I searched for SAY ANYTHING on HTF but didn't find any threads here yet. I bought this DVD because I love this movie so much. So far I've watched the extra's, featurette, listened to the commentary and watched fave scenes. I haven't watched the entire movie since I watched the Laserdisc I bought 9 months ago. This movie is awesome. If I have ever seen a movie so well put together and so well delivered, it is this movie. I wish the commentary was almost a pausable one where you could freeze frames and hear the actors continue talking abour each scene until they had exhausted all of their thoughts, because they sometimes miss neat things I wish they talked about. Regardless, the commentary is really cool and I really really appreciate the extra 20 minutes at the beginning which I think is interetsing. I really really like this movie and its so very unique. Does anyone else like this movie as much as I do?

Chris,
Yes, I think you'll find that this film is quite popular here on the HTF. I'm surprised that you found no discussions on a search, and this title is one of the "pet titles" this forum directly campaigned for. Looks like the HTF search engine is unable to deal with the words "say" and "anything"- seems to disregard them completely... curious. Anyway, heres some past discussions so you can see what a big film this is for this forum:

Chris:

There is a glitch in the software when searching for the word "anything" on any vBulletin forum. I have notified vBulletin about this.

I am going to have to give this another go. I bought it based on a lot of people saying how good it was, and on my love of Jerry Maguire and Untitled, but it just didn't seem to work for me. Some good moments, though. Dunno why, maybe it was the mood I was in...:frowning:

Sometimes it all clicks when a older movie you love is released with a great transfer, alot of good extras, and a fantastic commentary, and a cheap price too. Are dvd's a great format or what?

I have always liked this movie. I had some issues with some of the acting when I saw it when I was younger, but all things considered, I still liked it then and only like it more now. There are ideas in the film that are so well presented and speak to things that I am have felt about life if only subconsciously. I really like the honest and rational Loyd Dobler character that John plays. Ione Skye is a great too as Diane. Anyways, the whole story is so well done its amazing. Probably a movie I will watch a couple times a year.

This is one of my very favorite movies. I'm a sucker for John Cusack romantic/comedy movies. Another I really like, which I just bought, is Serendipity.
Peace Out~:D

I've had that same thought about some commentaries, and I wonder if we'll ever see anything like this. A commentary track where they freeze-frame or loop the video while the audio track continues going to point out some small detail, or spends a little more time discussing a scene before moving on. Does DVD technology allow for anything like this, or would it have to be an entirely separate video transfer of the film, too?

Thats a good idea. It could be easily done, with each speaker given the chance to point out specific things about the scenes. Would be cool.

Frankly, I think that the commentary track on Say Anything is perfect as is.
What I do wish though, is that the promised commentary for the deleted/alternate scenes existed.

I am an unabashed Say Anything fan, as one can see by my signature. I pop it in the player and see the opening sequence with Lloyd, D.C., and Corrie all the time and I never get tired of it. The dialogue in this movie goes well beyond "movie dialogue". It's sublime and authentic, like hearing a typical conversation between friends.
"That's optimism as a revolutionary act...":D

I'm not that big on this movie, mostly cause I can't get over the presentation of Cusack's character as the greatest, most saintly guy in the world. But the soundtrack rules, and Cusack wears a Fishbone t-shirt in several scenes!! (Sorry, us Fishbone fans are obsessive.)

I'd liked Hi-Fidelity. I haven't seen too many other movies. There have been so many crappy movies its not funny. So most actors these days are in the poorer movies. I am more interested in non-mainstream movies. They seem to be the only ones which interest me nowadays. Fewer and fewer hollywood movies are good these days.
