The transfer is not 100% (the print used for Grosse Pointe Blank looks a touch worn - ocassional scratches), but the single version DVDs are none better.
This is a real bargain and a great double feature.
My biggest concern was whether these two movies on DVD were true Widescreen and would play correctly on my TV. Many of the reviews here reviewed the movie but not much on the product, that is the DVD itself. High Fidelity worked great on my 1080P HD TV. No problem there. However, the Grosse Point Blank DVD, I had to select a different picture size on the television in order for it to play "normally" that is the image isn't stretched out one way or another. If I played the Grosse Point Blank DVD on an analog TV I think it would play just fine and appear like a true widescreen/letterbox format. I've had this problem before with some of my exercise DVDs.
For me it's no big deal, even though I wish I didn't have to change the settings on my TV. Aside from this little hiccup, the picture quality is great, the sound is great, the discs were spotless, service was excellent. I don't know what else to say except that High Fidelity plays great on modern HDTVs and Grosse Point Blank didn't quite exactly. It is widescreen but you see that on an analog TV, if this makes any sense.
High Fidelity is one of my favorite movies (the book is great too). I think, Jack Black's best performance. And the movie touches on some of my own themes, music and critical snobbery without actually having talent yourself. Again, very funny and relative. You can watch them over and over...I do.
Get them, watch them and love them.
These are the films you go back to every once in a while and still enjoy.
High Fidelity-I was told by a guy friend that it's exactly how me think. The movie was off beat and funny. Jack Black is a hoot. Tim Robbins has me laughing with his hippie ponytail. John Cusack-spot on as usual. The DVD's were new.
A highly recommended DVD

Grosse Pointe Blank is by far my fav John Cusack movie, so this review is biased to say the least. High fidelity was a bonus but MUCH slower than I remember. A good combo dvd tho!Published 14 months ago by Jack
A couple of John's oldies, but goodies...drift onto "The Grifters" & "Midnight In The Garden Of Good & Evil" if you're so inclined!Published 16 months ago by Kandy Langford
