Monsters, Inc. looks like a great DVD. Pixar always delivers. The one thing that people are probably going to start pissing and moaning about, though, is going to be no DTS. "NO DTS = NO BUY" they'll say. boo-hoo.

Dear GOD! Look how many extras!

Pixar just keeps having to outdo themselves don't they? I'll be buying PH because A-I like Michael Bay, and B-the supplements are worth the price of admission

I'm definitely getting Monsters Inc. the day it's released. I won't be getting Pearl Harbor unless I need an extra boat anchor.

I did not see this in the Theater, but since it is a Pixar release, it is a definite purchase.

September is a long wait, but it should be worth it!

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

Both of those releases sound fantastic!!

Here's another interesting tidbit from the linked article:
there'll be a 3 disk version of "Beauty and the Beast" on October 8th
Hopefully 3 discs means one of them will contain the workprint version that was previously released on laser.

Edit: Oops!! Much more info on this here .

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:


* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Good thing about Monsters Inc: NO standard edition release. Just the 2-disc Collector's Edition and $29.99 SRP! Posted Image Disney's CEs just got better, and now at THAT PRICE they're without a doubt better than any other studio's 2-disc sets. Posted Image Can't wait to own both Monsters Inc and Beauty and the Beast 2-disc sets!

That pic is old, old news I'm afraid. For one thing, there's only three discs in the photo, when there should be four!
