Sadly, practically all of the special features featured on these releases have been recycled from previous SD-DVD incarnations (The Girl Next Door only contains the unrated edition). Worse, all of these salvaged features are presented in standard definition and without the benefit of anamorphic widescreen when applicable. As far as I can tell, the only indigenous bonus material is the “Complete Interactive Guide To M*A*S*H.” While probably best-suited for die-hard fans or folks looking for a drinking game, the guide keeps tallies on various subjects by having an avatar pop up with a number next to it. Among the subjects are drinking, fighting, and flirting. The best one of course is the “Altman Mumble Meter,” which keeps track of how many times the director has more than one character speaking at once.
While the lack of very many new (or at least improved) special features may warrant some to reconsider the upgrade to Blu-ray, it’s nice to see the studios re-issuing their older titles in high def. M*A*S*H is definitely something fans will want to get hold of, as is The Girl Next Door. High Crimes, on the other hand, delivers the better A/V performance of the three — but, phew, what a stinker of a movie it is.
