Overview

The first two Austin Powers' DVDs were New Line "platinum editions," but the latest, Austin Powers In Goldmember is the first to be part of their "Infinifilm" family. They sure can pack a lot on a single disc. As with other titles in that series, this one has a slew of supplements, which can be accessed by normal menu functions, or through the Infinifilm notices that pop up onscreen as you watch the movie. What you will find are numerous featurettes on the effects, behind-the-scenes looks at the production, interviews with the cast and crew, and much more. In addition are around 25 minutes of deleted scenes and a gag real. Though not all of them work, this segment adds even more laughs not found in the film. Not to be left out are four music videos from the likes of Britney Spears and Beyonce Knowles, theatrical teasers and trailer plus some nice DVD-ROM content. Of course, as with the other Austin Powers discs, this one includes a screen-specific audio commentary with director Jay Roach and Mike Myers. If that weren't enough, this disc also features a "fact track" with all kinds of interesting notes that run along with the movie. As for picture and sound, it is stellar in all respects. The image, framed at 2.35:1, and anamorphic, is brilliant. A pan-and-scan version is available separately, but with it being so severely cropped, there is little point to it. Colors, a real integral element of this film, are vibrant and full of life. Detail is also strong, but then again, nothing less would have been acceptable. Simply put, this is as good a transfer, as you will find. The sound matches the visuals in every way. Both DTS and Dolby Digital English tracks are provided, and it's quite surprising that a comedy would have such an active soundtrack. Dialogue is distinct, while at the same time, the surrounds are used very effectively with excellent separation. Of particular interest is the bass, which is quite powerful at selected times.
