Movie Reviews

Mastering Errors on the MGM DVD Version
R. Brinkman | 06/03/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely don't buy this DVD version from MGM. They have made some serious mastering errors on this edition. Several scenes are subject to double-imaging (no excuse for that), as well as variances in the color timing and the volume. This title is also in badly need of Technicolor restoration: it has a greenish-look and suffers from color fading (I understand that the previous HBO DVD release did also). At the very least, MGM Home Entertainment needs to pull this title and correct the double-imaging."
Don't Buy This MGM DVD Release!
John C. Simpson | Kennesaw, GA USA | 06/03/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Like so many other people I was waiting for this new release on DVD. Imagine my disappointment when I get 24 minutes into the movie and I get double images! It lasted until about 32 minutes later (when Bob Hope encounters the Bucket of Blood). MGM needs to get the message that these classic movies simply can't be treated this way.
Fortunately I still have my earlier DVD release thru HBO Films because I'll have to return this copy of the Princess and the Pirate."
What happened?
Ol Square Eyes | 06/10/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As mentioned in previous reviews the image quality of this dvd is poor. The color is flat and the double imaging of some of the scenes has to be seen to be believed. How The Princess and the Pirate ever made it out into the world in this state I'll never understand. Didn't anybody even bother to preview this before it was rereleased?"

"There are 4 or 5 areas that MGM should ashamed of. The picture is distorted in a way which is quite awful to look at. The movie sound is fine, considering this was Goldwyn picture. I love this film, but MGM should clean up their act on this one. Either fix these areas, or take it off the market. The colors are wonderful otherwise. Buy it as I did, only if enjoy the film. I returned my first one, assuming it was an error in the disc, hoping the next copy would be better, but to no avail."
