5.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly neglected HD transfer versions of some of the greatest masterpieces of the Cinema!, 28 Jan 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Eisenstein Collection Vol.2 [DVD] (DVD)
I am totally astonished to discover,that nobody ,to date,has reviewed this wonderful box set!?.They are, by far ,the best quality transfers,from fully restored original negatives, available on DVD in the UK!.All three films are ,for the first time in the UK,transfered from HD onto DVD!.The result,is spectacular,particularly in the most visually brilliant of Masterpieces the truely awsome IVAN THE TERRIBLE PARTS 1 and 2!!.If any of you have seen any other DVD versions of this film,in particular the horribly ,badly remastered EUREKA VIDEO version ,bin them all!!.Watch these beautifully restored versions,and be amazed!!.I am still in a state of shock!.IVAN THE TERRIBLE in particular,is one of the Worlds great masterpieces,visually and artisticly brilliant,Eisensteins' greatest masterpiece!And if you have n't heard of Eisenstein,it is like you have n't heard of Kubrick?!.Have you heard of Prokofiev?!(PETER AND THE WOLF,ROMEO AND JULIETTE),this equally great artist,did the music scores for both films.ALEXANDER NEVSKY ,being a great concert favorite(like a better version of 1812 Overture),but is also a stirring medievil epic,with still great battle scenes,in the filming of which scores of horses were actually killed!.Long before the days of CGI,with a fantastic final battle, where fleeing Knights crack the ice under their feet and sink into the icey depths of a frozen lake!.I could actually talk for hours about these great films,so I better shut up now,and let you judge for yourselves.
