All right, we’ve got even more big title announcements for you this afternoon...

First, Warner Home Video has officially set Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper for Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 6/30 (SRP $44.95 and $28.98). Extras on the Blu-ray will include a pair of behind-the-scenes documentaries, including The Making of American Sniper and One Soldier’s Story: The Journey of American Sniper. By the way, some of you will be glad to learn that the Blu-ray will include a 7.1 audio mix compatible with Dolby Atmos.  [Read on here…]

Today is review day here at The Bits, and we’ve got a fine batch for you. To kick things off, I’ve updated my review of DreamWorks’ first film ever, The Peacemaker, from 2010. We’ve also updated a pair of great 2011 BD reviews from our dear friend Barrie Maxwell on the old Bits website: Warner’s Citizen Kane: 70th Anniversary UCE and Ben-Hur: 50th Anniversary UCE. Finally, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews today too from our own Tim Salmons, including Synapse’s fine new Prom Night: Special Edition and a Robert Altman classic that’s now available from our friends at Criterion: Nashville. All these discs are well worth your time and the reviews are pretty fine as well, if we do say so ourselves, so we hope you enjoy reading them!  [Read on here…]

We’ve just a quick update for you today here at The Bits, but we do have some new reviews...

Our own Tim Salmons has checked in with a review of the Coen Brothers’ classic Fargo (the new 4K remastered edition) on Blu-ray from Fox and MGM, as well as Fox’s new Fargo: The Complete First Season TV series on BD (at least a little bit more of which actually takes place in Fargo, North Dakota, which is where I’m from). And since we’re on the topic, we thought it would appropriate to upgrade Dr. Jahnke’s fine analysis of Fargo on DVD (from way back in “aught four”) into the new review database as well. Enjoy!  [Read on here…]
