History, Legacy & Showmanshow - Michael Coate celebrates 35 years of The Empire Strikes Back! http://t.co/FbzrCvtwFl
Afternoon, folks! Hope you all enjoyed your long holiday weekend here in the States. Or, for the rest of you, that you had a decent Monday as such things go. Release news is a little slow today, given the long weekend, but we do have a couple things for you today.
First, as we suggested would happen back in March, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just set the excellent Jodorowsky’s Dune documentary for Blu-ray Combo release on 7/8. The only extra to expect will be deleted scenes. Regardless, this one is totally worth your time if you’re a fan of 70-80 cinema, science fiction, and or the work of director Alejandro Jodorowsky. Trust us, it’s a little gem. [Read on here…]
This being the start of the long Memorial Day weekend here in the States, today is about as slow (release news-wise) as they get. BUT…
…we do have couple of cool things for you this afternoon!
First, today marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom into theaters, so our very own Michael Coate has chosen to mark the occasion with a new History, Legacy & Showmanship column on the subject. Don’t miss it! [Read on here…]
We’ve got some announcement news odds and ends to report for you today, but first our own Tim Salmons has turned in a review of Scream Factory’s new Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray – the 1979 remake by Werner Herzog. The film and disc are definitely worthy of your time, so be sure to check it out. [Read on here...]
Today’s update is a quickie, but we’ll be back with more announcement news tomorrow.
Meanwhile, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews: Tim’s given Scream Factory’s Final Exam a look for you… and Dr. Jahnke’s done the distance with William Friedkin’s Sorcerer from Warner Home Video. Enjoy!

Also today, Dr. Jahnke has posted his latest Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column covering new deep catalog titles available from the Warner Archive, so be sure to check that out. [Read on here…]
