All right, we’ve got some great catalog 4K Ultra HD news to report today, but first we have one more new review...

I spent some time this weekend looking at Stanley Kubrick’s landmark war film Paths of Glory (1957) thanks to a fine new 4K Ultra HD release from our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics. For the first time, the image has been scanned from the original camera negative in native 4K—Criterion’s 2010 Blu-ray release was only a 2K scan of a fine-grain master positive—so this is unquestionably the best the film has ever looked at home. It’s a beautiful presentation and not to be missed by Kubrick fans and cinephiles.

All right, now for that catalog news... VCI Entertainment has set Bob Clark’s Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things (1972) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 10/11 as a new 50th Anniversary Edition. The release will include a new video introduction and Q&A with actor Alan Ormsby, along with a new 90-minute documentary on Clark’s horror films called Dreaming of Death. You’ll get lots of legacy special features as well. And you can see the cover artwork below the break. [Read on here...]

Dennis has posted his thoughts on Rich Ragsdale’s The Long Night (2022) on Blu-ray from Well Go USA Entertainment.

And Stephen has turned in a look at Henri Verneuli’s The Body of My Enemy (1976) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

More reviews are on the way as well, so be sure to stay tuned for them.

By the way, I know that a number of you have been trying to reach me via email and social media, but I’m currently neck deep in the middle of our big site update here at The Bits. [Read on here...]

We’ve got more release news for you today...

First, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release Mike Newell’s Great Expectations on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/15. Extras will include a piece on the premiere and the film’s trailer.

Speaking of Fox, we’ve officially confirmed that TCFHE is working on a Blu-ray and DVD release of the new Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey science TV series, hosted by our favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Inspired by Carl Sagan’s original Cosmos: A Personal Voyage from the 1980s (see our DVD review here), the new 13-episode sequel premieres this coming Sunday on Fox, NatGeo and a whole host of related cable channels. You can find all the details here. From the visuals I’ve seen so far, this show should blow the doors off Blu-ray. There’s no street date yet, but we would imagine Fox will announce the title in the next month or two, timed for release shortly after the series wraps up its broadcast run. [Read on here...]
