Sorry for the quick post today. Some portion of the Interweb upon which The Bits resides has apparently been subject to a denial of service attack from Chinese hackers today, which has meant that access to the site’s been spotty all afternoon.

You’d be surprised how often this kind of thing happens online. Ah, the Interweb...

Anyway, we have a trio of Blu-ray reviews for you this afternoon.   [Read on here…]

Dr. Jahnke has obviously posted his latest Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review for you: None other than a look at Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007) on Blu-ray. Also, Tim has given a new DVD from the kids over at Red Letter Media a look: Gorilla Interrupted. And new Bits reviewer Shane Buettner has turned in his thoughts on Roman Polanski’s Macbeth, now available on Blu-ray Disc from Criterion. Enjoy!

In announcement news today, Lionsgate has set The Expendables 3: Unrated Edition for release on Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 11/25. Extras will include The Expendables 3 documentary, 2 featurettes (New Blood: Stacked and Jacked and The Total Action Package), an extended scene, and a gag reel. You’ll find the cover artwork below.

And our own Michael Coate would like you all to know that, according to a preview trailer on Disney’s new Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition Blu-ray, the next classic animated title due to get Diamond treatment from the studio (sometime in early 2015) is 101 Dalmatians.

Here’s a look at the cover art for The Expendables 3 (both versions) and also Disney’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions, which just went up for pre-order on Amazon (on BD and DVD) with a street date of 11/11...
