the Stunts & Special Effects), along with an extended scenes (A Very Bad Man) and The Art of Chappie photo gallery.

Just a quick update today as we close out the week…

The major bit of release news today is sure to please you Studio Ghibli fans. Disney has announced the Blu-ray release of Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away (2001) and Hiroyuki Morita’s The Cat Returns (2002) on Blu-ray DVD Combo on 6/16. Spirited Away will include an Introduction by John Lasseter, 3 featurettes (The Art of Spirited Away and Behind the Microphone), original Japanese storyboards, the Nippon Television Special, and original Japanese trailers and TV spots. The Cat Returns will include 2 featurettes (The Making of The Cat Returns and Behind the Microphone), original Japanese storyboards, and original Japanese trailers and TV spots. We’re hoping that Disney will include proper English translation subs this time rather than a dub transcript (we’re trying to find out).  [Read on here…]

We have a pair of new Blu-ray Disc reviews for you today. Doogan has checked out a bit of an Japanese live-action oddball from Drafthouse Films called R100 (2013). And Tim has given Scream Factory’s Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture (1989) a look too. Both reviews are well worth your time.

Speaking of reviews, Warner’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Paramount’s Interstellar are both now in hand, so watch for my own reviews of them in the next few days.  [Read on here…]

We’re closing out the week with a few more new announcements.

First though, Amazon is having Gold Box Deal of the Day sales on three HBO box sets on Blu-ray: Entourage: The Complete Series, Deadwood: The Complete Series, and Treme: The Complete Series. Each is at least 50% off today only so be sure to take advantage if you’re interested. We’ll try to alert you to good deals like those over the next week or so as we head into “Black Friday Week”. Might as well get a few bargains if you’re in the market, yes?  [Read on here…]

All right, this will be a bit of a quick post because there’s not a lot of news to report and we’re working on new Blu-ray reviews for you guys. As such, we have three for you today.

Dr. Jahnke’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review this morning is a dandy – Scream Factory’s new Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut – Limited Edition Blu-ray set. It’s another home run from a company that seems to do nothing but these days.

Speaking of which, I’ve checked in today with a review of Shout! Factory’s outstanding and remastered Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Complete Series box set on Blu-ray – a title we first revealed at our panel way back at San Diego Comic-Con in 2013. The remastering and extras were personally supervised by Pee-wee himself, Paul Reubens, and the result is pretty impressive.  [Read on here…]
