Discs Are Rated
October 10th, 2000
Today I'm unofficially making it "Dino Day". Why? First
off, today is the day so many DVD fans have been waiting
for. The release of the Spielberg blockbusters
World. I have prepared reviews of the Dolby Digital
versions, so be sure to check them out. They are good
releases from Universal, and most of you should be happy
with them. Today has finally arrived, and now we only have a
few more really anticipated titles left to be released on
Speaking of dinosaurs, Disney's Dinosaur, their
big animated film from last summer will be debuting on DVD
on January 30th. There will be a standard edition with some
games, a featurette as well as some other stuff, but the
collector's edition will have the whole kit and kaboodle in
a two disc set with a lot of making of stuff. It's nice to
see Disney having dual releases for standard and collector's
editions. Anamorphic widescreen, DTS and Dolby Digital
tracks will be included on each disc. I enjoyed the film,

Extinction... Loser, Amy Heckerling's "Clueless"
follow-up was a major bomb over the summer and didn't go

you can get it in anamorphic widescreen and a pan and scan
transfer on the same disc, 5.1 Dolby Digital English, the
usual heavy Columbia subtitles, trailer, production
featurette and a music video. Ech.
Well, that's it for today. Enjoy those Jurassic Park and
Lost World discs everyone! Now if Star Wars and Indiana
Jones would be announced soon we'd be set.
