I just got a PSP for Christmas. Anyone know if UMD movies have all the special features of regular DVDs?

oh really? i only looked at a few titles but for the ones i looked at, DDD doesn't list any special features. i'm assuming if the UMD had any, the description would list them right?

buddyrevell, can you name a few titles that you know of with special features?

Nightmare Before Christmas has a featurette, a half hour movie by Burton, deleted scenes, and a few trailers.

The ones that part of the sale are from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Only a few are in the original aspect ratio(The Replacement Killers and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure are 2.35:1 anamorphic).

The only UMD on sale that has special features is Stealth which has the movie and a special version of the Wipeout Pure game.

Off the top of my mind. I know Big Trouble in Little China has commentary by Russel and Carpenter and a music video. Tron has deleted scenes and storyboards.

I dont have too many.

I only have the Spiderman UMD that came with my PSP, but I had assumed that they were all the original aspect ratio, given that the PSP is widescreen. Do you mean that 2.35:1 movies are cut down to 1.85:1? Or what?

Yes, the crop them to fit the PSP screen (no black bars like a normal 16:9 screen)

As for Stealth w/WipeOut Pure. I think it includes a few levels of the game....nice idea. I still will not buy a UMD. I got one for $4, and sold it for $8

Yes, unfortunately, certain UMD movies (like Spidey 2) are cropped to fit the 1.78:1 screen when the OAR is 2.35:1. However, studios like Buena Vista preserves the OAR for movies like "Kill Bill" etc.

Of the UMDs I've watched and have seen the movie often enough to know the OAR, T2 and Spider-Man 2 crop to 1.78:1 and Pulp Fiction maintains OAR. Sin City's OAR is 1.78:1.

2.35 anamorphic material will have thin black bars on the top and bottom. Unfortunately, when stuff is transferred like this, the bars are part of the 1.78:1 image so zoom is not an option.

Same with 1.33:1 material which most of the time has bars as part of the 1.78 image. From what I have, only Paramount lets you zoom 1.33:1 stuff to fill the screen.

So far: Buena Vista Home Entertainment, New Line Home Entertainment, and Universal Home Entertainment have been consistent with OAR and special features. In fact, New Line & Universal are the only companies to launch with OAR PLUS special features on UMD AND stick to it through today.

Is there a list of TV Shows on UMD? I can't see myself ever buying movies for my PSP (I don't understand how one could watch a 2 hour flick on that tiny screen unless there were on a plane), but I could enjoy short 25-30 minute shows. Any chance to get Mr. Show on UMD? From what I understand they just released the entire first season of Family Guy on 5 UMDs in a box set? This true?

I'll be picking up a PSP this week, so this actually works out pretty well as I doubt I will be buying movies for it, other than a couple for the curiosity factor. Probably the Kill Bills (which have deleted scenes as extras) for sure, though I didn't see them on the DDD list.

To answer your first question- http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=4539




As for your second question, actually VOLUME 1 was just released, not just SEASON 1....Volume 1 consists of the COMPLETE first TWO seasons!!!!!!

Just a heads-up. This is also good at certain stores. I saw EBGames and GameStop had the same deal. However, most are over-priced there....but, if you want them NOW.

not too bad of a deal. I already have a large DVD collection, but am looking for a couple of movies to have just in case I am on a long flight or what not. I already have Dawn of the Dead (original) for UMD, looking to get a couple more Anchor Bay releases.
