    Classic Example of a Fantasy Film

    Posted
    BAndrews

    This is wonderful example of a film that is pure fantasy. It doesn't rely on gratuitous violence or language to draw in the older crowds. It's your hero saving the damsel in distress type film which I absolutely love. This collector's DVD was realized about 10 years after the movie first came out, so having many retrospective features were a perfect touch to this DVD. The best feature on the DVD is the never before seen uncut version. I thought the original version was good, but the uncut version was even better. Certain scenes are made longer and the ending is changed a bit, but its all for the better. The original music score is returned, which makes me glad since it is much more fitting than the original pop music score. On this DVD, you can even chose to isolate the music score, so that you can listen to just the music of the film. You get a behind the scenes feature for every creative and technical creative aspect of this film. Interviews, deleted scenes, behind the scenes features, you name it, it's all on this fabulous DVD.

    At first I was not happy that this was the movie brought home to watch for Movie Night way back in 1986(?). I was 15 and this was gonna be a joke! At about 10 minutes into the movie, I was grabbed by the ears by this music from another world, and a Devil named Darkness that was too cool for words! I didn't know who Tim Curry was at the time - but even if I would have, there's no way I could've imagined that it was him! The Darkness creature design is TOP NOTCH! A young TC,a beautiful Mia Sara and a gaggle of dwarves, elves became one of my favorite movies and I'm glad it's on BD now. I hope that it will make it to 4K one day as well! Also, if you can find the Tangerine Dream OST - get it!

    Director's Cut

    This film should say in bold DIRECTOR"S CUT not only that but the back of the DVD says featuring director's cut as if it had another version. Honestly speaking i liked the version with the Tangerine Dream score and the movie was fine without the extra Lily singing. For all reading this review this DVD is the DIRECTOR'S CUT with the Jerry Goldsmith Score not the TANGERINE DREAM score.

    I already had this on DVD, with both versions, but I grabbed this quickly anyhow, to see them remastered. I'll say right now I do not regret it one bit. I watched both the theatrical and director's cuts, and they both looked to be filmed yesterday. Moreover, the sound was noticeably much better. Lastly, for this price, it's very hard NOT to recommend.

    I had always heard about this movie. I finally saw it one day and was intrigued. I later heard that the director’s cut was better. This set comes with both the director’s cut and the theatrical version so you can take your pick. That makes this a good value.

    This Movie Could Have Been So much Better

    This is a good dvd release to a fairy-tale film that could have been so much better. Openly accepting much of the blame, was Ridley Scott for his uncertainty on how to cut the film. This single disc version is the director's cut only, and while it's good, drops most of the bonus features that appeared on the 2-disc ultimate edition. Big fans will want the 2-disc.

    This is an outstanding dvd release to a good fairy-tale film that could have been so much better. Openly accepting much of the blame, was Ridley Scott for his uncertainty on how to cut the film. Nevertheless, die hard fans will enjoy this very well put together special edition.

    I bought this DVD because I remember liking this movie years ago. Unfortunately, the story did not hold up to my memory. I had no problems with the DVD itself.

    This movie is visually beautiful. Unicorns, elves, fairies and magic, what is not to love? I love any movie with Tim Curry so that also helps my rating. The story is good and has a happy ending so I like this movie.

    A solid movie from the 80s, I was intrigued by it more as a child and now as an adult it was not as interesting, but just okay. I liked the artwork on the sleeve and found the presentation of this edition to be suitable enough.

    Ridley Scott directed this fantasy film with a young Tom Cruise and Tim Curry in fantastic makeup. This disc contains both versions of the film and it is a fun fantasy movie with cool creatures and a good soundtrack.

    So I had the Directors Cut on DVD and recently purchased an UHDTV. It didn't do justice and I had lost the Director Cut DVD on loaning it to someone. Had to purchase this on Blueray.

    A movie starring Tom Cruise in his early years. It still stands the test of time and is quite amazing. Take the time to watch both cuts and enjoy their different appeal.

    Tim Curry nails his role and you wouldn't have known it was him back then, Tom Cruise looks 12. Creepy, but good movie in fantasy of old

    Tim Curry is fantastic as Darkness. It would have been better if he was featured more.

    Getting both versions of this early Scott film is a hugh plus. The transfers are as good as lots of brand new films look. A no brainer.
