Not today but yesterday I watched some of the extra`s on the Criterion disc of Rome Open City
Very interesting extra`s so far (haven`t yet watched them all). I especially liked the video interview with Rossellini scholar Adriano Aprą. Very interesting and highly educational.

You've apostrophized extras several times but you were also careful enough to include the accent in Aprą. I am amused. Also note I'm not an internet grammar Nazi as they're as pointless as tits on teabags.

And I copy-pasted Aprą from the Criterion site so it was already there

Inglourious Basterds (BD) - all extras. The most interesting were the round table discussion with Tarantino, Pitt and interviewer Elvis Mitchell, and the interview bits with Rod Taylor (Churchill).

The One-Armed Swordsman
- Everything on the Dragon Dynasty disc bar the commentary. The pick of the bunch was the documentary "The Master: Chang Cheh", which featured interviews with many HK directors Chang influenced. The interview with Jimy Wang Yu was ok, the interview with "film scholars" David Chute and Andy Klein, pretty pointless.



Running Out of Time - Everything bar the commentary, the key feature being the 20-odd minute interview with French screenwriters Julien Carbon and Laurent Courtiard.



Iron Man (US BD) - All of the Disc 1 features, so that's all the stuff about the Iron Man comics and the deleted scenes, plus the daft rotating iron man suits with tech notes.

The documentary that accompanies the Special Edition of Batman 1989 is simply awesome, in depth, passionate, well informed and feeds well into the evolution of Begins.

Plus my entry into the thread generally, I watched on Monday eve, UP on DVD then the extras - docs on location and design and the v funny short films that are given as well.

Iron Man (US BD) - All of disc 2.
Although it's mostly quite standard for superhero movies, and extensive (about 2.5 hours), it was fairly interesting stuff.

Today I saw the 2 disc Criterion edition of Lola Montčs and I really liked the supplements. The Max by Marcel documentary is a lovely little piece and the Cineast du notre temps is really interesting and learnsome..Still have to listen to the audio commentary but so far it`s a highly recommended package

Gungrave - the extras on this anime series amounted to galleries of production art and a couple of trailers for other anime series per disc (7 discs). Little of interest, then, really.



The One-Armed Swordsman (R1 DVD) - The commentary by "film scholars" David Chute and Andy Klein. The case says it also features Quentin Tarantino, but that's a falsehood.
The commo was fair enough, actually, and as with King Boxer, it was kinda nice to have one of these not featuring Bey Logan...

Amores Perros (R1) - The commentary from director Alejandro Gonzįlez Ińįrritu and writer Guillermo Arriaga.
It took me ages to get round to this. Commentaries are pretty low priority anyway, but even more so when they're in a foreign language with English subs as it means you have to sit and watch, you can't get on with something else at the same time. And it's for a 2.5 hour film.

But it was pretty good in the end - Ińįrritu is very talkative, so there were no gaps in the commo. He gave lots of insight into the film's visual style, the sets, how they filmed the dog fighting, working with the actors and recurrent themes throughout the film. If you rate the film highly, as I do, then it's worth a listen/watch.

watched the stuff on the Dark Knight again, its good stuff, very tech-heavy but interesting.

Im sure they'll release some super 4 disk blu ray edition in future.

Inland Empire - the 80-odd minutes of interviews with Lynch. Fairly interesting, if a little repetetive, and I couldn't take my eyes of his wavy hand....

Thirst - the 2 interview bits on the BD, amounting to about 25 mins. Ok, but I'd have been much happier if the commentary had actually been included, as the back cover falsely claims.

Saxondale - Everything from both series - namely, the 3 commentaries, behind the scenes doc and deleted scenes from S1 and 1 commentary, interview with Coogan and Neil Maclennan and pic gallery from S2.

More commentaries, esp on S2, would have been welcome, but the doc and interview were about half an hour each, and perfectly watchable.

Whenever I do my Lynch impersonation, even if it's on the phone, I always do the wavy hand, it's in-built.

Not from a DVD, but I'd consider the supplements for Lost - Season 6 broadcast on Sky One to be "extras", so that's:

Lost: The End Is Nigh
Lost: Top 10 Greatest Scenes

Lost: The Final Journey Pts 1 & 2


The first two were the usual half-arsed interview/documentary things with Iain Lee, and didn't add a great deal to the final season.
The two-part Final Journey show was fine, the interviews being more substantial and the interviewees more interesting. Writers Carlton Cuse and particularly Damon Lindelof came across a little too self-satisfied and smug for my liking, though.

Election - the brief (sub-10 min) Making Of. Somehow I missed this when I watched the interviews back in April 2008 (?!)




Deadly Outlaw: Rekka
- the short interview with Miike Takashi, contained some interesting insight into the background of the film, so it's a shame this wasn't more substantial.

Violent Cop - The 70 minute (French) interview / documentary Takeshi Kitano: The Unpredictable. Pretty interesting stuff, and it's a shame that the other extras in the Second Sight boxset were limited to a couple of commentaries.



Warrior King - The interviews with Tony Jaa, Pechtai Wongkamlao, Bongkoj Khongmalai, director Prachya Pinkaew and stunt co-ordinator Panna Rittikrai, plus a combined interview with other cast and crew members, all totalling about 80 minutes. Fine, but it went on a bit, and of least value was probably Wongkamlao's section, his background as a comedian explaining his light relief roles in this and Ong Bak, but little else.
Also, the On the Press Trail thing (about 12 mins) in which we see Jaa showing off a well-rehearsed routine in various countries, seemingly to advertise Ong Bak, rather than this film, which is impressive, but repetetive, and Revolution Uprising which similarly showcases Jaa's talents, but it's pre-production / test footage, so it's more expansive and more relevent to the film at hand, showcasing key action scenes from the film, performed in the training school replete with cardboard box walls, wobbly swords and fake glass bottles.

I watched Zodiac last week and tried to get through the girth of extras. Made it into one of the docs on the suspect but couldn't penetrate any farther.

So many extras on DVDs of mine gone unwatched by now....

I watched the commentaries on Zodiac back in 2008, and several months later some of the other stuff. This is what I said when I last tried to get through 'em:

quote:

ORIGINAL: Gram123
Zodiac (Director's Cut) - Jeez, this is going to take me forever. Don't get me wrong, I liked the film, but there's a proper chunk of extras isn't there? I'd already sat through both commentaries, so I decided to crack on with the other bits, without realising how long they are. I watched the 54 minute Zodiac Deciphered doco, and then I quit.
Had a quick look at what I've got left to watch... Visual Effects (15 mins), Pre-Viz (9 mins), This is the Zodiac Speaking (102 mins), His Name Was (42 mins). So just another 2¾ hours in total....


And the ruddy DVD is still sitting there, taunting me with it's mass of unwatched special features...
I really try to watch all extras on everything (hence being probably the main contributor to this thread!), but certain things just don't scream "Watch me!".

Yeah some DVDs can have too much stuff. I think it was "His name was " that I watched. It's totally forgetable save for seeing what the real Graysmith was like but he's probably in the other doc(s).

I think Phantom Menace still holds up as probably the best package considering it didn't just overload you with a bazillion hours or stuff you may or may not be interested.

We used to complain about the lack of extras now we complain about there being too many :p


Anyway, yeah the stuff on the Zodiac disc really aren't that appealing to me. A simple 90min doc would suffice. I have that mammoth Panic Room set and that's gone unwatched since it came out! I really did enjoy the film but after I realised that most of the extras are just pre-viz stuff I didn't carry on watching....
