All right, folks... you are now looking at the new and upgraded Digital Bits website! The cosmetic changes are minimal, but they include more uniform and easy to read font weights across all browsers and devices. Previously, some of you who viewed the site on Apple devices would have difficulty reading certain pages (including reviews) because the text was too light or faint. That should now be corrected. What’s more, the site should be much faster to load, which is no small upgrade. We’re also working on some additional search functionality improvements that will our make older content/reviews easier to find.

And you may notice the “25 Years” icon next to The Bits logo. 2022 is indeed The Digital Bits’ 25th anniversary. The site launched in late 1997 after many months as an email newsletter within the home video industry. We’ve obviously grown over the years to cover new formats and topics, and we’ve had a great bunch of writers and staffers contribute to The Bits during that time—we value each and every one of them. And let it not go unsaid: We also value each and every one of you, our readers! Some of you may be new to the website, while others have been reading since the very beginning. Just know that we’re glad to count you all as part of The Digital Bits family, and we appreciate each of you. Thanks for sticking with us!

We’ve got a lot of catching up to do today, now that this first batch of site upgrades is complete, including reporting on lots of new release news and rumors. But first, we have more new disc reviews to share with you—reviews that have been posted here at The Bits in the last few days while I’ve been focused on the site upgrades. So let’s run down those now, and I’ll check back in an hour or two with that news update.

First up, Tim and I have taken an in-depth look at Matt Reeves’ The Batman (2022) in 4K Ultra HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. [Read on here...]

Today’s update is a quick one, as my Internet provider is apparently upgrading their equipment here in Orange County, and I have a scheduled outage that could knock me offline at any minute. But we do have some very good release news to report for you all today...

But first, Tim has checked in with a look at Brian Trenchard-Smith’s DeathCheaters (1976) on Blu-ray from Umbrella Entertainment.

And Stephen has turned in his thoughts on Clyde Bruckman, W. C. Fields, and Sam Hardy’s Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

We’ve also updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits, along with our Cover Artwork section that features new art for all kinds of upcoming Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K UHD titles with Amazon links, organized by street date. Both of those sections can be used to order and pre-order titles from Amazon, all of which goes to support our work here at The Bits (and we appreciate it!).

Now then, the big news today is that Kino Lorber Studio Classics has confirmed that they’re working on a physical 4K Ultra HD release of the outstanding John Frankenheimer action thriller Ronin (1998), starring Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, Stellan Skarsgård, Sean Bean, and Jonathan Pryce.
