I'm not one to tweak the factory settings on my DVD player but the 10th anniversay Reservoir Dogs release is one disc I found improved to a startling degree by boosting the contrast and cutting the...

Thanks for doing this, Shiv. This thread could well be the best illustrated on the whole w.w.w. and you've convinced me that this version is worth getting hold of. Presumably the Chris Marker doc...

Waiting on you, Shiv. And I will check out DVD Beaver, which seemed to be off-line for a while - what a remarkable site that is ! In the meantime I've been spinning the Reg 2 Ikiru on my dvd drive....

I don't dispute that the French "have a history in treating with a lot of respect (the way Criterion does at home) a number of Art House/International directors/films": pro-bassoonist, above or that...

Looks to me like a fair review and we aren't going to get a better DVD transfer until HiDef DVDs are the norm. Some of the scenes on this 1960s have been transferred execllently though: the warders...

The Virgin sale has Sum Of All Fears at 6.99, which tempted me to buy a movie I yawned over on the big screen. Turns out it's excellent on DVD with a cracking transfer - showing me after the...

welshboy: nice review of a rollercoaster DVD. One thing I would say is that - in comparison to the picture quality on digital BBC3 - the picture quality on the dvd release is not quite as good. ...

Don't think many of Louis Malle's movies are available on DVD apart from the atypical "Damage" with Jeremy Irons. Another great film from this master is "Goodbye to Childhood": Au Revoir Les...

The claim that the two-series set would only be available for 24 hours must have been Fox "hype" because it remains on sale in stores. As does E.T. which I recall was also to be withdrawn at...

The new Wellspring release of Ran is region-free

The transfer for the new release is one big improvement on the Fox Lorber copy, thank heavens. It's already - I think - been documented that it isn't perfect but I'm very thrilled by what is now...

Daren, I'dd never heard of dvdsoon so I was interested in your post. What's their postage time like ? Playcom's would be hard to beat; sometime's it's been no more than two days for region 1 disc,...

Having disc problems with the Tartan release of 400 Blows

The new Tartan dvd release has about six Truffaut trailers as a "special feature". When any of these are accessed the dvd player shuts down. I've tried the disc on two other players with the same...

One of the worst packages must be the sleeve for King of Comedy. It looks as though it's been designed by Rupert Pupkin. It's a shame this has just been thrown out on the cheap because the movie is...

What aspect ratio is A.E.'s "new" release of The Sacrifice ?

Artificial Eye have just released Tarkovsky's last film, The Sacrifice, on DVD. It's certainly not cheap at 25 in the UK - though playcom have it listed at 18. The sleeve claims that the aspect...
