X-Ray / Schizoid (BluRay/DVD Combo)
X-Ray / Schizoid (BluRay/DVD Combo)
DVD ~ Barbi Benton
Price: $12.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Average edition, August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Both movies are rare B to Z- grade 80's slashers miraculously saved by Shout Factory. Any slasher (because it's also trendy these days) than can have a Blu treatment is worth re-discovering. Be warned that they are both below par. Both copies are also mediocre, sound and image. As it's à double bill, price is Ok and comes with interviews that are fun, informative. But that's about it. Nostalgia ride it is, but don't expect much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu ray edition for one of my all-time favorite film., April 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Medusa Touch [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This Blu Ray is 1/ the uncut version (some scenes at the end during the cathedral climax were missing in different countries)
2/ The best way possible to discover an unusual thriller. A mix between a disaster movie, a horror movie, telekinesis and a frightening view on unlimited power.
The bonuses are a must, too - the director's commentary is very enlightening. So is the behind the scene featurette - during the shooting of the cathedral scene


Shock to the System: A Donald Strachey Mystery
Shock to the System: A Donald Strachey Mystery
DVD ~ Chad Allen

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story and a believable Chad Allen, January 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amiable suspenser for those (like me) who enjoy a good whodunit. It wants to give a filmnoir atmosphere, and it succeeds from time to time. Alas, the budget is very low and it feels like it. Morgan Fairchild is a hoot, too bad her rôle is So small. But Chad Allen has a lot of charisma : it helps the movie a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars QATSI TRILOGY ON BLU RAY : A MUST HAVE, January 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An absolute must have - no questions asked.
Too bad the ANIMA MUNDI short has not been giver the proper treatment.
Apart from this minus detail, the 3 movies look astonisinghly good, the bonuses are incredible.
Very proud to have this Criterion edition in my Blu ray library.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a very good way to discover a classic sci-fi movie, January 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Westworld (BD) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Fine edition. The movie was quite ahead of its time, and the movie is still great after 40 years! Apart from hairdos enad clothes, it's a very modern approach to the subjet.
Colors are bright (maybe too much?) for the blu ray, details are good.
The DTS DH AM 5.1 soundtrack is a surprise, but it mainly concerns the music, as the dialogues stay mainly in the center channels.
the major plus are the bonuses : the TV pilot, the vintage featurette, trailer... excellent!
Recommanded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun and bad movies - horrible DVD. You have been Warned., December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Huge disappointment. I love cheesy 80's movies and Arena is by far a fun one. America 3000 is insanely Bad. I mean BAD. And the other two just average.
But the copies here are just abominable. Barely an upgrade to a bad VHS. Full screen (exception for one). Which is by today's standards totally unacceptable. I'd rather pay a little bit more than getting this bottom of the barrel treatment. It's a shame for Shout! To hit such a low quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, this classic gets the HD treatment. And the best one possible., December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An absolute masterpiece, ahead of it's time. And the Criterion edition is chillingly stupendous. The copy is amazing.
A must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect edition for a thrill-ride of a movie., December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Relic [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Excellent monster on the loose movie. Classic but highly efficient. The photography is admirable, one of the best Peter Hyams effort.
This edition has a bombastic 7.1 soundmix : my sound system is still shaking (and in a very good way!)
And M. Hyams commentary is so precious. Enlightning, fun all the way.
Highly recommanded.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different and demanding suspenser, but poor edition., December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dead Awake [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Underrated drama with a unique point of vieW. I've never seen Rose McGowan so touching. The plot is sometimes overcomplicated. But if you let yourself go, you might get lost in a very beautiful movie. I really enjoy the feeling of being slightly lost in a movie. Good suspense and nice twists.
Too bad the blu Ray is 'absolutely horrendous. The visual aspect is ugly (especially in the Dark scenes) and the sound mix is barely average). Which is a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated action movie, December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Terminal Velocity is curiously one of the best b-movie of the 90's. Hitchcockian suspens, with a twist of action, spies, comedy and insane stunts. Sheen is cocky as expected, Kinski charming and a strong female character. Great opening scene, by the way. T.V is highly underrated and it's a shame. The director had skills and even if the screenplay is improbable, is surely fun to watch.
Too bad this blu Ray edition offers few bonuses. The visual quality is here for sure and the Dts Hd Ma 5.1 soundtrack is pulsating and gives great opportunity to let the Joël McNeely music to shine.
