All right, yesterday was a busy one. Seems like I can either get an in-depth Blu-ray review done, or a daily column, but sometimes not both! I went for the Blu-ray review, as you can probably guess, and the result was my look at Disney’s new Aladdin: Diamond Edition. The disc arrived in stores yesterday. Going through the previous Platinum Edition DVD item by item, to confirm what was on the Blu-ray and what wasn’t (most of it did carry over), took forever. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the review and if you decide to purchase the disc, please consider ordering through our Amazon links.  [Read on here…]

Given that this is Columbus Day here in the States, announcement news is a little bit thin today. But we do have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you.

Tim has posted his latest Halloween Hangover review, featuring Scream Factory’s Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight – Collector’s Edition, which arrives on Blu-ray next week (on 10/20). I’ve also posted my thoughts on Disney’s Tomorrowland, which streets on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. And if you check back tomorrow, I’ll have another Disney Blu-ray review featuring the Aladdin: Diamond Edition, which also hits stores tomorrow. So be sure to check back for that.  [Read on here…]

We’re kicking the new week off today here at The Bits with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews...

First up, I’ve given Universal’s new Apollo 13: 20th Anniversary Edition a look and found it to be well worth the upgrade, especially given the newly-restored video presentation and the disc’s bargain $13 price on Amazon. Also, I’ve checked out Warner’s Jupiter Ascending on Blu-ray 3D... and I actually kind of liked it. The story is a glorious mess, but The Wachowski always manage to make their films interesting at least, and I found its send-up of camp 80s and 90s sci-fi cinema to be entertaining for a couple hours. Both titles street tomorrow, and Apollo 13 in particular is absolutely recommended.  [Read on here…]

All right, just a quick update today, but we DO have some pretty exciting news to report...

First, Disney has just set their Aladdin: Diamond Edition for Blu-ray release on 10/13 (SRP $36.99). We know this because Amazon is already taking pre-orders on it. We’re waiting to hear more about the content and extras (we think the official press announcement is a few weeks away yet), but you can see the Blu-ray cover artwork on the left there and you can pre-order it on Amazon by clicking here or on the cover image below.  [Read on here…]
