DVD Talk review of 'Drag Me to Hell [Unrated Director's Cut]'

I read Tyler Foster's DVD review of Drag Me to Hell [Unrated Director's Cut] at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=39260 and...

I find it retarded that you state nothing is worthwhile in the Xtras, but you give it 4 stars? What gets a 5 star? (Stills from the shoot)

Other than that the review was the same as almost every other site. This is a fun, romp horror flick.

I'm pretty sure I said something entirely different!

Despite some cornball, out-of-place "hosting" segments with Justin Long (his "profile" is much better), these add up to a surprisingly excellent look at the making of the movie, with funny, candid interviews with cast and crew, including Sam Raimi, Alison Lohman, Dileep Rao (who sounds like Jeremy Piven using his normal voice), Lorna Raver and the great Greg Nicotero of KNB Effects. These clips are packed with awesome B-roll material and a minimum of film footage, so rest assured that it's almost entirely worthwhile, highly-entertaining stuff.

Yeah, I get the impression that he read just the three words "The Extras Sadly" and skipped the rest of the Extras section of the review.

BTW, thanks for the part on the differences between the theatrical version and the unrated version. It's on its way to me from NetFlix and I probably would have just watched the unrated version once I played the disc if I had not read your review. Now I plan to watch the theatrical version and just check out the differences in the unrated version afterwards.
