What is it about unwrapping a brand new DVD on Christmas morning that’s so exciting? Is it the fact that we now have unlimited access to that movie we’ve been obsessing over? For me, not so much–it’s the stuff that goes on behind the scenes that gives my heart that extra thrill. Deleted scenes, cast and crew interviews, original TV trailers, fight scene choreography, long monologues by prop makers and foley artist excerpts? Booyah!
Things like this make me excited to be a movie viewer. And don’t even get me started on the Director’s Cut discs–oh, the sweet pleasures that feed my soul.
