5.0 out of 5 stars Best version or best shills?, January 16, 2009
This review is from: His Girl Friday (Enhanced) 1940 (DVD)
Although I personally love this movie, I noticed that almost all of the reviewers of this version (supposedly "real name" ones as well) seem to be the same person, probably an employee of Triad Productions. I noticed that by clicking the "see all my reviews" hyperlink underneath the reviewers' names gave me a list of the products they had reviewed, and nearly all of them were movies produced by Triad Productions, and all were reviewed extremely favorably. Therefore, I have concluded that this is the same phenomena seen in the Dilbert cartoon [...] .
I find it highly suspicious that the reviewers of this product just happen to have written all their reviews about Triad Productions films and given all of them very favorable ratings.
This may be just a coincidence, but if it is it certainly is a huge one.

Well, why didn't you give it a low score? The copy they're selling came out of the public domain. It's not enhanced, it's not going to look good. At best, it'll be 2-star. The thing is to find a studio release of it. Barring that, you're stuck with terrible copies.

But you're right about all of these shills. I've been composing a list of all the different names Triad uses to review their DVDs. They'll throw in a few extra DVDs in, from other legitimate studios, but for the most part, their presence here is to review TRAID releases, which are all DVD-R burn-on-demand public domain films.

Also, Triad itself uses at least two other names, "Public Domain Flicks" (an uncharacteristic honesty on their part) and, most recently, "Foreign Classics."

As for this title, the best edition would be His Girl Friday, the edition put out by Sony.
