2.0 out of 5 stars Great film - WORST Blu-ray DISC of All Time !!, 25 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is not about this great film - but about the Blu-ray from EIV - otherwise known a EVIL !

This would have to rate as one of the WORST DISCS OF ALL TIME. It refuses to play in certain players - Panasonic here - and then refuses to play unless a SD Card or USB stick is inserted.

EVIL were once one of the worst DVD companies - but know they've become one of the worst Blu companies.

Why out of the hundred Blu-rays that I own does this one disc NECESSARILY REQUIRE to have 'memory' inserted into a Blu-ray player JUST TO PLAY ? It beggars belief that EVIL created this disc like this.

Be prepared for frustrating time just trying to get this disc started.

1.0 out of 5 stars Non Anamorphic - Not Widescreen for TVs, 25 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bigga Than Ben [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
The Bigga Then Ben DVD is not enhanced for widescreen TVs, though it is advertised at 16x9 widescreen.

For a disc that is made in 2011 it is pathetic that a DVD company is 1) releasing non-anamorphic titles, and 2) promoting false details on the packaging.

Disappointed that no one has been able to provide this level of detail on this DVD in previous posts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray - Stripped of bonus material !, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's this ?? The latest Blu-ray Trilogy collection is STRIPPED OF THE BONUS MATERIAL ?? All gone barring a few commentaries. Cheap and nasty Disney. Couldn't they supply these extras any more ?

Thanks for nothing... literally.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stactic and background noise - No Promises?, 2 Dec 2010
This review is from: Shayne Ward (Audio CD)
What's with the static and background noise on No Promises ? It's like listening to an old record, or if someone has just used a scouring brush on this track. Sadly this song is ruined by all that noise. What has gone wrong ? Was this simply rushed out into production without a decent mastering ? Sony Music UK can't readily be contacted via email to ask a simple question.

1.0 out of 5 stars DVD has ZERO EXTRAS !! Cheap re-release !!, 27 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Them [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
BEWARE of the 2008 'DVD release' of THEM. It has NO EXTRAS.

Where are Making-of featurette, Clémentine's Ordeal featurette,Press conference, Promo, Interview with composer, Background essay and Marketing materials and trailers ?

Metrodome has simply released an extreme budget version with none of these. Thanks for nothing. Talk about disappointing. Why is it necessary to have two versions of the same film listed on Amazon UK ? Becareful which version you get.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aspect Ratio, 29 Jan 2010
Just a quick review about the aspect ratio of The Pope of Greenwich Village. This is presented in 1.85:1 Letterbox 4x3. Ratios on Amazon are neither fully detailed. One hopes that there could be a re-release of this title along for better viewing on a widescreen TV.

3.0 out of 5 stars In widescreen .. finally ??, 5 Nov 2009
This review is from: 1941 [DVD] (DVD)
Just a quick question for another who grabs this - IS IT enhanced for widescreen TVs ???

The only other version has been a poor non 16x9 US Region 1. And could someone please details the extras (one suspects that it will just be the doco from Region 1)

3.0 out of 5 stars I am ... milking my fans !, 3 Nov 2009
Beyonce..... I am... another version of Sascha Fierce.

Look, it was damned expected that Sony would bring out another version of this CD - pity those persons who got suckered into buying the previous 2 releases. Well, they did it with her last album B Day - so those whom waited, will pick up this so called Platinum Edition.

There's little to really comment on the album - you can judge the songs based on previous reviews.

However - the DVD is a reason to pick up this version. However - WHY couldn't Sony get its act together and release a DVD which is enhanced in widescreen or at least something with DECENT PICTURE QUALITY ?? Or is this going to be 'saved' for a future DVD only release ???

Some of the videos will look incredible 'small and tight' on a widscreen TV or PC monitor / laptop. OK - its a small whine, but these videos aren't exactly high quality versions on a 2.8gig DVD. This Platinum Edition is look a tad brassy based on the DVD.

Is this going to be final edition ?????? ...... mmmm..... well there is the remix edition in the US.
