Both Gangster Squad and Jurassic Park are both coming out on DVD. Below will be some more information and details on each. Check it out and make sure to leave some thoughts in a comment.

The movie Gangster Squad by Warner Bros. will be coming out on Blue-ray and DVD. The director for this film is Ruben Fleischer and the cast of this movie contains Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie and even more. Mickey Cohen is the gangster in this movie and this film follows him in Los Angeles in the late 1940′s.

There is a team of detectives that went above and beyond to take this one guy down. Gangster Squad is not a bad movie, it just isn’t and engaging one. The director gives a very stylish and slick piece with a super fine cast. Unfortunately, the film as a whole is a bit on the shady and hollow side.This movie is the type of movie that kids that aren’t old enough to watch it, will fall in love with. Anyone else will see right through this movie, especially someone who has seen a good amount of cops and criminal movies in their life.

There are quite a few special features that come along with this DVD. There are twelve minutes of deleted scenes. However, the shooting in a theater scene that was removed was reshot and never put back in as a deleted scene. Also included is a commentary with Fleischer; a PiP  trivia track that is kind of cool because it can be watched along with the movie or seperatley, however you choose. There is a total of 46 minutes in extras total. Special features also include a 47 minute profile of Mickey Cohen. There are eight minutes of then and now locations and there is a five minute “Touch Guys With Style” bit.

Jurassic Park 3D is by Universal and will be coming out on Blu-ray 3D combo pack. This film is directed by Steven Spielberg. The cast for this movie contains Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Bob Peck and more. The 3D version of Jurassic Park is very convincing, even convincing to the point where you would think that the movie was originally shot in 3D. However, saying how great it is, in the Blu-ray version all of the characters seem to be of a hue of orange, like all of the characters went for a tan. This is throughout the film but its all in making the 3D pop the way it should. Depending on your love for this movie, you may not want to make that compromise.

Like Gangster Squad, there are also special features. There is the World of Jurassic Park 3D which is about nine minutes and there is a look at Spielberg and how his technicians went about converting the film into 3D. The 2D disk will also be included in this pack.
