We’re starting the day off with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews from our own Jim Hemphill, who takes a look at Ivan Passer’s Cutter’s Way (1981) and Fred Zinnemann’s The Member of the Wedding (1952), both now available on BD from Twilight Time. Enjoy!

The big announcement news today is that Universal Studios Home Entertainment has just officially set the Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Warcraft for 9/27, with the Digital HD release expected on 9/13.  [Read on here…]
