We’re kicking the new week off today here at The Bits with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews...

First up, I’ve given Universal’s new Apollo 13: 20th Anniversary Edition a look and found it to be well worth the upgrade, especially given the newly-restored video presentation and the disc’s bargain $13 price on Amazon. Also, I’ve checked out Warner’s Jupiter Ascending on Blu-ray 3D... and I actually kind of liked it. The story is a glorious mess, but The Wachowski always manage to make their films interesting at least, and I found its send-up of camp 80s and 90s sci-fi cinema to be entertaining for a couple hours. Both titles street tomorrow, and Apollo 13 in particular is absolutely recommended.  [Read on here…]

Well... I'm spending this first day of the new week, post Memorial Day, to get myself settled into a new computer. After years of loyal service, my old PC revealed a terminal flaw back in December, so I bought a new one that I'm affectionately calling the WOPR. But as I've been incredibly busy of late, getting all my files moved over and organized, and getting all the needed software installed and whatnot, has taken several months. So forgive me if today's update is a quick one as I finish up that process.

We have a bunch of reviews we're working on for posting hopefully this week, including Universal's new classic Battlestar Galactica box set. Meanwhile, we have a quick release news update for you.  [Read on here…]
