  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Avanti (Kino Lorber)

    For the release week of 10/10/17: Garv’s Pick of the Week: Avanti : It’s a solid release week, and any number of titles could have taken the top spot.  However, the film I’m most interested in revisiting is this delightful late-period romantic comedy from maestro Billy...
  • Batman: The Animated Series Blu-ray

    Holy HD, Batman! Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has announced that they will release Batman: The Animated Series on Blu-ray in 2018.  No release date or details about the content of the set is available at this time.  We also don’t know if the release will be a complete series...
  • Summer Night (Notte d’estate con profilo greco, occhi a mandorla e odore di basilico, 1986)

    When an artist makes a masterpiece, it can be difficult to accept a work from that same artist that is merely good, well made, or fun.  Lina Wertmüller encountered this type of prejudice towards the films she wrote and directed in the late Seventies and beyond.  No matter how good...

  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Bridge on the River Kwai 4K UHD (Sony)

    For the release week of 10/3/17: Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Bridge on the River Kwai (60th Anniversary) : If you’ve been holding out to upgrade to 4K UHD discs until classic catalog titles hit the format, the good news is the tide is turning....
  • A Fish Called Wanda (1988)

    A Fish Called Wanda is a more popular, better-known title than I usually review in the Bottom Shelf, but for much of the general public, films more than 20 years old are not even on their radar.  Consequently, I felt that Arrow Video’s 4K restoration and Blu-ray release would...
  • Olive Signature Relaunches with Limited Edition Blu-rays

    Interesting things are afoot at Olive Films.  They released a press release today regarding the future of their Olive Signature line, and I think their plans for preserving their prestige sub-label make tremendous sense.  Their prior special editions — High Noon, Johnny Guitar, The Quiet Man, etc. — have been...
