  • 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...

    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...

  • MVD Rewind Collection

    They say that physical media is dying, but I don’t think it will ever truly die.  Large studio labels may eventually decide that it isn’t worthwhile to continue producing DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K UHD discs; but smaller labels, with their pulse on the collector’s market, will continue to cater...
  • R.I.P., Basil Gogos

    It’s a sad day for horror film fans.  Basil Gogos, the illustrator most associated with monster portraits has passed away.  For monster kids growing up in the 60s and 70s, Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine was our sacred text, and much of the lure of the periodical was the...
