Looks like Universal has dropped all extras from this release. Only thing present is U-Control, Commentary and My Scenes. I'll pop my copy in later to see if the "missing" features are present during U-Control...but it would suck to lose the Deleted scenes and Alternate ending.

Originally it was announced with (along with the DVD)
Extras will include: "Audio Commentary with writer/director Michael McCullers and actors Tina Fey and Amy Poehler,"
"From Conception to Delivery: The Making of Baby Mama," a "Saturday Night Live: Legacy of Laughter" featurette, "Deleted Scenes," and an "Alternate Ending."

So many movies coming out from now until the end of the year. Right now my most anticipated is Wall E since I haven't seen it and I know how good Pixar looks on the Blu combined with the praise the movie itself got.

Gizmo, bolding something is [ b ] and [ / b ] tags, not that HTML stuff you were tossing out there. ;)

Trust me when I say this that Wall-E is just an amazing film. You won't be let down.

New sig coming soon.

Postal seems to be online only for now. I haven't seen it anywhere. I've been told by a few different retail stores that they'll get it in on September 9th.

I only picked up Nightmare Before Christmas and What Happens In Vegas this week, bringing my count up to a measly 51. I also picked up Sum of All Fears this past week for $12 used.Like I've said before, having a mom and pop shop that price all new BR movies at $19.99 doesn't help the situation.. there's a lot of impulse buys. I still have quite a few sealed BR movies (Cruel Intentions, Dark City, Narnia, Natural Born Killers, Jumper, Disturbia)

Next week.. TRANSFORMERS!

So there's a 2 disc and a 3 disc Wall-E?

Edit: Ok, so apparently the DVD is 3 disc and the BR is 2 disc? Amazon is confusing me because I think they are mixing the two up in their pre-order descriptions.

The 2 disc is $24.95 and the 3 disc is $27.95 right now. I was tempted to order the $24.95 one, but the $27.95 one falls more in line with their new BR release prices.

IIRC there is are four total versions of Wall-E coming out, 2 BDs and 2 DVDs.

From The Digital Bits

[FONT=arial, helvetica, courier, *]There will be a single-disc DVD (SRP $29.99), a 3-Disc Special Edition DVD (SRP $39.99), a 2-Disc Blu-ray edition (SRP $35.99) and a 3-Disc Blu-ray Edition (SRP $40.99). The single-disc DVD will include the Presto animated short, the all new Burn-E animated short, audio commentary with director Andrew Stanton, deleted scenes, the Animation Sound Design: Building Worlds from the Sound Up featurette with Ben Burtt and the Sneak Peek: WALL-E's Tour of the Universe featurette. To this, the 3-Disc Special Edition DVD will add additional deleted scenes, 3 featurettes (The Pixar Story by Leslie Iwerks, BnL Shorts and Wall-E's Treasures and Trinkets), the Lots of Bots storybook, additional "making of" featurettes, Bot Files and a Disney File (Digital Copy) version of the film. The 2-Disc Blu-ray edition will include all of the above (minus the Digital Copy) and will add a Geek Track viewing option, the Cine-Explore with Andrew Stanton feature, PiP enhancement of Burn-E with storyboards, and an Axiom Arcade suite of "retro style videogames with a twist." The 3-Disc Blu-ray will have all that and also include a Disney File (Digital Copy) version of the film[/FONT]

Haven't seen Wall-E yet but I'm interested in it if the price is right (I'm such a cheap bastid!)

as for the latest release list I want Outbreak. Loaned my DVD copy to friends and... like most DVD/CD loans, they never came back. Robotech is tempting for that nostalgia-ness :applause:

I was able to get a copy at Best Buy and possibly the only copy the store purchased.

Just got the official press release from Disney about the Platinum BD releases...

Pinocchio, the beloved story of a wooden puppet who wants to become a real boy, comes to Platinum Edition DVD and Disney Blu-ray in spring 2009. Disney's second full-length animated movie, Pinocchio won two Oscars®, one for Best Score and another for the unforgettable song "When You Wish upon a Star.” It returns for the first time since 2002.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, honored with a special Academy Award® for screen innovation this movie has been unavailable since 2001. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Platinum Edition will be released in the fall of 2009.

Walt Disney’s experimental masterpiece Fantasia won two honorary Oscars for its innovative use of animation and music. Most recently released in 2000, the restored and remastered Fantasia Platinum Edition will be available in 2010. Alongside this release, a newly restored and remastered Fantasia 2000 Platinum Edition, will be available. Fantasia 2000 begins where its predecessor, Fantasia, left off, with seven completely new segments and the return of the popular “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, featuring breathtaking images coupled with classical music favorites.

In conjunction with these releases, Destino, the unfinished animated feature film created by Walt Disney and famed surrealist painter Salvador Dali will release. Begun in 1946, it was rediscovered in 2003 and completed by Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney. The collaboration between these two legendary artists will be available to own for the first time along with an all-new feature-length documentary that examines the surprising partnership between Dali and Disney.

Beauty and the Beast, the only animated film ever nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Picture, earned a breathtaking six Academy Award® nominations and won two Oscars®. Beauty in the Beast Platinum Edition will be available in fall 2010.

Has there been any talk of a double dip on Hoosiers? I was looking at the first and the extras had the trailer...that's it. None of the extras from the CE DVD. It's been a year and a half since the BD release and I'm hoping for a real one that has the extras on it.

No way I am double-dibbing on that one. I was so disappointed by it. Huge Superman fan, and the Death/Return storyline was what got me into comics, but damn, that movie stunk up the joint.

Cartoon Network had it on a few weeks back and I Tivo'd it. Glad I didn't buy it, 'cause it was on the bad side, yes.

Indeed. I understand it would be quite difficult for them to jam the entire Death and Return story into one movie, but they didn't even try. The most disappointing thing about it was the fight with Doomsday. It was over before it started. The only thing redeeming about the whole purchase was the featurette about the development of the Death of Superman. That was good. The movie was awful.

I'll be selling my PS3 soon, but holding onto most of my Blu-rays.

Think I should look into a cheap player, or wait and see if the next xbox has blu support?

Its not a matter of whether Microsoft wants 360 Blu Ray, its whether Sony would want them to have it. With the best selling Blu Ray player (and worst selling console oddly enough) being the PS3 they wouldn't want to shoot themselves in the foot on letting Microsoft put Blu Ray in the 360, they'd simply lose too many PS3 sales.

I think he was talking about the next Xbox console, not a 360 with a Blu-ray drive. Also, Sony isn't the only ones with a voice in Blu-ray.
