Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dirty Mary Crazy Larry / Race With The Devil (Double Feature) (DVD)
Just gotta say, have been a fan of DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY since seeing it as a kid at the drive-in. In fact, this is the movie that got me to like car chasing movies. But this isn't a movie review, this is the DVD review...and the two movies (split onto two discs-way to go Shout!) look as good as the original DVDs that were released some years ago...in fact, they look a little better in my opinion. Maybe has to do with layers being used, don't know if they are single or dual...but they each look better than the originals. Don't get me wrong, they are no Avatar quality by no means, but for their time and the low budget film stock used, they turned pretty good. And anamorphic widescreen always helps with resolution.
The special features look to be carried over from past transfers and the sound is nothing to write home about...but to get these two Peter Fonda classics in one package for around ten bucks, it's a steal!
Shout! is doing pretty good work on their releases and this is another good one! Can't wait to get the Ron Howard double featureThe Ron Howard Action Pack (Eat My Dust! / Grand Theft Auto) [Roger Corman's Cult Classics]

Here it is two years later and Shout finally releases these on blu ray! And the blu ray is cheaper than the DVD I purchased a few years ago. And the blu rays blow away the DVDs. As much as I love Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry I am glad I double dipped. If you have the chance, grab this on blu ray. The format keeps proving to me that it is MUCH better than standard DVD (no matter how old the movie).
