Good Movie, Poor DVD

"I have the Parkenfiled VHS Edition (UK) of Convoy and the picture quality is much better than the DVD that I purchased from Amazon.
Amazon is offering two versions of this movie; one being "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" and the other is the "Triumph Marketing" version.
I ordered the "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" version of Convoy - it's terrible! I don't have any idea about the "Triumph Marketing" release of this DVD.
If you have VHS version of this great movie don't waste your money ordering the "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" DVD version.Movie: Perfect (5 stars)

"I mainly purchased this DVD to have an archive of my dad's stunts. He was the stunt double for Ernest Borgnine and worked on this movie for several months in 1977. I am very dissapointed in the sound and picture quality of this movie. "CheesyFlicks" lists this as being digitally remastered... I would hate to have seen it before it was "remastered". The aspect ratio makes it look strange, it looks like it's slightly out of focus, and there are pops and buzzing throughout. I'm going to keep the DVD only because I want a record of my dads stunt work, not because of its' quality. Maybe the "Triumph Marketing" version is better, but wasn't available at the time that I ordered mine."
Terrible squashed transfer

"Don't be fooled by the cover. This is NOT a collector's edition letterbox edition. The film's original 2.35:1 widescreen has been bizarrely changed to 1.85:1. The result is an unpleasant warped, squished image. It is such a staggeringly pointless and inept thing to do, I contacted Cheezy Flicks for an explananation. They blamed the "third party" who supplied them with the transfer. If so, shame on them for selling it anyway. A cynical piece of junk. Avoid."

"Movie is ok, but not like the movie on T.V. This one is cut and the one that I seen on T.V. was not cut. One scene that was cut from the dvd is where the man is talking to the truckers all down the line as to why they are in the convoy and it shows a trucker mooning the camera."
