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.

Speaking of which, I’ve also got a review of the Oblivion Blu-ray for you today as well – the title arrives in stores tomorrow.  […]


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!  […]


Okay… you guys have been waiting for this news for a long while:  Warner Home Video has just officially announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – Extended Edition on 11/5!

The release will be available as a 5-disc Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray set (SRP $54.98), a 3-disc Blu-ray set (SRP $35.99) and a 5-disc DVD set ($34.99).  All will include Ultraviolet.

The film itself has been extended by 13 minutes (total running time 184 minutes), and the set features nearly 9 hours of new special feature content, produced by Michael Pellerin and the same team who created the bonus content on The Lord of the Rings: Extended Edition sets.

Here’s a look a the packaging for all three (extras details follow)…  [...]
