1.0 out of 5 stars a boring and dull journey into madness, November 20, 1999
This review is from: Fitzcarraldo (DVD)
What on earth is this movie about ? It seemed to me pointless and quite unexciting all the way through. Not to mention that the acting is generally below the average and the dialogues mediocre not to say risible. Overrated and a waste of time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate film noir, November 14, 1999
This review is from: Chinatown (DVD)
Roman Polanski's CHINATOWN is a brilliant achievement in film noir. Do not miss this new edition on DVD in its original 2:35 aspect ratio with a new dolby digital remix quite superior to all other releases. A collector's MUST and certainly one of the greatest American picture of the seventies.

1.0 out of 5 stars PAN & SCAN HITS DVD with PIONNEER, September 2, 1999
This review is from: The Bedroom Window (DVD)
This is not a review on "The Bedroom Window" which is by the way a fairly exciting suspenser well directed by Curtis "L.A Confidential" Hanson, but an outburst of anger against the scandalous, revolting, outrageous and insulting behaviour of the PIONNEER "mob" who are injecting Pan & Scan in what was till now an intelligent, exciting and most tempting new standard: DVD. It is really upsetting to see that some scumbags (excuse the word but I am really really furious) are not giving us the choice between widescreen and full screen formats. It is depressing to think that DVD could become in the near future what VHS used to be. Something that destroyed pictures instead of giving them a new life. I beg you not to encourage this kind of products by avoiding them completely. The Bedroom Window was shot in 2.35:1 (scope) which simply means that half of the picture is missing. PIONNEER is a sure stinker and as far as I am concerned I am banning all their products. The Cassandra Crossing has just benefited of the same shock treatment. That was not what DVD was created for.
