Michael Blowhard on DVD extras and commentaries:

I wonder if a new category of film is emerging: the film that isn't all that fabulous in its own right, but whose DVD package makes for a rewarding experience. So far, I've run across three examples.
While the idea of fighting the War on Terror is right and necessary, the name itself has been lacking from the get-go. It just doesn't quite fit and it's not quite enough. A few days ago, the Weekly Standard remarked on a Bush administration trial balloon, where several Defense Department suits renamed the conflict from the Global War on Terror (GWOT)--or The War Against Terror (TWAT) or what have you--to the Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism (GSAVE). Ugh.
And last, but not least, NOTM Gizoogled.
