Movie Reviews

Girls with a pretty good DVD
Matthew Lafrance | VT USA | 12/06/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very nice DVD containing the first 5 episodes of the 10 episode Dirty Pair OAV series. Not to be confused with any of the movies/OAV's previously released by Streamline. The episodes look similar to the TV series in their designs and animation. The pair tackle five more assignments of galactic significance with their usual carefree manner and disregard for property. Much of the fun is in the pair's rocky friendship. The DVD is well done in several regards. The liberties taken with the dub seem largely to add to the charm of the show or at least not detract from it. My big complaint with the dub is the foul language which, though I don't disapprove of itself, is a little overused. The subtitle is more literal and feels competent. Each episode is selectable directly from the main menu and starts from a preview of the episode, which is very convenient when you just want to know which one it is. You can select Japanese, English, or English with Op/End Lyrics which is also a nice feature. Credits appear before and after every episode and the lyrics alternate between translated and romanji. Bonus material includes a text-less opening animation but no closing. The picture looked like it was taken from a quality master. The sound I can't really comment on but it looks like Dolby Digital 2-channel for both English and Japanese and sounded clear to me. The only thing I could think to add might be a gallery of some kind, or some liner notes. This was intended for VHS or LaserDisk viewing and made during the 80's, it's no Mononoke Hime. Taking this into consideration I think this is a great DVD that is worth the money. I give it four stars. I only hope ADV can release the TV series in a similar fashion. Please."
Old School Dirty Pair
Big O | Parma, OH United States | 11/29/2001

"I'll get to the point. This DVD is about a pair of interplanetary police agency, or something like that, that do their police work while wearing bikinis. In the four episodes they: save a prison warden, destroy a berserk robot, disarm a bunch of spoiled brats, and shut down a casino. Since this is old school anime, the graphics are not the best but OK, plots are adequate for 25-minute episodes. No explicit violence or nudity, so it's OK for kids. I would have given a 3-star rating if it wasn't for the jokes that the girls crack about each other constantly. Did I mention that they mostly wear bikinis!"
