Movie Reviews

Fun, close to the book
Kurt A. Johnson | North-Central Illinois, USA | 04/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When a sickly boy from Boston is sent to recuperate with his eccentric aunt in the country, he makes a startling discovery - there is a family of little people living under the floorboards, a family of Borrowers. The Borrowers who live in this spacious house are named the Clocks (father Pod, mother Homily and daughter Arrietty Clock), and they live by "borrowing" what they need from the "human beans" that share their house with them. But when the suspicious housekeeper catches sight of the Borrowers, she will stop at nothing to see them caught! [Color, released in 1973, with a running time of 1:21.]

This is a fun movie, which is remarkably close to Mary Norton's wonderful book, The Borrowers. Indeed, I am quite sad that they didn't go on to make sequels, which would have covered her other Borrower books. But, one must be grateful for what one does have.

Overall, I found this to be a fun and interesting movie that I could share with the whole family. Eddie Albert does an excellent job as Pod Clock, and even though the special effects are not that great, they are as well done as the existing technology allowed, and the wonderful story carries everything along. So, let me just say that I loved this movie, and highly recommend it to everyone with children, or who are just young at heart.

"Quite honestly, this looked like somebody had taken a video camera, and videotaped this movie while it was being played from a VCR. It was absolutely terrible. I was very disappointed."
DEFINITELY NOT DIGITALLY REMASTERED!

"This DVD version of The Borrowers has NOT been digitally remastered, no matter what they say on the cover. It is simply a out and out lie. The color is horrible and the film is extremely grainy. I would still recommend it because it is the only "classic" version available. I'm looking forward to the longer (and better) version with Ian Holm to be released on DVD."
Great story, horrible dvd!!

"Why this is called "digitally remastered" I'll never know. Both the sound and the picture were just plain bad. The price is right, but you certainly get what you pay for with this dvd. There's a novel idea called "truth in advertising", and this dvd is not advertised truthfully."
