DVD Journal Top 10

The DVD Journal has posted their list of the top 10 DVDs released in 2005. I was suprised to see that Team America: World Police made it into the top 10. I didn’t care much for this film but I seem to be in the minority here. Most of the people that I’ve talked to found it to be hilarious.

Glad to see François Truffaut’s Jules and Jim listed here. The Criterion Collection almost always releases interesting films with great extras. The two disc set of Jules and Jim is no exception. It is packed with extras and also includes a few essay’s about the film.

Some of the DVD releases that didn’t make the top 10 include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Browning Version and A Very Long Engagement.

Martin Scorsese’s documentary No Direction Home was also on the short list. I don’t know, I watched this Bob Dylan doc last week and wasn’t impressed. I thought D.A. Pennebaker’s Dont Look Back (1967) was much more interesting. This is probably why Scorsese uses a lot of footage from Dont Look Back in his own film.
