I watched A Boy and His Dog the other night...looked pretty good...nice healthy level of grain. I thought the colors really popped when Vic went down to Topeka. And the audio was really impressive.

I love this movie though. Don Johnson is one of the most underrated actors of all time. He gets a cheesy wrap because he was in Miami Vice (even though the first couple of seasons of Vice are easily some of the best cop dramas ever produced into a TV show). He is just such a charismatic actor....really fun to watch.

Yeah, I got it back on Thursday.

The Vagrant & The Godsend are both 16x9 and look pretty good.

The Outing is 4x3. It looks decent, obviously sourced from an older video master. The "house" sequence at the beginning of the film looks like the contrast was tinkered with though...it looks way too bright and the blacks look quite gray. After that though, it looks fairly good. And it in uncut with the brief rape scene intact.

Schizoid is 4x3, and the print looks pretty rough.

The Hot Spot / Killing Me Softly Blu-ray review: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Ho.../72441/#Review

And individual movie reviews:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Killin.../44294/#Review

I could care less about Killing Me Softly, but only 2 stars for The Hot Spot? Geez, it even has a 6.3 rating on Imdb!

Well now I'm conflicted. I was going to pass after I saw this posted at AVManiacs but now...

The authoring/compression looks like garbage (on both films). It's a shame because it's obvious they had a very nice print of THE GODSEND to work with. They could've at least made these double sided dvds, giving each film it's own side.

I cannot recommend buying it. Worth a rental maybe to watch once, but I won't be watching it again. Really poor presentation of these films.

I'm curious what people think of the Sci-fi Marathon, as I've been on the fence about getting it, and now I'm leaning towards No.

I don't care about that. Do they look good enough that I should watch them. I already have a nice VHS transfer of THE OUTING. I was hoping for an upgrade.

So pass on the DVD and stick with your VHS then... nobody is forcing you to buy it.
