hens tooth 2008 dvd version

one star for the video xfer - OAR 235:1 - 4:3 letterbox (non-anamorphic)

the trailer is anamorphic though. lol

the film i remember seeing and enjoying when i was a teenager. i've been waiting for this release ever since dvds became available. i give the actual film 3 stars now, so i give it an overall rating of 2 since this is the only version available in north america.

the actor stan shaw, who plays one of the marines, is as GREAT as i remember him. and i believe this is the first time we see lee ermey (DI from full metal jacket) on film. there are some great scenes in this film and my favourite is a private conversation between the street smart stan and lee, during the stresses of basic training.

i imagine if you're watching the film on a computer monitor or tube television it will look fine. but larger widescreen plasma and lcd tv owners will definitely be dissapointed, in regards to picture quality.
