THIS DVD IS GARBAGE,
By A Customer
This review is from: Austin Powers In Goldmember (Infinifilm Full Screen Edition) (DVD)
Not the film, but the DVD itself. Whether or not you like Austin Powers is subjective, so I won't bore you with my personal opinions.
However, I will tell you a story. I was watching it last night, and had to get up to do something. So I hit the "pause" button.
THE PAUSE FUNCTION DID NOT WORK!
So I thought, "that's wierd", and hit "stop" instead, so that the movie would just pick up where it left off when I got back. When I did, guess what...
The movie, instead of picking up where I stopped it, actually SKIPPED BACKWORDS TO THE BEGINNING OF THE CHAPTER, which I then had to watch all over again. In addition, there is, in my personal opinion, no excuse why the widescreen and full screen can't just be options on the same disk.
I will NEVER buy anything from this product line again. When a modern-day DVD can't even perform basic functions like "pause" or "stop" like the cheapest of VCRs, something is terribly wrong.
