Movie Reviews

Great movies, unfortunately not widescreen
Michael Waterman | Kent, WA USA | 09/05/2006

"Very disappointed to find these two films have been reformated to fit "your TV!" Not my TV! If you like "full-screen" versions, you will be well pleased. If you collect widescreen videos, don't buy this package!"
Whats the matter with full screen? Nothing.....

"I too prefer a letterbox (widescreen) transfer over a full screen one because the letterbox format is the way you see the movie in a theater. However unlike the widescreen movies of the 50's & 60's you don't lose any picture for fullscreen versions of recent (70's & after) movies. For the older movies they had to pan & scan the image to fit the screen and you lost part of the picture that way so you buy the letterbox version to get the full image. But today they just open up the matte meaning you see stuff at the top & bottom that you didn't see in the theater. Sure I bought this full screen disc. It was agood way to get two great movies for the one low price. Not all double movie (2 on one disc) sets are full screen. I've bought some (like The Fugitive/US Marshalls) where both movies were in letterbox format. Oh & for these sets they are flipper discs meaning one movie per side of the disc. A great way to get a pair of movies!!"
"Action Double Feature" is the one to get

"Unlike the other available version of ASSASSINS / THE SPECIALIST (which is full screen only), the twin-DVD set labelled: ACTION DOUBLE FEATURE consists of flip discs that offer both movies in full or widescreen format. THE SPECIALIST also includes its theatrical trailer. There's no other extras on the discs, which automatically start playing the films when they're inserted.

Clean transfers here. Definitely a good deal, especially for Stallone action movie fans.
