Best DVD of February 2007

Which disc do you feel was the best overall DVD released in February2007?

Take into consideration the film, audio/video quality, and special features - NOT only the film!

If it had a superior transfer then maybe, but with the poor picture quality the first 10-15 minutes, no way.

I voted The Departed. My favorite movie of the year and a respectful DVD presentation.

49th Parallel: CC

It may not be on the same level as Michael Powell's later composed films, but it is certainly more than a propaganda film. The extras are excellent. I really enjoyed Powell's autobiography and it is great to have excerpts of the dictations on this dvd.

Honorable Mentions:
The Prestige
I cannot remember the last time I watched a dvd three times in one month.

The Departed
The film was not as effective as Infernal Affairs and most of Monahan's additions were unnecessary, but Scorsese on Scorsese is, without a doubt, one of the best extras of the year.

The Departed. "Scorsese on Scorsese'' is the doc everyone is talking about on this release, but the other extras are quality too.
