1.0 out of 5 stars All DVDs come badly pre-scratched!, May 20, 2009
This review is from: My Bloody Valentine 3D/2D Flip (DVD)
This is a warning to potential buyers. Lionsgate really dropped the ball with this release. It looks good at first as they included both the 2D and the 3D versions and included 4 pairs of 3D glasses. The problem however is that they used a double sided disc and just thew the glasses into the DVD case. The glasses package bounces around scratching the hell out of the top of the disc (which contains the 2D version).

The first one I bought was scratched so badly that it affected playback. I returned it. The second one was better but still very badly scratched. Since the clerk said all the discs were this way I just decided to keep the disc and have it buffed/repaired at a video store. What's funny is the clerk at the video store took one look at the title and said "all ours are also the same way." My brother who is a manager of a Movie/Music retail store says they've been taking a lot of returns on this DVD for the same problem.

Whoever at Lionsgate designed this case by throwing in the glasses to scratch up the disc should be fired. They didn't even take the time to put the glasses in an envelope and put it under the insert tabs. They just thew the glasses in without care! The next time you go to a store, shake the case and you can here the glasses shaking around. Awful

Don't even think about getting the 2 Disc version as that edition is also uses a double sided disc with the same problem.

Buyer beware....if you decide to purchase than get ready to get a very badly scratched disc.

yes all dvds for this movie come badly scratched,, bogus distributer, bogus manufacturer... pure laziness, not securing the 3 d glasses in the case to prevent the loose 3 d glasses acting like sandpaper on the disk,,, buyers beware

I heard of the DVD coming damaged. But I guess I was the lucky one. Not a single scratch on it, anywhere. But then again, I didn't order mine. Perhaps that's the reason.

You must be watching a different movie than this one. This movie has no 3D glasses you use the ones for your TV.
