Today’s update here at The Bits will be a quick one, as we have one major title announcement to report, plus what appears to be an audio problem on a key forthcoming 4K catalog title that we’re tracking.

First though, we have a few new disc reviews for you...

Tim has posted his thoughts on Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes (1977), as released in 4K Ultra HD by our friends at Arrow Video.

Meanwhile, Stephen has checked in too with his thoughts on Wes Craven’s Scream (1996), newly released in 4K Ultra HD by Dimension Films via Paramount.

And Dennis has weighed in as well with his two cents on Liesl Tommy’s recent Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect, new on Blu-ray from MGM via Universal Pictures. [Read on here...]

We start today with three more new disc reviews.

First up is my look at Random Space Media’s recent Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set, an all region release that includes the Netflix streaming sequel El Camino. Note that this set is currently selling for the same price on Amazon as Sony’s wide-release Blu-ray set that does not include the sequel film.

Also today, Tim has posted his thoughts on Roland Klick’s Deadlock (1970), a fascinating film newly released in 4K by Subkultur Entertainment via Vinegar Syndrome.

And Stephen has turned in a new 4K review as well, this one of Stephanie Rothman’s Terminal Island (1972) on Ultra HD, also from Vinegar Syndrome.

Now then, in announcement news today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has made their Mad Max Anthology official for release on 4K Ultra HD and Digital on 11/2, just as we’ve been expecting for weeks now. [Read on here...]

We’re starting today with more new disc reviews...

First up is our review of John Carpenter’s The Thing in 4K Ultra HD from Universal. I did the 4K video, audio, and extras portions and the film review itself is by our old friend and ex-Bits staffer Dr. Adam Jahnke. The film has really never looked or sounded better. It’s a great remaster.

Next, we’ve reviewed Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange on 4K Ultra HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Again, I did the 4K video, audio, and extras portions and the actual film review is by our friend Todd Doogan, also a former and longtime Bits staffer. (This review is even written in Nadsat, which fans of the film may appreciate.)

Also, Tim has turned in his thoughts on Eloy de la Iglesia’s Cannibal Man (1972) on Blu-ray from Severin Films. If you’re wondering why the cover artwork is just the title only, it’s because Google Adsense sometimes flags our site when we post images of Blu-ray and 4K titles that feature graphically violent or suggestive imagery. When they do that, we lose advertising revenue. So once in a while, this becomes necessary. But all you have to do is click on the cover in the review to see the actual cover art on Amazon.

And finally today, Stephen has posted a review of Ralph Nelson’s Lilies of the Field (1963), a Sidney Poitier film newly-released on Blu-ray by Kino Lorber Studio Classics. [Read on here...]
