APRIL 16-30, 2009: NEWS ARCHIVES


Keep track of our latest articles with our RSS Feed. Add to: Google, My Yahoo, My AOL

April 29, 2009 - Our latest DVD review takes a look at The Uninvited, another American remake of an Asian horror film. Keeping gore and the supernatural to a minimum, this PG-13 movie tells the story of two teenaged girls (Emily Browning, Arielle Kebbel)
who begin to suspect their father's new lover (Elizabeth Banks) was responsible for their mother's death. Now available, DreamWorks' disc includes a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, and an alternate ending. Read on...

April 28, 2009 - In previews found on next week's DVDs, Disney has announced a (slightly premature) 10th Anniversary Special Edition for The Tigger Movie which will include a digital copy of the movie.

The Uninvited (2009) DVD Review

Check out the final week of April's new DVDs and Blu-ray's with our DVDizzy.com Guide to April 28th Releases.

April 24, 2009 - Proving to be less of a big screen event than hoped, The Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience has left theaters and will come to DVD and Blu-ray on June 30th in a number of different versions. The "3D" of the title will be exclusive to the 3-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo ($44.99 SRP), which serves up an extended cut of the film in 2D and 3D, 2 bonus songs, and behind-the-scenes featurette "Up Close with the Jonas Brothers" (Discs 2 and 3 being the extended edition DVD and digital copy, respectively).
On standard DVD, customers can choose between a barebones theatrical cut disc ($29.99 SRP) or the Extended Edition ($39.99 SRP) that supplies the same bonus features as the Blu-ray (minus the 3D version and glasses) plus digital copy. There may also prove to be a single-disc Blu-ray edition, but that's not yet confirmed. All versions will present the film in 1.85:1 widescreen.

Hitting stores alongside the Jonases is Princess Protection Program, the new Disney Channel original movie that stars Selena Gomez of "Wizards of Waverly Place" and Camp Rock's Demi Lovato. Reaching DVD just four days after its cable debut, the movie will arrive in a "Royal B.F.F. Extended Edition" ($29.99 SRP) with Gomez and Lovato's "One and the Same" music video and the featurettes "Royal & Loyal BFFs" and "A Royal Reality." In addition, for a limited time only, the DVD will contain a "Best Friends" necklace set on-pack. The Blu-ray version earlier advertised has apparently been scrapped, but in a welcome break from tradition, the feature presentation will be 1.78:1 widescreen. Preorder from Amazon.com.

April 23, 2009 - Our newest DVD review looks at The Looney, Looney, Looney Bugs Bunny Movie. Released in 1981, this was Warner Bros.' second feature film to compile classic Looney Tunes cartoons together. Showcasing over a dozen shorts from the '40s, '50s, and '60s plus Friz Freleng-directed bridging content, this anthology piece makes its DVD debut next week along with three 1990s shorts not previously available on disc. Read our full review.

April 22, 2009 - Disney marks Earth Day with the long-anticipated launch of the Disneynature banner by releasing Earth to nearly 2,000 North American theaters today. Christopher Disher gives us a brief review of the film, which reuses footage from the BBC's award-winning television series "Planet Earth" with new narration by James Earl Jones. Read on.

April 21, 2009 - Today brings Academy Award nominees, brand new 2009 movies, and TV box sets from the '70s, '80s, and '90s to DVD. Check out our DVDizzy.com April 21st Schedule for a full overview of the week's new releases.

April 16, 2009 - Our Classic Live Action Disney Movies page has been updated to reflect Disney Movie Club and quiet retail debuts, comparable editions of some all-time favorites, price drops, anticipated re-releases, and more. Click here to view it.

April 15, 2009 - We've updated our Disney DVDs Schedule with information on Santa Buddies.
Get 4 Disney Movies for $1.99 Each, Free Shipping!
The 9th Air Bud movie and 4th since the series turned to talking puppies, this one will reach stores on November 24th in no fewer than four different versions. In other fall Disney DVD news, the 7-disc Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy box set is now scheduled for release on September 29th. No word yet on what it will offer, but with a $100 list price, it better be a lot of special stuff.

Disney has planned one additional angle to its Public Needs Blu-ray operation. Besides streeting seven weeks ahead of the two-disc Platinum Edition DVD, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' 2 Blu-ray discs, 1 standard DVD Combo will arrive on October 6th in separate packaging, one posing as a DVD + Blu-ray Combo, the other as a Blu-ray + DVD Combo. Never mind that the price and disc composition will be the same; the studio must assume that those buying won't even notice or care they're missing the second disc of the DVD, which will only show up November 24th.

