I've been wanting to buy it but I will wait until you tell us if it's any good first.

Sounds like this has some nasty video problems:

Non-anamorphic 2.35 and a green scratch running down the center? I think I'll pass...

i just watched this dvd yesterday as soon as it arrived.good film but ruined by an appalling transfer.the picture quality is a joke.it is jumpy,has a permanent hair in the bottom left corner of the picture,is very scratchy and has green lines appearing all over the picture.the new dvd company eurovista who have released this disc should be ashamed of themselves.as for the extras and the black and white cheap and nasty insert they are equally crap.AVOID AT ALL COSTS! :mad:

Heces is right... The transfer has been taken fron video... There are even crease lines running through the picture in the early part of the film... Good to get to see the film, but not unmissable... This company had better think about any future releases as I definately wont be getting anything else from them until I hear some good feedback on future product

What a bummer, a real shame that this is such a bum disc. I would have liked to have gotten this one.
