5.0 out of 5 stars "A third-rate burglary attempt"
- that was how presidential Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler referred to the attempted June 17, 1972 break-in at the Washington, D.C. Watergate building in his initial comments on the event. Not worthy of further notice, although "certain elements" might try to "stretch this beyond what it is." Ziegler would come to eat his words several times over when, as a result of the...

Did the media change since "Watergate"?
This is what journalist Linda Ellerbee had to say:
"The media today, much of it, is heavily into self-censorship. They do not pursue stories that they do not believe will be popular with the readers or viewers, particular television. Television is about offending the fewest because it's about filling the seats. In television it's important to remember that the product is not the program. The product is the audience and the consumer is the advertiser."
quote from: "Telling the Truth about Lies",
(BD-bonus feature)

BD has wrong aspect ratio: !.78:1 instead of original 1.85:1. Contrast (Rather dark on some shots; although this might be intentional, to highlight contrast between "dark" political Washington DC and "epicenter of enlightenment" inside Washington Post's editorial office rooms. DP: Gordon Willis, aka 'Prince of Darkness' (P. Biskind) "The Godfather", "Klute" Klute [DVD] [1971] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]) and sharpness vary from satisfactory (e.g. TC 00:13:52, 00:30:52, 01:12:53 (close ups) and 01:37:19-33 (long shots) to more DVD-like levels (e.g. TC 00:12:22, 00:23:26, 00:41:40, 01:12:19 (medium long shot). Maybe picture was zoomed in to fit 16:9 full-screen?

5.0 out of 5 stars All The Presidents Men, 8 Feb 2012
This film was great to watch, interesting and engaging. Also important to document the involvement of E Howard Hunt, who prior to his death admitted to involvement in the conspiracy to assassinate John F. Kennedy.

2.0 out of 5 stars All the President's Men blue ray, 26 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the Preident's Men blue ray is a great film, but the picture quality is poor to say the least. This is without doubt the worst picture of any of my 250 blue rays. What a shame for such a good & interesting film.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Event To Be Repeated Soon, 13 Jun 2005
By 
Martin A Hogan "Marty From SF" (San Francisco Bay Area) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
It has been over 30 years since Watergate and this film is certainly dated. The pacing is slow and there is little drama which was common for mid-seventies film. However, there are some amazing cameos by veteran stars just starting out. You can see very young versions of Jack Warden, Martin Balsam, Hal Holbrook, Jason Robards (he won his Oscar here), Jane Alexander, Meredith Baxter (Burney), Net Beatty, Stephen Collins, Penny Fuller, Polly Holiday and F. Murray Abraham (Oscar for "Amadeus")!
Considering the current state of political affairs, these film events appear very tame. If you see what the current administration is being scrutinized for, this event of Watergate is small potatoes. However, that is one for the individual American to decide. At the very least, this film portrays an innocence in America long ago that seems to be repeating itself. The biggest change is the comparison of the medias' power then and now. No longer can a newspaper have an anonymous source. There is much at stake here and "All The Presidents Men" proves to be an important milestone in political history as well as film history. "Deep Throat" has been outed and it seems of little significance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Redford Great, 11 Mar 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great movie of two superb Hollywood actors; Redford & Hoffman.

The plot of this story is political and the way it unravels into what essentially is the downfall of President Nixon is superb!

The blu-ray quality is very good - the 2.0 stereo sound is good, but Most of us used to 5.1 or more.

Five start rating is for movie
