Shill Notice: If you’re planning to purchase any of these titles, please do so by hitting the releases title click-thrus in the links below – your purchases keep money coming in and let’s face it, money can’t buy love – but it can pay for serve space.  [Read on here…]

Happy President’s Day! Last week was such a whopper; it’s almost nice to get a smaller release bundle to write about this week.

But smaller doesn’t necessarily say we’re not getting some great stuff. Check it out.

As always, be sure to show us some of that left over Valentine’s Day love and hit our click-thrus on the links below – your purchases keep us running and oh boy, do we appreciate it!  [Read on here…]

All right – so as to not waste your time, let’s jump right in, shall we? [Read on here…]

Doogan’s Queue for the week of February 4, 2014

February means Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, which means romance is in the air. This week’s releases are strong with love force – from the supernatural to the cliché.

Get yourselves ready to curl up with a good flick under a warm blanket with the one you love. [Read on here…]

Lots of good fun stuff coming out this week to Blu-ray.

And you know what – tell those digital-only snobs to shove it and go and buy some solid in-hand Blu-rays this week. It doesn’t have to be one of these below, but damnit, there’s nothing like having your own disc media in your hot, sweaty hands. [Read on here…]

Well look at that – you guys actually want to hear from me once a week. Your wish is my command. Unless Bill lied to me, and only HE wants to hear from me. In that case... because you didn’t ask for it: here’s a rundown of all sorts of things you can buy to own or rent to watch on Blu/DVD/download/MOD – no promises it’ll be available everywhere, but that’s life for you, right?  [Read on here…]

Hey-hey, my-my, physical media will never die – stick a pencil in my eye, let’s rhyme a bunch of words up.

I used to do this a few years back, and I found the column to be beneficial because – like the philosophy many porn stars have – I do it anyway, might as well get paid for it. Since I still keep track of these new releases for rent and purchase on my own, Bill thought it would be good to bring this back to The Bits. Let him know if he was right or wrong.

With that, here’s a listing of everything (of note) that will be available in stores/online for purchase on Tuesday. Many have already been available on digital demand (iTunes, satellite/cable VOD, Sony Network, Vudu, etc) so if that’s how you consume, you most likely already know they are out. [Read on here…]

Welcome to Todd Doogan's Gripe Soda!

What the hell is Gripe Soda – besides sounding utterly delicious and featuring the Kirby-est banner ever made?  It’s me rebranding myself because I was bored with my old Doogan’s Views column.  So yeah.  Is it any different?  Probably not.  It will most likely be updated about as much, honestly.  But Bill is a stubborn man and he’s a master at Jewish Guilt-Fu, so he’s likely to make me write something here at least once a month, if not more.
