The other night I decided to pull out one of my DVDs that I hadn't yet watched, figuring I'd just check out the special features since it was already after 10pm and I shouldn't stay up too late since I had to work in the morning.
I put the Glory special edition DVD in ye olde DVD player and um . . . didn't get to sleep 'til 2:30am.
The thing is, Glory is one of my all-time favorite movies. And I hadn't watched it in a long time. And there were a lot of extras on thedisc. First I thought I'd check out just the deleted scenes, but then I wanted to look at some of the documentaries (there are three on the disc) and then I was curious about the picture-in-picture commentary track.
Um. And it's cool. Video (and audio, of course) commentary from Edward Zwick (who directed the film) and Morgan Freeman and Matthew Broderick (who both acted in it). So maybe I watched the whole thing with the video commentary.
There's another audio-only commentary from Zwick and I managed to turn off the DVD player before starting that. Barely. And of course I want to watch the movie once sans commentary, too. And I never did finish all of the documentaries . . .
I'm studiously avoiding the DVD player tonight. 'Course I've a Tivo chock full of stuff. And then there are the 96 episodes of Hogan's Heroes I taped a couple of weekends ago . . . (you think I'm kidding).
