Title: Worst DVD ever
Post by: Pas on June 12, 2003, 09:18:27 PM
For me, this is definietly the Memento Special Edition DVD. Don't get me wrong, it has tons of cool features...if you can find them. I look at the list (including easter eggs) and I haven't found half. Those who have seen it will understand hoe messy and frustrating the navigation is. If you just want to watch the movie, it's not so bad. But when you get to the features you're taken through a series of dumb question that leads to different path depending on your answer. Good concept, bad execution.

Anyway, what's yours ?

I agree with you completely. I'd rather have no extra features than the headache I got trying to navigate those menus. What a pain.

But on that note, a lot of the DVDs I have with no extra features are still cool in my book, since the movies are usually so good. Mulholland Drive or The Pledge or Buffalo 66 are all movies I would have loved to have seen a few features on...but the movies are the main reason I bought them in the first place, so it's all good.

Not if you have this. (http://world.std.com/~trystero/Memento_LE.html)

My most disappointing DVD is probably "The Matrix". While the extras are fine, the commentary track is awful; filled with too much tech talk and not enough set antedotes. Carrie Anne Moss seems to disappear/keep silent for about an hour of the commentary. And then there's the cheap, cardboard snap case it comes in.

I'll say that shitty old cheap release of Lang's Metropolis. Bad features can be disappointing, but if the transfer itself is awful, the whole DVD is worthless.

It's so nice to have the deluxe Metropolis now...

knock it off you two

anyway, i really hate the lost highway dvd. it doesnt bother me that much because i love the film, but its in pan & scan and the quality is worst than vhs (well its about the same as vhs but the blacks are worse). i think thats the shittiest i own, maybe aside from i spit on your grave, but for some reason youd expect it from that.

i hear that the dementia 13 dvd is really crappy, and that you see the actual tape tangle up near the end or something like that.

Which version do you own? They came out with a Millennium Edition not too long ago that has two commentary tracks. One by Meir Zarchi and the other by Joe Bob Briggs. The Meir one is great; he has a lot of stories to tell about making the film.

Gotta cast my vote for Cimino's The Sicilian, R1. It is actually the longer international cut of the flick, but it's panned and scanned all to Hell, the image quality is dreadful, and there are zero extras of any kind. Horrible, horrible disc. And from Artisan too, who have put out some good packages. This surer than sh!t ain't one of 'em.
