‘Y Tu Mamá’ DVD
has great extras

The sensational sexual coming-of-age film "Y Tu Mamá También" is out on DVD, and besides a making-of documentary, another special feature is an amusing short from director Alfonso Cuaron's brother Carlos (who co-wrote the film) called "Me la Debes (You Owe Me)" about the steamy goings-on in a middle-class Mexican household. (By the way, there are two versions of the film out, one R-rated and the other unrated.)

>> With another James Bond film -- "Die Another Day" -- looming, MGM has put together a tasty group of seven 007 films in a box set, ranging from the first, 1962's "Dr. No" with Sean Connery, to 1997's "Tomorrow Never Dies" with Pierce Brosnan. All DVDs include extras, including commentary from either cast members or the directors.

>> And with Halloween just around the corner, the third collection of the popular '60s Gothic soap opera "Dark Shadows" will be released Tuesday. The show's central vampiric character, Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), was a pop culture icon during the show's original run on ABC. The collection includes 40 complete episodes on four discs, with exclusive cast and director interviews.

>> By the way, if you have the "Final Fantasy" DVD set, here's an egg hunt for you: Insert the second disc and go to "Highlights Menu." Press the Up key and then the Right key. You should see a symbol highlighted at the bottom of the screen, which will take you to the second page of special features. Now press Up once and Right twice. You should see a small frame highlighted in the right-hand corner. Press Enter and you will see a "Final Fantasy" adaptation of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video.
