DVD Download: #5


Check out DVD DOWNLOAD Issue #4 HERE

We certainly had a good week of Home Video updates as last year’s Best Picture winner has been announced as have a couple anniversary editions as well as eight new titles available for the Sony PSP along with menu shots for five of the titles.

First off before we get going I can also tell you that Warner Home Video will be announcing release dates for Constantine, “The West Wing” Season 5, The Polar Express and Alexander: Final Cut soon.

Curious what that Alexander: Final Cut is? Well, if you read our article in which Oliver Stone talks about his disappointment in Alexander you would have also read his comments where he said, “If I could go back, I’d have put events in linear order and limited the voiceovers. I’d have gotten the film to 2½ hours and taken out the homosexuality for the U.S. market and for countries sensitive to such things, like Korea or Greece. Kids weren’t comfortable with men who hugged, a king who cries and expresses tenderness.” That said, it has been made known that this is a definitive director’s cut of the film, and it is not known if the theatrical version will see a home video release, so we may be seeing a shorter and drastically changed film on home video, we should know soon.

With all that said, let’s get to the Download!

Million Dollar Baby 2-Disc and 3-Disc Editions
(July 12th)

Last year’s multiple Oscar winner, including Best Picture, is ready for its DVD debut as Warner Home Video has set a July 12th date for Million Dollar Baby. As you can see from the box-art above their will be two different packages you can purchase, but all-in-all there isn’t a drastic difference between the two.

As of right now we do know that the special features on both will include a James Lipton interview with the stars of the film, a boxing parallel comparing Maggie to real-life boxer Lucia Rijker and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The 3-Disc Collector’s Edition of version of the film will include the film’s soundtrack, which is qualified as the set’s third disc.

Pretty Woman (15th Anniversary Special Edition)
(September 6th)

If you ask me the spirit of double-dipping only benefits those that are yet to purchase the film on DVD in the first place and up next we have a case and point as Buena Vista has announced a 15th Anniversary Edition of Pretty Woman with a 10th Anniversary Edition already on the shelves. When does this become ridiculous?

Anyway, you can check out the special features below, and then click here to compare them to the 10th Anniversary Edition.

Any Samuel L. Jackson fans out there? Well, here is one that you may have missed.

The O.C. – The Complete Second Season

The second season of the popular Fox series makes its way to DVD on August 23rd and as much as I hate to admit it, I am actually looking forward to this collection as the first season set got me hooked when I had the chance to review it.
