I already have poll questions for the next two weeks, one of them is dealing with body hair and is a little more controversial, although I am pretty sure I know the answer. So the controversy will have to wait.
The question of the week came up because I can’t recall anybody ever mentioning that they watch the DVD extras i.e directors’ comments, deleted scenes, actors’ bios, etc. I admit that if I like the movie I may look at deleted scenes or an alternate ending. I never (not once) had director’s comments on and may have looked at other extras less than 5 percent of the time. If extended cut is available I always select it but then it’s not an extra, because I am still watching the same movie just a longer version. I understand that there is plenty of space to fill on a DVD but why not fill it with some B-movie or whatever. I realize that many people who read this are self-professed geeks, so poll results will probably be skewed towards “yes”.
