We’re closing out the week today with another pair of new Blu-ray reviews from Tim, including JD’s Revenge from Arrow Video and also Attack Force Z from Umbrella Entertainment. Do give them a look.

In announcement news today, Lionsgate has set Hèctor Hernández Vicens’s Day of the Dead: Bloodline for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 2/6.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has revealed that it will release Topaze (1933) on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/6. Extras will include audio commentary by film historian Kit Ellinger and a trailer. Better still, Kino will release a The Lion in Winter: 50th Anniversary Edition (1968) on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/13, mastered from a 2016 4K restoration, featuring audio commentary by director Anthony Harvey, an interview with sound recordist Simon Kaye, both 5.1 and 2.0 audio, and the trailer. You can see the cover artwork for both below. [Read on here…]

All right, first things first: We had a hard drive meltdown at the server farm a couple of days ago, the upshot of which is that The Bits (and several other sites) crashed for about a day. We’re on a newly-built server now and we seem to be back up and running, but it’s likely that there’s going to be some tweaking needed to get back to full stability. So anyway, we appreciate your patience. With a little luck, full normality should be restored by Monday morning.

In the meantime, I posted my in-depth review of Disney and Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray on Tuesday afternoon in case you missed it. I’ll have more to say about that subject in a minute.

Also, our own Tim Salmons has posted a new Pick-Ups review of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life: 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray. And Russell Hammond has posted the weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. Don’t forget, you can now sort titles by format in 4K in addition to DVD and Blu-ray. And a portion of anything you order from Amazon, after clicking to them from our links, goes to help support our work here at The Bits and we really appreciate it. [Read on here…]

We have just a quick update for you this afternoon, as we’re doing a little server work here today.

We’re pleased to present a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you all to enjoy. First, our own Joe Marchese has turned in a look at Kino Lorber’s recent BD edition of Hal Walker’s At War with the Army (1950), starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. Also today, Doogan has taken a nice deep dive into P.T. Anderson’s fascinating Inherent Vice – now on Blu-ray from Warner Home Video – and found it worthy of your time. Enjoy the reviews!  [Read on here…]
