DVD highlights for the month:
- Live Free or Die Hard (Unrated Edition) - the full R-rated version, yippee-ki-yay!
- The Jason Bourne Collection (The Bourne Identity/ The Bourne Supremacy/ The Bourne Ultimatum)
- Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition) - the final, final, FINAL director's cut plus other not-so final versions in one package!
- Ocean's Thirteen (Widescreen Edition)
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) - just for that awesome wizards fight scene!
- The Simpsons Movie (Widescreen Edition)
- James Bond Ultimate Collector's Set - from Dr. No to the new Casino Royale with Daniel Craig, sans the old Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again. Older Bonds' video are remastered, while a bonus disc is included for each movie. Gotta catch 'em all!
- The X-Files: The Ultimate Collection - cost-effective if you want to own the entire series and leave no stone unturned!
- Star Trek: The Next Generation - Complete Series - to boldly buy what no jock has bought before!
Big winners for these omissions include drug-themed thriller Protege, now getting nods for Best Director and Original Screenplay, while The Sun Also Rises director Kiang Wen and Kidnap star Rene Liu were added into the Best Director and Actress categories respectively.
Apparently, some guy is trying his luck to squeeze US$5 mil out of Microsoft's cash cow by suing Bill and co. and even the guys who put Master Chief together for making his console "crash, freeze or lock up".
