Movie Reviews

Why not do a proper job?
T. Nicholas Moroney | Stevensville, MD USA | 06/12/2004

"Currently available through amazon.co.uk is a 21 DVD set of Laurel And Hardy - remastered with oodles of extras including colorized versions and running 3 hours or more for each DVD. Why isn't the collection (or a comparable one) available here?"
Not their best

"Laurel and Hardy at their best are great. At their worst they're terrible. These movies are as bad as it gets. Judging their comedy by these flicks is unfair to them, so don't be fooled. Don't buy these. Hold out their best stuff, the 2-reelers from the early 30's, not their full-length movies. The only feature-length films worthy of their best are "Sons of the Desert," (arguably the funniest movie ever made) and, possibly, "Way out West." Unfortunately, the best 2-reelers are still not available on DVD, and difficult to find even on VHS. All of their avilable silent movies have been released, and are worth the money. Does anyone know why it's taking so long for those great talkie 2-reelers (1929-1933) to be released on DVD?"
Stan & Ollie DESERVE MORE THAN THIS!!!

Not the best of Stan and Ollie

"Go to Amazon.uk and you will find the whole Laurel and Hardy collection (all together or as seperates). There are 21 DVDs in a classy collectable box (DVD 21 is a documentary about the two). The quality is brilliantly restored and has colourised versions as well (may appeal to younger ones).

All the best are here (including early silent ones, extended versions and even some in other languages), apart from The Flying Deuces (made at another studio - MGM I think) and a few of the lesser quality ones (post 40's) which are not as good anyway.

The only problem is that they are Region 2 (PAL) so you may need to get a multiregion DVD player and television that can play PAL.

The cheap DVDs you see around do not contain any of their better stuff (particularly the Hal Roach shorts of around 1930-1940 or the feature films such as Blockheads, Way Out West or Sons of the Desert) but any Laurel and Hardy is worth getting.

The colourised versions are 'television friendly' i.e. with cuts here and there - but it is worth watching them to see Stan's bright red hair and some of the colour tones of the time. However, the black and white versions are by far the best, with clear sharp images (restored) and they remain uncut (Laughing Gravy is on twice, one is extended and has the original ending - a rather grimmer ending at that!).
