History, Legacy & Showmanship - Michael Coate looks back at A View to a Kill as the film turns 30 http://t.co/saUeN92aC7
Welcome back to my Dailies feature, Pick-Ups!
It’s designed to feature older Blu-ray releases that we haven’t gotten around to reviewing until now (sorry about that!), as well as select international releases and other unique titles on disc.
I try to do this column on a weekly basis, so be sure to check back regularly for more titles that are worthy of your attention. [Read on here...]

We’ve got a pair of additional Blu-ray reviews for you today...
First of all, Tim has checked out a 1968 film from Sydney Pollack in Kino’s The Scalphunters. I’ve also updated and ported over (from the original Bits site) my own review of review of Fritz Lang’s science fiction classic Metropolis (1927) as released, restored and at long last complete, on Blu-ray by Kino in 2010. Don’t miss them. And note that I’ll be back with another new Blu-ray review tomorrow. [Read on here…]
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...]
Our own Tim Salmons has turned in an epic review of Criterion’s fantastic new Blu-ray/DVD release of It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World, which is available in stores now. Don’t miss it – both the review and the disc itself.
Also today, the good Dr. Jahnke has tuned in a new Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD installment today, running down the latest “manufactured on demand” DVD titles from Warner Archive and Fox Cinema Classics, so be sure to check it out. Marine Boy anyone? [Read on here…]
Well, folks... I continue to battle this damn flu, but I think I’ve got the better of it today at least. At any rate, we’ve got some good stuff here at the site today.
First, we’ve got a new review for you. Actually, it’s a rare hardware review here at The Bits. You see, we’ve found a piece of hardware so awesome, so useful and cool, that we just couldn’t help ourselves but have a little fun with it: Factory Entertainment’s Jaws: Collectible Bottle Opener. So here’s our very own Todd Doogan to put old Bruce through his paces. It’s definitely gets the Bits recommendation for great holiday stocking stuffer ideas.
Also today, Russell Hammond has posted the weekly Release Dates & Artwork section update featuring all the latest Blu-ray, DVD and Video Game (now including Xbox One and PS4) cover art and Amazon.com pre-order links. And as always, a portion of anything you order from Amazon after clicking to them through our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits and we really do appreciate it.
Now then, we’ve got some interesting announcement news for you today... [Read on here...]
Afternoon, folks! We’ve got still more Blu-ray reviews for you today...
First up, our own Dr. Adam Jahnke has checked in with his thoughts on Warner Archive’s new BD release of Sidney Lumet’s Deathtrap from 1982. Do check it out.
Also, Tim Salmons has given Disney’s The Great Mouse Detective: Mystery in the Mist Edition a look for you on Blu-ray Disc. Sounds like it’s far and away better than their recent Sword in the Stone BD, so thank goodness for that.
And we’ve added 8 more classic Blu-ray Disc reviews from The Original Bits website into our new review database here, including Universal’s Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series and Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, MPI’s Baraka, Blue Underground’s The Final Countdown, Warner’s King Kong (1933), A&E/New Video’s The World at War, Vivendi’s Monty Python: Almost the Truth – The Lawyer’s Cut and the original Bandai Visual release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s landmark anime Akira. Enjoy!
Now then, let’s get to today’s release news... [Read on here...]
Today is Blu-ray review day here at The Bits...
First up, we have a couple of brand new reviews for you. From our own Todd Doogan comes a look at Criterion’s excellent special edition of Brazil, lovingly upgraded for high-definition and so better than ever. Don’t miss it!
Also, Tim has turned in his thoughts on Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man, which is a darned fine special edition release produced by our old friend Charles de Lauzirika. And the movie’s not half bad too!
Plus, we’ve also upgraded a whopping ten previous Blu-ray reviews from The Original Bits into our new review database. This includes Sony’s Ghostbusters, Dr. Strangelove: 45th Anniversary Special Edition and the Close Encounters of the Third Kind: 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition, Warner’s Barry Lyndon, Heat, Contact and 2010: The Year We Make Contact, Universal’s Dune, DreamWorks’ Galaxy Quest and A&E’s Space: 1999 – Season 1.
