Firstly, I would like finally thank Buena
Vista for finally releasing some extras on there discs. For too long they
have foisted featureless discs on us. I hope that this is the start of
some wonderful packages from Buena Vista.
For there first disc I have reviewed with
extras, Buena Vista have put together a wonderful package to complement
this movie beautifully.
Theatrical Trailer: A great
trailer that utilizes Vangelis' Conquest Of Paradise score. It is framed
at 2:35:1 with 16:9 enhancement and Dolby Digital 2.0 sound.
Audio Commentary - Hoyt Yeatman &
John Knoll (Visual Effects), Stephen H. Burum (Director Of Photography)
& Ed Verreaux (Production Design): This is a very informative and
descriptive commentary which would rank up there with the best
commentaries I have heard.
Documentary: This is a very good
20 minute documentary on the making of the movie, it is a lot more
informative than other documentaries available.
Visual Effects Analysis: This
section features 3 very short separate sections with audio commentary from
Yeatman & Knoll. They are The Vortex, Leaving The Ship, Evolution.
Pity they are not longer.
Animatics To Movie Comparison:
This section feature 2 scenes. First up you get the animatic version of
the Loosing Woody scene and then you get the final edited version featured
in the movie so you can see how a scene has evolved to it's final version.
There is also the same feature for The Planetarium section also.
Photo Gallery: You standard photo
gallery separated into sections, there are over 100 photos and they are of
Closed Captioned, Czech, Hungarian,
Dutch, Croatian, Slovenian, Bulgarian.
