Well… there’s not much happening in the home video industry for the rest of this week it appears. With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, the studios seem to have shut down for the rest of the week.
We do have a couple quick things for you today…
First, Doogan has his weekly Queue for you – Thanksgiving edition. So be sure to check that out. [Read on here…]
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!
