June 3, 2008 - Semi-Pro: 2-Disc Unrated Let's Get Sweaty Edition DVD Review

May 30, 2008 - Disney has informed retailers to expect DVD and Blu-ray release The Nightmare Before Christmas: 2-Disc Collector's Edition on August 26th.
List price is $32.99 for the DVD, $39.99 for Blu-ray. Cover art has been posted here.

A week later, on September 2nd, two new Playhouse Disney DVDs will be released. "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse": Mickey's Storybook Surprises (formerly titled Mickey's Wonderland) will hold four fairytale-flavored episodes including an unaired one. "My Friends Tigger & Pooh": Hundred Acre Wood will serve up 3 episodes of that CGI series -- including yet another Halloween with the gang -- plus a bonus "Handy Manny." Each compilation carries a $19.99 SRP.

May 28, 2008 - In our newest review, Aaron Wallace provides a fresh perspective on "Cory in the House": Newt & Improved Edition, the second compilation devoted to the Disney Channel sitcom.
In addition to an appraisal of the "That's So Raven" spin-off, there's a look at the disc's 4 episodes and behind-the-scenes featurette. Read the full review.

Take a look at all of this week's major new releases on our DVDizzy.com DVD, Blu-ray & HD DVD Schedule for May 27th. Offerings include independent films that missed audience radars in theaters and a host of TV season and volume sets.

May 23, 2008 - Aaron Wallace looks at this week's DVD debut of "The Muppet Show": Season Three. The 4-disc set serves up the next 24 episodes of the syndicated late-1970s variety series, with guest stars including Gilda Radner, Alice Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, and Big Bird. In addition to the more than ten hours of comedy and music the show provides, Disney's box includes the hour-long 1968 TV program "The Muppets on Puppets", new featurette "A Company of Players", and vintage dog food commercials starring Rowlf the dog. More...

May 22, 2008 - Will Ferrell returns to the 1970s and sports in Semi-Pro, a comedy set in the world of ABA basketball. Ferrell stars as owner/coach/player Jackie Moon, more a promoter than a power forward. His low-class team, the Flint Tropics, are forced to improve to survive a merger with the NBA. The large cast includes Woody Harrelson and Outkast's Andre Benjamin as teammates and a variety of familiar comedy actors, including Will Arnett, Andy Richter, and David Koechner in supporting roles. New Line's 2-Disc Unrated Let's Get Sweaty Edition offers both the foul-mouthed R-rated theatrical cut and an extended version that runs 7 minutes longer and adds a character. Extras include deleted/alternate scenes, unused improvisations, six featurettes, a music video, trailers, and a digital copy. Read the full review.

May 20, 2008 - Our latest DVD review looks at Minutemen. This 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie tells of three high school outcasts who invent a time machine and use it to help out their fellow bullied students. The disappointingly routine and shoddy production stars Jason Dolley ("Cory in the House"), Luke Benward (How to Eat Fried Worms) Nicholas Braun (Sky High), Chelsea Staub (Bratz), and J.P. Manoux ("Phil of the Future").
Per frustrating tradition, Disney's DVD supplies a fullscreen feature presentation. In the way of bonus features, there is a music video by High School Musical's Corbin Bleu and a making-of featurette hosted by the movie's three young leads. Read on...

Check out our guide to all of today's new releases on our DVDizzy.com DVD, Blu-ray & HD DVD Schedule for May 20th. High-def buyers may take special note of the National Treasure: 2-Movie Blu-ray set that is tearing up Amazon.com's sales charts with its low price.

May 19, 2008 - We've updated our Upcoming Disney DVD Schedule with information on all this year's announced DVD and Blu-ray releases plus new dates through the middle of 2009. Check it out!

