Simply put, there is just about nothing going on in the surrounds -- discrete effects are extremely rare. Even the typically sprightly Thomas Newman score is confined to the fronts. Considering the narrow sound design, the Dolby Digital-Plus track handles the material easily. Dialogue is always front and center, and crystal clear. The rest of the sonic palette is also nicely rendered, with a warm, pleasing tone. No, there is no whomping low bass to challenge the subwoofer, nor any other aural bells and whistles. But this is the rare high-def disc release where we care about the words characters say, and not just the things they blow up -- on that level, this soundtrack is as good as it needs to be.
On the plus side, 'Erin Brockovich' contains perhaps the best collection of Deleted Scenes I've seen for a movie. Totaling nearly 30 minutes, I don't think a single scene here isn't as good (or better, in some cases) as what's included in the finished film. Thankfully, Steven Soderbergh provides commentary on why this material was excised, which runs the gamut from the narrative suffering from too many subplots to simply keeping the film's running time at a manageable length. Regardless, these scenes are definitely worth the time investment, and are good enough that someday it might be interesting to see Soderbergh create a new, longer cut reinstating all of the cut material.
Next are two featurettes. "Spotlight on Location" (15 minutes) is fairly typical, with cast and crew (including Soderbergh and Julia Roberts) offering plot recap, but the chance to see the real Erin Brockovich and Ed Masry (Albert Finney's character) make this one worth watching. Likewise, the 4-minute "The Real Erin Brockovich" is just more of her interview.

The conflict over chromium-6 regulation stems not only from the question of how much is safe, but the staggering cost of cleaning up such a widespread contaminant that is an industrial pollutant but also occurs naturally. The California Department of Public Health estimates that treating the state's water to meet the legal limit of 10 parts per billion will cost nearly $20 million a year, so the cost of meeting the much more stringent public health goal would be far higher.
There are two main types of chromium compounds. Chromium-3, or trivalent chromium, is a naturally occurring compound and an essential human nutrient. Chromium-6 also occurs naturally, but is manufactured for use in steel making, chrome plating, manufacturing dyes and pigments, preserving leather and wood and, as in the Brockovich case, lowering the temperature of water in the cooling towers of electrical power plants. Chromium-6 is also in the ash from coal-burning power plants, which is typically dumped in unlined pits that a 2011 report by the nonprofit Earthjustice said may threaten hundreds or thousands of water supplies and private wells. And recent research has suggested that some methods of treating water supplies to remove other contaminants may actually increase levels of chromium-6.
After his role in tampering with the Chinese study was exposed, Paustenbach resigned from the advisory panel. Beaumont and his colleagues started over, using the authentic study to guide the public health goal. In 2005, EWG obtained and published documents and emails that detailed the deception, which was also recounted in a front-page story in The Wall Street Journal. The scientific journal that published the bogus study retracted it.
More than 200 property owners, over a quarter of the town, have elected to sell their homes to the utility. Along long stretches of asphalt, country mailboxes sprout like desert flowers amid scatterings of boarded-up houses.
