In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Before I review this let me just make something abundantly clear. I'm biased towards this movie. I've been spellbound from it ever since it played in the theaters back in 1997. I've seen it well over 100 times and am an avid collector of everything Event Horizon.
Whew! OK, now onto the review. The title of this feature can be misleading. It has the exact same title as an HBO special that aired in 1997. However this is not that feature. The 1997 HBO special was about 25 minutes long with interviews with cast and crew and some clips not seen anywhere else, including this new feature.
But this new one, found on the Event Horizon special collector's edition is a real joy. As zamise outlined it previously it's made of a number of chapters, each with dizzying amounts of trivia and behind the scenes fun. Even die hards like me learned things from it.
While Paul W.S. Anderson continues to be hounded by dimwits, this is a great look into his greatest achievement and even those Anderson bashers are bound to find themselves entranced by this new DVD.
