The site has had the same format for roughly a decade now and I don't see anything ultimately wrong with that. But still, glossing over this review and gauging from others from the past year I can't help but feel that he's begun phoning them in. I've caught him on a number of occasions giving rave reviews for DVD and blu ray transfers that deserve no praise at all.

Also, how many times did he use the word "although" in the review for The Boogens? More than I cared to count!

Well this title wasnt reviewed by the sites owner George Reis, whos been reviewing things there for a decade now, this particular reviewer always goes overboard with everybody including the films janitors imdb credits to make me not want to continue reading. If I see his name as the reviewer, I usually just go to the last paragraph and thats the end of it for me.

I didn't think it was pretty then, either. Some things just don't get better with age.

Not confirmed yet, Olive very rarely region lock. Most online reviewers always state a US release as region A just to confirm it's a US release, Standard practice.

DVDDRIVE-IN BLU-RAY REVIEW

Mine is on order from DVD Pacific, standard DVD, though. Cannot wait to get it. One of my all time favorite horror/monster flicks.

One thing i can't stand is dvd or blu ray reviews where the reviewer just strickly reviews the movie itself. and not the sound, picture or extras. thats annoying as hell...these movies are over 29 years old. we all seen em. and theres tons of reviews on the net already... christ..

Ian Jane got an early DVD copy and posted a few screencaps at the RockShockPop forums. No review up yet, but it certainly looks nicer than the VHS did!