May 17, 2008 - Today, we review Strange Wilderness, which comes to DVD on Tuesday. This R-rated, Adam Sandler-produced comedy stars Steve Zahn, Jonah Hill, Justin Long, and Ernest Borgnine as part of a ragtag team of wildlife documentarians. Driven much more by drug humor and lowbrow gags than plot, the inane film falls flat again and again, which helps explain why it took two years to reach theaters.
Paramount equips the box office dud with material that often surpasses the feature in entertainment value: 3 set featurettes, Comedy Central's "Reel Comedy" special, and 22 minutes of deleted scenes. Full review.

May 15, 2008 - Our newest review looks at next week's 2-Disc Collector's Edition DVD of Disney's hit sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets. After his ancestor is implicated in Abraham Lincoln's assassination, Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) seeks to clear his family's name, setting him on a hunt for a fabled City of Gold that takes him to Paris, London, and several locations in the US. The returning cast and crew are joined by decorated actors Ed Harris and Helen Mirren in this outlandish yet entertaining follow-up adventure. The premium version adds 80 minutes of video -- deleted scenes, outtakes, and 8 featurettes -- to the standard disc's audio commentary. More...

Visitors to this site have probably sent more e-mail inquiring about the 1989 made-for-TV movie Polly and its 1990 sequel Polly: Comin' Home than anything else in Disney's catalog.

Musical adaptations of Pollyanna starring Keshia Knight Pulliam as Polly and her "Cosby Show" mom Phylicia Rashad as Aunt Polly, both were recently released to DVD. But you can't buy them in stores and online you can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $45-$75 (Polly, Comin' Home). Why? Because the two made their way to DVD in the same way that most live-action Disney fare has in the past few years, as Disney Movie Club exclusives. Existing members can buy the titles for $19.95 each plus shipping. Non-members can now enroll in the club with a 3 movies for $1.99 each deal .

Recent Disney DVD Reviews:
• Saludos Amigos & The Three Caballeros: Classic Caballeros Collection - Disney's first two anthology films of the 1940s incorporate Latin American culture into a number of animated and live-action sequences, with appearances by Walt Disney, his staff, Donald Duck, Goofy, and newly-unveiled personalities Joe Carioca and Panchito. The low-priced double featured disc includes a vintage half-hour travelogue film, a short but relevant Walt Disney interview excerpt, and two bonus Donald cartoons.

Recent Non-Disney DVD Reviews:
• Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - The 1989 blockbuster strikes a perfect balance of humor and adventure while entertaining us with Indy's search for the Holy Grail and his estranged father (Sean Connery). Like its predecessors, Crusade looks and sounds similar to its 2003 DVD, but delivers all-new extras, including 3 featurettes, storyboards, and galleries.
• Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - Sneakily a prequel, this 1984 installment is rightfully considered this weakest in the original trilogy. It takes Dr. Jones to Shanghai and then India, as he seeks to reclaim a village's sacred stone with help from a Chinese boy and whiny lounge singer. The disc supplies about a half-hour of video supplements (most with optional pop-up trivia) plus four extensive art galleries.
• Raiders of the Lost Ark: Indiana Jones - The Adventure Collection - The first and most esteemed film in Steven Spielberg and George Lucas' adventure series stars Harrison Ford as an archaeologist who defies death around the globe to protect artifacts. Though deemed a Special Edition, the disc sets a modest pattern for sequels to follow, with a half-hour of all-new bonus features supplanting those found on the trilogy's 2003 DVD box set.
• Over Her Dead Body - "Desperate Housewives"' Eva Longoria Parker plays a woman who dies just before her wedding and, as a ghost, proceeds to haunt her fiancι's psychic and blossoming love interest. Paul Rudd, Lake Bell, Lindsay Sloane, and Jason Biggs co-star in this PG-13-rated supernatural romantic comedy.
• The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - Acclaimed French-language drama tells the incredible true story of a man who suddenly becomes paralyzed head to toe and can only communicate by blinking his good eye. We join him on his struggle to recovery, sharing hsi perspective and a mind active with flashbacks and fantasies. Miramax's disc provides two featurettes, PBS host Charlie Rose's 20-minute interview of director Julian Schnabel, and an audio commentary.
