this film deserves a better DVD!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Get Carter  [DVD] (DVD)This is a very poor quality DVD for what is widely considered to be one of the greatest British films ever made.
The picture is grainy and has dust marks all over it and the sound is muffled and distorted. I own a CD of the soundtrack (featuring both the music and clips of dialogue) and the sound crystal clear so why they couldn't make a stereo or surround sound mix is beyond me. Obviously no attempt has been made to restore it; it his just been transferred to a disc in the cheapest way possible. Special features are also non-existent, apart for a pretty good commentary track.
When compared to other classic film releases this is very poor indeed.

Yes. You are spot on about the print quality of this dvd. I only hope a new print version on Blu-ray is just around the corner! I hope you are reading this Bros. Warner?
