My Two Cents
We have two more reviews for you to enjoy today, including Jim’s take on Guy Hamilton’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins from Twilight Time and Tim’s thoughts on Waxwork/Waxwork II: Lost in Time from Lionsgate’s new Vestron Video Collector’s Series. Both are well worth a look, so be sure to check out the reviews.
Meanwhile, know that I’m going to be spending the next few days working my way through a stack of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and regular Blu-rays in order to post reviews here on The Bits, including some major 3rd and 4th quarter releases. And yes… you can expect that Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D – Collector’s Edition will be among them. So keep checking back for those as I knock them out. [Read on here…]
We’ve got just a quick update for you today, as we’re busy working on site upgrades...
First up, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you this afternoon. Tim has checked out Scream’s outstanding The Exorcist III: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and found it more than worth the wait. Also, Jim Hemphill offers his thoughts on Abel Ferrara’s Napoli Napoli Napoli from Raro Video. Do give them both a look. [Read on here…]
After Friday’s web issues (which continued yesterday), we’re back with a normal daily news post here at The Bits and also some new disc reviews. But we’re going to be doing some additional work all this week to try and make some improvements to the server. So updates over the next few days may be a little spotty. However, we’re working on lots of new disc reviews, including Independence Day: Resurgence and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on 4K Ultra HD which we hope to post later this week. [Read on here…]
We’ve got another trio of disc reviews for you today, including my take on Sony’s Ghostbusters (2016) on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format and Shout! Factory’s new Nighthawks: Collector’s Edition (1981) on Blu-ray, which is one of the company’s new Shout Select titles. Whatever else you think of the Ghostbusters remake, Sony has included Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and Digital HD versions in the same package with the 4K without increasing the price - I wish more studios would do this. And fans of Nighthawks will be pleased to learn that the film’s soundtrack has been restored to include both The Rolling Stone’s Brown Sugar and Keith Emerson’s I’m a Man during the club scene. Meanwhile, Tim Salmons has also reviewed Entertainment One’s WNUF Halloween Special on good old DVD. Don’t miss them. [Read on here…]
Today’s update is quick one, as we’re doing a lot of disc review work here this week.
To wit... our own Tim Salmons has just checked in with his thoughts on Shout! and Scream Factory’s new limited edition Blu-ray titles, including Message from Space, The Velvet Vampire, and Time Walker. They’re only available from the Shout! website and are limited to 1,000 copies each. Do give the reviews a look. Message from Space in particularly is worth your time. [Read on here…]
