Sarah and I had a funeral to attend yesterday, but I hope you saw that we posted a new Blu-ray review from our own Jim Hemphill – Julien Temple’s Absolute Beginners (1986), now available on Blu-ray from our friends at Twilight Time!

Now then, let’s catch up with some release news… [Read on here…]

Here’s something exciting: Warner is releasing a few new Paramount catalog title on Blu-ray on 10/13, including Along Came a Spider, The Core, Escape from Alcatraz, Team America: World Police, and Witness. Some of those have been released on Blu-ray previously, but a couple are new, including The Core. Those are great choices, though if we can make a suggestion to Warner, how about looking into releasing some of Paramount’s classic sci-fi films like the original War of the Worlds, When World Collide, Conquest of Space, etc?

Warner Home Video has also set Max for Blu-ray and DVD release on 9/29. This is the film about the military dog come home that’s currently in theaters.

Universal will release I’ll See You in my Dreams on Blu-ray and DVD on 9/1.
