After seeing this film in December i have been waiting for the DVD release. Like all DVD releases i want to see what kind of fun extras it might include. Making of? Interviews with my favorite directors? Great commentary tracks?
Slumdog Millionaire came out on DVD today so i rushed out to pick up a copy and view the film again. I went to Target and bought a copy that came with a copy of the shooting script which is fantastic. I read a portion at Borders today. I thought, "This DVD release is going to be great and have features that cause me to love the film even more"
On the back of the box it says,
12 deleted scenes
commentary track w/ D. Boyle
(Dont you just love the, "and more" crap. That usually means it sucks and they dont want to tell you what it is.
But hey a making of and a commentary track are enough for me. I get home and pop the movie in, then go right to the features.
WTF? trailers? Where are my special features? I click through everything possible to try and find my making of crap. Its no where to be found!
I think well maybe i at least have a commentary track in the "Audio options" section. Nothing! This is complete bull crap!
This DVD is from the slums
I kid you not i looked through every menu on this piece of crap DVD! The Special features add up to a total of 4 trailers i can see online for free. I hate you Target! or Fox! who ever is responsible for giving be a bull crap DVD release.
The Film is amazing but i got screwed on my DVD release. Let me know if this happens to you.
