This review is from: Road to Bali (DVD)
I bought the DvD with the exact picture shown ( Alpha video, oldies.com) the video quality is horrible. The colors are washed out and it looks like a VHS. The sound is ok,however .

Very disappointed in the quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks and sounds great on Blu Ray, December 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ok, almost anyone here looking at these reviews are likely already familiar with this fun movie. I am just going to say that I got the Blu Ray for Christmas and it looks like it was fully restored- no scratches or hairs flying by, and the sound is great too! The music IS in stereo. This movie does not look 55 years old. Light years better than the old VHS I used to have. Glad Santa brought it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a TV movie, October 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Unabomber: The True Story (DVD)
Pretty well done movie for a TV movie, but I am biased because I live in the same neighborhood where David and Linda lived when they solved the mystery. They did a great job of depicting their home- it looks just like the main style of home here. Other than that, it seems pretty accurate from what I know about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pros and cons from a resident of "The Place Beyond The Pines" No spoilers, April 15, 2013
This review is from: The Place Beyond the Pines (DVD)
Overall, I liked this movie a lot. I was hoping for it to be perfect, but it's not. Instead of writing anther lengthy review, I came up with it's pros and cons. I want to stress tho, that this is a fictional story that takes place in a real city. If this area was as bad as it is portrayed, nobody would live here, especially me!

Pros:

The basic story is very good. My daughter asked me to name a similar movie and I could not think of any. It is different.

Some exciting action, despite what some people say. The cop chasing the cycle is one of the best ( and ends up being most important) parts of the movie.

Beautiful cinematography. This area really has some nice views, and they took advantage of that.

The entire movie was filmed here and in a neighboring village. No lame Hollywood movie sets as building interiors. The fairground was about 15 miles away, but still close.

Nice soundtrack! love it!

Good casting, except for AJ ( I'm sure he's a great guy, but that accent was ridiculous)

Lots of real people, real tv station, real banks, real hospital, real street names, real fairground. A treat for those of us who live here. A lot of extras ( IE news reporters and the Senator) were playing themselves.

The DA (played by Bruce Greenwood) has the last name of the real police chief. Nice touch, Mr.Cianfrance.

Cons:

Its very long but that doesnt bother me that much because I still liked it.

AJ's accent ( I mean really, what WAS that?)

Too much profanity (every other word in parts is overkill)

It makes all of ours teens look bad. They arent. Yes, SOME are, but not all.
Same goes for the police.

The transition between the second and third act is lame, too convenient, and really turned me off for a few minutes. It does redeem itself,however.

They did almost nothing to make Bradley Cooper look older in the end. They did a nice job with Eva Mendes, but not Bradley.

I do recommend this film, but do not come away from it thinking that everyone who lives here is a criminal! Again, it is fiction.
