    I was thinking about picking this up. Did anyone enjoy the dvd version of this film? Thanks.

    It's been ages since I've rented it, but I know that the deleted scenes and the alternate endings were pretty cool.

    Speak of the devil, I just finished watching this (for the third time) about 20 minutes ago! The DVD is really good - while not absolutely loaded by today's standards, what's there is solid stuff. Most interesting is the featurette on test screenings and the deleted scenes, and there are also 3 audio commentaries to boot. You can't go wrong with New Line Platinum Series...

    Solid dvd Steve. Outstanding image clearity and one rockin and rollin 5.1 mix make this worth a purchase. Plus it's just one great story. This dvd is worth it just for that... bone shattering plane crash dream sequence alone!

    I don't know about anyone else, but I just can't hear 'Rocky Mountain High' anymore without thinking that something terrible is about to happen! [​IMG]

    One of the worst films I've ever seen in my life. Atrocious.

    (sorry, but you did ask!)

    Actually Rob, I believe Steve was asking about the quality of the disc and not whether or not the film was any good, that's how I took it anyway. I could be wrong though.

    I felt that the transfer was way too soft and hazy. I saw this film two times in the theaters, and I don't remember it looking like that. Especially in the scene when they are having the memorial (if you could call it that) at school, and they are giving speeches. That's when you can see that the picture is very hazy, and kind of blurry/soft.

    Hmmmm....At least that's the kind of picture I got from my Sony Wega.

    I wonder if the extras had anything to do with the video quality of the disc. 3 commentaries, plus documentaries, plus deleted scenes, plus featurettes must amount to some kind of video loss.

    This disc is loaded with goodies, especially composer Shirley Walker's commentary. You'll be able to hear the entire score in multi-track and during cue breaks, Shirley's commentary. She goes into some fascinating details on film scoring. I'm hoping we won't see the end of isolated scores with composer commentary on dvd. This is one fantastic example of how dvds can provide an intimate and detailed look at film scoring from a very talented composer's point of view.

    I think it's a good movie and dvd. Remember the intended audience was the college crowd and even teenagers despite the R rating. It was better in the theater when I jumped a few times and accidentally kicked the chair in front of me and hollered out, "shit!".

    To me the most terrifying scene is the:

    boy who slips on the water in the bathroom...the shower rope or chord! Wow. Scary and tragic at the same time.


    they have a new teaser out that plays before TTT, for Final Destination 2.

    I bought this flick when it came out. Pretty descent film for the genre. I just wish New Line had been supporting DTS back when this one was released in 2000 [​IMG]

    the death clock extra on the disc freaks everybody out.
    They all laugh nervously after the shock of seeing the date.

    I heard that in FD2 only the girl from FD has survived. I thought that Alex survived the movie.
