Cheesy good 70s fun: shame about the sound quality.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Land That Time Forgot [DVD]  (DVD)
Okay, it`s the The Land that time forgot, from 1975, so, you probably won`t be expecting a Spielberg-esque extravaganza (even if the fantastic DVD cover suggests otherwise). Still, TLTTF is nice, nostalgic (for those of a certain age), entertaining monster movie from a pre-CGI age. My main gripe is with the sound quailty on this particular DVD; the music soundtrack sounds terrible. I don`t remember the strings and brass sounding so wobbly and "jittery" and the voice parts occasionally sound like the actors are delivering their lines in a phonebox. The picture quality itself isn`t that great either, but I`m putting that down to the age of the movie (although, I am sure I have seen better quality versions of this movie on other DVD versions).
This particular DVD comes with two bonus feature interviews; one with actress, Susan Penhaligon, and director, Kevin Connor, and that`s about it.
Okay, rubbery hand puppet monsters aside, TLTTF offers cheesy, 70s entertaining, Saturday afternoon fun (maybe not for very young children); it`s just a pity the DVD quality is a bit of a let down.
