Movie Reviews

W. Rawls | Pangaea | 12/31/2006

"Since this is the only version of this rather fine movie available, it is a pity that the buyer and viewer have to sit through a version whose DVD video transfer is so poor it looks like a VHS dupe of a slow speed VHS dupe shot through somebody's screen door. The audio quality, lo-fi for its day, would be acceptable if not for the incredible THD distortion especially noticeable on background music: even at low volume.

Furthermore, the 108 minutes running time claimed is not what you get: you get 90 minutes, period. Somebody decided to excise quite a lot of this movie. This was probably taken from a VHS tape edited by a TV studio for content and running time. In short, this DVD never saw, got next to, in any way associated with, nor ever had the chance to contemplate what its filmic potential might have been with a decent transfer. I could make a better slow speed VHS dupe from a VHS dupe than this piece of visual drek. The image quality is so poor I had some difficulty reading the opening credits due not to small font size, but rather to fuzziness.

There is no mention of running time on the box, not surprising, and no inside the box literature. Shame on Amazon for marketing this piece of cinematic disingenuousness and not giving more detials and accurate information.

You've got to watch what you are buying these days.

I like the movie, it is a very decent film and one not seen on the market for a long time. Too bad this is what we have to settle for. Someone should take the video distributor to task for their work.

Shame on Amazon!

"This so-called remastered DVD version of "The Next Man" is not a technical improvement on the original VHS version. In addition to highly distorted sound and fuzzy picture quality, the film was poorly edited.The tech info provided by Amazon is skimpy and misleading at best, and deceptive at worst. This a better-than-average movie warrants a higher quality transfer and Amazon customers deserve more reliable and detailed product information.
Shame on Amazon!"
Poor Quality

"The box for the DVD says new digital transfer and yet the video on screen was nearly unwatchable it was of such poor quality. Definitely not truth in advertising. I love this movie and couldn't wait to see it again after all these years, so this was a major disappointment."
Sad to see this version

"It's a pitty, I have been searching for a DVD version of this movie for so long.
And when I finally find it, I discover it is a copy of a bad VHS version, with a picture and sound
quality that it's a shame to put on the market on a DVD.I allready have an VHS copy at home, that is fare
more better than this DVD.I can off course bear the loss of the money, but with the sincere hope, that this
movie some time in the future could be released in a propher quality version on DVD, and
this time for real!From a propher master and with subtitle.
This film is worth it!!!"
