Overview

Urban drama and horror come together in the Snoop Dogg vehicle Bones. New Line has done a fantastic job on this nearly flawless 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. No grain, dirt, edge enhancement, or digital artifacting is spotted anywhere on this disc. All of the colors, flesh tones, and black levels look very vibrant and even. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX, DTS 6.1, and Dolby 2.0 Surround, all in English. The DTS and Dolby 5.1 soundtracks both sound extremely bombastic and full. The surround feature on each of these mixes is utilized extensively through the front and rear speakers to maximum effect. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are clear of any distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. Bones is presented in New Line's "Platinum Edition" and features lots of goodies for fans to peruse through. The first is a commentary track by director Ernest Dickerson, writer Adam Simon, and star Snoop Dogg. While this is a somewhat dull track with some lulls in the feature, there are some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits shared with the viewer. Fourteen deleted scenes are next totaling about 24 minutes. Some of these cut scenes are fairly interesting, while others are just boring. Two rather long featurettes titled "Digging up Bones" and "Urban Gothic: Bones and Its Influences," are very in-depth looks at both the production of the film as well as where the idea for Bones sprung from. Rounding out the extra features are two music videos, one live and one filmed, by Snoop Dogg, as well as some info on the cast and crew and a theatrical trailer presented in anamorphic widescreen. Watch your back and get your hands on this great edition of Bones.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Rap superstar Snoop Dogg struts with supernatural style through Bones, a gothic horror entry from former Spike Lee cinematographer-turned-director Ernest Dickerson. Dogg plays the pimplike neighborhood "protector" Jimmy Bones, who returns from 20 years in the grave to avenge his murder just as a few earnest teenagers turn his abandoned and dilapidated brownstone into a decadent nightclub. The film cruises like the groove of a Curtis Mayfield tune and gets extra old-school credits for casting Pam Grier as Bones's main squeeze. But the bulk of the story is an unabashed homage to Italian horror: Dickerson lovingly paints his lush wide-screen canvas in the style of Mario Bava and Dario Argento, complete with blood that's splashed around seemingly by the gallons. Dogg as Bones turns out to be the perfect avenger: He's a man of few words, but his black hat and ankle-length duster make him easily one of the nattiest-dressed undeads in memory. And while Bones has a few moments of kitschy humor, it fits the blaxploitation style and never flirts with parody. The result is an effective, savvy confluence of genres that form a modern gothic tale with a hip-hop heart. The DVD includes two mini-docs; the "Dogg Named Snoop" music video; a commentary featuring Dickerson, Dogg, and screenwriter Adam Simon; and deleted scenes.
New York Times - Stephen Holden
Underneath the horror, the movie is a nasty parable about escapees from the ghetto and its long shadows.

    SHOULD BE A COMEDY

    I never really wanted to waste money on renting this movie, and luckily I found it on BET one day. It has some maybe one or two decent scenes, but otherwise it was really funny how it was considered a horror movie. Not worth watching or renting, and you better not buy it either.
