DVD Pick of the Week.

I am going to do something a little bit different this week. I will not be choosing a traditional DVD as pick of the week. Rather, this weeks pick is a soundtrack which comes with a bonus DVD.

This week's pick is the soundtrack for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. It is for a film which I am anxiously looking forward to coming out later this month. The CD comes with a DVD featuring video, dialog, and music from all six of the films. It also features narration from Ian McDiarmid, aka Senator Palpatine, aka The Emperor.

I have read that it is presented in anamorphic widescreen and has both Dolby Digital 5.1 and PCM stereo sound. It reportedly has a running time in the vicinity of 70 minutes. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

Here are some others to keep an eye out for:
  • The Chorus. French film, I have heard this is good, but have not had much interest.
  • Enduring Love. I missed this in the theater, but it looks interesting. A tale of two guys who have a strange bond after witnessing a death.
  • Gantz: Terminal Dispatch Vol. 4. A rather twisted anime series.
  • Jeff Healey Band: Live at Montreaux (1999). I haven't listened to him for awhile, but he is an amazing guitar player.
  • Microcosmos. A documentary about insects, I have wanted to see this for awhile.
  • National Treasure. Decent little adventure flick. Nothing to write home about.
  • The Phantom of the Opera. Not perfect, but still enjoyable and sporting some fabulous set design and a scene stealing performance from Emmy Rossum.
  • Pocahontas: 10th Anniversary Edition. I've never seen this, and cannot say I have ever been interested in it, but I have read some good things about it.
  • Spaceballs: Collector's Edition. Ludicrous Speed! How can anyone not love this movie? Just in times for the last Star Wars film.
  • Star Trek: Enterprise - Complete First Season. As the final season draws to a close, the first season comes to DVD. The first season was pretty good, but the only one I am interested in is the fourth.
  • Vampires: Turning. The second sequel to John Carpenter's Vampires. Not sure if it will be any good, but may be worth checking out.

That's it! I hope you like it.
