DVD Review: Jack the Giant Slayer

Interestingly enough, I enjoyed "Jack the Giant Slayer" so much more on DVD than I did when watching it on the big screen last March. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood when I watched it then, but I found myself smiling most of the time during the movie this time around.

If you haven't read my movie review for "Jack the Giant Slayer" yet, you can find it here.



While the DVD menus aren't exactly amazing and are actually quite basic and simple overall, the deleted scene of the story about King Erik and the Giant is pretty amazing in itself. In fact, it would work really well as a bedtime story for your kids when you can't find the time to tell one yourself. ;)



The other deleted scenes are quite interesting, as well, and well worth the watch. There's one really good one on a bridge that reminded me of video games (Crash Bandicoot, in particular) and I'm not sure why they deleted it. I sorta wish there was a Director's Commentary with the DVD, so I can find out.



The gag reel is pretty awesome, too. You'll get to see the actors in a more light-hearted mood, which I always love, and you'll even get to see the famed green screen! :D Haha. Sorry. I'm a sucker for behind-the-scenes anythings when it comes to movies. :)

    5. Why do you want to win this DVD?
    Answer: I was so sad that I was not able to saw it on the big screen. I want to win the Jack the Giant Slayer DVD because of three reasons: first because it is a new version of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk that we all grow-up with. Second, I love the new look of the Giants, they are fiercer and more aggressive. And lastly, I just found how super hot and handsome, Nicholas Hoult is. I want to watch the movie over and over again with my family and friends at home. :)
