Movie Reviews

A Classic is Butchered
Hitch & Hawks | New York, New York United States | 03/21/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"GULLIVER'S TRAVELS has been butchered by a combination of cropping and geometric distortion to fill (or almost fill) a wide screen TV. The fact is that Hollywood movies made prior to 1953 were virtually all shot and framed for a 1.37x1 aspect ratio (all but identical to standard def TVs). For years movie fans have been hounding television stations and video distributors to show films made after 1953 in their proper wide screen ratios. Now that we have wide screen TVs the opposite situation exists, and it's the films made before 1953 that will suffer. I urge people not to support this practice. This is not a product that anyone who has an interest in movies should purchase."
Wrong aspect ratio, poor video quality.
Catherine C. | NJ | 03/27/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The bottom line is that the company producing this title dropped the ball. It is the wrong aspect ratio and the video quality is poor. The previously available DVD is better. Stay far away!"
Terrible Video Quality - Cropped Presentation
Gadget Guru | 03/28/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I had the chance to view this disc and it's a definite no sale for me. The video quality is poor and the original academy aspect ratio 1.37:1 (roughly 4:3) has been cropped and stretched to 16:9. This is not the way it was meant to be seen.

It's very disappointing considering this is a classic that could really stand a decent transfer. Unfortunately, this is not it.

I don't often write reviews, but I felt the need to serve as a warning to others on this one.

Don't buy this edition or you'll be disappointed."
Classic Story, Poor Picture Quality
Urza | PA | 03/30/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"After viewing this on Blu Ray, what else can be said that others have not?

The film has been butchered for all the reasons stated.

Incorrect Aspect

EE,DNR,Poor Picture

Stay far away from this. The 5 star reviews are very suspect, as it is night and day,not just a small difference of opinion."
