We’re kicking things off here today at The Bits with a trio of Blu-ray reviews. First up is Tim’s take on Kino’s new BD release of John Huston’s western The Unforgiven from 1960. Also, I’ve posted a pair of Blu-ray reviews from the original Bits website, featuring my take on MGM’s Rocky: The Undisputed Collection from 2009, which contains Rocky I-V and Rocky Balboa, and Fox’s landmark Alien Anthology Blu-ray set from 2010, featuring multiple remastered versions of Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, plus a truly massive amount of special edition extras – truly one of the best film franchise box sets ever released on Blu-ray.  [Read on here…]

Speaking of the Alien Anthology, if you act fast you can pick the BD set up for just $25 on at the moment. Amazon also has a Gold Box Deal of the Day today only on Sony’s Breaking Bad: The Complete Series – the original barrel packaging version is 60% (or $120), the regular Blu-ray set is 63% off (or $86), and the DVD set is 63% off (or $60).
