Collector's Edition

Old Boy (SE) - November 14

One of JoBlo's favorite flicks of last year, possibly because the subject of incest fascinates him to an unhealthy degree, on a purely sociological level of course. Scope out the man's review HERE. The triple disc special edition is loaded with tons and tons of cool shit and should satisfy anyone with a taste for revenge and live squid.

Disc Two:

  • Ten Deleted Scenes with optional commentary
  • Featurettes:
    • Making The Film
    • Production Design
    • The Music Score
    • CGI
    • Flashback
    • Le Grand Prix at Cannes
  • Cast & Crew
Disc Three:
  • The Autobiography of Oldboy - Video diary chronicling each day of the film's production
  • 35mm film frame in a collector's car
  • The original 212-page Japanese Manga graphic novel
  • Metal tin case

"Haha, missed me, you p*ssies!"

Van Wilder (SE) - November 28

Well, there already was a special edition but I guess someone decided that another was KEY. Maybe that someone is Van Wilder's own, Tara Reid saying, "Hey, I sucked in this movie too! Now let's get a drink!" Hey Tara, slow down, baby. All in due time. I have no idea what the "Drunken Idiot Kommentary" is but when you start mispeling words, I totaly shut down and don't giv a shit. Not to mention, I didn't give a shit the first time around. Ryan Reynolds is pimp though.


  • "Drunken Idiot Kommentary"
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Outtakes
  • Comedy Central's Reel Comedy Special
  • Burly Bear TV Specials (Half Baked, Impostor, Movie Junky)
