Great movie - Poor DVD,
This review is from: Risky Business (DVD)
I think most people who buy/rent this DVD have already seen the movie and know what they're getting. There are a lot of good reviews on this movie here at amazon.com but I only saw one that mentioned the quality of the DVD. It is absolutely horrible. The companies who produce these dark, grainy DVDs need to know that the consumers aren't going to accept this type of low-quality transfer. I'd gladly pay a bit more money for a DVD that's viewable. We know how good movies can look on DVD. So why release a disc that looks as poor as this one? As consumers we need to demand better! Just as VHS movies recorded in SLP or EP were unacceptable, so are DVDs that look as bad as this Risky Business disc.

Terry, thanks very much for this comment on the quality of the DVD. You're absolutely right! Why should I pay for a DVD and have it shipped to me half way round the world to later discover it's of poor quality? I won't be buying this as much as I'd love to collect this for keepsake.

Nice post Terry! I was going to comment on the quality of the VHS release until I realized: THIS IS THE BLU-RAY DISC REVIEW!!! I recently saw this movie on Netflix Instant Watch and it looked great. No pixelation or dark colors even though the movie is 25 years old.
The Blu-Ray version is even better. You should really learn about what you're reviewing before commenting. Anyways, the DVD version is probably fine too. You probably just purchased a cheap TV (cheap in quality, not cheap in price to you) and connected incorrect cables to watch it. (Or even worse, you bought everything from Best Buy to let them "take care" of everything for you for an "affordable" price). LMFAO! Old people are funny.
