400TH POST SPECIAL! Blu-ray Collection Update!

20200615_015732_HDR

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! If you like things that are predictable, sorry, this post is not for you. Although at the same time, this is a little unpredictable for me. Because as of now, Scene Before has 400 currently active posts. Why am I calling this predictable? Well, this 400th post special is going to be similar to other post specials, specifically where I show off my Blu-ray collection. My Blu-ray collection has sort of become a staple of my life, even in a time where physical media is less relevant compared to digital streaming.

You may ask, do I stream? Occasionally. I pay for Prime Video and HBO Max, I will watch something On Demand through my cable, and I’ve used Crackle a couple times. But for the most part, when I’m in control of my content, I’m usually using physical media. Is it more expensive? Sometimes. But it’s also more satisfying given how I am the owner of my content and I don’t have anybody corporate overlords potentially taking it away from me.

Nevertheless, this year, I have decided to show you my latest updates to my collection, which without giving everything away, includes a bunch of the latest movies from 2019, some Steelbooks, and a good number of 4K Blu-rays. Have I seen all the movies? No. Some are still in the wrap, some have not been watched yet, and to be truthful, there are one or two I do not think I’ll be putting in my player anytime soon. Just because I own a movie doesn’t mean I like it. Maybe I watched the movie, found out through watching it that it was bad, never sold it, or I am a loyalist and have to pick it up for some reason (I’m looking at you, “Star Wars”).

Enjoy my all new and admittedly, utterly insane (you will find out why), Blu-ray collection video, featured on my YouTube channel!

Hollywood, We Need to Talk About Film “Rereleases” and “Alternate Cuts”

mv5bodk1ote3mtetnty0yi00mtm1ltg1zjatmde1zmu2zgrhzwvhxkeyxkfqcgdeqxvynjczote0mzm40._v1_

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! Remember how “Avengers: Endgame” became the biggest film in history? Well, some may argue that it couldn’t have gotten to that point without one thing, putting a new version of the film in theaters! I remember back in June we were getting advertisements for the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame” rerelease, signifying there would be new content to witness. Granted, I already knew what audiences were in for. It’s the exact same movie, but with end credits content that audiences didn’t get to see originally. I still roll my eyes to this day that the marketing team decided to market this as a rerelease to begin with because THE FILM WAS STILL IN THEATERS BEFORE THIS HAPPENED! I figured this would be a one time thing. Granted, “Avatar” did a rerelease back in the day with extended content, but for one thing, that was a different version of the film, and it was already out on DVD.

I was able to personally let “Endgame” slide. After all, it ended up being the king of the box office as an effect. But then came August, and apparently “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was joining the party on this!

Now, I will give some credit to “Spider-Man: Far From Home” in regards to their actions during this rerelease game plan. Why? Because they at least called it the “extended cut.” This cut featured additional footage that wasn’t seen when this film originally came out, so ultimately, this wasn’t a “Spider-Man 2,” it was a “Spider-Man 2.1.”

Wait a minute…

Coincidentally, on the same weekend “Spider-Man: Far From Home” came out with its alternate cut, another movie which, believe it or not, came out at the same time as Spidey’s original cut, “Midsommar,” was doing the same thing. “Midsommar” came out with what was marketed as the “Director’s Cut.” This different cut included extended and new scenes.

I will point out, for those who are not in the know, these “rereleases” and “alternate editions” are not a new thing. “Blade Runner” has had multiple releases in various forms including “The Director’s Cut” and “The Final Cut.” The “Lord of the Rings” franchise, including installments of “The Hobbit,” would eventually release an “extended edition” on DVD of each film. And “Star Wars” has been putting out redos of the original trilogy in 1997, 2004, and 2011.

But here’s the difference, everyone behind these movies are not putting these out only a couple of months after they originally went into theaters! I don’t know how the average moviegoer feels about this, but if I had to judge from my perspective, it sort of is beginning to remind me of a path that the video game industry seems to follow. Back in the day, you would pay full price for a game, and you get the entire game. Nowadays if you typically want to buy a video game, you have to not only pay $60 if it is a big name title, but on top of that, you have all these additional downloads, in-game currencies, packs, those sorts of things! I remember I would play a lot of NBA 2K back in the day, everything I needed was included! Now, if you want the good stuff, you might as well sell your soul! This is why I refuse to buy what seems to be a pay to win-oriented NBA 2K20! If I wanted to gamble, I’d go to Vegas for crying out loud!

Movie tickets are not as expensive as video games (although if you are buying popcorn and bringing a family along, I might take that back), but it is still not cheap. The average price of a movie ticket in 2019 is $9.01, which as far as my area is concerned, is actually kind of a bargain. Where I live, specifically eastern Massachusetts, I’m usually paying somewhere in the double digits for one ticket each time I go see a movie. It could be worse, but it is certainly something that can warrant a slight complaint.

