Afternoon, folks. Hope you all had a fine weekend. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover today, so let’s get right to it...

First up, we’ve just posted a trio of new Blu-ray Disc reviews, including my take on Peter Gabriel: Growing Up Live & Unwrapped + Still Growing Up Live, coming this week from Eagle Rock Entertainment, as well as Tim’s Pick-Ups column thoughts on Scream’s Raising Cain: Collector’s Edition, and Jim’s look back at Miss Sadie Thompson in 3-D from Twilight Time (on Blu-ray 3D format). All three titles are worth your time, so do give the reviews a read. [Read on here…]

All right, let’s get this over with. Our friends over at Trek Core have learned (and they’re right) something that’s going to infuriate Star Trek fans, and sadly suggests that neither Paramount nor Bad Robot have learned from fan complaints about their previous Star Trek Blu-ray mistakes. As you know, Star Trek Beyond is expected to street on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on 11/1, all with lots of extras... except filmmaker audio commentary. Well, you guessed it... once again, the iTunes Digital download version is going to have an exclusive “enhanced” commentary.

[Editor’s Note: Turns out there’s another Target-exclusive Bonus Disc too. See here: “Bonus blu-ray disc with over 90 minutes of extras including 45 minutes of exclusive content: Get a behind the scenes look at the film’s incredible visual effects, costumes and props. Plus, see how Director Justin Lin and the cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond created the climactic Battle of Yorktown, and more!”]

So... yeah. [Read on here…]
