Lost In Space
This New Line Platinum Series DVD is an education in special effects and an homage to Lost in Space. Besides an awesome DVD transfer with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, the film is loaded with as many extras as other top DVDs, such as the Terminator 2: Judgment Day Ultimate Edition. There are two separate audio commentaries on the disc, one by director Stephen Hopkins and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, the other by the film's technical crew that includes the cinematographer, editor, visual effects supervisor, and producer. There are also two making-of featurettes, one on the special effects, with action sequences laid out in computer model form, and the other discussing the future of the planet from an environmental viewpoint. Included on this disc is a synopsis of every single episode of the television show, as well as new interviews with the original cast. Check out nine annotated deleted scenes, a theatrical trailer, production designs, cast and crew bios, and a music video by Apollo 440. Finally, with DVD-ROM capabilities, viewers can use PC-friendly software to access the screenplay, trivia games, and much more. The film may have disappointed the diehard fans, but the DVD won't.
