Tucker: The Man and His Dream
Director Francis Ford Coppola teamed up with his former protégé — here executive producer — George Lucas for this glossy biopic of automobile upstart Preston Tucker (Jeff Bridges). Features: Commentary by Coppola, 1948 Tucker promo film, making-of documentary, anamorphic wide-screen, Dolby Digital 5.1.

The Transformers: The Movie
This toy-to-movie animated flick is notable for two reasons: It boasts the first appearance of ”The Touch,” the hard-rockin’ tune that Mark Wahlberg and John C. Reilly record in Boogie Nights, and it’s one of Orson Welles’ final roles. Features: Storyboards, interview with the film’s composer.
