Pick-Ups for the Week of May 31, 2016

Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thank you for tuning in. This past week, I caught a screening of The Nice Guys and I’m happy to report that it’s one of my favorite films of the year. Movie studios need to ignore its not-so-great box office reception and continue to let Shane Black write and direct more movies, in my opinion. He’s done very few, and that needs to change because they’ve all been excellent, especially this new one. [Read on here...]

Afternoon, folks! We hope you all had a fine long holiday weekend. We’d like to send a special shout-out today to all those of you serving in the armed forces around the world, and to the families and friends of the same who have been wounded or made the ultimate sacrifice. Our hats off to you.

Now then, we’re kicking off the shortened week here at The Bits with a couple new Blu-ray reviews...

First up, our own Tim Salmons has checked in with a new weekly Pick-Ups review column, which begins with an in-depth look at a fascinating 1960s horror title that’s gone through its share of revisions and re-issues: Blood Bath, which is now available in a very nice new Blu-ray edition from Arrow Video. Do give it a look.

Also today, Jim Hemphill has offered his thoughts on Henry Hathaway’s 1954 Cinemascope western Garden of Evil, which stars Gary Cooper, Susan Hayward, Richard Widmark, and Cameron Mitchell. It’s now available on Blu-ray from our friends at Twilight Time. It too is worth a look on disc, so enjoy the review. [Read on here…]
