I was young and had no responsibilities when I discovered that the only way to see Tombstone in its original aspect ratio was on DVD, so I went out and bought a DVD player for the express purpose of seeing a favorite movie the way it had been filmed. Shortly thereafter, I began to discover bonus features. These are ten of my personal favorite DVD and Blu-ray bonus features.
Sometimes I need to break the strain of a Crohn’s flare with a comedy. Sometimes I need something poignant to cut through the swath of mental stagnation. Every now and again, though, I just want a movie to take me somewhere else. I want to go somewhere I could actually be, but am not likely to actually go there for one reason or another. There are numerous movies that fit the bill, but I’d like to discuss a few favorites of mine from the last decade or so that I think really speak to the concept of a movie’s environment being the appeal.
