Doogan’s Queue for July 23, 2014

It’s Comic-Con week, it’s Comic-Con week, it’s Comic-Con week. Odds are, right now as you read this, I’m drunk somewhere in California. If you’re a bettin’ folk, make that bet. This week is chock-a-block with titles of varying awesomeness in their field of genre - all across the board there’s something cool. Sci-fi: check. Horror: check. Fantasy: check. Foreign: check.

All right, LOT of ground to cover today. Updates this week are going to be a little sporadic, as Comic-Con week brings with it an intense flurry of visitors, meetings and other very important business here at The Bits. BUT… rest assured we will catch you up on all the important developments soon enough.

First up here at the site today, Dr. Jahnke has turned in a new installment of his An Honor to Be Nominated, featuring a look back at a Comic-Con appropriate former Oscar nominee… Skippy (1931)! It’s well worth your time, so do check it out.

Also today, Russell Hammond has posted the weekly Release Dates & Artwork update and note that our very own Todd Doogan will chime in tomorrow with his weekly Doogan’s Queue.

Now then… Comic-Con week also brings with it lots of announcement news, so let’s get right to it. [Read on here…]

An Honor To Be Nominated: Skippy

(If it can be difficult to remember who won the Academy Award for Best Picture, it’s downright mindbending trying to remember everything else it was up against. In An Honor To Be Nominated, I’ll be taking a look back at some of the movies the Oscar didn’t go to and trying to determine if they were robbed, if the Academy got it right, or if they should ever have been nominated in the first place.)

Let’s close out the week by starting with a little more TV Batman release news.

We posted the Blu-ray pre-order and temp artwork yesterday, along with word that the set carried an SRP of $269.97 (actual Amazon price = $188.98). Now we’ve learned that the DVD set is also available for pre-order today, with an SRP of $199.70 (actual Amazon price = $139.79). The DVD comes with its own cover artwork, which you can see here on the left. Blu-ray is on the right. [Read on here…]

Well… there seems to be much happening in the world today, but there’s a little bit of ground to cover in the home video world as well.

First up, as you’ve seen in our earlier post, Amazon’s now taking pre-orders on Batman: The Complete Television Series – Limited Edition on Blu-ray for an impressively hefty SRP. [Read on here…]

We’ll have more for you here on The Bits in a little bit, but first just a quick heads-up: Amazon.com has begun taking pre-orders for Warner’s Batman: The Complete Television Series – Limited Edition. The Blu-ray and DVD sets street in November (exact street date TBA), but the SRP for the BD set is a hefty $269.97 (or $188.98 with Amazon’s 30% discount). That might scare off a few people. Yikes. Pre-orders don’t appear to be up yet for the DVD set. Meanwhile, here’s the temp cover artwork Warner is using for the set on Amazon... [Read on here...]

Afternoon, folks! Sorry for our absence yesterday. Mrs. Bits (a.k.a. Sarah) had a minor surgery on Tuesday morning that was nothing major, went very well, and from which she’s recovering nicely today, but still took up all my attention yesterday as you can imagine. So thanks for your patience.

Here at The Bits today, Doogan has checked in with his latest Doogan’s Queue column running down this week’s latest in Blu-ray and DVD. Russell Hammond has also updated the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray and DVD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links, pre-orders through which help to support The Bits.

Meanwhile today, we’re starting to see the PR hype begin for Comic-Con related Blu-ray and DVD announcements, so let’s get right into talking about it… [Read on here…]

Doogan’s Queue for July 16, 2014

Howdy folks! July is cooking on by, isn’t it? Here we are at the mid-way point and it feels like it was June yesterday. But never mind that, you’re not here to hear about my thoughts on time passage dynamics. You’re here to see what’s streetin’ this week. Not much it turns out, but there are some choice cuts. let’s check them out, shall we? [Read on here…]

All right, first up today I wanted to let you all know that although The Bits is going to be at San Diego Comic-Con this month, a combination of personal/real-life business and other factors means we aren’t doing our regular Blu-ray and DVD panel event this year. Frankly, I think many of us just needed a break from the usual “demise of discs” commiseration, and wanted a chance instead to go down to the Con and just enjoy it in a more relaxed way.

That said, all the usual Bits suspects will be down in San Diego on Thursday and Friday. Before and after the Con, I’ll be reporting here at The Bits on all the BD-related news. You can expect details on TV Batman, lot of new Shout! and Scream Factory titles, the upcoming Twin Peaks BD set and much more. [Read on here…]
