"So, I was in Wal-Mart looking specially for Black Snake Moan, and what do I happen to find; I guess Paramount decided to listen to the fans and put out a better version of the DVD to The Wood, than the now discontinued original printing (which I also own), and the re-release that they put out last year with still no special features. To my surprise, this new version features a commentary track with the director Rick Famuyiwa, and star Taye Diggs and Richard T. Jones. I had to buy it, along with BSM (not "BDSM"; ya'll are nasty!)Now, being that this commentary was recorded exactly eight years after the film was made, and being that The Wood is such a huge hit, you expect certain things about the production of the film, behind the scenes secrets to be told, etc. Really, the commentary doesn't touch that at all. Sure, they think back on the old times of making this movies, but really they don't discuss the movie. The other "features include a reburbished previouly unreleased featurette about the back story of the movie; and the theatrical trailer. Honestly, i still think that they could have done better byt including music videos from songs on the soundtrack (who didn't like 'Neck Uv Da Woods', the brilliant combination of Outkast and Mystikal), and the others. Sure, this release is better than the previous two, but as I mentioned before, this film means something to many people, and although I only paid $10 for the DVD, I really don't know if I got my money's worth."
An Absolute Joy

"This movie was an absolute joy; one of the best black films I have seen in a long time. It definitely took me back to the days when all those great R&B songs were out and to my first crush and first boyfriend, etc. This movie just put together a whole bunch of good looking black people into a story that's not about violence or any kind of negativity, just pure fun; it's what life is all about for those of us who appreciate but can't fully relate to life in the hood. It was so much fun. I loved every minute of it. The story was great; the acting was convincing, the plot was realistic and it's a movie I will always think about with a huge grin on my face. Two thumbs way up in my book!"

Remember the school days, the silly little bets like who goin to get the girl first.. just the growing pains of being a teenager.. those were the times.. I cherish those times that why so much i cherish this film it hits so close to home.. I know every one is feeling what i say .."
