SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS

Special Features

  • Commentary
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Music Video
  • and more


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
stands out as a timeless
classic. The story is about how jealousy and vanity can consume and
destroy a person to the point where they would kill those who stand in
their way. The moral however is about how outer beauty cannot hide
inner ugliness and that the most beautiful person is one who is beauty
on the inside as well as outside. Here you go world, Disney’s first
princess movie.




YEAR ONE

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Alternate Ending
  • Gag Reel
  • Multiple Cuts
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Commentary

Year One was a film that everyone was expecting to bomb after it got knocked down to a PG-13 rating. Quicker than you could say Egon Spengler, Harold Ramis pulled a modest success out of his ass. Jack Black, Olivia Wilde and others make great work out of the classic comedy throwback. Some folks such as Paul Rudd and Michael Cera feel oddly out of place. The mugging and post-modern posturing doesn’t apply very well to older comedy. There’s plenty of lazy jokes, but nothing that should take you out of the picture.


TRICK ‘R TREAT

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Additional Scenes
  • Commentary


Trick ‘R Treat is a film that took awhile to arrive on Home Video. I saw it at a pseudo film festival dealie last year and I quite enjoyed it. Dylan Baker and Brian Cox play up the EC Comics nature of the horror anthology. Plus, you’ve got Anna Paquin stretching a rather thin sexual predator tale to new levels. Talent is everywhere on this project, naturally Warner Brothers doesn’t know what to do with it. Get your ass out there and support a quality film on Tuesday. Buy or rent this film.
