2.0 out of 5 stars A good film, but a bad DVD., 25 July 2011
Not a review of the film, more of a review of the DVD. My major gripe with this disk is that it is non anamorphic. Despite being described as 2.35 Widescreen and being a release from as late as 2005 the picture is presented within a 4*3 frame. This means that if you have your DVD or BluRay player connected by an HDMI it's probably going to have borders top and bottom, left and right. If you can watch it "zoomed in" you suffer a loss in picture quality.

This type of presentation is not really suitable in this time when more and more people have a widescreen television. Amazon should do a much better job at showing this within the product details section.

Film 4 stars. DVD 0 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars 256MB SDRAM PC 133 168 Pins (256 MB SD-RAM ) Memory, 12 Mar 2011
Arrived very quickly. Doubled my computers memory and it now works like a dream. It's important that you choose the correct type and size of memory. My PC is rather old and couldn't take the 512MB of this type. Have a look around and you should be able to download software to help. Google "memory checker" for crucial information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Early thoughts, 23 Dec 2003
I have just recieved this today and it is an impressive package. The tracks have good sound, given the origin of some of them. The sleeve notes are excellent, especially the good news of further Iveys tracks to follow.
However there is one problem, there only appears to be 18 tracks on this disk, not the 21 stated. The missing tracks are by Misunderstood. If there had been a problem with these tracks, perhaps this could have been dealt with before the disk was released.
Consequently a star is lost.
