Re: [ARSCLIST] VHS and Beta (was Re: [ARSCLIST] Longevity)
I love the few DVDs I have that just play the movie when you load it. I
can't remember all the titles, but one is a "pan and scan" of Full Metal
Jacket. No extra crud. Load it and it plays. What a novelty! And it's a
good movie that needs no "value added". I can't stand all that bonus junk.
I wonder what percentage of folk listen to the director's commentary, the
2nd, 3rd and 4th languages, read the umpteen subtitles, watch the deleted
scenes, the biography on the "best boy" and "key grip", hear the music
transposed down to the correct key, with original instruments, with sackbuts
in surround, "smell-o-vision" (AKA Aroma-Rama), and....the best feature of
all...multiple angles? For the life of me, the only genre I could think of
that could use multiple angles is porn, for the great acting of course.

Special features and the Main menus. The menu volumes drive me nuts!

Then you go to the special features and burst your eardrums. $1 DVDs tend
have normal audio levels as well.
I love movies in 5.1, and since I installed the sub woofer, I hear things
did not hear before. I've had no problem with dialogue being obscured.
