Happy Tuesday, everyone. Hope you all had a great Fourth of July holiday. A special tip of the hat to the folks at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for successfully entering the orbit of Jupiter with their Juno mission! There should be some pretty cool science to come out of that over the coming months.

Today’s post is a quick one, but we do have a couple interesting items for you today...

First up, our own Tim Salmons has just turned in his latest Pick-Ups column review, this time featuring a look at Scream Factory’s new The Return of the Living Dead: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray! The disc streets on 7/19, and it looks like it’s really been worth the wait. Don’t miss it!  [Read on here…]

We’ve got a quick post for you all today, but it’s a goodun. It starts with a twofer from our very own Tim Salmons...

First up, he’s just turned in his review of Shout! Factory’s forthcoming Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXXVI on DVD. The set streets on 7/26, so do give it a look.

First up today, I wanted to direct your attention to Michael Coate’s recent History Legacy & Showmanship retrospective column here at The Bits, celebrating the 35th anniversary of the classic James Bond film For Your Eyes Only. We posted it last Friday afternoon and – as Friday posts tend to get overlooked as people head out to enjoy their weekend – I wanted to make sure you all knew about it. It’s well worth your time, so do give it a look here.

Also, we’ve now got the final cover artwork for Warner’s forthcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel, and Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut on 4K Ultra HD format. All three titles street on 7/19, and we have word that Batman v Superman will be the first 100GB (3-layer) title on the format here in the States. Here’s a look at the official cover artwork for all three...  [Read on here…]

We’re kicking off the week with a pair of Blu-ray reviews, both of them Twilight Time titles. First up is Jim Hemphill’s take on Ronald Neame’s I Could Go On Singing (1963). We’re also pleased to introduce a new occasional reviewer here at The Bits, the inestimable Jack Jameson, who checks in with a look at John Byrum’s Inserts from 1975. The film stars Richard Dreyfuss. Do give them both a look.

All right, we have a couple of quick additional bits of news and notes for you today...  [Read on here…]
