my two cents 1000

All right, to close the week out right I’ve got another new Blu-ray Disc review for you today, featuring my own thoughts on the unrated movie version of Universal’s long-awaited new Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.  As many of you know, I’m a huge Battlestar fan – I’ve watched the Ron Moore series three times start to finish on Blu-ray.  So was Blood & Chrome worth the wait?  Well, mostly.  Click here for all the details.  For the record, the Blu-ray and DVD street on 2/19.

In release news today, Disney and Yahoo have just officially unveiled the trailer for the late-2013 Blu-ray Disc release of The Little Mermaid.  The street date is expected to be 10/1.  You can see early BD cover artwork for the release below.

Meanwhile, Shout! Factory has announced a pair of new Scream Factory Blu-ray/DVD Combo titles for release on 5/21, including The Burning and The Town That Dreaded SundownThe Burning (SRP $29.93) will include audio commentary with director Tony Maylam and moderated by Alan Jones, as well as the Blood ‘n’ Fire Memories featurette.  The Town That Dreaded Sundown (SRP $26.99) will include the special bonus movie The Evictors and more TBA.

According to Amazon.co.uk, the long-awaited war classic The Great Escape is finally due to be released by MGM and Fox on Blu-ray on 6/3 in the U.K.   Expect a similar release date here in the States.  We’ll post official details as they come in.

Also, look for Fox to release the new miniseries The Bible on Blu-ray and DVD sometime in March.  It debuts on The History Channel on 3/3.

And Image Entertainment has set The Dick Van Dyke Show: The Complete Second Season for Blu-ray release on 5/7.

Have a great weekend, everyone!  Stay tuned...
