5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREATEST TREASURE ISLAND EVER, September 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Treasure Island (1990) (DVD)
I remember watching this back in 1990 when it debuted on TNT. The second time it was aired i had my father record it on VHS. I hated having to fast forward through all the commercials. I watched the VHS tape over and over. My mother read me Robert Louis Stevenson's book when i was little, before the movie came out. I was also fascinated by Pirates and buried treasure. I remember seeing a commercial back in the early 90's announcing how the movie was released on VHS. this was back in the days of pre internet. I could not find the VHS anywhere. Many years later with the help of ebay i finally found it. I still watch it all the time. FINALLY!!! it is now on DVD. THIS IS THE GREATEST FILM ADAPTATION of TREASURE ISLAND EVER!!
HESTON IS LONG JOHN SILVER. When you watch this Tale , Charlton Heston is not in the movie. Long John Silver IS The person you are watching. It also has many GREAT English actors. Peter P. aka George Mary, is now deceased, he was also in the movie "The Town" as the head of the Irish Mob who owned the Flower Store. He did a great job playing a pirate. Also Oliver Reed who plays Billy Bones is fabulous. He is now deceased as well. You Might remember him in "Gladiator" as the rich Gladiator Owner who buys and helps Russell Crowes character. You also have Horror Legend and Lord of the Rings Sauromon's Christopher Lee as Blind Pew. Julian Glover as Dr. Lucy , is also currently on HBO's Game of Thrones. Christian Bale has become the biggest now with his role in Batman and such. But Charlton Heston is simply amazing. The cinematography is breathtaking. Shot on Location in Jamaica and in Cornwall England. I also like many, went out and got the soundtrack by the Chieftans. If you want to find it, check Amazon. It is an import. I paid around 30$ as it is VERY hard to find. Overall the movie is stunning. It also follows the book closer then any other treasure island movie, with dialogue straight from the book. This is in my top 5 favorite movies of all time. Its been 21 years since i was a 7 year old watching it on TNT. I am 28 now and i love the movie more and more. No special Effects or CGI, it is flat out old school beautiful movie making. I will watch this movie till the day i die. 21 years later, IT HAS FINALLY ARRIVED ON DVD!!!!!

The best comic out there today. Joe Rogan Is the man. This dvd captures his live act perfectly. HE puts Cook, Men-steala , everyone out there to shame. He is a scholar and a comic in 1. Get this DVD!!

THIS DVD IS AMAZING. I went to this show and it captures the energy perfectly. Dont listen to people who talk about quality, this is as good as it gets. IF your a 311 fan or die hard like myself this will satisfy your 311 desire full throttle. The rarities are insane and not to mention they play for over 4 hours. You cant ask for anymore. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED WITH THIS DVD. THIS IS THE BEST THING ANY BAND COULD HAVE DONE FOR THEIR FANS. Play a 5 hour show and then RELEASE IT!!! A+++++++++++
