Disc 1: 1.5 out of 5 stars
Disc 2: 3.5 out of 5 stars
When I got approached to review this DVD, I thought it was a documentary focuses on the titles sequence of various films. I think that would have been a really cool idea for a film. Unfortunately I was wrong. Disc 1 is basically just 38 film titles back to back with no description or explanation. I would have like a little bit of narrative in between each title. They could have gotten interviews from each of the title creators. THEN, I would have liked to have each title available to view separately. Basically you do not really need to watch disc 1, you should just visit http://watchthetitles.com/. Instead of being limited to 38 titles you can view over 160 titles with more being added frequently. Don’t get me wrong some of the titles they choose are decent but without the proper introductions and narration, it felt like it was a waste. The website gives a lot of information about each title, so I guess I would say “Skip the DVD, Visit the Website”.
Disc two is a little bit better since it actually has interviews with some of the title designers. There are only 9 interviews on the disc and but each one is about 10 minutes, so we get about 90 minutes. I think what they should have done with this set is expand the contents of this disc into a more documentary feature and include disc 1 as just special features. Most of the interviewees, you will not know by name but you will know them the films. Nic Benns & Miki Kato worked on “30 Days of Night”. Stephan Burle & Jarik van Sluijs worked on “Push”. Michael Riley worked on “The Back-Up Plan” and “Gattaca”. Kook Ewo worked on “Splice” and “Silent Hill”. Richard Morrison worked on “Sweeney Todd” and “Batman”. Kook Ewo and Richard Morrison were easily my favorite interviews to watch. Overall all were interested but I was left wanted more.
