All right, we have a very quick post for you today, as there’s very little news to report (other than all of this Sony Picture hacking business, which is being reported everywhere today) and we’re working hard on those Blu-ray reviews.

Speaking of which, our own Shane Buettner has checked in with his thoughts on a pair of Robert Altman catalog films newly available on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber – Thieves Like Us and The Long Goodbye.  [Read on here…]

Also today, Michael Coate has turned in a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column featuring an in-depth roundtable interview with film historians and Bond experts in celebration of the 45th anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Enjoy!

A couple quick release news notes...

Blue Underground has set a new Dario Argento Collection and Lucio Fulci Collection for release on Blu-ray on 3/31. The Argento Collection includes The Cat O’Nine Tails, Deep Red, and Inferno. The Fulci Collection includes City of the Living Dead, The House by the Cemetery, and The New York Ripper.

Here’s a little new cover artwork...
