My Two Cents

Disney has just announced that Lucasfilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard, will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on 9/25 (just as we first predicted here on The Bits way back when), with the Digital release due on 9/14.

The Digital 4K offering will offer Dolby Vision HDR, but it appears that the physical 4K disc will feature HDR10 only. This would seem to be a reversal for Disney (and it’s one that appears to be the case with Avengers: Infinity War in 4K as well). Aspect ratio is 2.39:1 on all SKUs.

The 4K SKUs will feature Dolby Atmos object-based audio. There’s no 3D SKU planned for the US, but as usual it appears there will be an all-region Blu-ray 3D SKU available in the UK (click here) for those who wish to import. [Read on here...]



Boy, have we got some big news today!

First though, we’ve just posted a trio of new Blu-ray disc reviews...

I’ve turned in my thoughts on Shout! Factory’s outstanding new Gravity Falls: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set which is packed with love and a lot of extras. If you’re a fan, it’s outstanding.

Also, Dennis Seuling has offered his take on the Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty on Blu-ray from Universal and Dante Lam’s Chinese actioner Operation Red Sea on Blu-ray from Well Go USA. Enjoy!

Now then... let’s get to that news: First up, we’ve just learned that BBC Home Entertainment will be releasing Sherlock: Season One on 4K Ultra HD on 11/6 (SRP $29.98)! No kidding, you can pre-order it here already on Amazon.com. [Read on here...]


Yes, it’s true! We revealed this on social media last night and it caused quite a stir!

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced the 9/25 release of Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series on Blu-ray and DVD in honor of the series’ 35th anniversary.

Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series will feature all 96 episodes remastered in high definition on 12 Blu-ray Discs with lossless audio.

All-new extras will include an interactive Fraggle Music Celebration that allows you to sing along to every episode, the Life on Set: Moments with Jim Henson featurette, and a 1993 Today Show segment featuring Uncle Travelling Matt. [Read on here...]


We kick things off today with four new Blu-ray reviews, starting with Tim’s look at Don Coscarelli’s The Beastmaster (1982) now on all-region Blu-ray from Aussie distributor Umbrella Entertainment.

Also today, we have another Blu-ray review from new Bits staff reviewer David Steigman, who’s taken a look at Richard Quine’s My Sister Eileen (1955) from Twilight Time. David is a longtime cinephile who’s been watching films since the mid-1970s and has previously written reviews for the websites DVD Drive-In and EuroCult AV. He’s a big fan of the classic Godzilla films as well as other monster movies. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Erlinda, and works in marketing when he’s not reviewing movies.

We also have two new Blu-ray reviews from new staff reviewer Dennis Seuling, who’s offered his thoughts on the Warner Archive’s new Seven Brides for Seven Brothers: Special Edition (1954) as well as Universal’s Blockers. Dennis has been an avid film fan since he marveled at The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms as a kid. For over 25 years, he was the Film and Home Entertainment Reviewer for The Villadom Times, a New Jersey weekly newspaper, and has written for several other publications including the website Next Projection. He’s also developed and taught a Film Studies program for two New York City high schools.

On behalf of all of us here at The Digital Bits, as well as our readers, we’re very glad to welcome both David and Dennis to the team here! [Read on here...]
