Today’s Oktoberfest review pits the good Dr. Jahnke against Kurt Neumann’s 1958 version of The Fly, now available on Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The take-away lesson: never play with unlicensed “disintegration/re-integration” machines.  Gotta love Vincent Price!

In announcement news today, the big news is that Universal has officially set Fast & Furious 6 for Blu-ray and DVD release on 12/10.  The Blu-ray will exclusively include an extended version of the film, the Take Control viewing mode featuring the director and cast, the 4-part Planes, Tanks and Automobiles documentary (includes The London Chase, Highway Heist: The Convoy Attack, The Antonov Takedown and Dom and Letty Race Again) and 3 additional featurettes (Gearhead’s Delight, The FLIP Car and Hand-to-Hand Fury).  In addition to this, both the Blu-ray and DVD will include deleted scenes, feature commentary with director Justin Lin, the On the Set with Vin featurette and the 4-part The Making of Fast & Furious 6 documentary (including The Fastest of Them All, Reuniting the Team, Letty’s Return and The Mastermind and The Mole).  [Read on here...]

We’ve got some cool stuff for you today, Bits readers!

First up, we have a trio of Blu-ray reviews for you.  Dr. Jahnke has upgraded his reviews of a pair of cheesy horror/sci-fi films on Blu-ray, including Midnight Legacy’s Alien 2: On Earth and FUNimation’s Alien vs. Ninja.  Told you they were cheesy.

Also, Tim Salmons has checked in with an in-depth review of 1428 Films’ fantastic new Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th documentary on Blu-ray/DVD Combo.  It’s SEVEN HOURS of Friday the 13th behind-the-scenes goodness, and how can any self-respecting slasher film fan pass that up?  Enjoy!  [Read on here...]