I don’t mind seeing the same movie twice in the theater. I’ve done that with a number of a titles throughout my life because a lot of them happened to be very good and perhaps worth a rewatch. But it never felt like in any of those scenarios that the studio was robbing me. I was seeing the exact same film, just at a different time.

I guess there is a curiosity factor that can come out of an extended cut or something like that. What if there’s a scene that makes the movie better? But at the same time, an extended cut of “Far From Home” feels cheap because I just saw the original.

I am not worried about this right now, but I honestly think this has the potential of becoming the next big trend in moviegoing. Audiences see a movie, and since Hollywood is running out of ideas, someone thinks, “Let’s show the same thing two months later!” Now if this is a way for the director to get out a version that they would have preferred releasing as opposed to the original, then I can approve. However, why couldn’t we have just seen that version in the first place? As a moviegoer, I want to see the next new thing as opposed to seeing studios perhaps making me obligated to see their product again because “it’s my duty.”

I just don’t want to see a future where all of our movies lose their individuality. It seems kind of pointless and just an excuse to make more money. Even if these extended editions do end up somehow being better than their original counterparts, it manages to give me this vibe that certain movies are overstaying their welcome. Who knows? Maybe this will simply be a 2019 fad that will wash away over time, but I am hoping for the sake of individuality, not to mention moviegoers’ wallets, that we don’t give into Hollywood studios putting out a bunch of changed products. And you know what? Let me just put it this way…

I make a bunch of movie reviews for Scene Before. One of them by the end of the year is inevitably going to be for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Let’s say I see that movie, review it, and give my thoughts on it. How would you feel? After wasting about 5-10 minutes of reading that, that I announce, “Hold your horses! Stay tuned for this February where I release the EXTENDED EDITION of this review!” Granted, if I went ahead and made a spoiler talk that is one thing, because I’d intentionally make the review filled with spoilers, but what if I came out with the exact same wording, phrases, and paragraph structures as I did in that original review, but I sprinkle tiny new bits and pieces? Wouldn’t you feel like I snatched your dignity and thrown it out the window?

So please, Hollywood… Stop grinding my gears.

Thanks for reading this post! This weekend is the release of “IT: Chapter Two.” As for whether or not I’m seeing it, that will be up for debate. And I just want to let everyone know that next week I’ll be heading back to college for the fall semester, so if you see me posting a tad less than usual, that could be a reason why. However, this all depends on the workload, so we’ll see what happens. I am not planning on losing my commitment to Scene Before, so I will do my best to stick to doing at least one post a week. I will do my best to cover topics that stand out and focus on big or important movies coming out. After all, …Oscar season is upon us. Be sure to follow Scene Before either with an email or WordPress account so you can stay tuned for more great content! I want to know, what are your thoughts on these alternate editions of films? Or, have you seen the recently put out versions of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” or “Midsommar?” Let me know down below! Scene Before is your click to the flicks!

300TH POST SPECIAL! June 2019 Blu-ray Collection Update!

IMG_20190601_000539_738

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! Well, whaddya know? It’s post 300! If you remember around the time of my 200th post, I did an analysis of my Blu-ray collection. Now we have reached a total of 300 and with that in mind, we have an update to go through. Last Spring we have gone through my ENTIRE Blu-ray collection only to realize… They’re a hell of a drug for me. We live in an era where “Netflix and Chill” seems to be the cool and hip thing to say, but the reality is, I just like the feeling of having something and knowing that a studio or service is not going to take away my right of viewing it after awhile. We live in one hell of a time where everything is at our fingertips, but I’m old fashioned. I’m 19 years old, and I already feel like that old man complaining to my grandchildren about the ways things used to be and that sort of thing.

“Back in my day, we went to this thing called a store, where we bought cases, that you had to pick up with your own hands. And it was like a Tamagotchi, you had to take care of it. You had to store it on shelf space, and when you wanted to watch it, you had to physically maneuver yourself to a media player. And hopefully, the disc wasn’t scratched! Swell times!”

No, seriously, even though I know there is a market for physical media out there, this is the way I feel right now. But who cares? Because it is time to dive into the collection.

Before getting into the collection however, I would like to point out something. This is for my Blu-ray collection ONLY, so while I do own a number of DVDs, they will not count. Blu-ray is my main physical medium, which is part of why I continue to collect it to this day. And yes, this will include 4K discs, because those are technically under the Blu-ray label.

