Movie Reviews

What You'd Expect
Wilcy Moore | 04/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These are the complete broadcasts of all 7 games played between the Minnesota Twins and St. Louis Cardinals in the 1987 World Series - 4 games in the Metrodome and 3 games in Busch Stadium. The quality of the broadcasts is very nice, with the exception of the sound during parts of Games 6 & 7. During the first 2.5 innings of Game 6 the sound is really bad and, while not as bad as Game 6, the sound during the first 6.5 innings of Game 7 isn't very good. Al Michaels, Tim McCarver, and Jim Palmer do the call on all 7 games.

I'm a little bit surprised that this set was released before the 1991 Twins vs. Braves series because 3 of these games weren't competitive. Also, it was very cold in Busch Stadium for games 3 & 4, so the crowd enthusiasm is somewhat low. All in all, it's a great trip down memory lane to watch these games again. Let's hope that the good folks at A&E continue to release more and more games in the future."
A Must For Twins Fans!
Gary L. Bartolett | Edina, MN | 04/14/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This set contains the complete 1987 ABC Network World Series game coverage. Each of the seven discs comes in its' own case with the box score and game summary of that specific game. I was a bit surprised that the ABC pre-game and post-game shows weren't included. A nice feature is that you can play these DVD's by the half inning if you wish.
The 7th disc also contains nine bonus features, four of which are from the ABC broadcast, and two others were from the NBC coverage of the 1987 AL Championship Series. The other three features were "A History of the Minnesota Twins", the end of the AL West clinching game against Texas, and some of the Minneapolis and St. Paul victory parades. The seven minute "A History of the Minnesota Twins" was disappointing becuse it was so short.
This set is a must for Twins fans. Cardinals fans might not enjoy it quite so much. More general fans might be able to get by with the cheaper MLB Vintage World Series Films: Minnesota Twins 1987 & 1991."
1987 World Series DVDs
N. Bauer | St. Cloud, MN | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a big Twins Fan and have been waiting for the World Series DVDs to come out. I never recorded the games and I've always been sorry I haven't. This product is so clear and without commercials, and I've been watching them over and over. It's especially significant to my family and me as they hear me talking about the series and now they can see it for themselves. Thank you so much for having this available."
Sound quality and lack of pre/post-game coverage are only dr
D. Hofkin | 05/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Following up on others' reviews, I would agree that the sound quality during the first several innings of Game 6, in particular, is poor. NOTE: the sound on the original TV broadcast of this game was fine (I taped it off of TV at the time). I contacted A&E about this issue, and they said there was nothing they could do about it. My guess is the ABC Sports master tape has degraded in quality over the past 20 years (or they gave A&E a poor copy of it).

Also, the inclusion of pre- and post-game coverage would have made it even better.

Having said all of that, this is still a must-own item for long-time Twins fans. Cardinals fans may want to own it too for historical purposes and footage of solid play by several of their stars at the time, although they should look to the 1982 or 2006 World Series for better highlights of their team."
