We've been receiving a ton of emails here at Cinematical from folks who bought bad copies of the Slumdog Millionaire DVD. What happened was that some DVDs entered the marketplace without any of the special features on them; one Cinematical reader wrote in to say that all he got was the movie and a few trailers. Over on Amazon, their review wall is packed with folks complaining about receiving a botched DVD, and good news is the retailer has finally issued an alert for those of you who got screwed. See below:
DVD Alert: We are aware that special features were missing from a number of Slumdog Millionaire DVDs. Fox has set up a hotline telephone number (1-888-223-4FOX) for those consumers who may have purchased a version that does not contain special features. Upon calling the hotline, these consumers will be able to have their disc replaced for one containing special features. Fox regrets any inconvenience this has caused.
So there you go. What do you folks think of Slumdog Millionaire now that you've watched it again surrounded by the comforts of your own home? Do you think it deserved the Oscar for Best Picture?
