OK For the Price

"Both movies on this DVD are entertaining and stand on their own merits, but the reason I bought this was to see Raise the Titanic again. Like many fans of this movie, I look forward to a restored/enhanced/widescreen treatment one day. Although this is not it, I was appreciative of the fact that the movie looks acceptable on this DVD. It's fullscreen with widescreen credits, no real cleanup as evident by a moderate degree of speckling and faded color, and weak stereo audio with limited range. But at least it isn't as low as the quality of the GoodTimes series of DVD releases. For the price, this was acceptable, and it was nice to see this movie again. In the meantime, I still look forward to seeing an enhanced widescreen version someday.
As far as Man Friday, same comments.
Both are enjoyable movies with excellent acting and great stories. And with the low price, very worth the purchase even for basic fullscreen copies.
Now get to work on the enhanced versions please.
Still Underrated Maritime Classic

"RAISE THE TITANIC is one of the most underrated maritime classic films of all time. This is due to greatly to the magnificent heartfelt score by John Barry. This has got to be one of the best scores ever composed for a motion picture. There is more emotion packed into this score than anything that John Barry has ever composed. Perhaps because the catalyst of the this story was based on a real life tragedy that has taken on legendary proportions I think Barry discarded the script and let the various symbols of that ship and events inspire him. The score never seems to lose sight of the grandeur of the ship, the tragedy and the power of the sea. In a way the score is a melancholy tribute to those through their dearest sacrifices that learn that man can never control nature but instead must learn to respect it. Somehow you just can't help but think that John Barry was really moved by that legendary ship which inspired this classic film."
Nice to see on dvd

"These movies are finaly going to be on dvd, that's good, however since this disk is a budget title don't expect gloryous 5.1 audio and anamorphic widescreen video . I have been waiting to see raise the titanic in widescreen for years and it looks I will have to continue my wait, bummer."

"I would recomend this title if you have to have this movie. I bought it for the Titanic title since there is no other way to have it by its own. The quality of the picture is at most "fair", the audio is in the same category. Like I said, I just buoght it because I loved the movie and the score. So there you have it. As soon as there is a remastered version I would buy it in a heartbeat."
