Movie Reviews

Poor quality garbage
Mark Pollock | Davis, CA United States | 01/30/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Let's make this quick -

Several of these shorts are sourced from other vendor's dvds, specifically the "One Week" short, which only comes from one source. This may not be illegal, but it sure is a crummy thing to do to those good guys who actually source and restore silent films. Buy the Kino set of Keaton to support that kind of work.

Several of these shorts are from inferior copies. They are also poorly encoded, so the quality suffers even more.

And then there is a watermark in the corner, because, even though these are just copies of other people's productions, heaven forbid somebody copies these versions!! So you get to see a watermark during the entire set. Annoying. It's amazing that companies that have everything to lose when it comes to being copied won't put a watermark on THEIR dvds because they know that quality comes first, but some tinpot garbage vendor is willing to slap his logo all over the place.

Don't bother. There is nothing worthy here. Get a different set from Image or Kino, who actually have done something worthwhile. And get me something to control my blood pressure while you are at it. Remember, I bought this so that you don't have to!!"
