5.0 out of 5 stars A note from the producers of this DVD April 19 2004
By A Customer
We produced the U.S. DVD release of Slade In Flame. Sometimes with vintage film and television releases we are faced with the option of providing content to the viewer in less-than-ideal form, or not providing it at all. Although we knew the master for "Slade In Flame" was less than perfect, it was the same master used on the UK edition of the DVD and the only master we could find. We chose to make the film available to rock fans for their libraries because of its rarity in the U.S., its historical importance, and the overall quality of the film. In our effort to provide an upgraded DVD package, we improved the menus, cover art, and provided the best possible audio for the soundtrack. We also found an original poster for the film's British theatrical release and reproduced it inside the package. We hope that fans of Slade and rock films in general will overlook any shortcomings in the picture and enjoy the film for what it is. -Shout! Factory DVD Producers

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Down and Get With It! May 6 2004
By A Customer
I've loved Slade since they tried to make a comeback in North America in the early 80s with songs like Run Ruaway and My Oh My. Going back more recently to hear more of their catalogue has been a treat, and this movie especially has been a great find. This is fairly standart 70s fare:it moves slowly, it's not very dense and there's not much action. But there is something about the movie that is very compelling. The story, for one, is solid and the performances by all the band memebers are actually pretty fair, which really surprised me. There's the soundtrack as well, which is of course top notch.
I'd also like to note for anyone looking to buy this DVD. The copy offered as I write this is from SHOUT FACTORY (Double check before you order), and whatever may have been offered by others in the past, this one is indeed presented in widescreen format. I can't say what the ratio is exactly, but if it's not 2.35:1 it's bloody close. The picture has some dirt on it, but looks fairly crisp and bright. The packaging looks very smart.
It's really nice to have a long interview with Noddy Holder, you can hear the power in his voice even when he's just sitting around talking, and of the members of the group he does the best job on screen.
Also nice to see Bill Conti again. It's been so long since I last saw his face that I can't even remember what he was in!
All in all, a good treat for a slade fan!

1.0 out of 5 stars Good film, crappy DVD April 2 2004
This is a very good rock film, featuring a band who sadly had little success in America, even though they were immensely popular in the U.K. and Europe.
Unfortunately, Sony did a really poor job with this DVD. The print they used is generally in good condition. However, the film was shot in Panavision (2.35:1 aspect ratio), but on the DVD only the credits are the full widescreen. The rest of the film is only slightly letterboxed, so that characters are routinely cut off the sides and the whole film has an "off-kilter" feel to it.
On top that, Sony (in it's apparent never-ending desire to keep those dreaded black bars as small as possible) has made the height of the image slightly too tall, so that every edit (cut) in the film appears as a quick white line at the top of the picture. It's VERY distracting in the many dark scenes in the movie.
Don't the people at Sony who do the work on these DVD releases have ANY quality control or take ANY pride in their product?
