 Discjunkie's Comments

Packaging / Design

A rather interesting case even if it's not the most luxurious. The case is all in one piece, meaning that the built in digipack part never leaves the slipcase, but actually comes to a full stop once you slide it out far enough.

The outer cover is not glossy but it's got a really light plastic finnish (kind of like it's been protected by some kind of plastic spray, so it's got a little bit of texture to it)...

I'm not really sure how I feel about it. It's an interesting choice but feels a bit cheap. Plus I think that a regular digipack in slipcase would have looked a lot better.


Disc contents / Extras

This disc appears to have all the same features as the other regions, and so here's a disc review pretty much identical to what I've written about a pretty identical release.

The menus look good and are kind of still but with some very nice animated details (it captures the abondened look and feel of the film very nicely and give the whole thing a nice quality to it). As for extras there's a commentary and some deleted scenes; some of which are good and some of wich are bad (alternate scenes are never that fun when there's only minor changes). There's a 24-minute making of along with some galleries and a music video.

The inside of the disc looks and feels good. All the extras (including all the commentaries) come with optional french or dutch subtitles (but the english subtitles are only available for the main features standard audio track).

All in all this disc has a pretty good line up and I advice you to pick it up right away. Granted most editions come with all the same features so it doesn't have to be the french version in particular.


Sidenotes

The slightly odd looking case was only available for the first pressing. Current pressings are presented in a standard keepcase.

The case is all in one peace - the foldout digipack and the slipcase are connected so the digipack only slides out, it never detatches from the slipcase.

I got There Will Be Blood dvd, which the packaging is the same as this one... I think its an odd packaging.

Well steve, the discs are usually the same on both the first and the second pressing... the real difference is the packaging.

I prefer the look of this case (from the pics) than the other one, how do you know if these discs are first pressings though, what gives you the clue?
