DVD Thoughts: Cop Out - Rock Out with your Glock Out Edition

I made the switch to Blu-Ray a couple months ago, however all the discs I purchased so far only had standard DVD features (except in high definition).  However, with the Cop Out Blu-Ray, I finally get a special feature that is truly special with the Maximum Movie Comedy Mode.  This mode has already been on previous Warner Bros Blu-Rays (notably Watchman), and I have to say that it is quite spectacular.

Essentially the mode combines all the special features into one.  The mode is built around Kevin Smith doing his director's commentary for the movie, which includes him (and Seann William Scott) appearing on screen at some parts of the film.  The mode also includes deleted scenes and alternate takes inserted where they were cut from, as well as on-screen trivia and the occasional option to pause the film to watch behind-the-scenes features.

I have to say that I was amazed by this mode and it even resulted in the first time I watched the entire film with a commentary track turned on.  I will definitely look forward to experiencing this again.
