from thedigitalbits

Speaking of Paramount, we have word on more new DVDs from the studio. The Gunsmoke Movie Collection (Return to Dodge, The Last Apache and To the Last Man) will street on 5/11. Star Trek Voyager: Season Two will appear on May 18th (including 26 episodes, Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and 8 featurettes). Back to the Beach, Funny About Love and Summer School are on the way on June 1st. A 6-disc The Winds of War release will street on May 25th (which is shaping up to be a HUGELY expensive day for DVD releases). And John Woo's Paycheck will arrive on May 18th, including audio commentary with Woo and screenwriter Dean Georgaris



finally

Summer school is deserving of a special edition as that film has achieved a cult status since its release.

A commentary would have been nice with some of the actors, catching up on old times with their fellow class mates. Or a retrospective documentary.

But no, paramount has to go and suck ass again.



At least it's coming, I guess.

Just because Digital Bits didn't mention any extras, that doesn't mean there won't be any. I mean, there probably won't be, but maybe we'll get lucky. On the bright side, with Paramount releasing it, we're pretty much guaranteed it won't be fullscreen. I shudder to think what Columbia Tri-Star or MGM may have done to it.

Looking forward to Summer School!!! Slowly but surely...my VHS tapes are becoming obsolete as movies from yesteryear are finally seeing the light of day on the dvd format.

Your upbeat demeanor is going to make me puke!

Come on, there isn't going to be any extras. I am almost positive of it. I mean If paramount didn't bother to come up with extras for great films like the tenant, atlantic city, breakfast at tiffanys and so on i'm sure they really don't care about teen comedies like summer school and better off dead. I will agree the other studios may have screwed it up an unforgivable full screen transfer. At least paramount has a decent transfer/widescreen on all their films policy.

Regarding the lack of extras, it is a missed opportunity. Paramount is generally pretty good at that.

As per DVDfile...

Summer School, starring Mark Harmon. Each is newly remastered in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1, and feature no extras. Retail will set you back $14.95 a pop.
