Weekend Weigh-in: Do You Still Watch Special Features?
Once upon a time, special features like deleted scenes and commentary tracks were the kind of added value content that would convince us to drop $100 on a laserdisc. Now pretty much every movie that comes out on DVD and Blu-ray has bonus content. You can hear Shawn Levy's thoughts on making The Internship and watch behind-the-scenes footage for Gangster Squad. Has the proliferation of special features devalued the experience for you?
Now that everything has bonus content, do you still find the time to work your way though it? If so, what are some of your favorites -- are there discs you would recommend just based on the quality of the special features?
