Great, Great Movie

by Reece on 4/13/2007

Most likely my favorite movie, You'd like this movie if... well if you are a teacher or work in the school system or if you just enjoy coming of age films.(like moi) The picture, cinematography and music of this movie are my favorites, though this Special Edition...well isn't all that "special" you just get a nicer menu, a short little documentary and some, dare I say, dull deleted scenes. (I have seen several scenes that were cut from the film and was hoping they'd be included on this Special Editon.. they were not.) There is also only about 10 chapters, where as the original DVD had much more (fewer chapters does seem to make a difference) If you already have this movie on dvd (like i do) I wouldn't recommend making the upgrade to this Special Editon (though I did) Unless you are a die hard fan (like I am) and care about drawn out one angled deleted scenes(which i don' though one scene does show what the others did after the play that night. But hey it's up to you.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Dead Poets Society is a collection of pious platitudes masquerading as a courageous stand in favor of something: doing your own thing, I think. It's about an inspirational, unconventional English teacher and his students at "the best prep school in America" and how he challenges them to question conventional views by such techniques as standing on their desks. It is, of course, inevitable that the brilliant teacher will eventually be fired from the school, and when his students stood on their desks to protest his dismissal, I was so moved, I wanted to throw up.
