We’ve got a couple more bits of announcement news today, as well as a pair of additional Blu-ray reviews for you...
Our own Tim Salmons has checked in with coverage of Disney’s The Jungle Book: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray, as well as Jean-Luc Godard’s 1996 For Ever Mozart, now available on Blu-ray from the Cohen Film Collection. Enjoy! [Read on here…]
Okay, we’ve got a couple things for you today, but the overall update is going to a quick one today. My wife was in a car accident yesterday – she’s okay, but our car was rear-ended and sustained some pretty good damage, so real life calls today with significant demands on my time.
Meanwhile, though, the good Dr. Jahnke has turned in his weekly Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column for this week with some good news about a great new catalog Blu-ray release from The Warner Archive, as well as additional DVD product from Warner Archive and the 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives. Don’t miss it! [Read on here...]

Also today, we’ve got some new announcements to report...

Mays. [Read on here...]
If you’ve been following my Queues this month, you know I’m not a big fan of how light this month’s been in terms of awesome titles. A few big’uns snuck through, but not enough. Well, this week’s no better, but at least it’s closing out. Welcome to the last entry of the month of April, 2014. Yee-haw. So without further noise, let’s get this ball down the hill.

Slow news day today, but we do have a couple of things for you...
First, Universal has revealed a few more catalog titles coming to Blu-ray on 7/1, including Bring It On, Cry Baby, Kindergarten Cop and The Little Rascals.
Universal has also set Non-Stop, starring Liam Neeson, for Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 6/10. Does anyone else keep mixing this film up with 3 Days to Kill, or is it just me? “Old Guys Kicking Ass” seems to be a real growth genre these days. [Read on here…]
We’ve got a couple of good title announcements for you today, but first...
Our own Adam Jahnke has turned in his weekly installment of Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD in which he looks at this week’s latest small batch offerings from the Warner Archive and the 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives. Fans of Rick Ocasek and The Cars will be pretty happy I think. Enjoy!
Also today, Tim Salmons has given Criterion’s new release of Alfred Hitchcock’s Foreign Correspondent (1940) a review on Blu-ray (Dual-Format). Classic film enthusiasts should be quite pleased. [Read on here...]
Sorry this column is appearing a little later than usual this week. But I would be remiss in my duties as The Bits’ official chronicler of Manufactured-On-Demand titles if I didn’t chime in on this week’s offerings. There are a few very intriguing discs this week, so head over to Ye Olde Warner Shoppe Dot Com (via yon banner) for Warner Archive’s titles and Amazon’s Wonder Emporium for your Fox desires.

Morning, folks. Or good afternoon, good evening or good night, as the case might be.
Also today, Warner Home Video has announced another Blu-ray version of Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music, specifically a new 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Revisited box set on 7/29 (SRP $39.96) that includes everything from the previous (but apparently not truly) Ultimate Collector’s Edition and adds new and unseen concert footage from Jefferson Airplane, Joan Baez, Santana, The Who, and more, as well as new swag (including a reproduction of the original Woodstock Festival tickets and vintage articles from Life Magazine and The New York Times).

I’m not kidding kids, this month is really coming down as one of the more disappointing months for releases in a while. It was bound to happen – April tends to be a stinker. And I’m not super sure why. It’s not like nothing of interest comes out, but it’s just not been a huge month in my mind. There are a few titles of interest, so let’s look at those. [Read on here…]
