Movie Reviews

(1 out of 5 stars)

"It is a rare occasion that I am disappointed enough to write a negative review but I feel compelled to do so.

First, let me emphasize that my complaint is not with the content of the movie which is surprisingly faithful to the book. I've owned 'Tim' on VHS for many years and clearly understood that this version had not been digitally remastered or such. I expected the poor image quality, I simply wanted to be able to watch from a DVD rather than a videotape that was beginning to show its' age.

My issue with this DVD is that a pivotal, and I mean pivotal scene between Tim and Mary is completely left out of this version of the film! I kept 'rewinding' thinking I had somehow missed it but, no, it was not there.

Should I complain so vocally over a $4.99 DVD? Perhaps not, but for those of you who are fans of the movie and just looking for a more contemporary medium to view it in, don't bother with this particular copy of 'Tim'. In comparing the number of minutes on each of the 'Tim' DVDs offered here it would appear that they are all likely missing that scene. I shall just have to try to extend the life of my poor worn out video tape for as long as I can, I suppose."

""Tim" has a 2006 DVD release date, of a film that was made in 1979. The DVD was clearly made from an unrestored film source. The color is poor, and in places the track flips. That said, the film itself is so moving, Colleen Mc Cullough of "Thorn Birds" wrote it after all, that it makes these defects negligible. It's a masterful, moving story, beautifully acted, that is unforgettable.

"I really enjoy this movie. It's not a high dollar movie but it really is a nice story."
