Movie Reviews

Vintage or vinegar?
JJL | Toulouse | 02/05/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD did not appear on Louis L'Amour Official Web Site for a long time and I understand why now : so vintaged - [It does appear now at last!!! sept 2008].The stories are as good as any Louis always delivered :
1. Hondo And The Apaches, with Ralph Traeger(1967) and
2. The Man Called Noon (1972), with Richard Crenna.
And I bought it thinking of Crossfire Trail, wih Tom Selleck, or The Quick and The Dead ,with Sam Elliott, with the usual expectations of a fine western.
But the video is technically rather poor. You'll have to be a real he fan and pay the modest price asked if you want to enjoy it.

An other DVD is available starring John Wayne as "Hondo" and is worth seeing [5 stars] and buying .The Duke is his usual self and the video is excellent."
Very Poor Quality

(1 out of 5 stars)

"The movies look like a transfer from bad copies of a 8mm or 16mm home movies to DVD done by someone on their home computer. They obviously didn't have capability or access to do a quality film digitization from a good source -- shakey image, poor cropping, heavily interlaced, with some ghosting in scenes. The movies were heavily compressed to fit two titles on one DVD which makes the video quality even worse. "Extras" are on Louis L'Amour and Richard Crenna. They consist of seven sparse screens of cut and paste text lifted from the web. None of the other actors or filmmakers are listed.Worst this title was purchased for a public library. Some patrons have complained that the disk refuses to play correctly."
Love the movie, but hated the DVD
Benjamin E. Cressy | NH USA | 01/04/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD solely for HONDO AND THE APACHES. I was a fan of the series around 1994 when TNT was airing it regularly. When they pulled it I missed it until this DVD came out. Boy was I sorry I bought it.

The DVD looks like it was mastered from an old film print, maybe even an old VHS tape due to some of the print damage that looks like video-tape "snow" rather than damage to an old film print. On top of that, it should be 85 minutes long, and is only a mere 72 minutes. The quality of the other film, THE MAN CALLED NOON, is no better. I'm used to cheap budget DVDs, but when parts of the movie are missing, I have to complain."
A couple of good westerns for a great price

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoyed both movies, and you can't beat the price. It's true the extras aren't much, and the quality of the video and sound aren't comparable to modern technology, but what do you expect for $7. If you like Westerns, you'll probably like this disk. If you like Louis L'Amour, you might love it."
