Movie Reviews

Wonderful Gackt videos
Amber White | Tacoma, WA, USA | 10/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the American release of Gackt's Filmography. It has English subtitles and is playable on any Region 1 (America) DVD player.

Blue contains Gackt's quieter videos and three live acoustic recordings off one of the yearly Platinum box sets. All the videos are gorgeous. December Love Song (juunigatsu no love) is set in New York in November 2001. It is a beautiful video tribute to the lives lost in 9/11. You really shouldn't miss the piano version of Last Song. It is just Gackt and the piano. And finally I cried when I saw the last song on the DVD, Love Letter. It is a heartfelt song to his fans.

This is a video must for anyone who is a Gackt fan. It is definitely worth the price."
Great artist; shoddy authoring

"I am a great fan of Gackt's work. Gackt is obsessive about quality and his concert DVDs are miles above typical Jrock concert videos from other artists. As such, it is distressing to see such a slipshod repackaging of his music videos, particularly since these are the first Gackt DVDs to be marketed specifically to a U.S. audience and folks new to this artist may get the wrong idea about the overall quality of his work.

The box indicates that these videos are "16:9 anamorphic widescreen," but most of the videos themselves have hard-coded letterbox bars on top and bottom. This makes it hard for many people with 16:9 displays that lack a vertical zoom feature to see the videos in their correct aspect ratio (fat head syndrome). Moreover, even if one's display *can* do the requisite stretching, it is likely to cut off the subtitles.

These music videos, long available to hard-core fans through other channels, really needed to be remastered to be 16:9 anamorphic and with 5.1 surround sound, as are all of Gackt's concert videos except for "Mars." (Even Mars, his first concert DVD, has surround sound.) The music videos in this DVD fall far short of the audio and video quality of Gackt's concert videos, which are world-class in every respect, and which should be made available to U.S. audiences -- hopefully without the compromises we see here."

"It's kind of a disappointment piece because both DVDs only contain music videos, and that's about it--and not even all of the videos Gackt's had done in the past 6-7 years either. It could have, at least, had him talking about his journal or something. No Gactk talking at all. I still love Gackt, though. But you can find all of those music videos on YouTube easily."
