This review is from: Female on the Beach [DVD] (DVD)
If anyone is interested ...this DVD is released in 16 x 9 film ratio .....with an excellent picture quality......but no sub-titles. The DVD box states the film as 4 x 3 which is incorrect...

This review is from: Stranger by the Lake [DVD] (DVD)
This must be the most absurd and unpleasant mainstream movie of recent times ......such utter nonsense
that at times we laughed out so loud the neighbours must have wondered what they were missing.....they missed nothing except a complete mess of idiotic pathetic film making .....

5.0 out of 5 stars roy budd the phantom of the opera, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At long last this magnificent Silent Film Score has been released and it really is a wonderful achievement by Roy Budd at every level of film scoring. It has everything a symphonic score should have.... action...suspense...mood and tragic music that adds to the aura of The Phantom . Budd has given the listener a tour de force of themes that follow in the mode of Hollywoods swashbuckling adventure dramas such as The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Sea Hawk with their opulent symphonic scores by the likes of Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Max Steiner . Budd proves particularly adept at utilising the full orchestral forces to all the films scenes....and is capable of some truly wonderful moments of musical understatement. This is without doubt THE film score release of 2014 ......and hopefully many of todays so called leading film composers will pick up a copy.....listen ...and learn as to how film scoring should be from a real great music composer who sadly is with us no longer .....but his legacy will thankfully live for generations to come.....

1.0 out of 5 stars poirot blu-ray box set, 21 Jan. 2014
This long awaited Box Set is a major disappointment on all levels....picture quality is poor and old masters have been used for Blu-ray conversions....NO SUBTITLES have been included in any language......No extras of any description have been included....HOWEVER there IS good news for fans of these films....BUY the ITALIAN BOX SET at the SAME price as the UK release .....with an extra Blu-ray movie included : The Mirror Cracked....Picture on all 4 films is superior to the UK release ....SUB _TITLES in ENGLISH has been included for all films with many other sub-titles also.....and the extras are just the movie trailers of each film....This excellent 4 movie Box Set is available on AMAZON-ITALY and was released just before Xmas.....and by the way all 4 movies play IN ENGLISH as well as other languages.....

3.0 out of 5 stars brides of dracula blu ray, 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picture quality of this BLU RAY is outstanding and in the film screen anamorphic ratio of 2.1 and the colours really come to the fore and the grain has been left alone in the digital processing which enhances the overall cinematic look....sound is fine and clear.....BUT for those with a HARD OF HEARING problem I have to report that there are NO SUB TITLES and this is NOT acceptable and Final Cut have made a serious error of judgement in presuming everyone has good hearing.....it cheapens the product...
