  • 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...

  • The Apartment (1960) Limited Edition Blu-Ray

    Arrow Academy announced today that they will release a limited edition Blu-ray of The Apartment (1960) from a new 4K restoration.  Billy Wilder’s Best Picture-winning film has always been a personal favorite of mine, so I considered this release a “must buy!” It appears that all of the extras...

Here are the announcements from the...
