Movie Reviews

Total Waste of Money
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I'm so sorry that I paid about $15 for this DVD at a local store. It's not even worth 50 cents. Not only the video & sound qualities are terrible, the whole thing is just a cheap rip-off attempt. Just as the other viewer says, this DVD takes faded trailers and recut them into a documentary. Much worse (and extremely annoying) is the so-called part 2 of this DVD which has a totally false and misleading title "most memorable dance scenes". That was the main reason for me to buy this DVD. I can't describe how frustrated & disappointed I was when I got to that part 2. Each so-called dance scene lasted less than 15 seconds, some lasted about 2 seconds (and I'm not exaggerating, either). My advice is, don't even waste $1 on this piece of garbage."
A disappointment

"This DVD takes faded trailers from major motion pictures and attempts to recut them into a documentary. The end result is underwhelming. The "interviews" provided are minimal to the extreme."
Old Movie Trailers Passed Off As Documentary

"HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS OF THE 50S attempts to mislead purchasers by presenting itself as a documentary. It is nothing of the kind: it is a collection of movie trailers held together by spurious commentary.Like most film fans, I enjoy seeing film trailers--but I resent the manufacturer's attempt to mislead the purchaser re this disk's content. Moreover, the trailers have not been restored, the transfer is bad, and the commentary not only gets in the way of the trailers, it offers absolutely nothing of interest in and of itself. Avoid this psuedo-documentary at all costs."
