blu-ray disc not the film
on 11 July 2012
Big fan of Mallrats; one of the few, it would seem, who saw it in the cinema. Have bought more than one version on DVD, including the alternative cut and even bought it on HD-DVD.
This disc is a "vanilla" disc, in the extreme. Perhaps because of the fact that the cover used was not the same as the original awful R2 dvd release I thought this might at least have the extras available on R1 DVD (if not the extended cut). Wrong. No "featurettes", no deleted scenes, no 10th anniversary goodies, no extended cut (no surprise) but worst of all no commentary! Yes, no commentary. No English (or any) words on the menu, for example to select chapters you choose the symbol that looks like an open book.
Picture is sharper, colours are richer and the DTS-HD sound is an improvement but that is the absolute minimum I expect from a blu-ray hi-def release.
A wasted opportunity.
