My Two Cents

My Two Cents

Well, last night I finished the Star Wars—all 11 films in 4K. Pretty good, I have to say. I guess the thing I was most surprised by, now that we know it’s a larger narrative—and that some of the films are admittedly better than others—is that it all works together so well. The larger narrative does fit together pretty nicely. Admittedly, the sequel films feel a little more distant from the original trilogy than the prequels do, but visually and tonally they’re actually closer in spirit. Anyway, it’s an interesting experience and one I’m glad I waited for 4K to have. The films have never looked or sounded better, imperfect though some of them are.

All right, let’s have a news post, shall we?

First up here today, Tim has just turned in a review of Richard Stanley’s Color Out of Space on 4K Ultra HD from RLJ Entertainment. It’s an interesting film (and a solid disc) that’s worth a look. You’ll find that here. [Read on here...]


This Will Be a Day Long Remembered

Afternoon, folks! I hope you’re all well (and staying safe from the zombie plague and whatnot).

This is just a quick update to say that we’ll be back with our normal news posts, reviews, and regular site business tomorrow.

You may have seen that I finished my in-depth review of the complete Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4K Ultra HD box set yesterday here at The Bits—every film, every disc, and every extra.

The lack of news updates is due to the fact that—having finally completed my review—I’ve now begun a multi-day marathon of all 11 films. Because that’s really what this is all about, isn’t it? [Read on here...]


All right, just before midnight last night I finished posting in-depth reviews of three more of the Star Wars films in 4K, as I work my way through Disney’s new Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga box set.

So now available for your reading enjoyment are (just click on the titles): The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

Today, I’m going to tackle The Force Awakens, the re-issue of The Last Jedi (and it’s not just rebranded packaging—this is a newly-authored 4K disc, with a newly-authored movie Blu-ray, and a new Bonus Blu-ray too), and finally Rogue One: A Star Wars Story all in 4K. [Read on here...]


This is a quick post to let you all know that Russell Hammond has just posted the weekly update of our Release Dates & Cover Artwork section here at The Digital Bits with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As a NEW feature, the section now lets you search for upcoming Blu-ray titles, DVD titles, AND 4K Ultra HD titles seperately to help you find exactly the ones you’re looking for. Just click on RELEASE DATES & ART on the menu bar above to visit the page, and use the search options in the red bar (at the top) to sort by format and date. Once you find a title you like, just click on the cover art and you’ll be taken right to the Amazon.com pre-order page. Thank you for shopping through our links!

Morning everyone!

So I’ve been diving into this new Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4K box set with a plan to review all 9 films in the set, one by one. And I’m going to eventually get to Rogue One in 4K as well.

I started yesterday by reviewing the complete Original Trilogy in 4K, including A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, all of which are now up here at The Bits.

I’m going to dive into the Prequel Trilogy in 4K today, beginning with The Phantom Menace, which will be up this afternoon. Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith will soon follow. [Read on here...]
