Movie Reviews

Terrible film quality
Dave S. | 08/28/2008

"Unlike "Confidential Films of World War II" by the same company which has high quality film, these "Restricted Films" look like they've been taken by a handicam from the backrow of a theater. There's some Russian and Chinese footage that's so muddy and blurry that it's tough to get any sense of what you're looking at. Avoid this."

"The DVD sleeve is very nice, so I had hopes that the visual qualtiy of the two DVD's would be very good, which is not the case. The poor quality is no doubt the result of these being produced directly from the free, dark and fuzzy reference room VHS or 1" tape copies at the National Archives. These low visual quality shelf copies are intended for content review and the idea then, is to have masters made from their film intermediates that would be ordered and processed by a NA approved lab. This does not appear to be the case.

When DVD's such as these are made from the 35mm film intermediates, the result is a crisp, sharp, gorgeous black and white result. If I could return these DVD's I would do so. After watching a few minutes of the DVD's I set them aside, and will give them to someone else.
