I'll echo that. I really don't see myself buying this DVD, but five stars for the review!

Jason, highest compliments for writing an excellent review of the disc even though you didn't like the movie. I think that's the hardest job a reviewer can undertake.

I did enjoy the movie, but I had low expectations. This is one of the rare occasions where the trailer accurately conveyed the shtickiness and silliness of the comedy -- and it is a comedy; the Chucky movies were never really horror films, even at the beginning -- instead of trying to disguise the film as something it isn't.

I think my favorite part was all the film quotations. Most of them were as obvious as Glen/Glenda, but there were a few moments (a homage to Magic, some of the less obvious Psycho references) that caught me by surprise and made me laugh out loud. And you have to give credit to any film in which John Waters dies a gruesome death. Posted Image

I doubt I'll ever watch the film again, but it's a worthwhile rental.

I didn't look at every extra, but my favorite was J. Tilly's diary. Her frankness about the experience of making the movie was a refreshing change from the usual PR gushing.

Again, great review!

Does anybody know which version of the DVD is carried by Netflix? It says 'Unrated' but the cover art shown is of the R-rated DVD.

I haven't seen "Seed of Chucky", but my first guess would be that it's a reference to a certain Ed Wood movie ...

What a TERRIBLE movie. I rented this last weekend and was utterly disappointed. I love the first four flicks and I was hoping this would've been just as good. Man, was I wrong. That's an hour and a half of my life I'm never getting back. I hope to god they end the franchise after this. It was just bad on so many levels.

Great review, Jason, but for great horror/comedies, I'd reccommend THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD or EVIL DEAD 2 instead of SHAUN OF THE DEAD myself Posted Image

Anybody pick up the Canadian release of this? Is the Mancini/Tilly commentary included? It's not listed on the back. EDIT: Nevermind. A rental copy sticker was covering that information. I see it's there.
