"All The President's Men": DVD Doesn't Seem Right....?

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by (PeteCresswell), Jul 8, 2006.

  1. Got this DVD last week and am wondering.

    ISBN 0-7909-3295-5 above the bar code and 12569 10182 below.

    Bought it at a major retailer so already I suspect that
    my doubts are misplaced.

    Having said that:
    - It has plenty of "language", but no PG dialog in the beginning.

    - It has no warnings/threats about unauthorized copying.

    - When I put it into a player, it just shows the movie... (geeze,
    what a novelty...)

    - Although the picture quality isn't atrocious enough to suggest
    something that was filmed by hand inside a movie theater, it's
    definitely a few notches below what I've come to take for granted
    in a DVD movie.

    This is one of Warner's early releases. When you put the disc in, it
    just starts playing the movie. It has a menu, but you have to select it
    with the remote. Don't you wish every disc worked this way!

  3. IIRC, Warner since revisited the title with a "real" 2-disk version, if
    you want more professional-looking disk mastering.

  4. Per Derek Janssen:
    Would the video quality be any better - or is that some artifact of the original

  5. Just about ANY recent Warner 2-re-disking looks better--

    Think of Warner's early birth-of-DVD disks like Disney's "Limited
    Editions"...Back then, they thought all you had to do was put the
    videotape copy into a new shape.
    (Need we mention, the new version also has menu and extras.)

    The original version also has a menu, it just doesn't come up first.
