    Dreamgirls Director's Extended Edition Blu-ray Review
    [​IMG]


    10 years after it was the talk of the town, Dreamgirls remains a delightfully well-crafted film filled with rousing musical numbers and a fascinating journey through the lives of newcomer artists and established acts at a challenging time in America. Jennifer Hudson is a revelation in her role as Effie, and deservedly won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she’s surrounded by an outstanding cast who light up the screen.

    You get an extras disc if you purchase it at Target. I stood in line with my wife who was purchasing two laundry detergents. This gave her a $5 Target card as a bonus which I applied to Dream Girls. Final cost $9.99.

    The extra disc is the same Disc 2 that was included in the earlier 2-Disc Showstopper Edition.

    It contains the following:

    Building the Dream
    Dream Logic: Film Editing
    Dressing the Dreams: Costume Design
    Center Stage: Theatrical Lighting
    Auditions and Screen Tests
    Previsualization Sequences

    Unfortunately, Target only saw fit to include the extra disc in a paper sleeve, rather than designing their own packaging to accommodate its inclusion. I've swapped things out so that I keep the extras disc in the case and the DVD (which I'll never use) in the sleeve, but it's still an annoyance.

    I did exactly the same thing. For any standard disc I replace with a DVD, I usually take the DVD copy I already own, put that in a paper sleeve and store it in the Blu ray case. I recycle the DVD case to use with the DVDs I make from TV. I have to shred the paper insert immediately before I get sentimental and change my mind!
