As promised, we’ve got more Blu-ray reviews for you today here at The Bits...
First of all, I’ve taken a good long look at Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem, newly available on Blu-ray from Well Go USA, and found it to be well worth your time. You can read my thoughts on it here. [Read on here…]
We have some sad news to report this morning, but let’s get this out of the way first…
We’ve got a couple of new Blu-ray reviews for you today. Tim has given Criterion’s recent Blu-ray release of John Ford’s My Darling Clementine a look – a fantastic film and one of my favorite westerns. And I’ve chimed in as well with my thoughts on another favorite: Yoji Yamada’s The Twilight Samurai, a samurai classic from 2002, available now on Blu-ray from Twilight Time. Both films are well worth your time.
We also have a quick new History, Legacy & Showmanship column from our own Michael Coate for you today, taking a look back at Disney’s The Little Mermaid on the week of its 25th anniversary. Do give it a look. [Read on here…]

Good morning, dear readers! I trust this post finds you all in a better mood than the one I’m currently experiencing. I’m stuck at a car dealership getting a recalled part replaced and drinking really lousy coffee out of a styrofoam cup. (Which is why I posted the picture of Terry Gilliam today - he looks the way I feel right now in that picture.) But... at least there’s wifi. To quote Russell Crowe from a favorite film of mine, “What a fascinating modern age we live in.” Points if you can guess which film on our Facebook page.
Anyway, there may or may not be more news today than what I’ve got for you here, but this is what I have access too from the service center waiting room. I’ll update you on anything else tomorrow. Meanwhile, here’s what’s what for now… [Read on here…]
All right, getting back to business here at The Bits…
