Afternoon folks! We’re kicking off the new week with a pair of new Twilight Time Blu-ray reviews from our own Jim Hemphill. He’s taken a look at Hal Ashby’s comedy The Last Detail (1973) and George Roy Hill’s Hawaii (1966). Both are well worth your time, so do give them a look.

Before we get to the announcement news for the day, Amazon is having Deal of the Day sales on a number of Batman and Superman Blu-ray and DVD titles today, in honor of the release this week of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice (the early reviews of which are pretty good apparently). You can click here for up to 77% off Batman DVD and BD titles (including the Classic TV Series, the Tim Burton movie collection, and the Christopher Nolan movie collection), and here for 80% off Superman DVD and BD titles (including the Man of Steel: Collector’s Edition and Smallville: The Complete Series). Act fast to take advantage.  [Read on here…]
