Review of the special features on Repo! Blu-ray
A Repo! fan (xerotheory7803) wrote a review of the special features in the Blu-ray release on the Repo! board:
The features are a mixed bag:
I’ve only listened to one of the commentaries so far, the DLB/Mosely/Alexa/Ogre one, and its a fun listen. They seem to have a fun time doing it, and we learn a bit in the process.
The deleted scenes range from cool to pointless:
-Come Up And Try My New Parts: cool scene, but redundant when though about in context of the film, especially with Zydrate Anatomy.
-Needle Through A Bug: If we could see the entire sideplot that this song worked with, this scene would be much better. Still great though.
-Buon Giorno: Mainly, it was just cool to see what the little intro audio clip that has been on the Repo! website for the last few months came from. (“Ladies and good Gentlemen, welcome to the show!…”)
-Graverobber and Shilo Escape: pretty pointless, IMO. Same as them escaping in the film, but now Amber spots them and yells something at GR.
Trailer (in HD): Self explanatory, but it does look great in HD. I wish this would have actually gotten to play in theaters.
Poster Gallery (in HD): Again pretty self explanatory. All the propaganda posters you see in the film. cool little feature
The featurettes are all the same as we’ve seen on the website:
-Amber Sweet: Addicted To The Knife
-Blind Mag: The Voice of GeneCo
-From Stage To Screen (I’m pretty sure this is the same as the We Started This Opera Shit featurette)
-Legal Assassin: A Repo Man On The Edge
The sing-a-longs are pretty self explanatory too.
The select scene commentary with DLB and Paris isnt too interesting. DLB tries to give some insight, but Paris, as much as I’ve grown to like her over the last few years, isn’t very interesting to listen to on a commentary.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the Repo! BluRay to anyone who has the capabilities.
You can also read another interesting review by Repo! fan Logan DeSisto, whose opinion on the Blu-ray release is the different than the person who wrote the one above.

Logan DeSisto’s review isn’t worth reading or giving a hit to, if you’re a Paris fan. Apparently he thinks women should sound gruff and masculine or something and is another tired reviewer who thinks Paris plays herself (ie a spoiled attention hungry brat) *yawn*
