Madacy version of The Big Boss (I think that's what is was)... direct VHS to DVD port including the static

Fargo, Moulin Rouge, and 13th Warrior are all favorites of mine, i own the SE's of Fargo and Moulin Rouge. the only DVD i got rid of was Master and Commander: Far Side of the World......and it didn't have anything to do with the DVD just didn't care for the movie
I bought it to show a friend who had never seen Metropolis -- I had talked it up for days and then when I popped the disc in, he basically laughed at me! (and i laughed at the disc). It was SOOO bad -- not only was the image terrible, but it was mis-framed and crooked, so the text cards were slanted and partly off the screen so you couldn't read them!
I was so indignant I made the used store take it back for a full refund, even though they don't normally do returns. I haven't gotten the new & improved version yet.
For those who hate Moulin Rouge, why? I actually strongly dislike the film, but I think the dvds are great - great image, great sound, great features, great everything. What's not to like?
WORST MOVIE: Fando & Lis
I've seen some bad artsy fartsy movies but this one really sent me over the edge. Just utterly stupid drivel, with none of the boundary-breaking intelligence or imagery that Jodorosky's later movies hold. The disc is pretty darn good though - it includes a humoungous feature-length documentary, discussing among other things the failed Dune adaptation that he and other luminaries were working on. If you can get around the interviews with Marcel Marceau (!) its an entertaining, if a bit pretentious, documentary.
Location: Minding the precious things in the Local Shop
Worst Movie(s)- John Carpenter's Vampires, its sequel, Vampires Los Muertes, A Murder of Crows, leprechaun, Romance, Sex and Lucia and far, far too many to lst. THe DVD's for these titles are pretty lame as well.
Lost In Translation
Mission To Mars
Planet of the Apes (remake)
End of Days
Jurassic Park 3 (I should have known to stay far away)
Blade 2 (sorry guys, the sequel sucked ass)
THX (what a waste of my $19.99, it was a blind buy)
Rocky 5 (what were they thinking? I loved the other 4 though.)

Odd... I thought Master and Commander was a great film!
