One of the most eagerly awaited DVD release will finally hit the shelves next week. Schindler's list, in my opinion, is one of the best movies to ever have been made, and certainly Spielberg's best.

The DVD itself is double-sided due to the length of the movie (in certain countries, it is a double disc set), and features, from all reviews, sensational picture and sound (DTS track available). One interesting trivia with the soundtrack was the use of a certain sub-20Hz tone, that apparently induces fear in human beings. In the original theatrical release, this tone was encoded into the sountrack in a few scenes, and it would be interesting to see if the DVD soundtrack also features the tone (although few would have the equipment to actually reproduce the tone).

The extras are not that plenty though, with the best feature being the "Voices From The List" featurette (although at 1 hour plus, it's more a feature than a featurette). There is very little extras in terms of the actual production, which is the only real negative point about this DVD.

A Collector's Gift set is available, although it's a tough choice for those of us that already own the excellent movie sountrack. Full screen versions are also available, not that I would bother with these.

You can use these links to pre-order the various versions:
