    I urge anyone who bought/rented the new Road House SE to check out the trivia track. It is less a trivia track (although there is some actual trivia sprinkled throughout) and more of an MST3K-style riff on the movie. And it ends up being hilarious. Surprisingly, the trivia track ended up overshadowing the Smith/Mosier commentary, which I found to be "ok".

    I turned the Smith/Mosier commentary on at the same time as the trivia track - I don't recommend that. Some of the jokes/punchlines in the trivia track depend on the movie audio.

    I should probably pick this edition up and donate my old copy to the library.

    Sincerely,

    Also, about the deleted scenes: Do they have the footage that was included in the theatrical trailer, but not in the movie itself?

    To BrandonJF:

    Haven't seen the new RH disc yet to watch the trivia track, but just saw online that, MST3K's Mike Nelson has just started a new website called "RiffTrax" www.rifftrax.com, where for a nominal fee ($1.99 for the first movie), you can download a full length "MST" style comedic commentary MP3 to sync up in either your iPod/MP3 player or PC (or even burn to a CD) along with the actual movie for a "MST-style" experience.

    Long story short, the first movie they riffed on is Road House. [​IMG] There's a brief clip (with the commentary) available for preview on the website, and it's pretty [​IMG]...a little jarring to hear the voice and not see the silhouttes in the corner. [​IMG]

    This new version doesn't even have a Dolby Digital 5.1 track. It has a Dolby surround at the highest compression 192kb produce the thin sound that I hate. Skip this DVD.
     
  7. Much as I like RH, this is a tough sell as a double dip.

    Slightly improved PQ and a couple extras isn't really enough for me to go through the trouble of selling off my old one and looking for a deal on the new one.

    But none the less, I did perk-up when I saw this on the self and it sounds like people are having fun with it.

    It almost seemed like someone from MST3K wrote that "trivia" track. I didn't check the dvd credits to see if it listed who did write it, but it is worth the price of the disc alone. It was impressive to see comedic timing in a trivia track.

    I never even noticed before, but they actually reuse the exact same shot twice in a small amount of time. The smart-a$$ trivia track said something like "You might be feeling a sense of deja vu .... since you just saw this EXACT same shot 1 minute and 29 seconds ago". (Not verbatim).

    The track continually rags on Swayze - sometimes overlaying Joey Tribbiani acting tips from "Friends" over Swayze's scenes... or giving out direction via the trivia track prior to Swazye doing someth

    I need to go check out that site - I won't be surprised if I find out Nelson wrote that track on the DVD. Thanks for the tip!

    Edit - ok I did check out that site. I take it back. I'd be surprised if Nelson wrote the track on the DVD. That clip on the site was nowhere near as funny as the track on the DVD. Heck, Smith and Mosier did better than that. If that clip was supposed to be the sample that makes the sale.... ouch.

    Dolby Surround is the original theatrical soundrack, so 5.1 is unecessary.
    and it sounds pretty good to me.

    The triva subtitle is absoultely a riot, BTW. I haven't listened to the Kevin Smith/Scott Mosier track, but I wonder if it was Smith who wrote the trivia track?