In less depressing news, Disney plans to offer three premium editions of Snow White, each centering on the Blu-ray/DVD combo. Details are sparse thus far, but you'll be able to get Walt's first animated feature in a 7 Dwarf Plush Pack ($79.99 SRP), in a Collector's Set with Book ($59.99 SRP), or in a Limited Edition Box Set ($249.99) housing at least a book, pins, lithographs, and some fancy packaging. We've added a tentative packaging shot to our Upcoming DVD Cover Art page.

April 9, 2009 - Believe it or not, it's been five years since our countdown of The Top 100 Disney Songs. That's enough time for albums to go out-of-print, DVDs to get upgraded, and links to become outdated. Since this is one of the most popular features on UltimateDisney.com, we went back and brought the countdown up to date. Now, you can listen to songs and download them for less than a dollar (DRM-free!) through Amazon.com MP3 or pick up complete soundtracks featuring the chosen works. All links to relevant articles and reviews have been verified and updated. What better time than now to revisit -- or discover -- what site readers picked as the very best of Disney music. Check it: Disney Songs Countdown.

Recent Disney DVD Reviews:
Walt Disney Animation Collection: Classic Short Films, Volume 3: The Prince & The Pauper - Mickey Mouse pulls double duty as both of Mark Twain's title characters in the half-hour 1990 cartoon, which is joined by four Medieval-themed single-reel shorts from the 1930s and '40s.
My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Tigger & Pooh and a Musical Too - This hour-long movie maintains the stylings of the computer-animated Playhouse Disney series while upping the ambition and delivering seven original songs. The DVD includes a number of repeat value-enhancing playback modes, a thinking game with Rabbit, and a Kenny Loggins music video.
"Bunnytown": Hello Bunnies! - This UK-produced Playhouse Disney variety puppet series shuns didacticism and narrative in favor of music and comedy bits involving -- what else? -- a host of colorful bunny rabbits.
Walt Disney Animation Collection: Classic Short Films, Volume 2 - Three Little Pigs - This holds not only the hit 1933 Silly Symphony, but two of its sequels and four other animal comedy shorts.
Walt Disney Animation Collection: Classic Short Films, Volume 1 - Mickey and the Beanstalk - This launches a new cartoon line with the Ludwig von Drake version of the half-hour Fun and Fancy Free plus four other Mickey Mouse shorts from the 1930s and '40s.
Bedtime Stories - Adam Sandler stars as a goofy hotel handyman surprised to discover aspects of his nightly tales to his sister's kids actually occurring. This PG-rated comedy fantasy co-stars Keri Russell, Russell Brand, and Guy Pearce. Disney's Deluxe Edition DVD serves up outtakes, twelve deleted scenes, a few short featurettes (including a new Dylan and Cole Sprouse infomercial for Blu-ray), and a digital copy.

Recent Non-Disney DVD and Blu-ray Reviews:
The Spirit - Sin City and 300 creator Frank Miller adapts Will Eisner's beloved comic strip series into a heavily-stylized PG-13 action flick starring Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, and others. Lionsgate's 2-Disc Special Edition includes an audio commentary and video interview with Miller, an alternate ending, a making-of featurette, a digital copy, and the trailer.
No Country for Old Men: 3-Disc Collector's Edition - The Coen Brothers' Oscar-winning thriller supplies three distinct perspectives to a crime story involving a money-filled satchel recovered near the Texas/Mexico border. Miramax's new set retains everything from the original disc and adds over five hours of new bonus features plus a digital copy and a mail-in rebate offer for repeat buyers.
Yes Man - Jim Carrey returns to what he's best known for in this comedy about a banker who agrees to say "yes" to every opportunity that comes his way, including a quirky Zooey Deschanel love interest. Warner's 2-Disc Special Edition includes 40 minutes of video bonus features and a digital copy.
Doubt - John Patrick Shanley's adaptation of his 2004 play stars Meryl Streep as Sr. Aloysius, a Catholic school nun/principal who suspects the pastor priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) of having an inappropriate relationship with an altar boy. Streep, Hoffman, and castmates Amy Adams and Viola Davis all received Oscar nominations, as did Shanley's script. The disc includes a commentary by Shanley and four featurettes.
