We have four new disc reviews for you to enjoy today, along with some release news...

First, I’ve taken a look at the long-awaited physical 4K Ultra HD release of Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick from Paramount. You’ll be glad to know that the disc’s A/V quality is demo worthy, though the extras are somewhat wanting and you have to buy the Blu-ray version separately.

Stephen has offered up a review of Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist, also in 4K Ultra HD from Warner Bros. And he’s got a review of Rob Zombie’s The Munsters on regular Blu-ray as well from Universal.

Finally, Tim has reviewed a film that was thought to be lost but has now been re-discovered and restored for Blu-ray release: George A. Romero’s The Amusement Park (1975) from Shudder and RLJ Entertainment.

More reviews are definitely on the way, so be sure to watch for them.

And we’ve also posted a major update of our Release Dates & Artwork section here at The Bits (listed as Cover Art in the navigation bar above), featuring a ton of new Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover images and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, anytime you order literally anything from Amazon after clicking through to them from one of our links, you’re helping to support our work here at The Bits and we really appreciate it! (Thanks to our own Russell Hammond for his work on that section.) [Read on here...]

We’ve got a number of new disc reviews up on The Bits today for you all to enjoy, including...

Dennis’ take on Frank Capra’s Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) on Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

Stephen’s thoughts on Michael Lehmann’s Hudson Hawk (1991) and Frank Borzage’s Little Man, What Now? (1934) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

And Tim’s look at Peter Traynor’s Death Game (1977) on Blu-ray from Grindhouse Releasing, The Outer Limits: Season One (1963-64) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics, and George A. Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead (1968) on 4K from Criterion.

Rest assured that lots more reviews are on the way as well, so be sure to keep checking back for them.

In announcement news today, Eureka! has just revealed a new 4K Ultra HD release for the UK, this one featuring Robert Wiene’s landmark horror classic Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari (1920). Look for it to street on 5 December in a limited edition of just 3000 units, complete with a hardbound slipcase and a 100-page booklet. You can see the cover artwork above left and also below the break. [Read on here...]

We start today with two more new disc reviews...

Stephen has taken a look at Adrian Lyne’s Indecent Proposal (1993), as recently released in 4K Ultra HD by Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

And Tim has given Paramount’s controversial new 4K Ultra HD release of Sean S. Cunningham’s Friday the 13th (1980) an in-depth look.

That last title has unfortunately caused some debate and division among reviewers and fans of the film for what appear to be revisionist remastering and grading choices, particularly compared to the recent Scream Factory release (which was highly rated by all).

In any case, both titles—and these reviews—are worth your time and attention if you’re a fan of these films.

Also today, we have a bit of 4K Ultra HD release news, first from HBO... [Read on here...]
