Movie Reviews

Terrible prints
Howie | Arkansas | 12/26/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The 1 star is solely for the abysmal quality of the prints and disk. The films are true cinema classics that deserve much better treatment.

You know you're in for a rough ride when the distributor appologizes and makes excuses for the prints before the films begin! The prints for both of these are very poor quality with video that "breaths" and "pulses". Contrast is so poor that several scenes are nothing but a black screen. Making out objects in dark scenes is virtually impossible. All the title cards are "stills" that have been reinserted into the prints. They are the best looking parts!

BOTH copies (original and replacement) I received were unplayable on several players. Both went back. I did not bother getting a replacement on the 2nd bad one as I had seen enough from both copies to decide it is better to pay more and get one of the remastered versions that are available.

If all you are wanting to do is screen the films (my original goal) to determine if you want to pay for better copies this might be acceptable. Even then, both films are available in other multi-film packages that offer better value although I'm sure the audio/video quality will be about the same."
