2.0 out of 5 stars This is another good film not giving a proper treatment !, 16 July 2009
This review is from: Ashanti [DVD] (DVD)
The aspect ratio is actually 2.35:1 letterbox non-anamorphic and not 4:3 as specified at the back cover of DVD. The audio is in 2.0 stereo without any subtitle. The colour seems a little faded but the images look quite sharp throughout the movie. All you have in the menu are only scene selection and a trailer, nothing more. The beautiful scenery and landscape could have been presented so good in anamorphic, taking 1 star rating away for it. Taking away another 2 stars for no subtitles and no extras. By the way, the film is rated 12 on the disc instead of 15 as indicated on the website. If you love the film, it is still worth buying considering there are not much choices on the present market.

2.0 out of 5 stars For Collector's Item Only !, 9 July 2009
This review is from: The Beatles In Mono (Audio CD)
Unlike the digipak stereo box set, the mono box set is made in mini-LP cardboard sleeve edition which made it a collector's item. The high price thanks to these cardboard sleeve production. Of course the sound won't get any better in cardboard sleeve form but the mono sound is really tempting !
On the other hand, Reprise Records have set a very good example for EMI to follow. Bee Gees' 1st, Horizontal and Idea are all remastered for the first time. Each digipak album consists of 2 discs with all songs in stereo/mono version on Disc 1 and previously unissued songs on Disc 2.
Reprise Records have done a wonderful job again for the 3-disc Odessa boxset with Disc 1 in stereo and Disc 2 in mono, plus all previously unissued demos, outtakes & alternate mixes on Disc 3. However, these classic reissues are selling at a fair price !

4.0 out of 5 stars Additional product information, 15 Dec 2007
I bought my region 1 briefcase set in Hong Kong today at about US $65. It is actually a 12" x 8.5" x 2.5" made-in-China plastic so-called briefcase ! The discs are packed in normal digipak edition (paper-back), nevermind the laughable unicorn and toy car. I am rather disappointed that the studio intentionally left out the DTS version for future ripe off ! Hopefully, serious fans may pay special attention to upcoming Japanese NTSC version of this box set. Base on past experience, Japanese special edition always come along with DTS soundtrack !
