1.0 out of 5 stars Wasted opportunity... Two discs worth of nothing!, August 13, 2010
This review is from: Flashdance (Special Collector's Edition w/ Bonus CD) (DVD)
I wasted my money upgrading from the single disc, first edition dvd of Flashdance to get this 2-disc "Special" edition thinking it would be full of extra content, but instead was full of something else. With Flashdance being the phenomena that it was, I totally expected Paramount to go all out and make this the ultimate Flashdance experience (similar to the VIP treatment that weaker films like Showgirls even seems to receive), but no dice. There must be tons of Flashdance info to really pack two discs. The hour long VH-1 Behind the Move - Flashdance episode would've been perfect to include on this dvd set, as it provided a thorough look at the making, the music and impact of this blockbuster smash. And since Paramount owns MTV/VH-1, it would've been a no brainer. And to make matters worse is the funky six-song sampler they tossed in to make up disc two. They couldn't even give you the whole soundtrack. This is exactly why dvds aren't selling like they used to.
