"I think its better if you get these two movies seperate where you could find both these movies for a lower price, both these films are brilliant by the way however I'm not sure what the special features are since I have these films on VHS which I ordered from Amazon back in 2001. Momento is about a guy named Leonard (Guy Pearce) who is suffering from severe short term memory loss after an attack which left his wife raped and murdered. Now he wants to know why his wife was killed and hes out for revenge, the film has a reverse narrative thats very original and I would describe the film as a noir style thriller where the lead character has to follow clues by having tatoos all over his body or leaving little notes. The film also stars Carrie Ann Moss and Joe Pantaliano who were both in the Matrix and the script was excellent and was very complex it will deffinetely screw with your head, its one of my favorites directed by Christopher Nolan 5/5.
Dogma is a very wierd but funny comedy about Catholic mythology and religion done by Kevin Smith, it has the typical yet hilarious dialogue that only Kevin Smith could write. The film is about two fallen angels Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as Bartleby and Loki they have been banned from heaven and now they plan to sneak back into heaven and they do evil things like killing people and stuff but this plan will also result in the destruction of the universe so its up to Bethany played by Linda Fiorentino and Jay and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes) to stop them before its to late. The film also has Alan Rickman and Chris Rock as the 13th disciple who was written out of the bible cause hes black, there were many laugh out loud scenes in this film and you shouldn't take this film to seriously you might end up enjoying this afterall atleast it was better than that awful jersey girl 4/5. Overall this double feature is good but the price is to high from Amazon....."
Jarring and Terrific!

"I went from horrified to enthralled to completely hooked on this off-the-wall religious satire. The cast is marvelous, the storyline inventive, and the entire idea brain-breaking in the extreme for those of us who grew up in a strictly religious household. I LOVED it!"
