Okay… my apologies for the lack of a daily column yesterday. I find myself unexpectedly fighting a computer problem that’s keeping me from getting a lot of regular work done. So I’ve been stuck here in the lab pulling my hair out like a mad scientist for quite a few hours. Hope to have that resolved by the end of the day today.

Meanwhile, we are not without content for you to enjoy here at The Bits today!  [Read on here…]

As promised yesterday, I posted my review of Warner’s fine The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Extended Edition on Blu-ray, along with Adam’s Oktoberfest review of Twilight’s The Blob (1988) on the format. Adam follows that up today with his Oktoberfest thoughts on Robert Wise’s Audrey Rose on Blu-ray, also from Twilight.

And our very own Michael Coate has taken the opportunity to celebrate the 30th anniversary of James Cameron’s The Terminator in his History, Legacy & Showmanship column, with an interview featuring author Ian Nathan and our old friend Van Ling. Enjoy!

Now then, I should have things back to normal here shortly, so we’ll return with the usual news and announcements tomorrow, along with more reviews and columns. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

Stay tuned…
