frist off........the movie..........dvd looks and sounds incredible & the movie itself? Pure big budget, over-dramatic camp that also does have it's sweet & sad moments.....as well as being really corny,yet entertaining as long as you don't take the movie to seriously. Of course after the attack(amazing and heart wrenching!), the movie does go into overkill to have a "happy" ending,when it should've ended sometime right after the attack and be really powerful. I can't wait for the director's cut though since the obvious censoring durring the hospitol scenes as well as other footage cut out to get a PG-13 does become distracting and lessons the impact. I rented it from Hollywood video,though did stop at Blockbu$ter with my little brother first because he wanted to go there......i have'nt been in there for nearly a year(& have't rented for longer than that time it seems) & well i hate the dam place.....the clerks watch you closely(+ follow you around!),as if you're a criminal ect ect. DVD section all P&S if separete releases where made. Only rated versions ect if an Unrated was also released as always............though i did find this extremly odd for BB......they had Pink Flamingo's on video & it says NC-17 clearly on the box,of course they put a dumb restricted vewing sticker on it. I have'nt seen the movie yet and plan on renting it sometime,but i was suprised to see it at BB since i know a R version was never released. & while that was a suprise dont' let that fool you,this BB sucks and practically all other movies released in 2 versions,they only carry the rated,with a couple rare exceptions. Well PH was all rented & i didn't want to get it on video, my brother wanted to check out Scary Movie 2,dvds rented & since i would have to pay for it, didn't wanna waste $$ on video & was interested in seeing the deleted footage,though im' sure not all of it was included on the release as well(same as the 1st) and see it in OAR. I'm sure it won't be that good of a movie,but will give it a chance first. Though just for fun before we left i asked if they had the widescreen version of Jurasic Park 3(movies not that good,was'nt planning on renting either way)...they said no......& i told them well then i'll take my business else where since you refuse to stock movies in WS + also not carry Unrated versions when avalible! They were suprised and did'nt know what to say,lol & we just left. So i stop by Hollywood,havent been there in years also.........and well they're begining to really suck as well & are just as bad as BB. At first i thought they where kewl when they first opened up when i was 15,since they carried unrated/NC-17 at the time & we where stuck with BB for awhile til then because they ran another great video store out of busniess They had Pearl Harbor on dvd,no Scary Movie 2. At least for the most part they did have both WS & P&S versions of some movies like JP3. But as for Rated & unrated......they only stock Rated now & whats worse....they started getting rid of all the older films they have in Unrated form & now have the rated versions only!!! No more Unrated True Romance,Natural Born Killers, Jason Goes To Hell,Dead/Alive,Basic Instinct 9 1/2 Weeks ect ect + NC-17 Bad Liutenant, ShowGirls..........only the censored versions to all those and every other film released in 2 versions I think i'm through with them for good now & if i ever do decide to rent once in awhile....i'll get a membership at Home Video...which stocks Unrated/NC-17 only or both versions + WS only on dvd + has tons of rare,hard to find videos ect & a much better selection overall. It's the only other video store in town near me,so it's my only choice besides buying.
