Does B&B work as a stand alone short?

Or do you have to know the characters in order to like it?

Yea, B&B does kinda suck, it's a mess. I mean, some site or magazine or something called it one of the best specs they ever saw. I couldn't imagine even sitting through the whole 12 minutes without seeing the movie. There's a cool alternate take here or there but there's not that much otherwise. The music doesn't even really work with a lot of the visuals.

Yeah, I wouldn't call it a short film at all, just some alternate takes/deleted scenes/artwork/music piled together. And 'Here We Go' isn't really a music video either, its really just a deleted scene scored by the song ain't it? Oh well, its 'PDL', and thats enough for me. They really should've chucked 'Couch' in there somewhere though, at least then they could've rightfully said it contains a short film.....

As PTA said, 'Couch' is just something silly he did with Sandler and a camera. I didn't even think it was that funny...not very PTA...very Sandler.

I can't remember who did Here We Go...??

From Premiere magazine:

The two-disc set includes a Superbit disc of the movie, valuable deleted scenes, and the best extra in the short history of the disc format— a wonderful short film, Blossoms and Blood, that utilizes deleted scenes, alternate takes, and other footage to create an experience just as shockingly beautiful as the film itself. — Ian Rainnie

Ummm, OK.

I like the bit with Sandler watching that little kid -- not that it matters now, but I really would've liked ALL the deleted scenes. Some filmmakers are really conscious about the stuff they cut out never being seen, but from what we got on the Boogie Nights 2nd disc, I'd say there was some gold in the vaults, and I'm a little sad that I'll never get to see it.

But yeah, in accordance to what some others have said, it was a bit of a let down, extras-wise.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