Also, instead of what I did last time, which is simply listing everything I’ve collected, I am making the choice to record a video showing off the collection in detail. I feel like it would provide a more immersive experience instead of me just telling you what I have. Anyway, hope you enjoy the video!

I just want to say, I tried uploading this video directly to this WordPress page, but unfortunately it wouldn’t go through. However, if you want to see more from my YouTube channel (which does not really have much to do with movies), click the link below and subscribe!

Thanks for checking this out, and I will remind everyone that coming soon I have my review for “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” which… Oooh boy. That’s gonna be a fun review. Just you wait. Be sure to follow Scene Before either with an email or WordPress account so you can stay tuned for more great content! I want to know, do you still buy Blu-rays? Samsung just recently stopped making Blu-ray players, which according to a lot of people, seems to signify *the end of physical media*. I think it has *at least* ways to go, but if that end comes soon, I am gonna be a mess. But hey! This may be worth something one day, so who knows? Let me know down below! Scene Before is your click to the flicks!

Complete Blu-Ray Movie Collection! Scene Before’s NOT EXACTLY 200TH POST SPECIAL!

20180614_145324_HDR20180614_154140_HDR

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! If you had read my review for the all new comedy “Tag,” you may have noticed me saying that post is the two-hundredth I’ve ever done on Scene Before (aside from one that has been deleted). The day before that review was posted, the sign of the number 200 was on the rise. I wasn’t even aware of it all that much until that moment. But I felt the need to put out early reviews for “Incredibles 2” and “Tag” because, I don’t know, first world problems I guess. So if I were to do a special post for my 200 mark, this would be it. As you read in the title, this is going a be a complete Blu-ray movie collection glance. Now let me just go over something before we dive any further into the list of movies I own, this is a BLU-RAY movie collection. So each copy I go over must at least have one Blu-ray disc in it, so while I do have a number of DVD only copies of certain films, those don’t have Blu-ray discs, and therefore you won’t be seeing any of those things on this list. Also, for each Blu-ray, I will be stating not only the title of the copy or movie I own, I will also be stating if it comes with a DVD or digital copy code. It doesn’t matter whether a disc is missing or a code has expired, I’m mentioning what the case suggests. Special editions of Blu-ray such as 3D and 4K will also be included, partially considering how each one of the 4K and 3D copies I possess also comes with a standard Blu-ray disc as well, and they are technically part of the Blu-ray realm. Let me just state that this is a movie collection, so there won’t be any TV shows here, I don’t have many TV Blu-rays, so that sort of collection would be kind of pointless. Also, I’ll remind you, not sure why I’m reminding you of this, but I feel it’s necessary, this is in blog format, as opposed to how some others do this, which is in video format, so it’s not like I’m going to be showing you each case one-by-one and telling you some sort of story. Without further ado, let’s start the list!

I will say for those who actually follow me on other areas of the digital universe aside from here, this is not really my first time this year doing a Blu-ray collection glance. The other time was a little over a month ago on the livestreaming service Periscope. While I managed to get every single one of the copies I had at the time into the video, I feel it wasn’t exactly what one would call quality content, because the way I store some of my movies makes them really hard to get out and it just wastes time. Maybe if I were doing it on some place where you can see the video edited such as YouTube that sort of thing would have worked out better, but hey, I got it done. I feel that showing my Blu-rays this way as opposed to Periscope would have been better because you don’t have to deal with as much cringe (hopefully) and plus you don’t have to watch me pull out every single one of my movies. As you can see in my pictures, I’ve done all the work already! I almost forgot some if you look at the photo containing a smaller amount of movies, and those make up part of my exclusive and special editions. They’re in a place I never check, which is why I almost forgot them. By the way, I can assure you that I got each and every Blu-ray I own which just so happens to be part of my collection in the opening pictures. If I missed a Blu-ray on the list, that only means it’s in the pictures! I’m hoping I can get each and every copy on the list, however, this task is not as easy as I would hope.

Thanks for reading this post! I do plan on doing this again sometime in the future, maybe when I hit 300 posts or if I get enough followers or requests, we’ll see. Also be sure to check out my reviews for “Incredibles 2” and “Tag!” If you’re currently reading this, you can actually click the red icon that has the word “Tag” in it, which will take you right over to my “Tag” review. However, I don’t have one of those for “Incredibles 2” in this post, so if you are interested, check out the link below! Stay tuned for more great content! I want to know, do you collect any physical media? Blu-rays? DVDs? VHSs? I’ll even consider video games if you want me to. Or, what is your favorite item in my collection? Let me know down below! Also, if you want to hear more about my Blu-ray collection or certain items in said collection, let me know! Maybe I’ll dedicate a separate post to that! Scene Before is your click to the flicks!
