"Yes it's a 2 disc set unlike the other Warners Double Feature titles I've bought that are a one DVD flipper disc. Haven't screened the movies yet but from the back cover it says that Frantic is full frame with no other info. Presumed Innocent is a flipper with fullscreen on one side and 1.85 widescreen on the other plus the package says it has the trailer.."

"How can you go wrong with two Harrison Ford DVDs for virtually no money? You can't, that's how. At least, as long as, like me, you could care less about pan and scan or full screen or any of that jazz.
OK, OK, I have to admit that, although the plotting of Presumed Innocent is cracker jack, what's with the music? John Williams really mushed up what was shaping up to be a taut courtroom thriller with a flaccid, trance-inducing score that detracts from the story. Just watch this movie and think how much better it would've been with a more muscular, tension-filled score. Plus, it's got Raul Julia being supercool as the suave defense attorney.
And Frantic: I love it. Harrison Ford is just great in this. I love how he uses the commanding and imperious gestures and arrogant finger-snapping of a internationally respected heart surgeon, and I love his impatience throughout. There's something about his fish-out-of-water thing that he does during his dance with Michelle Seigneur that is so compelling. It's true, Seigneur isn't going to win any acting awards for this one, but at least there's some sense of honesty and integrity in what she's doing. I love the slow, deliberate pacing throughout and I love the look of the film, with all those washed out blues and gray and whatever-the-hell color Harrison Ford's suits are. I've got to agree with other reviews of Frantic, though: the more you find out about why Ford's wife was kidnapped, the less interesting it gets."
