We’ve got a couple things for you today…

First up this afternoon, I’ve written a review of Eagle Rock Entertainment’s Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go on Blu-ray, which is an HD presentation of the final Python reunion stage show recorded on 7/20/14 at The O2 in London. If you’re a fan of the Pythons, you’re definitely not going to want to miss it.  [Read on here…]

Also today, our own Michael Coate has a quick new History, Legacy & Showmanship column in which he offers a handy list of all the theaters now showing Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar in large format around the country. I’m seeing it this afternoon myself and I’m really looking forward to it.

In announcement news today, HBO has set Boardwalk Empire: Season Five for Blu-ray and DVD release on 1/13/15.

It appears that Warner is releasing a trio of classic MGM musicals on Blu-ray on 3/3/15, including Calamity Jane, The Band Wagon, and Kiss Me Kate. It appears that Kiss Me Kate will actually be released in Blu-ray 3D Combo format, as it was actually filmed in 3D back in 1953. We’ll have additional details as they come in.

Heads-up: @BillHuntBits is back from traveling in North Dakota (like being on the Moon internet-wise) so regular news updates will resume Monday (with multiple catch-up posts). Tim's been posting reviews all week & Bill will have new BD/4K reviews too (Jonny Quest, Shazam!, etc).
