The new DVD has 2 pages of features. The first is fluffy ****, mostly culled from EPK material for not only the first but also the second M:I film. The spy museum piece is cool, but it's only a couple of minutes long.
Aside from a couple of trailers, the second page is nothing but Tom's loveletter to himself. It's absolutely ****ing embarrassing, but also hilarious.
Excellence in Film: Cruise
Yes you read that correctly, this is actually a featurette on the disc, and it's all about how wonderful Tom Cruise is. It's an 8 minute long montage of snippets from what I believe is every film he's ever made. They are all "hero shots" or dramatic speeches. He must have paid a fortune for the use of all this stuff. At the end of his 8-minute whack-off, the screen goes black, then large white text says "Tom Cruise", then "Winner of Stanley Kubrick Award of Excellence"
The next featurette is Cruise's acceptance speech. God, he is just so pleased with himself. He goes up with his toothy grin and spends the short speech declaring that film is a collaborative effort. Gee, thanks Tom. It's all so fake and ridiculous.
Up next is Generation: Cruise. I guess Tom really liked those montages because here is yet another one. It even contains some of the same shots as the first. You've got to be laughing at this point. At the end, the same white text comes up with tribute to Tom Cruise.
And of course we have to have the acceptance speech of him getting his "Generation Award" from MTV. Here's where the hilarity really kicks in because it's presented by Katie Holmes. She's a giggly little school girl and she can barely talk she's so antsy and excited. But then I got the impression that she had had an engram clearing session just before because she was acting like a drug addict. She actually reaches up to the sky, then squats down on the floor. I have no idea what this is supposed to signify, other than she's a ****in' freak.
So then she goes back and escorts Tom out as if he's ****ing King Arthur or something. The teen crowd goes nuts of course and Tom humbly hopes he's given them some tiny bit of entertainment over the years.
