Packaging / Design

The keepcase and slipcase look exactly the same but it's still quite a nice cover choice. Exclusive to this HMV edition are 5 limited edition post cards.

It really comes down to a matter of taste but personally I prefer the german steelbook over this packaging. Still if you're a fan of the not to special cardboard slipcase thing you'd probably want to check this one out.

Disc contents / Extras

Even though we're just talking two discs here, I think they really did a great job with the extras.

The Junkyard Score featurette is a nice little piece about the soundtrack of the film. It's basically a slideshow following various aspects of the film and the soundtrack. This featurette runs for a little over 11 min and features an audiotrack by composer Nathan Johnsson (yes, he is related to the director).

The Chickenscratch Storyboards is a very short featurette just showing director Rian Johnsons terrible storyboards (no, that's HIS opinion) as he talks about how much they suck. I rather like this featurette but I really wish it was longer so we could get to see more of these his doodlings... not because they're good storyboards, because they really aren't but it's just very interesting to see how much you can do even if you're not the artistic type.

Finally, I'd like to take a moment and mention the short Origami Master film towards the end of my list. Now, this is not you're classic final film-school project as one would expect, but rather a VERY early production that the director did in high school. Now I find this kind of amusing, I mean, it's all handheld cameras, ninja costumes and brightly coloured toy guns. I mean ok, it's not really related to Brick but it's just humoures to see a director with such a wonderful self-distance, who can just take these (presumably) embarassing memories (and storyboards alike) and show em off as a curiousity even when he doesn't have to.

This release is pretty simular to the german 2 disc set but each release has a couple of unique interesting extras so a true fan might consider both of them.


The slipcase and postcards are only included with the HMV-edition.

The reason I went with the Autobahn steelbook was because it included the 46-minute documentary 'Building Brick'. This release doesn't have that (although it looks like someone copy/pasted the extras text...).
