We’ve got three new reviews for you to enjoy here at The Bits today, including my own takes on Spider-Man: Homecoming in 4K Ultra HD from Marvel and Sony, Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 on 4K Ultra HD from Universal, and also Netflix’s Stranger Things: Season 1 on Blu-ray. That last title is a Target retail exclusive, so head on over there to grab a copy if you’re a fan.

Speaking of Stranger Things, Netflix has just made Season 2 of the series available for streaming today. So I suspect that many of you will be spending some of your Halloween weekend thus occupied. Enjoy! [Read on here…]

Here at The Bits today, we’ve got 4 new Blu-ray reviews for you to check out. Tim has offered his thoughts on George Romero’s Land of the Dead from Scream Factory, Penelope Spheeris’ Dudes from Shout! Factory, and the Not Quite Hollywood Ozploitation documentary from Umbrella Entertainment. And I’ve chimed in with a look at Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, as newly-released on Blu-ray from Criterion. All of them are worth your time, so do give the reviews a read.

Note that more 4K Ultra HD reviews are forthcoming too, so watch for those over the next few days. [Read on here…]
