Movie Reviews

Print quality should be better
Tom Chenevert | 11/15/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD of Dick Tracy 1937 has a much better print than the VHS tape set that I bought years ago but it leaves a lot to be desired. I was expecting a 5 rating when it arrived but 3 is the best I could do. The commentary is interesting about the Tracy character but I wish there had been talk about how VCI came about to obtain this print etc. and why the quality could be better, but there was nothing. He also talks about the upcoming release of the other Tracy serials but they had better be of better print quality than this or I will just stick to my VHS set."
BUYER BEWARE

"MY BEEF IS NOT WITH THE SERIAL OR THE TRANSFER. I AM COMPLAINING ABOUT THE FACT THAT THIS IS THE SAME 1937 SERIAL PUT OUT BY MARENGO FILMS IN 2004 BEING OFFERED AS A NEW SERIAL FROM 1950. TO TOP IT OFF, AMAZON IS OFFERING BOTH OF THEM AS "BETTER TOGETHER." THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THIS NEW ONE HAS SPECIAL FEATURES NOT OFFERED ON THE MARENGO VERSION. DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE OF BUYING THEM BOTH TOGETHER; THEY ARE THE SAME SERIAL FROM 1937."
