Colourized doesn't always mean an improvement in video quality.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom Brown's Schooldays (1951) [DVD] (DVD)
I was initially very excited to receive this colourized version of Tom Brown's Schooldays. I was totally unprepared for the dreadful transfer. The video on this DVD looked like it had been taken directly from the VHS master. Verging on unwatchable on my widescreen LCD television. That being said, the colourization is really quite good, but the image is just too fuzzy to be enjoyable. Also, when colourized versions are offered they usually include the original black and white remastered version as well. This disc didn't include a B&W version just the less than stellar colourized version. I have an old tube type 27" Sony Trinitron which I hooked up and the picture looked somewhat better, which was to be expected with the smaller screen.
I live in Canada and have 'Unlocked' my Marantz DVD player so it now is an 'All Region' DVD player. I have purchased other PAL DVDs and they all play well and are of excellent quality. This version of Tom Brown's Schooldays is a real disappointment.
