This afternoon we’re also continuing our work to get all of our older Blu-ray reviews (from the original Bits website) into the new review database. As such, I’ve just added my own “retro” reviews of Starship Troopers, the Top Gun: Special Collector’s Edition, Patriot Games, The Sum of All Fears, The Hunt for Red October, and the Transformers: Two-Disc Special Edition on Blu-ray, along with Barrie Maxwell’s thoughts on Knowing on Blu-ray. Longtime readers will probably have seen these before, but if you’re new to The Bits, they’ll be all-new for you and they’re good reading. So enjoy!
Also today, we wanted to let you know that Amazon.com is running a great deal currently on the Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection on DVD. The SRP is $199.98, but Amazon has it for just $79.99 (or 60% off) right now. Keep in mind that many of these films were released previously only on DVD-18 “flipper” discs that have since gone bad as the bonding layer decayed. This new set includes them all on regular one-sided DVD-9 discs, so they should last much longer. Amazon is also running a sale today on the Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection Blu-ray set. SRP is usually $149.98, but right now it’s selling for just $66.49 (or 56% off). Be sure to take advantage if you’re interested, and remember that doing so through our links helps support our work here at The Bits and we really do appreciate it!
Back tomorrow with new announcement news and some more Blu-ray reviews as well. Stay tuned...
