Movie Reviews

Mushy sound - needs subtitles...
Roglio | Emeryville, CA United States | 07/16/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I was disappointed... the films of live plays are visually flat, and the sound was mushy, and I really wished there were subtitles. In my opinion, the BBC productions are much better."
Shakespeare Goes Home
Dah Deb | Florida | 02/15/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These DVD's are high quality acting with an excellent rendition of Shakespeare's classics. Affordable luxuries are always the best."
Pretty good
Aaron S. Belz | California | 11/27/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The acting and sets are kind of corny. But they're old made-for-BBC productions, so what might one expect?"
