We’ve got just a quick update for you today...

First up, we’re starting with another new Blu-ray review. Tim has taken a look at John Sturges’ Joe Kidd (1972), as recently released on Blu-ray by our friends at Kino Lorber Studio Classics. Sounds like it’s a pretty solid release, so do give it a look.

Also today, our friend Arnold Leibovit has just kicked off a new crowdfunding effort to make possible the release of The Puppetoon Movie: Volume 3, a new Blu-ray collection of 18-20 more original George Pal Puppetoon short films scanned from the original 35 mm nitrate Technicolor prints (or successive exposure negatives) restored in 2K HD.
