When Movies Go the Extra Mile

I wanted to take a moment to appreciate how magical DVDs used to be before the Internet got its hands on the movie industry. Many DVD cases began to contain not only the movie itself, but a second disc with extra content. This was my favorite part of the purchase. Sure, nowadays you can use your favorite search engine to find behind the scenes footage or the creative process of a film. For me, however, there was always something special about taking that extra disc out of the case.

Everyone knows and loves Disney Pixar's The Incredibles. If you haven't seen it, you should probably do that as soon as possible. This movie is a great example of how with additional effort, the world in which the movie was set in can really come to life. On disc 2 of The Incredibles, there is a "top secret" section that allows you to view information about superheroes that have been either terminated or forced to go into hiding and leading normal lives.

You can go through every single superhero on the list! This was an extremely creative way of going the extra mile and elaborating on something that was only a part of the movie itself.
