1.0 out of 5 stars Great collection RUINED by pillarboxing 4x3 videos, May 9 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Michael Jackson's Vision (DVD)
It is beyond me why the record company decided to shrink down (pillarbox) the full-frame (4x3) videos, making them incredibly small...about half their original size. I've attached two screen grabs showing the videos set against a traditional 4x3 (720x480) background. I'm not giving the rating to MJ, but rather Epic/Sony, who did a really, really stupid thing. I'll have to go back to the un-remastered out of print collections to get the full frame versions the way they were intended.

This review is from: Mark Hollis (Audio CD)
Former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis strikes out on his own in this exquisite album. There was no band like Talk Talk, and no artist quite like Hollis. It's a real treasure.

These is the Lionsgate release. No English subtitles are on the disc, which is a shame, but still great to have these films available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended., Oct. 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A compelling and surprisingly emotional read. Donna Galanti's characters are clearly drawn and react to their frightening circumstances with realism not often found in the genre. But the wallop for me was the unexpected emotional impact the book had. As an adoptee, I found the subtext fascinating, disturbing and comforting all at the same time. Congratulations and kudos! Highly recommended.

An excellent overview of alternative sexualities. Well written, researched and presented. A great book to read if you're just sliding your toes into the water for the first time.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Queen Henry (Kindle Edition)
A simple yet evocative story that chronicles that awful "adjustment" phase many men and women face while coming to grips with their sexuality. Linda Fausnet has crafted a story that will appeal to the open-hearted and open-minded, no matter which team they play for.

1.0 out of 5 stars 2 BRD sets Defective, Nov. 9 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After looking forward to see this early George Lucas film again, this time in high definition, I was disappointed that the Blu Ray Disc got stuck in "loading" mode. Amazon quickly replaced the defective disc with another one. Sad to say the second disc performed exactly the same way. (I tried a number of other BRDs to make sure it wasn't my player, and everything played fine.) So it seems like the Canadian pressing of THX 1138 may well be defective.

**My low rating is not for the film, but for the manufacturing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great BRD transfer, Jan. 20 2013

A great but frustrating film from Luis Buñuel, I was glad to find this title on Blu-Ray, especially at this price point. Strange that the DVD doesn't have English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential movie for gay men & their families, Jan. 20 2013

This review is from: Breakfast With Scot [Import] (DVD)
A touching and emotionally sophisticated story of a relationship and what brings and keeps people together. I can't recommend this movie enough. Right up there with "Big Eden" and "Bear Cub" (Cachorro). Everything from script to performances to direction is top notch, and the subtext is rich and important.
