oh you know, the way i heard about it i expected something bad, but i think it could've been better but isn't bad at all. in fact i think it says a little about the story, though i've already said too much



it's available for preorder. i'll buy it. just 'cause duh

Yeah, not a bad cover. It lacks a GFF.

Plus, if you turn it inside-out,  you'll get the original movie poster, which will be the best bet for anyone who deems it worth a purchase.

Extras include a 6-min 'Back Beyond' style montage, two solo deleted scenes, a behind the scenes doc by the Ross Brothers (that's already floating about online), a handful of trailers and, if you get the blu-ray, my first feature film on the second disk.

my first feature film on the second disk.

this is an awesome extra. is this a common thing? i don't think i've heard of an entire feature being packaged with another film as an extra just on the basis of it being by the same director, other than those bargain bin billy madison-happy gilmore-click type collections.

or is it just to dispel the misconception that this is your first film? like when outkast broke through with stankonia and everyone was like "wow such a great first album".

There are a few other comparable examples, all via Criterion - Jarmusch's PERMANENT VACATION is an extra on the STRANGER THAN PARADISE disc, and Linklater's YOU CAN'T LEARN TO PLOW is on the SLACKER dvd.

I think this is the perfect DVD release for ST. NICK. It's a bare-bones disc, unfortunately, but I've got some longstanding extras that I'll put online.

Rare, but not unheard of.  Linklater did it with Slacker.  His first was It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books.  That's the only one that comes to mind.

The Criterion release of Soderbergh's King of the Hill also has his next feature, The Underneath, as an extra.

There's a recent movie called THE UNSPEAKABLE ACT that also has the director Dan Sallitt's previous feature ALL THE SHIPS AT SEA on the DVD.

cuz that's what it's about!


No, it's probably that you swedes don't have a word for 'Ain't' or the translation is frjskl'fklfgdsgfdkw'fk' and it doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
