My Two Cents: Blu-ray/DVD News Catch-up – Universal to restore 15 silent films, plus Olive's July Slate & more http://t.co/ic656p7DFE
Bob has been wonderful enough to provide us with TWO copies of the Bob Burns’ Hollywood Halloween DVD to give away as part of our Oktoberfest celebration! And one of them is up for grabs today over on The Bits Facebook page! Entries will be accepted until 6 PM (Pacific) so head on over there quick for your chance to take home an amazing 2-disc DVD experience that’s not available anywhere else yet!
Meanwhile, Doogan chimes in today with a review of a new film by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn – Only God Forgives, available now on Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment.
And finally today, our own Bud Elder has turned in a terrific new View from the Cheap Seats column in which he regales us with stories of his experiences attending The National Cowboy Hall of Fame’s annual Western Heritage Awards over the years. Bud also remembers his late friend Ron Joy who, among other things, was Nancy Sinatra’s personal photographer and friend. Joy was also the official photographer for The Beatles when they first came to America. And as always, Bud highlights some great new classic releases on Blu-ray and DVD. You definitely don’t want to miss it.
And that’s all for now. Back tomorrow with the big Hell Plaza Oktoberfest finale!
