Here at The Bits today, we’ve got 4 new Blu-ray reviews for you to check out. Tim has offered his thoughts on George Romero’s Land of the Dead from Scream Factory, Penelope Spheeris’ Dudes from Shout! Factory, and the Not Quite Hollywood Ozploitation documentary from Umbrella Entertainment. And I’ve chimed in with a look at Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, as newly-released on Blu-ray from Criterion. All of them are worth your time, so do give the reviews a read.

Note that more 4K Ultra HD reviews are forthcoming too, so watch for those over the next few days. [Read on here…]
