Excellent films by a master director,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mizoguchi Collection [DVD]  (DVD)I'm posting this review in an attempt to rectify the ridiculous review by M.C.Wootton who clearly does not understand the purpose of reviews, i.e.to comment on the films and their presentation, NOT on supplier performance on dates of availability. These films were directed by an acknowledged master film maker and although this set is not yet available I'm awarding 5* to ocounteract the misguided and misleading review I've already referred to. No prospective purchaser should be put off by such an illogical review!

Awesome, blu-ray. You have been restored in my faith, AE, and you may come to my birthday party.

The Reviewer says:
It's clearly been delayed because they wanted to release it on blu-ray, which is more than worth the wait, from when I pre-ordered the DVD back on 26th May 2011, which I have now cancelled for the blu-ray

I own a large number of Artificial Eye titles, and I've never had any problems with their products. If any review gets removed it's because of other reasons, usually people reporting it for abuse
If it had come out when scheduled and then they released a blu-ray a few months later, I would not be happy shelling out twice. They must have had access to better masters which meant they were able to release it on blu-ray
Release dates are subject to change and there are a number of factors which can lead to this. An example would be if you are buying a game, and there was a delay as it needed more development time. Would you rather it came out unfinished or be delayed until it is ready?
Masters Of Cinema recently delayed Island Of Lost Souls which was supposed to come out last November. Did I moan about it? No, because it will now be released on blu-ray, therefore I am getting a better quality version of the film
If you like these sorts of films and buy products from these labels, then you clearly like quality products, and as these films are around 70 years old, I'm sure the wait isn't too much of a problem? It will give you plenty of time to watch other films

Why in the world would you post a review on AMAZON complaining about a problem with ARTIFICIAL EYE in delaying the release of the film? What could you possibly hope to accomplish with that? Especially since Amazon is primarily about reviewing the product, which you don't even have?

Since amazon sells the Artificial Eye product, it is only fair, and appropriate, that a reviewer should be allowed to alert other potential buyers, that the product which amazon advertises for, and he had ordered, may not be available in the forseeable future.

I reported to Amazon both your review and the one countering yours. Neither was a review of the DVDs. However, Amazon chose only to delete your (negative) review and to leave the positive one, despite the fact that the positive one makes no sense whatsoever now yours has been deleted...
