Just curious. I'd really like to get this dvd.
As for features, I somehow doubt it will have anything except a trailer.Actually, Disney's catalogue releases have been even so horrendous to not even include original trailers. Even discs with just a trailer and some production notes are considered "barebones" these days, but these discs LITERALLY do not have a single special feature. Let's just hope it's in widescreen, since many of these catalogue releases are also P&S-only and several of those September 3 $9.99 SRP are just that -- barebones and P&S.
Care to elaborate on which titles are going to be P&S only on September 3?Only ones I know for certain at this point are the 4 Ernest movies coming out that day, and I'd suspect a number of those other $9.99 SRP will get the P&S-barebones treatment.
Here's the complete list of BV titles coming out that day with $9.99 SRP:
Baby: Secret Of The Lost Legend
Ernest Goes to Camp
Ernest Goes to Jail
Ernest Saves Christmas
Ernest Scared Stupid
First Do No Harm
My Boyfriend's Back
The Pupper Masters
The War At Home
Don't know as to which will be P&S and which will be OAR, but expect to be disappointed on many of these titles.
I thought in the discussion with one of the Disney guys at Digital Bits (and correct me if I'm wrong), they said that, of the films being released on 9/3, only the films they considered family titles would be released P&S.They might have said that but these "family" films have also been released exclusively in P&S in the past two months:
The Scarlet Letter (R, 1995-Demi Moore)
Taking Care of Business (R)
Krippendorf's Tribe (PG-13)
It's certainly not that any film that clearly could not be labeled "family film" escapes the P&S radar. And there doesn't seem much method to Disney's madness.
I hope those 9/3 titles are OAR, but I fear they will not be. Titles which were widescreen on laserdisc are more likely to be widescreen on DVD, though obviously that is not always true (Scarlet Letter, Muppet Treasure Island).
