Jack and the Beanstalk 2001 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
No need for me to review the movie since you’re purchasing this as a collector, right?
So heres the details on the Good Times Home Video Version
Filmed in 1951 (release 1952) using the “Spherical” Cinematographic Process in the Academy Standard Ratio of 1.37:1, this presentation gives us the Full Frame (1.33:1) which is exactly what the director intended us to see.
The original coloring of the film was as so:
** Modern Story:Black and White (Sepiatone);
** Fanasy story: Color (Supercinecolor)
This DVD-5, MPEG2 encoded Movie was about 7 Mbps on Average (with the total disc at 7.16 Mbps)
The audio is a little weak, but definitely clear and intelligible. Dolby Digital 2.0 (Dual Mono) at 192 Kbps.
While the film still appears a bit washed out in comparison to modern presentations, it STELLAR!!! for a 1952 public domain film presentation on DVD. Hence, on a scale of 1-5 (3 being average modern DVD) this would score at 2.85/5) Very good indeed. (Especially in comparison to the “Reel Classic Film” edition of this movie. Just don’t buy that version as long as this one is available.)
Pick it up ... its worth the collection!
