Today’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest Blu-ray review from Dr. Jahnke is another great one from Scream Factory – Brian de Palma’s 1974 cult classic Phantom of Paradise. It’s well worth your time, so do check out both Adam’s review and the film on Blu-ray.

Now then... I’m about six hours into a return to Middle-Earth with Warner’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Extended Edition Blu-ray. But that means I’ve still got like ten hours of viewing to go. The disc has no less than TEN hours of documentary content, plus the film is over three hours (with about 25 minutes of new and extended footage) and has an audio commentary too. So I would say plan on reading my full review of the 5-disc BD set bright and early on Monday morning here at The Bits.  [Read on here…]

All right, this will be a bit of a quick post because there’s not a lot of news to report and we’re working on new Blu-ray reviews for you guys. As such, we have three for you today.

Dr. Jahnke’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review this morning is a dandy – Scream Factory’s new Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut – Limited Edition Blu-ray set. It’s another home run from a company that seems to do nothing but these days.

Speaking of which, I’ve checked in today with a review of Shout! Factory’s outstanding and remastered Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Complete Series box set on Blu-ray – a title we first revealed at our panel way back at San Diego Comic-Con in 2013. The remastering and extras were personally supervised by Pee-wee himself, Paul Reubens, and the result is pretty impressive.  [Read on here…]

We’re kicking the new week off with more Hell Plaza Oktoberfest from Dr. Jahnke. Today’s BD review from Adam is a great one: Scream Factory’s The Vincent Price Collection II, which streets tomorrow. Don’t miss it!

Also here at The Bits today, our own Michael Coate takes time in his new History, Legacy & Showmanship column to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction by hosting a roundtable interview with a trio of great film historians. Can you believe it’s been twenty years since the film’s debut in October of 1994? Crazy.  [Read on here…]
