"I was happy to get 2 of my favorite old movies on one DVD. The music in both is really great which is pretty much what I remembered about Fame. The acting was ok in Fame, not how I remembered it from when I was a kid and it came out ...Back then I thought it was the best movie ever made :-)When I saw that they were doing a remake of it, I could not understand why since the original was so great! Now looking at it with older eyes, I see how dated it is and look forward to seeing the new version. I even rented the TV show which also I thought was so great when I was a kid and found it to be pretty lame now :-)I guess our tastes change as we grow up...
Purple Rain is one of those movies that is just filled with so much great music that I will always love it. I have watched it probably a couple dozen times since it came out, and while the story is kind of dumb, the music is brilliant :-)I don't think Prince has done anything near as good since then..."

"I got this two-movie CD for my wife. The bottom line is, if she's happy, I'm happy. These are not my favorite movies by a long shot, but they are produced well, and I think we got a very good transfer to the digital format. They just ain't my cup o' tea, but, like I said, my wife's all over them, so there's happiness in the household. Five stars from my better half. I would give them three stars for having both movies on a single disc."
