We’ve got a quick update for you today, to report that Criterion has just announced their January 2020 Blu-ray and DVD titles.

They include: George Cukor’s Holiday (Spine #1009 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 1/7, Sidney Lumet’s The Fugitive Kind (Spine #515 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 1/14, Jean-Luc Godard’s Le petit soldat (Spine #1010 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 1/21, and Sidney Lumet’s Fail Safe (Spine #1111 – Blu-ray and DVD) and Pedro Almodóvar’s All About My Mother (Spine #1012 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 1/28.

We’ve updated our Criterion Spines Project page here at The Bits to include them, and you can read more about each title on the Criterion website. You can also see the cover artwork below. [Read on here...]

Meanwhile, we’ve got a few more new disc reviews for you today, including...

Dennis’ take on Phillipe Mora’s Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? (1975) on Blu-ray from VCI.

Tim’s thoughts on Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XII on DVD from Shout! Factory.

And Tim’s look at Robin Williams: Comic Genius on DVD from Time Life.

Also today, we’ve got a couple new Blu-ray and 4K street dates from our retail sources. These are tentative, but look for Warner’s Joker on 12/17, with It: Chapter 2 due on 12/10. Lionsgate’s Rambo: Last Blood is also likely due on one of those two days. We’re also tentatively adjusting the street date for Sony’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to 12/10, based on a leaked pre-order date from Target. Again, these are tentative and shouldn’t be considered final until the studios make their official announcements. We’ve updated the 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

Here’s a look at the new Criterion Blu-ray cover artwork (note that we’ll add the Amazon pre-order links as they become live)...

All About My Mother (Criterion Blu-ray) Fail Safe (Criterion Blu-ray) Le petit soldat (Criterion Blu-ray)

Holiday (Criterion Blu-ray) The Fugitive Kind (Criterion Blu-ray)

Stay tuned...
