The bad news is no extras, not even a trailer.
I was hopnig for a commentary by Altman and Williams.
Golly! Not even a lousy trailer. Thanks Paramount!!!
At least its W I D E and 5.1
Typical great news/bad news from Paramount.
Oh well. I really wanted this one on (OAR) DVD so I'm not about to start complaining now.
Some form of featurette would have been appreciated though...
Dont get me wrong, ill be picking it up too, just a little dissapointed about no trailer. In the year 2003, with all the full blown special editions, trailers should be mandatory, if not anything else.
Here is the back cover (from DavisDVD as stated above)...
and what's so SPECIAL about those special features ?
What special features would exist anyway? And can we safely say that this is yet another product of the extra-hating Eric Doctorow regime? (Doctorow resigned early this year; could some of the discs his regime was working on still be coming out now?)
(People who know a lot about Paramount will understand what I mean...)
That's a stunning misuse of the phrase 'Special Features'.
"Hey look everyone! You can watch with a French mono track!"
I'm beginning to believe that whoever is in charge of dvd's at Paramount is a little 'special' himself.
What some folks forget is that this was a co-production with Disney, much like DRAGONSLAYER. The film has been tied up in legal limbo for some time. It may be that any additional materials just aren't available. Also, Williams and Altman aren't exactly fans of the film, so I'm not sure that they would want to relive the bad times in a commentary. I'm just happy to get the film in its OAR and in a multichannel mix. Too bad that it's Paramount and will be overpriced.
The forgot to mention chapter-stops and "color" among the special features list
In any case...I'm also happy just to get a 16x9 OAR copy of this film. It's a buy.
I wasn't complaining that the disc is bare-boned. Sure I'd like a trailer, but I'll take this release as-is.
I was merely commenting on the description of "Specifications" as "Special Features". I think most of us were.
No one was complaining, David.
I'm so used to those "special features=specs" boxes from Paramount; can't they jazz 'em up a bit? How about listing "disc-holding hub" and "side security sticker"?
Don't forget about the full color artwork on the disc
LOL, special features.
I'm sure I am not the only one that thinks that those features should be standard for any DVD.
I think that "protective outer case" should be another item added to the special features list!
It's been a long time since I have seen this and never in it's OAR. Does anyone remember a scene at the end of the film when Popeye is walking on water and they squeezed the whole image into the p&s version? It was one shot where everything looked really bad.
I think studios often sell their product short. I mean "Special Features" are listed and no mention of the "Three Collectible Security Stickers"?!
I can just imagine the sticker on the front: "Now with marketing stickers!"
