    Any news about a DVD release of "Schindler's List". I remember the first of the year the rumour was that it would be released by the end of the year.
    I'd love a 16x9 Anamorphic video with Dolby/DTS 5.1 Sound.

    Schindler's List will not be released this year.
    And I am glad I tell you, there are enough discs coming out
    this year.
    The last thing I heard it was coming Q1 2002.
    I now have the dts laserdisc of this movie and I hope by the
    time the dvd comes it will also feature dts which will be most likely because it's Spielberg.

    I have to admit, I too am glad it won't be out this year...I've estimated I'll spend about $350 between now and mid October...and many of November and December releases haven't been announced yet, ugh!

    Looks to me like there's been about two spielberg titles a year being released. This year is CE3K and Empire of the Sun (yay!), let's hope next year is Schindler's List and E.T. [​IMG]

    Spielberg's been averaging 2 a year with regard to his directed titles (if you lump JP and LW together). With E.T. almost a definite for next year the only other one I can think of his major back catalogue titles is Schindler's List (since A.I. is a new release I don't think it counts in the 2 a year theory).
    However I remember reading once he was waiting for a proper time to release Schindler's since it's so dear to his heart.

    I wonder what will become of the 'Indiana Jones' films on DVD? Will they have DD only to please Lucas? Or will they include DTS to appease Speilberg?

    Hmm......I only consider the ones he directed to be "Spielberg" titles......he's produced too many to count! Also, I'd be willing to bet that Indy will have DTS. Spielberg is the director of the films, and the director usually has the greatest power, certainly more than a writer even if it be someone like George Lucas (Spielberg's films have also grossed more at the box office).

    Just to pick a knit...
    Jurassic Park III was not a Steven Spielberg film. It was directed by Joe Johnston. (And it showed.)
    Men in Black was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.
    The Goonies was directed by Richard Donner.
    Although Steven Spielberg was executive producer on all of these hits, you can't possibly classify them as "Steven Spielberg films" along with the likes of Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
    The bottom line is, we have a lot less "Steven Spielberg films" on DVD than you think.
