Disc #1: The Film
This is a very informative, if very dry, commentary. We get a bunch of nice stories about the making of the film and working with the cast. This is a good commentary, but not the best.
Kevin Smith loves the sound of his own voice so you can tell who does the most speaking. Smith and Mosier are really big fans of the film and poke fun at it while also admiring it. The banter between the two is really fun and they make for a good commentary track. Don't expect a lot of info about the film, but do expect a lot of laughs.
Disc #2: The Special Features
Road House is a cult film. The film was not that big of a hit in the 80’s and it wasn’t until the film was released on home video that it got the following that it has now.
The Shout! Select blu-ray is a mixed bag as well. The film looks amazing with its new 2K transfer. I have never seen the film look this good. The depth of field is nice and the color pallet looks natural.
