2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 22 Aug 2012
I have been a big of Alan Moore fan since Watchmen and have loved the earlier instalments of TLoEG.

The Miller version of the tale is why we are all going to buy this; and after having watched substandard copies on Youtube I can say the DVD is worth the cost just for this film. Sadly the more recent adaptation has little or no resemblance to the M R James story and is frankly awful; this despite the presence of one of the greatest character actors of all time, John Hurt. The extras are a mixed bag, a three minute "interview with Miller and Frayling is far too short and scarcely worth including. The Ramsey… Read more
