Stuff I've bought...

Just got in the swanky new 2-disc set for The Band Wagon, a simply terrific Fred Astaire movie (it's the film the "That's Entertainment" song comes from), and the set for The Incredibles. The latter is a great film, but I really bought it because I got the Band Wagon from Amazon and you need to spend $25 to get free shipping. The fact that Amazon was selling The Incredibles for like 40% off certainly helped.

Both sets come in easily scuffed slip covers, the one for The Incredibles all shiny and hologram-y. Extras are extensive, including a Jack-Jack cartoon (I think it portrays the events, unseen in the main film, that drives the kid's babysitter away), some faux 'bloopers and outtakes'--standard now for animated films, some commentaries, deleted scenes, etc. One of the extras that really sold me though is a mock '70s cartoon show episode featuring Frozone, which comes with an in-character commentary by Frozone and Mr. Incredible.

The cover for Band Wagon is poorly designed, with a cutout box for the interior case's UPC symbol, so that it can be scanned at retail outlets. The edge of the cutout area abuts the spine, and is simply an invitation to tear the outer slip cover. The disc features a making-of doc, a doc on director Vicent Minnelli, an outtake musical number, and a musical short featuring co-star Jack Buchanan. Liza Minnelli (the director's daughter by Judy Garland) and Micheal Feinstein provide a commentary.

My latest purchase is "From Hell It Came". I finally found a DVD version of it.

As an aside, I first discovered Jabootu's Bad Movie Dimension while doing a search for the Tobanga (don't ask). Since then I've happily wiled away many an hour at work reading your reviews. First class stuff.

For The Incredibles, yeah "Jack Jack Attack" starts with the exact phone scene from teh movie with teh babysitter and concludes with Syndrome showing up (bookended with a cute scene). And the '70s cartoon is so well done even my four year old got the joke and laughed through the whole thing (I've now seen it more times than the movie).

However the bloopers are unfortunately real. And no matter how much laugh-track you add, rendering errors just aren't that funny.
