Final Destination 3 Dvd "Choose There Fate"
MAJOR SPOILERS.

Spoiler Spoiler
 The DVD version contains a special feature called "Choose their Fate" that at certain moments in the film allows the viewer to make a decision that could affect the fate of the characters.

Using this feature, alternate sequences are edited into the film, affecting a number of death scenes:

Jason and Carrie: When Kevin flips the coin to determine who sits with Wendy, viewers can choose either Heads or Tails. The Change: After choosing tails, the movie plays out as it did theatrically, only Wendy’s vision ends with her still in line instead of when she is already sitting on the coaster. She convinces her friends to leave, saving Jason and Carrie. The four of them witness the coaster crash, but then the film ends after about 20 minutes with text information about what would have happened to the characters. Surprisingly, even though they escaped death’s design, death apparently doesn’t target them in the alternate version.

Ashley and Ashlyn: At the tanning salon, viewers can choose whether the room temperature is set to 73 or 76 degrees. The Change: A setting of 76 degrees apparently gives Ashlyn enough time later to escape her booth before the board could trap both girls. Ashlyn is able to open Ashley’s booth, but in reaching to pull her friend to safety, they are both electrocuted by the malfunctioning booth.

Frankie Cheeks: At the drive-thru window, viewers who make Wendy honk again will unlock a scene in which Frankie turns around, allowing Kevin and Wendy to see him before the truck hits. When they escape, they pull Frankie to safety as well. The Change: This causes a few alterations to the remaining film. Upon seeing the picture of Frankie next to the fan, Kevin and Wendy refer to what could have happened to Frankie had they not saved him. Later, when leaving the police station, Kevin walks by a police car that pulls up, and Frankie is dragged out of the car under arrest. Viewers are then asked if saving Frankie was worth it, unlocking hidden footage of police evidence that consists of Frankie’s home movies, including what he filmed at the amusement park.

Lewis: Before visiting Lewis in the weight room, viewers can give Wendy another chance to look at the pictures. The Change: Instead of the next scene beginning in the weight room with Wendy and Kevin trying to convince Lewis of his impending doom, it features Wendy and Kevin walking across the track stadium to the weight room talking about how they will convince Lewis of the danger. As soon as they walk into the weight room, Lewis sees them, asks why they are there, and his head is immediately crushed by the weights. This is actually the alternate scene of Lewis’ death, as was originally scripted.

Erin: Before Ian shoots the birds, viewers are given the option of a kill shot or warning shot. A kill shot returns to the theatrical version of the movie, while a warning shot changes things up. The Change: Having failed to kill the birds, Ian mutters menacingly that they cannot escape. The film progresses as it does in the theatrical version up until after Ian is rescued from the falling debris. Instead of a stake popping the sawdust bag, Erin is startled by the pigeons, which are still alive, and falls back into the nail gun.

Ian: After Ian stalks Wendy to the fair and the cherry picker is about to crush him, viewers can make him jump to the left or to the right. Jumping to the left leads to the theatrical version. The Change: Jumping to the right makes Ian completely crushed by the cherry picker, and half his body is not thrown to the side as it is in the theatrical version. This unlocks the alternate ending in which Wendy crushes the camera.

Kimberley Corman and Officer Burke (From FD2): The fates of these two characters from Final Destination 2 are revealed when the camera pans a newspaper in the subway station. In “Choose Their Fate” mode, viewers are given the option of reading the full article about what happened to them. According to the newspaper, they died in an accident that involved a woodchipper.

Wendy: In the final subway scene, Wendy examines a route map. Viewers are asked if she should continue to examine the map. The Change: After examining the map further, Wendy sees how it says “End of the line,” then gets the strange feeling and sees Kevin and Julie, as she does in the theatrical version. The train crashes, and Wendy finds herself on the tracks about to be run over by another train. Instead of this being a vision, Wendy is hit by the train, and the credits roll.

Added spoiler tags. And it's 'Choose Their Fate', not 'Choose There Fate'.

As someone who thought the second Final destination film was some kind of work of genius, I was disappoionted in part 3, but this DVD feature is enough to make me want to give the film another try.

Quote: My bad.
You're just making it worse for yourself. What you actually mean is 'My mistake'. I realise 'My bad' is an internet thing but it means nothing and makes no sense. And it's annoying.

Guess what?
The expression "my bad" is not an Internet thing. It is a very well known and commonly used expression. The fact that you don't know this makes you more ignorant than the person whom you chose to attack.

Final Destination 3 is my least favourite of the thrill-ogy but the DVD seems to be very interesting since it's utilizing a new “choose their fate” feature, the film becomes an interactive experience that can’t be seen in the theaters.

Iliked the first two, so I blind bought this yesterday and liked it.  These flicks remind me of the 'ol horror movies but there is no killer to run from, so it add a bit to it.  I have not jumped into the interactive part yet, but I hope the franchise continues.

Dude,
Why are you being such a sarcastic dick?!  
It's not necessary to insult the guy because he happens to like a movie that YOU don't.  
Get over yourself and get out more.  LOL

I'm assuming you're refering to my post. What I wrote hardly constitutes 'insulting the guy' (Tigerclaw). I just thought that what he wrote (after all the other posts, particularly the first very explanitory one) seemed a little redundant to me.

There was no insult intended and I'll thank you to not to make a mountain out of a mole hill. LOL.

I actually wanted to read opinions about the movie and the cool feature, but all I get is bickering?  Quite cool.  lol

I'd never do that (make a mountain out of a molehill) and since you explained yourself...I apologize.  ;0)

Um...not to rain on any parades but I thought it sucked. First one was good, the second had a few endearing qualities, but for me the third seemed like a luke-warm re-hash offering nothing new or exciting. Having said that, the Choose Their Fates doo-dad on the DVD thingy sounds interesting.....but I wont be getting it.

I have to go with P O Hara, but the film wasn't that sucky. It had probably one good part in it, but that was pretty much it.

Anyway the Choose Their Fate was alright, nothing special. I read they were making more DVDs like this.

Does anyone else have this DVD, and has anyone else ran into the problem with none of the "choose their fate" options being available? I mean it shows the "choose ____ or ____" sceene, but the movie plays the same pretty much no matter what I pick. it really ticks me off.

Can't flip the coin either
So the first time the "Choose Their Fate" option popped-up, I couldn't use my "left" or "right" arrows on my DVD player's remote to flip the coin. It stayed on heads.
    However, the 2nd time the menu appeared, I *was* able to choose.
    I'm thinking this bug with the first scene might be a result of the way the DVD construction/layout, so I'm betting the option works just fine when played on a computer....

I enjoyed this option (where they could have just put the scenes as an extra)
