Before we get started today, we’ve got two more Blu-ray reviews for you...

They include Tim’s look at Ash vs. Evil Dead: The Complete Third Season from Starz and Lionsgate and Dennis’ take on Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Both are pretty good, so do give them a look.

Our own Michael Coate has also posted a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column featuring a look back at Bob Clark’s beloved classic A Christmas Story in honor of the film’s 35th anniversary. The roundtable discussion includes film historians Thomas A. Christie, Caseen Gaines, and Eugene B. Bergmann. Enjoy!

Also, we’ve posted the weekly update of our Release Dates & Artwork section featuring all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and pre-order links. Anytime you order literally anything from Amazon after clicking to them through one of our links, you’re helping to support our work here at The Bits and we appreciate it! [Read on here...]

Now then… the big news today actually broke late last week, and we’ve shared it on our social media already: Criterion has announced that they’re going to be launching their very own streaming service in the wake of AT&T’s planned shutdown of FilmStruck. It will be called The Criterion Channel and the plan is to launch it Spring 2019. The service will have all their movies, all their great programming, everything you’ve come to expect from Criterion and more. And they need your help! We strongly encourage everyone who might be interested – including all you cinephiles out there amoung our loyal Bits readers – to sign up as a charter member of the service. You can do so here.

We look forward to many great years of Criterion content online!

Back tomorrow with more. Stay tuned…
