My rating is for the DVD...not the film.,
This review is from: A Streetcar Named Desire (Original Director's Version) (DVD)I won't go into how amazing this movie is. We all know that. What gets me is how little respect Warner Bros. pays to the classic films that built their studios. Here you have one of the best films of all time and they release it on a DVD with virtually no extras and a VERY sub-par transfer. From the moment the Warner Bros. logo pops up you can see how unstable the image is...not to mention a large amount of dirt and debris running through every scene. The sound quality isn't much better (I actually had to turn the subtitles on for some of the pivotal scenes).Isn't this film worthy of a restoration? I've run across this same problem a lot with this company's releases. I guess they know that people will buy these wonderful movies based on the reviews of the movies themselves and don't feel any need to fork out cash to ensure the quality of their products.

I refuse to buy a product of poor quality for a movie which is possibly the best film made of it's era. They do not want people to pirate movies, well, then make the quality and price commensurate with your concern to not be pirated!!! Not that I even know how to pirate a movie, I buy lots of good movies but i am ticked off that they don't care enough about their own product to put out a good product.

Why does this 2005 review of a DVD product appear on the page for a 2012 Blu-Ray product? This review would be quite helpful to me if I only knew exactly which of the DVD products it was referring to. But there's no way to tell, since it appears on all the different products bearing this title. Amazon, why do you do this?

I absolutely agree that one of the shortcomings of Amazon is lumping product reviews together. If you go to the full version of the site you can see exactly which version a specific review is for, but they don't carry that info over to the mobile versions of the site.
