Today’s New Releases

Wooo hooo! I Now Own It!
Admittedly I am still depressed that the SPORTS NIGHT DVD set that I was looking forward to last week was delayed in Canada (with no new date announced), but I can guarantee you that today’s biggest release WILL NOT be delayed.
So, may the DVD be with you!
Here are the new DVD and Video releases for Tuesday, November 12th, 2002.
Star Wars: Episode II-Attack Of The Clones- Obi-Wan tutors Anakin as a Jedi and the Empire gains power. And even if you didn’t like the movie I did! Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor star.
Lucas and his team, as they did on the Phantom Menace DVD, excel in presenting the film and layering in bonus materials. On disc one, Lucas and six collaborators provide the methodical, insightful commentary. The picture, originally shot on digital video and transferred from a digital source, is crystal sharp. The sound, of course, is amazing.
The second disc, with its dynamic menus, offers trailers, TV spots, a music video, exclusive web links, posters, production photos, eight deleted scenes with optional intros, 20 separate documentaries on every aspect of filming from casting to design, costumes, sound, music, locations and special effects. Lucas even shows his dry sense of humour with a mock-doc on the history of R2-D2 as a temperamental diva movie star. Overall, this release does Star Wars fans proud.
Episode II is being released in both widescreen and fullscreen DVD editions.
Bad Company- A twin brother goes from street hustler to CIA agent in this movie that is one of the worst flicks of 2002. The absolute worst! (Chris Rock, Anthony Hopkins, Brooke Smith)
The Importance Of Being Earnest- Two men using same name fall in love with same girl. (Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Rupert Everett)
South Park: The Complete First Season- All of the 13 episodes from the first year of this awesome show are on this DVD set. WHAT IS NOT is Matt and Trey’s commentary which has been taken off since the studio deemed it too offensive. In the words of Cartman, “Screw you guys, I’m going home!”
And then there are the rest.
