1.0 out of 5 stars Incredible movie, but�, March 16, 2001
This review is from: GoodFellas (DVD)
I have to say that this is one of the best movies I've ever seen. Yet the DVD doesn't do this classic justice. First off, the movie is listed as being enhanced for widescreen televisions. Unfortunately, this only applies to the menus, not the film itself. Another major problem is that the soundtrack of this film seems to be mixed in Dolby ProLogic since there's a lack of surround action. And the biggest problem with this disc: it's dual-sided, not dual-layered. In the middle of the film, the disc stops and you have to get up and flip it. Come on: this isn't laser disc.
Memo to Warner Bros.: Remaster this epic anamorphically, in DTS digital surround, and make it a special edition, 2-disc set with the film on a dual-layered disc and extras on the second disc.

Ah, Amazon merges the DVD and Blu Ray reviews. I thought you were saying that the BD was double sided... never mind!

Actually the "widescreen" doesn't even apply to the menus. Is a 4:3 image that has been stretched, the movie itself is a 4:3 image with letterboxing. I had the unfortunate chance to borrow my brothers copy of this DVD yesterday. After seeing how crappy the quality of this DVD is, I decided to check out some reviews to see if anyone else thought it sucked. The movie itself is great, this DVD is ow ever is horrible.

Nothing is enhanced for widescreen, the fact of the matter is this is a 4:3 image (full screen).
