a film been so aptly named. Disaster Movie is undoubtedly one of
the worst major motion picture films this reviewer has ever experienced. The film from beginning to end seemed to be
suggesting it was making a serious Hollywood comedy, but all I could think was
this can’t be real. Just like Epic Movie, Date Movie, Meet the
Spartans, and the recent Superhero
Movie; this film was disgustingly bad.
No, it was not disgusting as in a ‘gross-out flick,’ but rather it was
so bad that it could in fact induce vomiting.
Also after viewing this film it is curious as how the studio could even
make Superhero Movie, because this
film features idiotic versions of Hellboy,
Iron Man, The Hulk, Batman, and even Hancock. These films can’t still be making money can
they? Are people still going to the
theater and seeing this dribble? Well if
you are STOP and if you haven’t seen these films, stay far, far away from them
on home video. It is amazing that even
B-listers like Kim Kardashian and Carmen Electra would even lend their name and
limited abilities to these films; I thought they had a little common
sense. I guess I was wrong.
has little to no storyline. I guess it
can be best summed up as a bunch of moronic, nonsensical friends (or
acquaintances) are trying to make it across a city on the brink of disaster. Along the way the team meets a number of
interesting characters that were taken right from the big screen of 2007/2008’s
major motion pictures with no true rhyme or reason. Even a crushed to death Hannah Montana makes
an appearance. All in all Disaster Movie is a horrible film with
technical features on this disaster of a movie are much better than the actual
film. The picture on the Blu-ray is
presented in a widescreen 1080p High Definition. The film features a crisp image with solid
black, but has the occasional color and contrast issues. The sound on the Blu-ray is presented in a
English 7.1 DTS HD Master Audio (MA) lossless mix that uses the soundstage
surprisingly well with ever ‘boom’ and fart noise coming across wonderfully
clear with nice directionality.
is presented in a 1.78 X 1 Widescreen with 5.1 Dolby Digital EX Audio as well
an optional 2.0 Dolby Digital Audio. The
picture and sound, as compared to the Blu-ray, are quite a downgrade but not
bad. The colors are adequate and sound
projects nicely, but neither is as encompassing as the Blu-ray’s features.
extras featured on both the DVD and Blu-ray include Bonus View
Picture-in-Picture Cast and Crew Commentary, “Girl Fight,” “High School
Musical” Sing-Along, “I’m F-ing Matt Damon” Sing-Along, “Sitting Down with a
Standup,” “G-Thangs Tour,” Straight From the Ladies, Who’s Spoofing Who?
Featurette, “This is How We Do It.”
MoLog is an additional feature that is probably the only one worth
mentioning on the set that allows the viewer to insert and animate objects
right into the film. I would rather just
hit the delete key.
