This movie speaks for itself. We don't have to go into the content, performances, or controversial subject matter, since who hasn't seen this movie???
My issue is the DVD itself.
1) The cut from disc 1 to disc 2 is lousy. I would have done it where the "intermission" scene happens, but then I'm not in charge of these type of things, leave that to the smart guys.
2) The sound and picture were DVD? I thought I may have accidentally splipped in my VHS copy instead. Where did they remaster this thing, Radio Shack?
3) The bonus features are lousy. 229 minute movie and you couldn't come up with anything good?
a) an 18 minute documentary that looks like it was filmed by me
b) a "photographic journey" that you can't fast forward thru
c) Cast & crew section that just lists the names- no info on each name, except Leone, who really never did much except eat.
d) Deleted scenes: NONE
e) Alternate ending: NONE
f) Spanish & French: NONE
g) Booklet: NONE
4) And finally this informative commentary, that was worth including. Have you ever gone to a movie with someone who turned out to be "below your level" and just won't shut up??? He's here, on this DVD!!! And he won't shut up!!!
This is the Special Edition DVD, right? Tell you what, I found a greek version. Now it doesn't have subtitles (unless your greek), but the audio & picture is much better and IT'S ONE DISC! You don't have to turn it over or anything!!! ONE DISC!!
Save yourself a lot of heartbreak and don't buy this version, they must know that a lot of people are quite unhappy with it. Read the other reviews!!!
Now go get your @#$! shine box, and buy Goodfellas instead.
