BLACK AND WHITE (Columbia/TriStar) is director/writer James Toback’s 1999 comedy/drama about white people fascinated by black culture, starring Scott Caan, Robert Downey Jr., Gaby Hoffman and Jared Leto. The DVD’s supplemental material includes audio commentary from Toback, deleted scenes and alternate takes, music videos and Toback’s "video diary."

FINAL DESTINATION (New Line Home Video), released earlier this year, is a horror movie about a group of high school students who survive a plane crash only to discover that they may have been destined to die. Directed by James Wong, the film stars Devon Sawa and Ali Larter. There is a Dolby 5.1 sound option. Supplemental material includes an isolated 5.1 music score, commentary by Wong, commentary by co-screenwriter Glen Morgan and two "making of" documentaries.

THE FLINTSTONES IN VIVA ROCK VEGAS (Universal Home Video), released earlier this year and directed by Brian Levant, stars Mark Addy as the Yabba-Dabba-Do man Fred and Stephen Baldwin as Barney Rubble in a prequel to the first live-action FLINTSTONES.

JOE GOULD’S SECRET (UMVD/USA Home Video), released earlier this year, is director Stanley Tucci’s fact-based drama about an upscale New York journalist who befriends a brialliant homeless man. Tucci stars with Ian Holm.

SCREWED, released earlier this year, is a dark comedy about a dog-napping gone awry, starring Norm Macdonald, Danny DeVito and Dave Chappelle under the direction of Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.

WAKING THE DEAD (UMVD/USA Home Video), released earlier this year, is director Keith Gordon’s adaptation of the Scott Spencer novel about a young politician haunted by what may be hallucinations, a ghost or his actual lost love, believed dead in a car bombing. The film is unusually astute and successful in its ambiguity. Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connelly, both excellent, star.

WHERE THE HEART IS (Fox Home Video), released earlier this year, stars Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd and James Frain in a comedy/drama about a young unwed mother trying to settle down. Matt Williams directs. The DVD comes with a music video from the Warren Brothers with Sara Evans, "That’s the Beat of a Heart."
