Please don't make fun of me for not knowing this, but I've rarely ever bought any kind of special edition type discs.

What exactly do you get extra with a steelbook? Or is it just something cool looking to have sitting on a shelf with other collectables?

It can be just fancy packaging...or sometimes they add something to it too. Varies. Just depends on what they decide with it.

Yeah, the DC version and commentary are good enough for me.

Considering how DVD extras are produced nowadays, there was no chance that this was getting a 1-2 hour making of documentary.

We're lucky we got a commentary from Gray, who never does commentaries, and that the studio let him edit a directors cut.

Saw this the other night and found it to be exceedingly mediocre and pedestrian.

Hits all the fan favorite beats in rapid succession, with very little connective tissue to hold the crowd pleaser moments together. Very standard biopic.

I will give the film credit for casting. It was uncanny how much these actors looked like their real life counterparts.

Amazon has $5 off if you pre-order the soundtrack and the movie by the 9th of this month. Just scroll down a bit on either of the items and you will see the details.

So apparently the director's cut is already on Itunes to watch 2 weeks before the physical release in stores. Has anyone seen it yet, and if so, was it worth it with the extra 20 minutes?

Watched the director's cut and thought it was very good. The second half kind of sank into standard biopic mode, but all in all, it was engrossing and very well acted.

Is there a breakdown of the differences in the director vs. theatrical cuts? I haven't seen anything online yet.

I hope it expands on the scenes that felt rushed towards the end of the movie. I also would like to know the differences before I buy the bluray.

The BluRay is out. How is the director's cut, which is unrated? Does the additional 20 minutes of footage help the movie. I believe that puts the running time at a little over 2 hours, 40 minutes.

Hoping the commentary is good as well.

First off don't bother with the Target steelbook, I returned two of them because the casing was broke. I haven't watched the whole movie yet, but it feels like mostly extended scenes.

Funny that this is the movie people bring up for the Oscars meltdown. This movie??????? This was a decent movie, no where near Oscar caliber.

Agreed 100%. I watched it yesterday, and while I enjoyed it, not once did I think anything about it was Oscar worthy.

Whatever. It got a best screenplay nomination, so there's that.
