I don't think I have seen any DVD movie with Angle control. Has any movie been released that allows this control?

Lots of DVD's offer it, but probably no major motion pictures during the movie itself. Besides adult titles, quite a few live concert videos offer this. Usually it lets you switch around to watch various band members during the show. Also, it's in some special features on movies, like above, another example is Ghostbusters, can't remember what it does though. :)

That seems to be a problem with most multi-angle features is they don't really do anything worth remembering. In most cases (except for porn, I suppose, where you might have a favorite view and often stay with it) it's not worth the effort to use the multi-angle feature. Many DVD players simply don't have an easy way to switch between them. Fumbling with the remote takes a lot away from the viewing experience.

It seems pretty common on extras. Fight Club and T2 have good examples of this.

Some of the Kevin Smith commentaries let you use the alternate angle to "turn on" a view of themselves while they goof off.

Lots of features use alternate angles so that opening and closing credits are shown in the language that matches the audio. Shrek comes to mind.

Some music DVDs have multi-angle control. Metallica and The Kids Are Alright (The Who) come to mind. It's used on extras as noted above.

The just released "The Kids Are Alright" has a special feature on the extras DVD, allowing you to control the view of the 4 band members of the Who when they are playing Baba O'Reilly and Won't Get Fooled Again.


By using the "angle" button on your remote, you can switch from Pete cam, to Moon cam, to Roger cam to John cam. You can also isolate the audio from John Entwistle (but not the others).

Men in Black DVD has some making of scenes that use angle control to allow you to switch between different views of a CG scene, such as initial filming, blocking, etc.


Pretty cool to switch between and see the differences.

As I've pointed out before, "Deja Vroom" by King Crimson goes one better by adjusting the (DTS!) mix to highlight the musician you are watching and putting them in the center channel. I just think that's hella spiffy... :D

Blast has alternate camera angles on 2 tracts. Very interesting since they are doing Drum/Bugle corps maneuvering.


Here is the problem, my DVD player has a blue line with a film projector on the line running across the whole screen telling me angles are available!!!.


Very distracting.

Bad Boys has a really cool behind the scenes thingy about guns used in the movie that makes good use of the angle feature. really one of the cooler extras i've seen.
