THX-CERTIFIED HOME MEDIA RELEASES - Master List
#1
My second master list for the site, this being a comprehensive list of THX-certified releases on the VHS, laser videodisc (more popularly known as LaserDisc), DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D formats. The usual suspects, naturally, are the films of George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and James Cameron; however, even then there are some anomalies, and the world of THX certification is much greater than those three filmmakers, even if THX did have its origins at Lucasfilm. As THX's list no longer appears to be up, and when it was it didn't really distinguish between DVD and Blu-ray, this is an attempt to make things easier, first and foremost by sorting each, as a certain Modern Major-General once boasted, in order categorical. Where applicable, I will also mention which THX trailer was used.

Great list!

For VHS, the Indiana Jones Trilogy Boxset (1999) is THX Certified.

I believe the original VHS of Independence Day was also THX.

Fox's 5-Star Collection DVDs also: Independence Day, Speed, Die Hard Trilogy

Pretty impressive! Just one quibble: to my knowledge, only the 2005 DVD of Titanic has "The Science of Sensation" as its THX trailer.

I added some more and made a correction. Namely, the Star Wars: Clone Wars set that has Cavalcade is Vol. 1, not Vol. 2. Vol. 2 has Tex 2: Moo Can.

As for specific THX trailers, I can say for a fact that Wings (the first one) didn't appear on any home video release, and I don't know of any DVD or Blu-ray that has Eclipse (the newest one) yet. Also, as of writing the 5-Star DVD of Speed appears to be the only known home video release on any platform of any movie or television program to use Grand.

Also: for the LDs of Stargate and Species that use the Broadway trailer, some prints use the standard VHS/LD tone, while others use the normal tone, hence "Broadway, theatrical variant". The DTS DVD of Apollo 13, meanwhile uses the same low-tone variant used for DVD releases, hence "Broadway, DVD variant".

Would you take the honor (and the risk) to manage that THX list? Big Grin

I'll do't to the best of my abilities. But I'm going to need plenty of help, especially as far as VHS cassette listings and THX trailers are concerned.

The Japanese laser videodisc of "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" has been confirmed to use the Broadway trailer, same as the US VHS (only on the laser videodisc it's the THX LaserDisc variant).
