3.0 out of 5 stars For The Price It's Not Bad, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fortress [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
At 2 pound 96 pence minus the Vat plus postage this bluray cost $12.00 Landed in New Zealand Dollars for a movie that is unknown here.Well that's good value I think.
The film on a 150" screen looks OK only stereo sound not 5.1 as stated on the slip sheet but a reasonable watch.I thought it was better than Red Tails which is also unheard of down here because it was not so full of the old American ho ha. yes the cgi was alright . Conclusion it was a good purchase.

Have had this series on video, laser, dvd now bluray. I love Italian westerns. I will collect any film made by Sergio Leone and his mate Ennio Morroconni .They go together like bread and butter.

magnificent always loved this western. Great photography in the style of David Lean with sweeping vistas. Loved Kevin Costner in what would have been one of his early appearances.

1.0 out of 5 stars Come on Anchor Bay Bluray Has to be better than this., 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Crap.A great film butchered by Anchor Bay. Aspect ratio wrong for a start.To makes matters worse it will not play in my Oppo bluray player which an Anchor Bay chip as one of its main features. I think my old version being Non Ana is better

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Scotland [DVD] (DVD)
While surfing TV channals stumbled upon part 1 so bought the series.Its still playing on TV here
As my mother was a war bride from Scotland after her first husband No41 RM Commandos was killed in action France 1944.She meet my father a New Zealander serving as a Pilot in the R N Fleet Air Arm.I have always been interested in Scottish history and its complexity.This 10 part series I found very gripping as it most certainly gave me a lot of info I have never knew about for example when the Kilt became fashionable. I always thought it was there through the ages plus many more facts I did not have a clue about.A great series

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well have been a fan of Butterfly from their beginnings. The dvd is possiblely the best we can get unless they get together and do one with a half decent picture and 5.1 sound.The dvd claims Dolby Digital AC3 but its not, only 2.0 and bad at that.I still prefer my old Iron Butterfly Laser Disc thanks.
