Why is it that the only DVD's available with multiple camera angles are XXX rated discs? Wouldn't it be great to see sports events or sport related movies taking advantage of this technology? Right now, when you watch a football game(for example), you could select which camera you want to see, rather then the Director making that choice for you? While watching the play, we could say let me switch to the end zone shot, or maybe the 50 yard line, or from the GoodYear Blimp. They are using at least 9 cameras at the game anyway, so if it were on disc, we could choose which camera to go to. There are many great sport related movies that would have been great with this added feature, which is already built in to just about every DVD player. This great feature should not be limited to just porno movies.

It's limited only to porn movies because the viewer has to do something with his left hand! ;)

I was really dissapointed with the mulit-camera angles on O Brother Where Art Thou. All it showed was the storyboard drawing of the different camera angle. One cool feature though was the fact that you could look the regular camera angle, or the different angle, or both wth a split screen.

heyhey


I just received this DVD and can recommend it to any F1 fan. Its

interactive - you can chose to watch highlights from each race from in-car cameras, track camera, pit action, or a combination of all. The quality of the transfer is very good IMO, even though most of the races in 2000 were in the rain and this dulls things a bit. Also some of the tracks have better video feeds than others, which is not the fault of the DVD. Surround Sound is great - nothing like a engine revving to 18,000 rpms...


I was hoping for more in-car footage from each race (only about 3-4 minutes per), but its a minor complaint. Its great to be able to jump to any race and see the highlights. The rear facing in-car camera on Schumie's Ferrari as it races through Monaco is incredible - there's really quite a bit of rear suspension movement compared to the front.


Race footage includes the obligatory "attractive females trying to get noticed" at every race (Monaco is CRAZY)


I bought mine from Ebay but see now Amazon has them for about what I paid:

Looks incredible on the home theatre I recently set up, the Jordan yellows are intense, and the Ferrari reds are luscious, and if the Jaguars went anywhere nearly as well as their colour scheme looked, they'd be winning races.


cheers!

Hey Kurt: Thanks for letting me know about this disc; I will have to check it out. By the way has anyone compared it to Super Speedway in THX? That is awesome (but not interactive. Check it out. Anyone seen both of these discs?
