    This Snow White DVD is also a bit odd...it has these loooooong gaps of dead air between choices. Hit the audio set-up button, for instance, and you get a black screen that seems to hang there for ages before you're transferred to the section you asked for. Looks like a DVD defect or shoddy engineering. Weird. None of my other Disney DVDs act like that.



    I'm going to be completely honest here. It's really up to you to research what the extras are if THAT'S what you're buying them for.

    I love Disney animation and I too LOVE extras, but when I know that they're skimping down to save up for a later release, I'll just wait with them.

    I saved countless dollars, grief, and thread space that way. I recommend you do the same.

    I don't plan on buying any more Disney DVDs anyway. I have the "Walt" classics - Snow White, Pinocchio, Lady and the Tramp - and some of the lesser movies - Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Lion King - so there's no need to invest any further. Especially given the organization as it is today. Why would I want to support that?

    You call it an investment. I call it buying the stuff I enjoy.

    Re: VERY disappointed with "extras" on Snow White DVD

    The only 'extra' I watch is the 'Making of...' feature. All the other stuff is bonus.

    Re: VERY disappointed with "extras" on Snow White DVD

    Well on the Snow White Blu-Ray they had a quiz to find out which Disney princess you were. That was fun, but I don't remember what else was on there. I liked the extras for the Blu-Ray of Pinocchio.

    They had the studios feature as well, that IMO was VERY well done.

    Re: VERY disappointed with "extras" on Snow White DVD

    I bought the Snow White Bluray. I doubt I've watched all of the extras yet, but I enjoyed the ones I watched. I buy a movie because I want to go back to the movie again and again. I also teach film, so having a bunch of DVDs I can turn to is helpful. There are LOTS of extras I've enjoyed in the past. The "making of" feature on At World's End is epic in terms of how much depth it goes into showing the massive logistics that it takes to make some films. On "LA Confidential" the extra showing Curtis Hansen's pitch for the film is pretty great.

    Buy a movie for the movie, the extras should just be a side benefit.

    Re: VERY disappointed with "extras" on Snow White DVD

    Disney wants to push the blue ray, more than likely from a financial contribution from Sony, so it makes sense that they are starting to skimp on the bonus content on the current DVD releases, and saving all the 'good stuff' for the blue ray disc.

    Research though shows that at this point, 'bonus added content' is rarely watched, and hardly ever a deciding factor in DVD purchase choices. Hell, most people are still confused about Pan & Scan vs. Letterbox.

    My suggestion, look on eBay for the previous DVD issue of Snow White. The bonus content on that release was great (though the Barbara Streisand bit was, just OK)

    Personally, I love that stuff, especially the deleted scenes and the behind-the-scenes segments. I've loved it ever since I was a kid and watched all the Making Of specials on TV.
