Ok well I was supposed to get my Target 3-Disc DVD Sat on the street date as guaranteed when I pre-ordered… but no I did not get it. I did not get it until TUE the 23rd, which was my birthday… another year o… another year, lets leave it at that. ANYWAYS moving along…
The film cell is pretty cool, I am a photographer so to me it was cool. I scanned it in, here is the one I got, the first version is the way it scanned in, more of a blueish tone. The 2nd one is a screen cap of the DVD playing on my computer, and the 3rd one is another attempt at a scan and an attempt in photoshop to match the colors to the DVD screencap:
1st Scan Attempt Blueish Tone.
This is a screencap of the DVD playing on my computer.
This is the 2nd scan, and then tweaked in photoshop to try and match the color of the DVD screencap.
It makes me wonder what the real true look was, and how many filters they ran on the movie to get the tones they wanted. But anyways moving along to the DVD. I saw the deleted scenes and the Interview with the Volturi, both of which was great. I soo cannot wait til Eclipse.
Well ok, so since I pre-ordered from Target for $26.99 which was the most I ever paid for a DVD, BUT I knew it would drop and with the lowest price match guarantee I pre-ordered. I don’t know if I will do that again. For Twilight I did not pre-order, well I did… long story short I took it back the next day on the bus, then got a ride from the mall where I took it back and went to get the Target 3-Disc and they had plenty. I thought that since it had a street date delivery gaurantee then I had nothing to lose, I’d get it on Sat. when it was released and not even have to go anywhere… well WRONG, as I said above I did not get it until the 23rd. What I did do Fri night / Sat morning was go to my local Walmart’s DVD release party… if you could call it that. My sister, my niece, and two of my nephews went to Walmart hoping to snag some free give aways or something.
When we got there, there was already a line so we got in it. We were not getting the DVD but we got in line anyways. I saw a lot of people with these giveaway items and I wanted one. I got one, but man the process there, the whole thing there was such crap. The head lady there was a real bitch, & they were so rude and nasty. I did win a Edward water bottle and got the freebee picture and cards they were handing out after 3 times asking if they were going to pass anymore out. We asked and they said, “yeah we’re going through the line again later.” And then ignored me. My nephew asked later and they told him no, that people in the front already had them passed out to them and they have to give some to others. We were near the front only because people left. We didnt have any bags or anything to hide anything we might have gotten, but we had nothing because we were given nothing. THEN I ask again and she’s like, “oh we ran out there was only 100.” So I walk away, then she comes over like 5 minutes later, “oh I found some extra.” WHATEVER, total lie. So rude I’m never going to a Walmart release for anything. I got my 3 Disc Target edition but annoyed there was no Digital copy. Last year’s Twilight was 3 discs and a digital copy, so a bit annoyed they didn’t this year.
I can make my own digital copy by ripping the movie off my DVD so whatever, but still they should have included one, I already bought the DVD, might as well give us a digital copy. I’ve not had a chance to see the other extra’s because of school and work but come Friday I will, and when I do I’ll post what I think about the DVD features.
