Movie Reviews

Barely worth $8.00

"If a DVD is selling for only $8.00, you know that it must be pretty slim on production values and material. This supposed "making of" DVD certainly falls into that category.The video is nothing more than a collection of old "making of" featurettes that are found on the 2-disc delux edition of Lawrence. Although interesting, they are not overly informative and are quite repetitive in what is discussed. Aside from this public-domain productions, you also get the film's trailer. Big deal.To legitimize this release further, the producers also created two "documentaries" on Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif that are about as uninteresting and flaccid as you can find. I've seen high school video productions that are more thorough and interesting than what is presented on this disc. On top of that, you have a video introduction that is so appallingly bad that it is laughable. (The "emcee" even has the nerve to say the hackneyed phrase "so, sit back and relax and enjoy the show" not once but twice!!)Who should get this disc? Well, if you didn't purchase the deluxe edition of Lawrence and only have the Superbit Edition, then this might be a decent purchase. If you are looking for a thorough discussion of the making of Lawrence of Arabia, save your money you won't find it here."

"This dvd is only about 15 minutes on behind the scenes of Lawrence of Arabia. The bulk of this dvd is biographies of Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif including all the films each did and summaries of THOSE films. Ends with film clips of director David Lean and summaries of THOSE films. Very disappointing as I bought it for Lawrence ONLY. You have been warned."
