When I first watched the main movie, I really thought it was too short and started watching it again. I realized that what it was it was. But then I watched all of the extras, and that's the parts I REALLY liked.

I wanted a lot more material in it ... but they were very adamant on the need to keep it tight.

They agreed, but I had to make the extras films myself. I locked myself in a room for a week to edit and compile the extras films.
But to hear many people tell me the extras are absolutely worthwhile, brings it all back home. Cheers guys, and thanks!
