Displaying items by tag: Amazon Deal of the Day

Hey, looks like we do have a little bit of new announcement news for you today...

First up though, we’ve got a quick Amazon Deal of the Day to report: Network’s Monty Python’s Flying Circus: The Complete Series Blu-ray is just $75 for today only on Amazon (42% off). It’s the same 7 discs found the Deluxe Edition (reviewed here on The Bits), just without the books and deluxe packaging. So strike fast if you’re interested. Here’s the Amazon link.

Also today, we have word that FUNimation’s Akira 4K Ultra HD release doesn’t have HDR. The version released in Japan does, but apparently the discs released in the US and the UK do not. FUNimation has now established an exchange program to get a proper 4K with HDR disc sometime in February via the mail. You can find those details here and here (below):

“For those of you who would like to request the 4K HDR version of AKIRA, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (US/CA) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (UK/IRE) with “AKIRA 4K” as the subject, and provide your name, mailing address, email address and proof of purchase (receipt or confirmation email and photo of the disc).”

Okay, now for that announcement news: Kino Lorber Studio Classics has just officially set Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly for release on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray combo on 4/27. You can see the cover artwork above left. [Read on here...]

First up this afternoon, we have a trio of new disc reviews. I’ve given Sony’s The Da Vinci Code a look on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format and Tim has turned in a new Scream for a Week column with reviews of Jack’s Back and the Black Christmas: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray Disc. All of them are worth your consideration, especially for fans of the films in question.

Also, our own Russell Hammond has posted the weekly Release Dates & Artwork update with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, anytime you order literally anything from Amazon in the same session after you click to them through one of our links, you’re not only getting a good deal but you’re helping to support our work here at The Bits and we greatly appreciate it. [Read on here…]

Afternoon folks! We’re kicking off the new week with a pair of new Twilight Time Blu-ray reviews from our own Jim Hemphill. He’s taken a look at Hal Ashby’s comedy The Last Detail (1973) and George Roy Hill’s Hawaii (1966). Both are well worth your time, so do give them a look.

Before we get to the announcement news for the day, Amazon is having Deal of the Day sales on a number of Batman and Superman Blu-ray and DVD titles today, in honor of the release this week of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice (the early reviews of which are pretty good apparently). You can click here for up to 77% off Batman DVD and BD titles (including the Classic TV Series, the Tim Burton movie collection, and the Christopher Nolan movie collection), and here for 80% off Superman DVD and BD titles (including the Man of Steel: Collector’s Edition and Smallville: The Complete Series). Act fast to take advantage.  [Read on here…]

We have just a quick update for you this afternoon, as we’re doing a little server work here today.

We’re pleased to present a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you all to enjoy. First, our own Joe Marchese has turned in a look at Kino Lorber’s recent BD edition of Hal Walker’s At War with the Army (1950), starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. Also today, Doogan has taken a nice deep dive into P.T. Anderson’s fascinating Inherent Vice – now on Blu-ray from Warner Home Video – and found it worthy of your time. Enjoy the reviews!  [Read on here…]
