Movie Reviews

This is not DVD Audio
Troy Holt | Chantilly, VA United States | 11/07/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The sound on this disk is at best average compared to other 5.1 recordings. The most important thing to note is that the disk is mis-labled. It is NOT DVD-Audio. It is DVD-Video.I bought this disk to test out my new DVD-Audio setup. The disk is not recognized as DVD-Audio. I checked on my PC and it does not contain DVD-Audio data files. ... And the "label tape" (the plastic tape that is used to seal the top of CD and DVD cases) does have the DVD-Video/DVD-Audio icon on it. If you really want a DVD-Audio disk, don't be fooled."
Spectacular Work, Mediocre Presentation

(2 out of 5 stars)

"As an owner of several video and DVD presentations of Handel's Messiah, I have found this particular one to be the most mediocre. While the music itself is acceptable, though not outstanding, the graphics are often totally unrelated to anything to do with Messiah, and a couple of scenes, in my opinion, are inappropriate. In addition, I find it many times more enjoyable to see the people who are singing, playing, conducting. So far, the best Messiah presentation I've seen is Holy Land Arts, "Messiah in Bethlehem," which would get five stars from me."

"The sound on this disc is dissapointing compared to the 3 other DVD audios I have. It is shrill and really no different than a standard CD. The volume levels vary from track to track and actually fades away at times - including the end of the Hallelujah Chorus. Only a few selections are included and there are no notes at all. No text and no info on the soloists or conductor. I doubt I will listen to this disc very much."
Another good DVD-Audio Disc
A. Craig | Grand Junction,CO | 05/31/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD-Audio disc features excerpts from Handel's "Messiah" in a recording with Don Jackson and the LSO and LSOC and some un-credied soloists. It like the other DVD-Audio discs from Silverline are good introductions to the sound world of DVD-Audio. The performances are very good, and most of the favorite highlights from Messiah are here. I find the artwork much more interesting than some of the pictures on other DVD-Audio discs such as some of the Teldec ones. I find pictures and paintings to be less dull than looking at pictures of a conductor anyday, and the Silverline discs also play in any DVD-Video player, you don't need a DVD-Audio player to enjoy everything on them, and the prices are a bit more attractive than some of the other ones. I also recommend the Silverline DVD-Audio Disc of the Tchaikovsky Nutcracker Ballet highlights also with Don Jackson and the LSO."
