My Two Cents
Here at The Bits today, our own Todd Doogan has just turned in a new review of Criterion’s fine The Samurai Trilogy box on Blu-ray Disc. They’re great films, worthy of any fan of the genre. Criterion’s done a nice job on them as always, so don’t miss them!
In other news today, 20th Century Fox has set Danny Boyle’s Trance for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/23. The Blu-ray will include deleted scenes, 7 featurettes (The Power of Suggestion: Making Trance, Kick Off, Danny’s Film Noir, Hypnotherapy, The Look, The Final Rewrite and Danny Boyle Retrospective), along with Spencer Susser’s short film Eugene, the theatrical trailer, the Trance Unraveled Easter egg and a UltraViolent digital copy. See the cove art below.
We’ve got just a quick update today, however we do have another new Blu-ray Disc review for you…
Our own Tim Salmons has given Paramount and David Chase’s Not Fade Away a look. As it happens, the film stars the late James Gandolfini. It’s definitely worth checking out.
In announcement news, Warner Home Video has set Paramount’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life and Stalag 17 for Blu-ray release on 10/8.
All right, we’ve got a couple things for you today here at The Bits…
First up, the good Dr. Jahnke has posted a new Burnt Offerings column featuring an update on all the latest MOD/DVD-R release news from Warner Archive and others. He’s also reviewed another new DVD-R title from Warner Archive – The Decks Ran Red. Do check it out.
Also today, Mario has turned in a new Inside Cinema column with a look at Disney’s newly-updated D23 website. If you’re into Disney history – not to mention The Muppets and other Disney-related content (eventually to include Star Wars franchise material as well) – it’s worth checking out.
All right, let’s get the new week started…
First of all, Jeff Kleist has turned in a review of Shout! Factory’s terrific new Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids: The Complete Series DVD box set, which arrives in stores tomorrow. If you’re a fan of the series, it’s well worth your time and money. Enjoy the review!
Also today, 20th Century Fox has set Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/23. Extras will include Twixt: A Documentary by Gia Coppola.
All right, so I finally saw Man of Steel last night… and I actually think it’s pretty damn good. More on that at another time. The point is, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Blu-ray pre-orders for the film go live on Amazon in the next couple weeks, so be sure to watch for them.
Meanwhile, BD, BD3D and DVD pre-orders for Paramount’s Iron Man 3are now live on Amazon. There are no official details or cover artwork yet, but they’re definitely up for pre-order so click on the links provided if you’d care to do so.
