Movie Reviews

Old Film Put on DVD
michaellouk | 12/22/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I remember this series on Laserdisk and at the time it was a nice background diversion. But times have changed and my equipment has improved. The video quality is very bad. The film grain is very evident and flaws in the film are clearly visible. It's the first DVD I've seen that looks like bad TV reception."
Reissue shows its age

"Ignoring for the moment the artistic merit of new age music -- you wouldn't be reading this review if you weren't predisposed to enjoy it -- this DVD shows the age of its release. Pioneer doesn't say whether this reissue was created from original materials or from captured LaserDisc frames; it shows all the wear and tear of a print at a second-run art house! Get used to black specks, white spots, and the occasional vertical bars from a color sync problem on the left side of the picture. Sound quality is acceptable. (You get your choice of PCM or Dolby Digital.) My advice: buy the excerpted CD's instead, and skip the DVD -- unless you just fell in love with some scene from your old LaserDisc copy. You are of an age that you bought the LaserDisc in 1984, right? Sure, I knew you did... Why else would you even be considering this DVD?"
Windham Hill Creations - A Phylosophy of Sight and Sound

(5 out of 5 stars)

"KEEP IN MIND: THIS SELECTION APPEARS IN "SPECIAL INTERESTS"!Now, with that under our belts, the technology involved in the
making of the first four Windham Hill music videos, (and that is
what they truly are), was direct-to-digital audio and video "nailed" to a laserdisk and presented to the public. New Age music and unique complimentary video presentations will have you
relaxed in less than ten minutes. The music is soothing and the pictures have far more eye appeal than a travelogue. No story; no
plot; just eye-ear choreography guaranteed to satisfy."
Juss' a little dissapointed!

"Well,I am a fan of the Autumn Portrait DVD, and I must say that this here Water's Edge is no Autumn Portrait. Lots of industial oriented landscapes. Huge oil tanker looking boat scene was a bit much, not to mention long scenes of a bridges with cars passing by. Given all the scenes were on "the waters edge", but just not enough nature for me.Music was great as always and what nature scenes it does have are wonderfull......."
