Movie Reviews

Warning Spoiler--Not Our Town Ending
James W. Mccully | Wake Forest, NC United States | 08/13/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this on TV or got it from the library on VHS I think. I had seen the play with Robbie Benson on TV so I wanted to see how this older version compared. Well, they changed the ending in this version which spoils the whole point of the story. So if you have not seen any version, stop reading this review. Anyway, Emily doesn't die in this version. It's a dream. The whole point of this great Thornton Wilder play (I read it in high school, too.) is that people don't appreciate life, they don't stop and smell the roses. They don't savor every moment of their lives. It's not really a happy ending since one of the main characters dies young, but the play is supposed to make you think and look at your life and enjoy every precious moment. I think since Emily doesn't die in this version, it lessens the effectiveness of the message of the play. Find another version that is true to the original is my advice."
DVD Horrible quality

"The technical quality of this DVD was horrible. Hard to understand dialogue. Picture quality poor."
Don't Buy the Miracle Pictures Edition
Thesmothete | Port Angeles, WA, USA | 11/03/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The picture quality of the Miracle Pictures DVD edition of "Our Town" is absolutely abysmal--almost completely unwatchable; the Dolby sound quality is quite good. The Monterey VHS edition of the film has a much better picture if slightly worse sound."
