All right, we’ve got a bunch of title announcements for you today, including many new catalog titles coming to Blu-ray and DVD.

First, don’t forget that there are lots of great Cyber Monday deals to be had on Amazon (via this link) and elsewhere, so if you’re looking for great deals, they’re out there.

On that note, don’t forget that our new Digital Bits T-Shirts are available on sale over at our store on TeePublic (you’ll find that here) starting at just $13. Thanks for supporting us by buying our products!

Now then... Kino Lorber Studio Classics has just set Allan Arkush’s Heartbeeps (1981), Jeremy Kagan’s The Sting II (1983), Rudy DeLuca’s Transylvania 6-5000 (1985), and Ivan Reitman’s Legal Eagles (1986) for Blu-ray and DVD release on 2/11. [Read on here...]
