To kick things off today here at The Bits, we start with some daily site business: Tim has turned in his thoughts on Shout! Factory’s new Blu-ray release of Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie. It’s certainly worth a look if you’re a fan of the film.

Also here at The Bits today, we’ve got the weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section, featuring all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, whenever you order literally anything from Amazon after clicking through any one of our links, you’re helping to support our work here at the site and we really do appreciate it.

One last reminder: Be sure to follow Bits editor Bill Hunt (aka, yours truly) on Twitter and Facebook if you’re plugged into social media. I’m trying to be a little more active there, as it’s often a better way to communicate with you guys than e-mail. Social media is also usually the first place I share new BD/4K reviews and breaking industry news before it gets written up into a Bits post. Plus, you’ll get my observations on other areas of interest. Hope to see you there! [Read on here…]

Here at the site today, Tim has turned in a new Blu-ray review, this time featuring Criterion’s recent release of Carnival of Souls (1962). It’s a terrific package, with an amazing transfer and fine extras too.

We’ve also got Russell’s weekly update of the Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K cover artwork as well as Amazon.com pre-order links.

We’ve got just a quick update for you today, as we’re busy working on site upgrades...

First up, we have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you this afternoon. Tim has checked out Scream’s outstanding The Exorcist III: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and found it more than worth the wait. Also, Jim Hemphill offers his thoughts on Abel Ferrara’s Napoli Napoli Napoli from Raro Video. Do give them both a look.  [Read on here…]

All right, we’ve been busy here at The Bits these last couple days. Just a quick note first: Tomorrow is my birthday, so I’m not working. I turn 49, if you can believe it, which I can’t. But that’s how these things go. In any case, to make up for it, we’ve got a bunch of good stuff for you all to enjoy today. So let’s get to it...

First, I’ve just spent the last six months putting Samsung’s launch 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, the UBD-K8500, through its paces and I have my full review for you to check out today. Suffice it to say that there’s never been a debut player for any format (that I know of) that offers so much quality and performance for such a low price. If you’re thinking about upgrading to 4K Ultra HD and you’re looking for the best value for your dollar, this is the player for you. [Read on here…]

We’re kicking off the day today with a couple of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray reviews... my thoughts on Shout! Factory’s recent Rocky Mountain Express, which is terrific, and Wonders of the Arctic, which is also a nice release. It’s fun to watch these 4K titles mastered from IMAX source material. They really look spectacular. Anyway, I may have at least one more review up today as well if you check back later, which would be Shout!’s Flight of the Butterflies in 4K. So do watch for that.

Here at The Bits today, our own Russell Hammond has just updated the Release Dates & Cover Art section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K cover art, as well as Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, anytime you order product from Amazon – literally anything at all – through any of our links, you’re helping to support our work here at The Bits and we really do appreciate it.  [Read on here…]
