Movie Reviews

Unsinkable DVD in Digital 5.1 Sound
gobirds2 | New England | 05/24/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This marvelous show stopping film is based on the stage musical of the homespun backwoods girl at the turn of the last century from Meredith Willson and Richard Morris, but this is Debbie Reynolds' movie all the way! Her energetic performance as Molly Brown deserved an Oscar and more. This is a big and bawdy old-fashioned musical the way they used to make them. Impressive Choreography by Peter Gennaro and Panavision Cinematography by Daniel Fapp are now captured anamorphically (2.35:1 aspect ratio) on this DVD and make this a real winner. Combined with Meredith Willson's music remastered from the original magnetic multichannel audio into 5.1 discrete digital channels make for impressive viewing. The underrated Harve Presnell plays Johnny Brown. This guy could sing and dance! It was good to finally see him show up in a recent move in a pivital role in "Saving Private Ryan." The DVD extras are not bad. I liked the costume documentary and the screen tests of Debbie Reynolds and Harve Presnell. These were very nostalgic. 1964 sure seems like a long time ago."

"Being a Colorado girl where Molly Brown hails from, this is a must see. As usual Debbie Reynolds is phenomenal, and you just sit in awe watching a woman with so much talent. She can sing, act, and dance, but the only debate is which she does better. One thing that I really liked was while taking dramatic license with the story; it was based on factual events. This is a must watch for anyone that enjoys a really good musical.

"This has got to be the most high energy movie and Broadway show ever produced. Debbie Reynolds as Molly is the most wonderful i've ever seen. Her incredible uplifing, very physical production numbers that she does is amazing. Handsome Harve Presnell as JJ with his great voice always gives me goose pimples.This basically semi, true story of Molly Brown, Hollywood/Broadway movie has excellent picture quality and the 5.1 Stereo Sound is awsome. The breath taking senary, great costumes, supporting cast will give you a night to pure pleasure and you'll want to watch this again and again."
The End of an Era

"When this movie originally came out, I wouldn't have guessed that this would be one of the last great musicals out of Hollywood. Sad as that may be, I am eternally grateful that Debbie Reynolds was cast as Molly Brown. She is absolutely terrific. Of course, she's always terrific and fortunately still going strong. And Harve Presnell.....this man would have been huge in the musical genre if MGM and its musicals hadn't crashed and burned.
If you love the film musical as an art form, this is a must have for your collection. Remember, no one did them bigger or more consistently better than MGM."
