The secret is out -- 'Harry Potter' sequel to be released on DVD and video in April [AP/SignOnSanDiego via Medley via Marshmallows & Bile]
Among the extra features on the two-disc DVD are 19 scenes with deleted material, tours of sets from the film and an exclusive interview [with Rowling].Some thoughts:
Some DVDs do let you view the movie with the deleted scenes inserted where they belong. The DVD for "Me, Myself & Irene" does this. In setup you would select the option to include deleted scenes. Then you see a notice on the screen that you were going to a deleted scene, and another notice as you went back to the regular movie. I like the feature. It definitely helps put things in context, which you don't always get when watching the scene by itself.
Hey, cool. I never saw that one. Wonder why the feature hasn't gotten more publicity.
I did quick search, and the feature they use to do this is called Extended Branching. If you do a search on that phrase and DVD, you'll find quite a few that use it.
Clearly I haven't watched enough DVDs!
I noticed recently that my local Blockbuster (in Sydney, Australia) had cleared another rack of shelves (previously allocated to VHS) for DVDs. I asked one of the employees about it and she said that they're actually looking to completely phase out VHS tapes in the next couple years. Granted, that was just a teenage peon in an international arm of the franchise, but it makes me think that the switchover will happen sooner than we expect. (And I, for one, welcome our new DVD-only overlords.) :)
i think thats cool tooAdd a comment...
