All right, we’ve got more great stuff for you here at The Bits today…

First, our own Michael Coate has turned in a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column looking back at The Blue Max, including the film’s original roadshow release and also composer Jerry Goldsmith’s work on the score. This is, of course, in honor of the new Twilight Time Blu-ray release of the film today, as well as La-La Land Records’ excellent new 2-disc soundtrack CD release! Michael even includes an interview with our old friend (and film music historian) Jeff Bond, who wrote a track-by-track analysis of the score for the CD. It’s another great column, so definitely don’t miss it!  [Read on here…]

Also today here at the site, Tim Salmons has turned in a review of Criterion’s fantastic new Blu-ray Disc release of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox – which is definitely worth picking up if you haven’t yet. It’s now available in stores. Enjoy the review.

Finally, the good Dr. Jahnke has checked in with his weekly Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column, detailing the few offerings available this week from our friends over at the Warner Archive.

Back tomorrow with another review and a news update. Stay tuned!

In 50 years or so, the @Criterion edition of The Interview will make a nice bookend with The Great Dictator.
