While I’m gathering my final thoughts on my experience of Ultra HD Blu-ray at CES 2016 last week (to wrap up our coverage of the convention), I wanted to jump in quickly today to take care of a couple important pieces of business here at The Bits.

First, our own Tim Salmons has turned in his thoughts on Arrow Video’s new Blood Rage: Special Edition Blu-ray.

I’ve also just posted my in-depth review of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which streets tomorrow on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD. The film just took home the Golden Globe for Best Comedy or Musical Film of all things. Don’t miss it.  [Read on here…]

Today’s update is later than usual (and it’s also Wednesday’s update too), but you’ll see why in a moment...

We’ve just spent the whole day working on a brand new History, Legacy & Showmanship column from our own Michael Coate, featuring a look back at the original 1977 theatrical release of Star Wars, in anticipation of this week’s long-anticipated release of The Force Awakens. Michael has produced an exhaustively-researched chronicle of the film’s debut theatrical run, featuring trivia, period review quotes, and a listing of all the original theatrical engagements around North America. He even rounds the column out with a great roundtable interview featuring historian and author Marcus Hearn (The Cinema of George Lucas), filmmaker Patrick Read Johnson (5-25-77), filmmaker and special edition producer Charles de Lauzirika (Crave, and most recently documentary content for Disney’s Star Wars Launch Bay exhibit), and filmmaker Kevin Rubio (Troops). It’s a great read, so do give it a look and enjoy!  [Read on here…]

I am very hard at work on my review of The X-Files: The Complete Series on Blu-ray, so today’s update will be brief.

But our own Tim Salmons has turned in his Pick-Ups thoughts on Lionsgate’s outstanding Hannibal: Season Three on Blu-ray, complete with a superb batch of special features produced by our own friend Cliff Stephenson. Don’t miss it!  [Read on here…]

Let’s close out the week here at The Bits with a couple of additional Blu-ray reviews, shall we?

I’ve offered my own thoughts on Warner’s recent The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Blu-ray, and Tim has posted a look at Anchor Bay’s Goodnight Mommy.

We’ll be back with more reviews next week, including my in-depth take of Fox’s new The X-Files: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set, which the little green men of UPS have just dropped off on my doorstep. So be sure to watch for that.  [Read on here…]

Pick-Ups for the Week of December 7, 2015

Welcome back to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Sorry for the lack of reviews from myself lately. After the massive review coverage I did for Halloween, I decided to take a little break and tend to some personal business at home (as well as stuff myself on Thanksgiving goodies). Now I’m back and I thought I’d cover some titles that we haven’t covered here at The Bits just yet, including some that are hot off the presses.  [Read on here...]

Today’s update is a quick one, as we’re working on a bunch of new Blu-ray reviews for posting over the next week...

In keeping with this notion, we have Tim Salmons’ review of Scream Factory’s The Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie – Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray Disc for you this afternoon. I’ve also turned in a review of Magnolia’s recent Best of Enemies documentary on the 1968 TV political debates between William F. Buckley, Jr. and Gore Vidal – fascinating stuff. Don’t miss them.  [Read on here…]

Also, Tim Salmons has launched another batch of Pick-Ups Blu-ray reviews this week with his thoughts on Scream Factory’s The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. The Blu-ray streets on 12/22.  [Read on here…]

All right, let’s wrap up this week in style, shall we?

We’ve got a final Halloween Hangover “Leftover” review for you today from our own Tim Salmons: A look at Freddie Francis’ Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors (1965) now available on Blu-ray from Olive Films. If you’ve enjoyed Tim’s review work this Halloween season, be sure to drop him a note on his Facebook page and send him a little love. He’s worked hard and done a fantastic job. Well done, Tim!

I should also mention that I’ve just gotten a few big new Blu-ray titles (for some of the bigger spring and summer films) and I’m going to be posting reviews next week. So be sure to stay tuned for them.  [Read on here…]
