Dino Day!

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 Jurassic Park and The Lost 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 DVD...

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, and I'm glad Disney is beefing up their DTS tracks, I can't wait.

Extinction... Loser, Amy Heckerling's "Clueless" follow-up was a major bomb over the summer and didn't go well with the critics. But for a tad bit under 25 dollars, 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.
