So did you guys all score your Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tickets? Seems like they sold pretty fast.

Do give it a look.
We’ve got a new Blu-ray review for you today, and I’m working on several more reviews on both Blu-ray and 4K. Today’s review is from Tim and features Arrow Video USA’s new BD of Dead-End Drive-In, which is now available. [Read on here…]
We’ve got a bunch of stuff to go over today to finish off the week...

By the way, when you go, you might also get a look at the new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming Interstellar, which I’m cautiously getting excited about.
All right, here at The Bits today, our very own Dr. Adam Jahnke has turned in a fine new JET installment featuring his latest An Honor to Be Nominated, this time looking back at director Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975). Don’t miss it. [Read on here...]
Today’s Oktoberfest giveaway is happening over on the Jahnke’s Electric Theater Facebook page and features a copy of Anchor Bay’s Halloween: 35th Anniversary Edition, so be sure to head over there for your chance to win!
Today’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review is Adam’s look at Scream Factory’s Q: The Winged Serpent on Blu-ray, so be sure to check that out.
And note that tomorrow’s review and giveaway feature the same title and it’s something really special – a rare and cool Halloween-themed DVD title that isn’t yet even available in stores, but we’ll have TWO copies to give away so be sure to check back then. [Read on here…]
