My Two Cents

My Two Cents

All right, we’re working to smooth out some server issues here at The Bits, so today’s post will be brief. But we do have a couple of quick things to report for you today...

First, we’ve gotten a ton of requests over the years from readers wondering when DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt and Antz were going to be released on Blu-ray. And the answer, finally, is October 16.

You can pre-order them here and here on Amazon and you can see the cover artwork for Prince of Egypt on the left there (and also below).

Each will feature 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and it appears that the previous DVD extras will carry over. Thanks to Bits reader Chris C. for the heads-up on this. [Read on here...]


We’ve got a couple things for you today. First up, more reviews...

I’ve checked in with a look at three of the five titles in Paramount’s new Jack Ryan 5-Film Collection in 4K Ultra HD, including The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger.

Meanwhile, Tim has offered his thoughts on Scream Factory’s Return of the Living Dead, Part II: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray.

Dennis Seuling has taken a look at Herschell Gordon Lewis’s The Gore Gore Girls, also on Blu-ray from Arrow Video.

And David Steigman has turned in his thoughts on Shout! Factory’s new Sid Caesar: The Works DVD box set.

All are worthy of your attention, so enjoy the reviews! [Read on here...]


We’ve got three more Blu-rays for you today, including...

Tim’s look at Stewart Raffill’s Mac and Me: Collector’s Edition (1988) from Shout! Factory.

David Steigman’s take on Albert Pynn’s Blast (1997) from MVD.

And Dennis Seuling’s thoughts on Desmond Davis’ British comedy Smashing Time (1967) from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

I’m also working on several new 4K Ultra HD reviews, which should start appearing later this afternoon, so do check back for those.

In announcement news, we have details on Liongate’s next Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray title, Maximum Overdrive[Read on here...]


We’re kicking off the week with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews...

We start with David Steigman’s take on the William Castle classic The Tingler (1959), starring Vincent Price, now available on Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

We’ve also got David Seuling’s look at Robert M. Young’s The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez (1982), as newly released on Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

Both are worth a look, so check out the reviews and give them a shot.

Now then... in announcement news, we have a couple interesting things for you... [Read on here...]
