Okay, so you saw the new, Keanu-tastic remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still, and were... underwhelmed, apparently. What to do? First, write director Scott Derrickson a nasty letter. (Hint: Mention Hellraiser: Inferno.) Second, go rent (or buy) the Two-Disc Special Edition of the original movie, which any sci-fi fan will tell you is a classic that changed the game and still has relevance today. While a film noir 1950s sci-fi flick may not have the same kind of mass appeal Keanu Reeves has, sci-fi fans will find that the new edition has some great additional featurettes that previous versions do not. But new or old, several of the extras on this disc are also hysterically, hysterically funny.
One of the perks of getting a full series all in one package is the added bonus features -- usually added in the form of an extra disc (or even multiple discs). The other major perk is the fancier, and usually space-saving, packaging. The 4400: The Complete Series definitely benefits from the added bonus features, though the packaging is pretty standard material. The packaging is slick enough to make four seasons take up a lot less space in your DVD collection, but the liner notes leave something to be desired. They're a one-fold design, and the only information about the set is on the inside (the front and back cover are both decorative). So the writing is tiny, and all it tells us is the names of the episodes, a short description of each (including "With commentary" for those that have commentary), and then "Special Features," with no description of what special features are included on each disc until the final bonus disc. Well, guess we'll have to go digging...
