Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition (1978) [Jan. 11th, 2005|10:45 pm]
Sauce1977


I love K-Mart.

I went to buy another DVD rack, and I noticed they had this special "Ultimate" edition of the Romero classic. The price tag read $39.99, and I thought to myself, well, the price is right!

I purchased my goods and left for Burger King for a quick fat injection. As I waited for my Double Whopper combo, I read over my K-Mart bill. They had registered the product in their system for $34.99.

After I returned home, I checked online . . . the cheapest prices for new copies of this edition sell for 38 bucks. This isn't the cheapest version of this movie box set . . . apparently, Circuit City has great difficulty in some areas with their pricing system, as well.

Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition.


I'm looking forward to the 4th disc, which is a set of documentaries on the film. Also, I'm pretty sure that I've watched the longer American version, but I'm not sure if I've watched the "Ultimate" (read: 137-every-scrap-minute) edition.

Plus, it comes with a swanky lil' cheap-o comic book, too.


Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition.


I can't really decide which Romero film is my favorite . . . however, it always teeters between Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. Martin is pretty creepy, too.

However, I do know that this image is pretty frickin' ridiculous:


Eye-Sore!


I'm alive and well. I start to train for work on this next Monday, and I recovered from a long time with a cold . . . however, I did give my cold back to Heidi. Also, my birthday's in about one week. I don't feel 28, and if I make it, I probably won't feel 68, 88, or 108. I'm keepin' it real . . . I'm always four years old in my spirit.

Wheee!

Picture Time!

I honestly don't think in images, that when Sports meet ALL YOUR BASE, that it gets any better than this:

ALL YOUR BASE BELONG TO RANDY MOSS.

Yeah, I know you've peeped this one already, Chris. :D

Still the fact you thought it up, took that 30 minutes to apply it then took more time prolly to post it on the internet is too much time on one saucys hand :)

The extras are the documentaries and some home movies while on the set.

That is the 4th disc . . . the Ultimate version will probably be the only one I'll actually watch in my lifetime.

First documentary: The Dead Will Walk . . . awesome.

All of those folks . . . wow, they're aged! It's hard to believe that 1978 was such a long time in the past . . . I remember when 1990 was freaking amazing . . . the future!!

Tom Savini admits that if it wasn't for Dawn of the Dead, in his estimation, he may not have been chosen for his work on Friday the 13th.

I really didn't realize that Savini was influenced by his work during the Vietnam War . . . he used the carnage of reality as his bar for realism in his special effects-work.

2nd documentary . . . not so hot.

It was okay . . . however, it was 1.5 hours and a 'stay-fresh' date of 1989. Some of the material was covered in the first documentary . . . redundancy.

At least I was able to put together a DVD rack!

i only have the classic DVD version of Dawn. Ive owned about 3 different copies of that movie and now it looks like its gonna be 4 because now i have to have the ultimate version. I have a special place in my heart for Romero because most of his movies were filmed practically right in my backyard. My mom was born in Braddock (where Martin was filmed) and i used to live about a mile from Monroeville Mall. Im glad Romero hasnt been forgotten because he definitly re-invented the horror genre and made it even BETTER!

There's something to be said for a man who desires to do things in an unorthodox way . . . he cuts his film and edits his own way, writes the scripts, directs . . . I really don't feel that auteur is the right way for everyone, however, he's attempted and succeeded at it.

Most folks would take Romero's path to success and understand that he was extremely fortunate. His talent is unquestionable, but the path he chose has a high failure rate on average . . . to me, that makes him a huge legend.

Props to all of those who worked on that film. It still fascinates me to this day.

That's awesome!

I hope he has pie.

Otherwise, there will be folks that will keep their forks . . . only to discover that there's no pie.
