All right, we have details for you on the extras you’ll find on Disney’s forthcoming Studio Ghibli titles, due on 2/3/15. Pom Poko will include original Japanese storyboards and trailers. Porco Rosso will include original Japanese storyboards and a trailer, an interview with Toshio Suzuki, and a Behind the Microphone featurette. Finally, Tales from Earthsea will include original Japanese storyboards, trailers, and TV spots, and 2 featurettes (Birth of the Film Soundtrack and Origins of Earthsea). I should note that I’ve also informed Disney of the problem with the subtitles on the recent Princess Mononoke Blu-ray (and that they should check to make sure a similar screw-up doesn’t happen on these three new titles). When and if they get back to me with word on what they plan to do about Mononoke, I’ll let you know.  [Read on here…]

First up today, a quick side note: Our own Tim Salmons has turned in a review of Criterion’s Judex on Blu-ray, a French crime film from 1963 that’s actually an homage to a 1916 silent film of the same name. It’s a gorgeous B&W classic from director Georges Franju. Don’t miss it.

Now then… I promised you guys a Star Trek TV on Blu-ray post.  [Read on here…]

We’re closing out the week with more new Blu-ray Disc reviews here at The Bits.

To start with, I’ve got my thoughts on CBS’ Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Best of Both Worlds Blu-ray for you today, to go along with yesterday’s review of Season Three.  Both titles street next Tuesday (4/30).  Also today, Jeff Kleist has a review of Jurassic Park 3D on Blu-ray 3D for you to check out.  And we’ve upgraded of pair of additional BD reviews by our own Tim Salmons from the original Bits website – Paramount’s Beverly Hills Cop and Sony’s Black Dynamite.

With that, we wish you all a fine weekend.  See you Monday!
