Bones [DVD] [2001]

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.

Synopsis

Bones
Cinematographer turned director Ernest Dickerson returns to the horror genre with this African-American, urban twist on haunted house stories. Rap star Snoop Doggy Dogg makes his debut as a leading man in the title role of Jimmy Bones, stylish protector of a thriving inner-city neighborhood in 1979. When he refuses to knuckle under to powerful interests bent on introducing crack cocaine into his turf, Bones is betrayed by some of his own people, murdered, and buried in the basement of his gothic home. More than two decades later, the neighborhood is a drug and crime-infested nightmare, and Bones' decrepit, allegedly haunted domicile is about to become a hip-hop dance club. Although Bones' one-time girlfriend, Pearl (Pam Grier), and his right-hand man, Shotgun (Ronald Selmour), have remained loyal to his memory, the children of his traitor, Jeremiah (Clifton Powell), are the principal owners of the new club. They become the primary targets when Bones' vengeful spirit rises up to exact bloody retribution for past misdeeds. Bones (2001) co-stars Michael T. Weiss, Bianca Lawson, and Khalil Kain. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
