This version of the film was released in 2009, yet most of the reviews featured are of earlier versions.

Does anyone else agree with me that is it time to limit reviews to the DVD version of the given film (e.g. Pinocchio) and to the edition of the given book (e.g. The Age of Heretics)?

Yes I totally agree with you. It is not helpful to the consumer to have the theatrical reviews on top of vhs reviews and dvd and blu ray reviews all in the same page, it is nothing short of laughable. You click on a product image and you don't get the reviews dedicated to that specific product, people wanting a review of a blu ray its technical specifications don't want to read reviews for the old dvd versions, or the vhs versions.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. As you already know, the recycling also involves inclusion of dated reviews of earlier editions of books, many of which have been substantially revised for more recent, udated editions. All Amazon has to do is limit reviews to the given version or edition. Hopefully, that wil soon happen.

100% behind you. The remastered Beatles' catalog was just released this month and they have review going back 10+ years. And with Blu-Ray - I HATE having to read someone's review of DVDs and even VHS!!! Same with books - people slam on paperbacks and Kindel on the page for a hardcover. Amazon needs to separate product.

Yes, it's annoying. Most people have seen Pinocchio, and don't need a review of the film, but rather its current incarnation on whatever media they are pondering purchasing. It's strange, because the items do have their own product pages. With Disney including different extras over time, and restoring their films, it should be obvious that people might prefer to see the reviews separately. The best thing to do until Amazon figures this out is to read reviews ordered by newest reviews first, and note which reviews mention the format they are reviewing. Fortunately, many reviewers do offer that information.
