  • R.I.P., Jerry Lewis, The Total Film-Maker

    It’s a sad day in the Bottom Shelf.  One of my heroes is gone.  He was a nightclub comic, movie star, producer, writer, director, inventor, and humanitarian.  He could also be a son of a bitch at times, but the same could be said of all of us. Lightning struck (the...
  • Arrow Video November Titles

    The Criterion of cult, Arrow Video, posted their November Blu-ray announcements (including one late-October release) this morning.

  • Roy Colt and Winchester Jack on Blu-ray 10/10

    Kino Lorber has dated and detailed their Blu-ray release of the Mario Bava-directed Euro-Western Roy Colt and Winchester Jack (1970).  While this is considered a minor movie in Bava’s filmography, any Bava film and any Spaghetti Western will be a welcome addition to my video collection.  The disc is scheduled...
  • Porky Pig 5-DVD Set

    Bugs Bunny was not Warner Brothers‘ first animated superstar.  Five years prior to the creation of the wascally wabbit, a stuttering pig without any pants put Looney Tunes on the map.  Later this year, the studio will celebrate its portly sensation with a 5-disc DVD collection of Porky Pig’s...

  • Warner Archive Upcoming Blu-rays

    The Warner Archive posted a flurry of new Blu-ray announcements to their Facebook page last night.  These included the specs for the previously announced, unrated, international cut of John Landis’ Innocent Blood (1992), as well as the new announcements of Christopher Guest’s mockumentary Waiting for Guffman (1996), the Ray Bradbury...
  • The Old Dark House (1932) on Blu-ray 10/24

    The Cohen Media Group has confirmed that they will release a 4K restoration of the under-seen Universal horror film The Old Dark House (1932) on Blu-ray as part of their Cohen Film Collection on October 24th.  I know what I’ll be watching this Halloween.

  • Night of the Living Dead (1968) Blu-ray 10/17

    “They’re coming to get you, Barbara.” George A. Romero’s groundbreaking debut feature, Night of the Living Dead, which introduced the world to a whole new meaning for the word “zombie,” is finally getting a U.S. Blu-ray release!  Better yet, it’s coming in time for Halloween. After many rumors and much...
  • Adam West’s Final Film on Blu-ray 10/17!

    Take this post with a granule or two of salt, as there has not been official confirmation from Warner Home Video.  However, Barnes and Noble jumped the gun and listed a Blu-ray/DVD Combo release of the animated film Batman vs. Two-Face for pre-order, displaying an October 17th release date. Batman...
  • DiabolikDVD August Code Red Exclusives

    For a one-man operation (or one-Banana Man operation), Code Red DVD produces a tremendous amount of content.  Month after month they release Blu-rays of forgotten films and cult titles that otherwise would not likely receive an HD upgrade.  Banana Man is truly doing the Lord’s work. My only complaint...
