My Two Cents
We’ve got some big release news for you today here at The Digital Bits. First though, a couple new Blu-ray reviews…
First up, I’ve checked out CBS’ new Star Trek: The Next Generation – Redemption Blu-ray – the next in their series of cliffhanger episodes turned movie releases. And watch for my review of Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Four in the next few days as well.
Also this afternoon, Todd Doogan has given Kino’s The Living Dead Girl a look for you. It’s a classic Jean Rollin horror title from their Redemption label and it’s well worth your time if you dig the genre. […]
All right, we’ve got a couple good things for you here today at The Bits…
First, our own Mario Boucher has turned in a new Inside Cinema column looking behind the scenes on the making of Universal’s sci-fi film Oblivion, featuring director Joseph Kosinski and production designer Daniel Simon, among others. It’s an interesting piece that we think you’ll really enjoy.
The big news today, I suppose, is that Paramount has just officially announced the Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD release of World War Z on 9/17, with the digital streaming versions available online on 9/10. Both Blu-rays will feature the unrated version of the film, while the DVD will include the theatrical version. Extras on the Blu-rays will include the Origins and Looking to Science featurettes and the 4-part WWZ: Production documentary (includes Outbreak, The Journey Begins, Behind the Wall and Camouflage). Audio will be DTS-HD 7.1 MA on the Blu-rays and standard Dolby Digital 5.1 on DVD. You’ll find the cover artwork below… […]
We’ve got a couple of new Blu-ray Disc reviews for you this afternoon. Our own Tim Salmons has given RLJ’s Barrymore a good looking over for you and found it worth your attention, while Doogan’s saved you all the trouble of watching Anchor Bay’s The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse Blu-ray by taking the hit to his intelligence of your behalf. So there you go.
Also today, Michael Coate has turned in a new installment of his History, Legacy and Showmanship column featuring a look back at George Lucas’ American Graffiti on the occasion of its 40th anniversary today. Enjoy! […]
