    Reviewer: Sean Kelly

    Unfortunately.. I don't like a single thing about this disc aside from the movie itself. The video quality is mediocre at best, and it's a "flipper" on top of that. I'm pretty sure the aspect ratio is listed incorrectly as 1.85:1.. it appears to be closer to 2.25:1, but I need someone to confirm this. There is a whoppin' 3 pages of production notes which is another disappointment. To add to my dismay, the jump to scene index consists in its entirety of 6 selections for side A and 3 selections for side B. Gimme a break. Something off the wall that I noticed is an incorrect menu hilite on selection of the 2nd theatrical trailer, but it's rather trivial. Let us join together in prayer that this disc might be remastered on RSDL! (Ed. Note: Rumor has it that this disc is being re-released on a RSDL disc.)
