Movie Reviews

Appallingly bad transfer
Tim Evanson | Washington, DC United States | 12/21/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This must be the VERY WORST film-to-video transfer I have seen in 20 years. The image is murky. Half the time, heads are cut off in mid-forehead. It's as if the upper and lower 15 percent of the movie were simply chopped off. The sound is clear, but the image? I would never, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR buy this product EVER AGAIN.

The company which is foisting this horrific transfer off on an unsuspecting public, Big D Entertainment, claims that although the film has been digitally remastered, it has been done so to keep the "experience of viewing early cinema intact."

This is an outright lie. This simply means that the viewer has to be satisfied with a rotten film print, transferred poorly to DVD, and then poorly digitized.

This DVD is similar in appearance to those pirates who sit in the back row of a theater and videotape a major motion picture. It's that poor.

Blue disc
David Millman | New York, NY | 12/28/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is my second try with this movie. the first being a very cheap one, with predictably bad quality. This issue, though, is not only just as bad (low resolution, excessive contrast) but also, 3X the price. Also, it's a burned disc (sometimes called a blue disc) and will not by some reports last as long as a commercially produced CD."
William Powell is at his best
bernie | Arlington, Texas | 11/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A dysfunctional but seemingly wealthy family takes in a new butler of dubious background. In return the butler saves the family in more ways than one. (This is a comedy)

I really appreciate this movie on many levels. You may recognize several people types just in the Bullock family. The interaction between Carole Lombard and William Powell is worth watching in its self. I particularly like when Tommy Gray (Alan Mowbray) has to explain his earlier relationship with Godfrey.

As good as this movie is I still like the remake with David Niven and June Allyson just as well. My Man Godfrey (1957) but many of his movies are hard to find. Such as "The Statue" and "Prudence and the pill."
