This Week In Home Entertainment: Wreck-It Ralph And Schindler's List 20th Anniversary
Schindler’s List 20th Anniversary Limited Edition
Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List was critically acclaimed at the time of its release, earning a best picture win and 6 other Academy Awards, among a slew of other accolades. Twenty years later, the black and white frames of the film are often stunning and, in other moments, nothing short of horrifying. The true story of Oskar Schindler has been memorialized in a riveting picture that looks like it will live on through the ages.
There’s also been no better time to buy a copy of Schindler’s List. Not that the film ever looked bad, but for the 20th anniversary release, Spielberg actually sat down and supervised the film’s transition from the original 35 mm film negative to High Definition. Whatever the size of the television, the picture should be riveting.
Best Special Feature: The bonus features for the set are some of the same as those that came with earlier Schindler’s List releases, most notably the 2004 Collector’s Gift Set for the film. Both of the bonus features have historical value and are a nice watch, but annoyingly, the extras are only available on the DVD copy of the film (which is split between discs, old-school style) and are pretty frustrating in an otherwise-nice Blu-ray release. Since Spielberg was so invested in the restoration process, it would have been nice to see an extra looking into the process or other new extras, as well.
