Highlander 1 & 2 1999 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This review is about “Highlander - 10th anniversary director’s cut” only - I haven’t seen “The Quickening” yet. You will not find a worse image quality on DVD even if you tried! First, it is appalling to sell a letterbox transfer as “state of the art”, as it says on the box. Only an anamorphic transfer deserves to be called that…. The picture is so bad, I truely have seen better looking VHS-tapes. ...The noise in some scenes is so bad, it looks like snowflakes - this cannot be attributed solely to the high-speed film used for some parts of the movie. Diagonal lines are completely torn up by the lack of resolution. There are artifacts of all kinds throughout the movie. It is a shame! The sound quality is very disappointing, too - this is what you get when you try to squeeze a stereo master into the 5.1 format - very unnatural sounds with artificial, reverberated ambience and dialogues. Some very disturbing noise (hiss) is clearly audible, too. I have to use all my discipline not to resort to very personal, R-rated comments about the studio and producers who are responsible for this terrible DVD. Too bad, because this classic movie would have deserved much better.
