Happy Thanksgiving, folks!  A day early we know, but this is going to be our last post here at The Bits until Monday, as we all go off to celebrate the holiday with family.  Couple things for you today… 

First, we’re pleased to bring you a trio of additional Blu-ray Disc reviews today.  Tim has checked in with his thoughts on Criterion’s Lonesome and The Uninvited in HD, as well as Scream Factory’s The Horror Show.  All are now available.  [Read on here…]

In announcement news, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 for release on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on 1/28.

Sony will also release Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine on Blu-ray and DVD on 1/21.

Meanwhile, MGM is releasing a new Blu-ray edition of the classic Robocop, mastered from a new 4K transfer.  Look for that on 1/21 (SRP $14.99).  See the cover art below.

Eureka Entertainment in the U.K. has just announced a batch of great Blu-ray titles for Spring 2014 release for those of you there, or here in the States with all-region players.  Among the newly announced titles are Computer Chess (2013 – 1/20), Wings (1927 – 1/27), Serpico (1973 – 2/14), Roma (1972 – 2/17), Hands Over the City (1963 – 3/14), White Dog (1982 – 3/24), Wake in Fright (1971 – due 3/31) and Nashville  (1975 – TBD for May).

And finally, I know some of you have been waiting for this: Universal will release Riddick: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray Disc on 1/14 (SRP $49.99).  It will include Riddick, Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick and the animated The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury.

And with that, we wish you and yours safe travels and a wonderful holiday.  Don’t forget to check Amazon for Black Friday Deals (including Blu-ray and DVD titles) in the meantime, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
