Welcome back to my new Dailies feature, Pick-Ups!

It’s designed to feature older Blu-ray releases that we haven’t gotten around to reviewing until now (sorry about that!), as well as select international releases and other unique titles on disc.

I’ll be doing this column on a weekly basis, so be sure to check back regularly for new titles that are worthy of your attention. [Read on here…]

This week, I’m highlighting three new reviews, including two from Arrow Video and one from The Criterion Collection...

To reiterate from last week, Arrow Video is a U.K. (Region B) based distributor (although they’ve recently come to the States as well). In order to watch their releases, you’ll need a native or Region Free BD player, or a Region Free mod for your existing BD player, all of which are readily available online. Also keep in mind that any standard definition content among the extras on these discs might require the ability to play and display PAL format video, so do check first to make sure that your player and TV/projector is PAL compatible.

I’ll be back next week with more titles, but until then, that’s all from me for now.
