Movie Reviews

Buyer beware!
Geoffrey P. Smith | ATLANTA, GA USA | 03/03/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"These are great films, and they deserve better treatment."Traveller" and "Matewan" are NOT widescreen presentations and "Breaking the Waves" is not 1.85:1,as listed on the case, but is 2.35:1. Nit-picking? I think not, as I believe that even though these are budget-priced discs, films should be presented widescreen if that was the theatrical presentation, and "Traveller" could have done with a 5.1 sound mix given that there are no extras. I guess i would rather pay more for premium treatment of great movies, than pay less and have to settle with just being thankful that the movies are on disc at all. A missed opportunity from ARTISAN, especially since the potential buyers for movies such as these three would happily pay extra for top-notch releases."
Good Movies - Bad Picture Quality

"I was suprised to find the films of these disks not presented in widescreen. The overall picture quality seems very poor."
Good Movies - bad copies

"I was suprised and disappointed to find these films squashed into the square TV format (instead of widescreen). The picture quality is also poor. I've learned a valuable lesson: just because its on DVD doesn't mean its good."
Matewan: phenomenal movie, terrible dvd
Doug Henry | 09/14/2002

"I can only comment on Matewan, since it's the only one I've watched, but is is abundantly clear that whoever produced this DVD did the cheapest job of it they could. NO subtitles, NO special features, wrong aspect ratio, crappy sound, *terrible* picture quality, etc. I'm not a videophile and this is the first time I've ever been so disappointed with a dvd. Incredible movie though."
