Mask: DC thoughts
anyone get this yet?
i'm kind of torn about it. for those that didn't know, the primary change to the film is that the Bob Seger music has been replaced with some Bruce Springsteen stuff, as per the director's original intention (apparently, they couldn't get the proper permissions to use the Springsteen songs back when the film first came out. they just recently secured those permissions, thus this new release).
now, i love Springsteen, but i also like Seger's stuff, and i'm used to Seger's songs being in those scenes. not having Seger there doesn't necessarily hurt the film in terms of its emotional impact. you just kind of notice when there's a scene where the music has been replaced. it kind of draws you out of the story for a second.
i guess i've just seen this movie too many times. someone who's seen it only a couple times probably wouldn't notice the change.
anyway, what do you guys think?
