My Two Cents
All right, just before midnight last night I finished posting in-depth reviews of three more of the Star Wars films in 4K, as I work my way through Disney’s new Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga box set.
Today, I’m going to tackle The Force Awakens, the re-issue of The Last Jedi (and it’s not just rebranded packaging—this is a newly-authored 4K disc, with a newly-authored movie Blu-ray, and a new Bonus Blu-ray too), and finally Rogue One: A Star Wars Story all in 4K. [Read on here...]

So I’ve been diving into this new Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4K box set with a plan to review all 9 films in the set, one by one. And I’m going to eventually get to Rogue One in 4K as well.
I’m going to dive into the Prequel Trilogy in 4K today, beginning with The Phantom Menace, which will be up this afternoon. Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith will soon follow. [Read on here...]
All right, we’re starting a new week here at The Bits and it’s going to be an interesting one. And we do have a little bit of release news to report.
Before we get to that though, we have three new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy today...
And Tim has checked in with a look at John Waters’ Polyester (1981), which was released on Blu-ray by Criterion late last year. So enjoy all three! [Read on here...]
All right, we’ll be back in just a little bit with a link to Michael Coate’s new History, Legacy & Showmanship film retrospective in a little bit.
[Editor’s Note: Here’s the link to Michael’s new retrospective of the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun, in honor of the film’s 45th anniversary. Note that this piece was unavoidably delayed from late last year, but we think you’ll find the wait was worth it. Michael is joined by historians Jon Burlingame, John Cork, and Lee Pfeiffer for a great roundtable discussion. Enjoy!]
In the meantime, Tim has posted a new Blu-ray review today, this one of Fred Walton’s 1986 April Fool’s Day: Collector’s Edition from Scream Factory. The disc streets on 3/24.
And we do have some new announcement news for you... [Read on here...]
