Beware! AWFUL picture quality on this DVD

"You gotta be kidding me! I was waiting for this with great anticipation. Helloween is my favorite band next to Iron Maiden. I have seen them live twice, and they totally rock on stage. So I got this DVD and fired it up. I initially thought something was wrong, because this looks like crap! The picture is so pixelated you will find better looking videos on youtube. It's presented in a 4:3 letterbox format (WHY oh WHY couldn't they have made this anamorphic widescreen??), but there is something wrong with at least one of the cameras, because at the very right end side the video sometimes seem to be wrapped around from the other side. But not all the time... The worst though is the pixelation. My GOD, how could they release a DVD in the 21st century that looks like this??
The sound is decent though, so if you turn off the TV and just LISTEN to it, it's probably OK. But then again, I guess you could just stick to the CD. It just so happens I bought both."
Am I the only one who is having audio and set-up problems?

"I'm not knocking the performance AT ALL. The band rocks, the songs sound killer, all that good stuff. If you like Helloween's music, this DVD is a must have. Like the other reviewer, though, I feel the picture quality could be better. And why is the video editor so in love with guitarist Sascha Gerstner? Through the whole DVD, the camera continues to linger on him while the other guitarist is soloing.
My real concern is with what appears to be audio mastering problems. I heard about 10 complete dropouts throughout disc one, which seemed to occur when the option to toggle between shows was available. In addition, on disc two, the English subtitles don't display when activated. I'm sure that documentary about the tour was fascinating, but I'll never know, because I don't speak German.
I think I need to call the manufacturer."
A must for all metallers!!!

"This Helloween Dvd puts these original powermetallers on the map. We've been waiting for something like this for twenty years. Now world wake up and see for yourself one of the greatest metal bands in the whole wide world. I just wish they did more songs of their new album than all those older songs you have to hear again and again. But for all those not familiar with Helloween come and see for yourself why this is one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Dont' be silly...this will be your best dvd in your collection!"
The energy is amazing!!!
