The DVD and Blu-Ray releases this week are a trio of films that could not be more different. Harold and Kumar give their take on a Christmas story in A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas, Shakespeare's writings are questioned in Anonymous and Disney opens the vault for the Blu-Ray release of a classic Lady and the Tramp.
Lady and the Tramp: Disney’s classic tale of canines in love lands on Blu-Ray for a limited time. The Lady and the Tramp Diamond Edition is a must own for any Disney fan or for anyone who enjoys animated family films. As this title is from the Disney vault, it will only be available for a limited time. The Blu-Ray extras that shine include Inside Walt’s Story Meetings, Diane Disney Miller remembers her dad, three never-before-seen deleted scenes and a new song that was not recorded for the film, I’m Free as the Breeze.
A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas: John Cho and Kal Penn are back at it as Harold and Kumar as the duo give us their take on a Christmas tale. Given that this is Harold and Kumar, you know the high hijinx will be off the charts. Movie Fanatic received the Extra Dope Edition Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack and relished in the six minutes of extra footage in the film. Our exclusive interview subject Tom Lennon gets a showcase in a feature on the Blu-Ray entitled Through the Haze with Tom Lennon. The famous Claymation scene from the film, one of its absolute highlights, is explored in the bonus feature Bringing Harold & Kumar Claymation to Life. Of course, who steals the show? Neil Patrick Harris is back as himself. In honor of that fact, Warner Bros. Home Video is featuring a Neil Patrick Harris Appreciation Day. Head to Twitter and check out #ILOVENPH and let them know why you like him so much and how, you think, he makes the Harold and Kumar films great.
Anonymous: What if Shakespeare did not write all those terrific works? That is the question posed by director Roland Emmerich in his political thriller Anonymous. In the film, the works are actually composed by an earl who uses Shakespeare as the face and name of the plays and sonnets because writing was deemed below a royal. See the film and decide for yourself whether you believe what Emmerich is presenting! The film’s extras are small, but are highlighted by a commentary by Emmerich and screenwriter John Orloff (check out our exclusive interview) and a feature called Who is the real William Shakespeare?
