All right, it’s a slow day with the MLK holiday here in the States, but we do have some good stuff for you today.

Actually, today big news isn’t specifically Blu-ray-related, but it may have a strong bearing on a future Blu-ray release. Deadline Hollywood revealed over the weekend something we’ve suspected for many months now, which is that Fox is currently in negotiations to bring The X-Files back to TV, with creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson all apparently involved. It now seems likely that a Blu-ray release of the recently HD remastered series is waiting on these developments.  [Read on here…]

Today is review day here at The Bits, and we’ve got a fine batch for you. To kick things off, I’ve updated my review of DreamWorks’ first film ever, The Peacemaker, from 2010. We’ve also updated a pair of great 2011 BD reviews from our dear friend Barrie Maxwell on the old Bits website: Warner’s Citizen Kane: 70th Anniversary UCE and Ben-Hur: 50th Anniversary UCE. Finally, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews today too from our own Tim Salmons, including Synapse’s fine new Prom Night: Special Edition and a Robert Altman classic that’s now available from our friends at Criterion: Nashville. All these discs are well worth your time and the reviews are pretty fine as well, if we do say so ourselves, so we hope you enjoy reading them!  [Read on here…]

We’ve just a quick update for you today here at The Bits, but we do have some new reviews...

Our own Tim Salmons has checked in with a review of the Coen Brothers’ classic Fargo (the new 4K remastered edition) on Blu-ray from Fox and MGM, as well as Fox’s new Fargo: The Complete First Season TV series on BD (at least a little bit more of which actually takes place in Fargo, North Dakota, which is where I’m from). And since we’re on the topic, we thought it would appropriate to upgrade Dr. Jahnke’s fine analysis of Fargo on DVD (from way back in “aught four”) into the new review database as well. Enjoy!  [Read on here…]
