To know Lloyd Dobler is to love him…

You know what I hate?

Special anniversary edition DVDs.

If you’re a fan of the movie, you obviously buy it when it first comes out.  Then if you’re REALLY a fan, you’re forced to buy the special edition with all those extra fancy features when some sort of anniversary rolls around.

For example, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”  I purchased the plain ol’ DVD for about $13 a while back, and then they came out with a TWO disc set with a snazzy box.  I bought it, fancy box and all, for less than I paid for the original.

Now one of my favorite movies of all time is doing the same on Nov. 3.

“Say Anything” will be re-released on DVD in celebration of its 20th anniversary.

Released in 1989, “Say Anything” is a tale of first love directed by Cameron Crowe. Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) is determined to win over class valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye) after their high school graduation.  Lloyd attempts woo her, despite a number of obstacles including Diane’s overprotective father.

I don’t want to spoil anything, because you need to see this movie magic for yourself.

Check out the trailer here!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This new 20th anniversary edition DVD includes a bunch of new extras, like commentary, alternate, extended and deleted scenes, a “Say Anything 20 Years Later” feature and much more.

I complain, but of course I will be buying this.  It’s probably best, as my current copy is pretty worn out at this point.

Look for the new DVD on Nov. 3!
