What do you think of these new DVD releases? Is it worth paying extra for the two-disc edition of Master and Commander? And is it worth buying yet another edition of My Fair Lady?

Master and Commander is a brilliant naval jaunt. I own the two-disc version and the documentaries are a brilliant addition. The level of detail Peter Weir went to to get the "feeling" of the movie right, the worldwide search for faces for even the minor roles, the sound effects and also as far as purchasing "the rose", to the big replica of the ship in the tank. This gives an incredible insight into the film making process.
And to top all that, the film is incredible too, stick on the amp with the movies DTS soundtrack, get your widescreen TV / display and enjoy.

The double-disc edition of Master and Commander is
excellent. The documentaries are high quality and informative and unlike with many DVDs, the deleted scenes are well worth watching, expanding the background characters, particularly the Royal Marine captain and some of the younger officers.

Master and Commander is a great movie from an even better book. It is very well directed and great to see that films about those fierce battles on the sea can now be well made. See it. And I hope there are more to come from Patrick O'Brian's books. As for the second disc, like all films nowadays the making is always good to see but wait three months and get it cheaper.
