4.0 out of 5 stars CAPTAIN AMERICA-THE SERIAL, 9 Feb 2010
There are many prints around of CAPTAIN AMERICA-THE SERIAL. It was made around 1944,and the picture shape was 4x3 full frame. ALL these prints available on DVD are very poor quality with a very fuzzy image. On this NEW DVD the image is fairly sharpe. The only bad thing about it is that the picture has been reformatted to fit a widescreen tv image of 14x9. This means that the top of the original image has been cut off.This shows up in actors close-ups ,as there heads are cut off sometimes as low as just above the eyes. However,unless paramount release an original archive print,this one is the best available.

1.0 out of 5 stars HOLECROFT HELL, 1 Oct 2009
This review is from: Holcroft Covenant [DVD] (DVD)
THE FILM IS FAIRLY GOOD. THE PICTURE QUALITY ON THIS PEGASUS DVD,MUST BE THE WORLDS WURST. NO DEFINITION,BAD COLOR,WRONG ASPECT RATIO,AND BAD SOUND. AMAZON OFFERED A FULL REFUND,AND I HAVE NOW ORDERED THE REGION 1. MGM.DVD,WHICH OTHER REVIEWERS SAY IS VERY GOOD. I HAVE HAD OVER 300 DVDS FROM AMAZON SELLERS,AND THIS IS THE ONLY BAD ONE I HAVE EVER HAD.

4.0 out of 5 stars HARRY IS BACK, 31 May 2009
HARRY PALMER IS NOW A MIDDLE AGED PRIVATE AGENT,WHO GOES ON A MISSION TO RUSSIA . HERE HE MEETS RUSSIAN AGENT JASON CONNERY,WHO ASSISTS HIM TO GET OUT OF ALL KINDS OF TIGHT SCRAPES. THE SECOND FILM "BULLET TO BEIJING" IS MORE OR LESS A FOLLOW ON FROM THE FIRST FILM,WITH THE SAME MAIN CAST. AN ENJOYABLE DOUBLE FEATURE FOR HARRY PALMER FANS,AND A GOOD ENDING TO THE SERIES WHICH STARTED WITH "THE IPCRESS FILE" MANY YEARS AGO.

5.0 out of 5 stars DICK BARTON TV SERIESTHE, 30 April 2009
THE ILLUSTRATION,AND SOME OF THE INFO ON THE AMAZON DVD LIST IS WRONG. THE ILLUSTRATION AND SOME INFO IS FROM THE HAMMER FILMS FEATURE FILM 1948. THIS DVD IS THE 1970S TV SERIES COMPLETE ON THREE DISCS.IT IS EXCELLENT.THE COVER OF THIS DVD SHOWS TONY VOGEL AS DICK BARTON.THE TV SERIES IS IN COLOUR.

5.0 out of 5 stars CINERAMA LINES GONE, 24 Feb 2009
Ihave both normal and blue ray versions of this dvd. The normal version is very good,with a very wide image .About 95% of the cinerama join lines have been removed. THE BLUE RAY VERSION IS THE BEST,because HOW THE WEST WAS WON ,the entire film is presented in Smilebox,a system that recreates the cinerama deep curve screen,and it looks great. Also as an extra on both dvd versions is a 90 minute documentary CINERAMA ADVENTURE. The cinerama sequences in both dvd versions are presented in the Smilebox deep curve image, featuring clips from all the cinerama films,some with original join lines, and some restored sequences with join lines removed.THE DVDS are worth buying for this disc alone.Now lets have more films restored like this in SMILEBOX.

This VCI restored version of FIGHTING WITH KIT CARSON is the only one worth buying. Picture and sound are very good. The ALPHA VERSION also available is awful.
