I think that a commentary would have been nice, but other than that, I can't really think of much more that they could have done. I liked the featurettes that were on the disc, and the deleted scenes were really well done. I think that the intros should become standard fare-explaining why a scene was cut etc (Kevin Smith is also great for doing this). The one deleted scene in the amusement park was tenser than anything else in the film!

I would tend to agree though that it seemed to be marketed as having more than was actually there. Can't remember the audio tracks offhand, but was there really no room on one disc for all of this stuff? I think that 2 discs are a great idea if you need the space on one for better audio/video, but 2 discs for the sake of having 2 discs is just a waste...

The video quality was top notch and the DTS-ES track
(unfortunately, the matrix version) was very good, so I'm glad they put the extras (what there was of them) on a second disc.

A SuperBits disc with supplements from Disney?? Who'd a thunk it? Posted Image

I was expecting a few more extras but overall, I was very pleased with the DVD.

What dissapointed me was that they did not include the great teaser trailer or theatrical trailer.

Thought the DVD was excellent. My only quibble was the lack of trailers. Did find it interesting that while Jackson was interviewed for the short, Willis was not. Since this is Willis's second film with Night, I would have thought he would have cooperated and possibly provided some insight into working with this director, who has give him a couple of solid hits recently.

I think I mentioned in a previous thread that I enjoyed the DVD but hardly thought it merited a two disc special edition. You could have fit everything onto one disc. In reality it had about as much extras as the Sixth Sense and that was all on one disc.

Well, this comes as a disappointment to me as I have just ordered this title! I was looking forward to going through all the extras that must be on that second disc! (I saw the movie through Netflix and they dont send you the second disc unless you rent it seperately).

Loved the movie though, so much so I still would have bought it without any extras! Posted Image

Rob,

Don't get me wrong. I still love this DVD and you will too. Its just odd that it was a two disc set instead of one.

You can thank the director for the lack of extras. I didn't think that it was to lackluster though there is still alot of things to go through. The reason for the 2 disc set is for the DTS soundtrack.
