After playing the game, I got a hankering for one of my cherished childhood movies, Young Sherlock Holmes. I could have pulled out the laserdisc player, dusted off my LD copy of YSH, hooked up the player via svideo to my tv… aww thats a lot of work. They recently released it on DVD so I’ll just grab that.
I’ve bitched about DVD covers before, mostly Jet Li movies, but the new cover:
Its horrible compared to the original movie sheet (the one I used above). Looks like some cheap Disney “My Dog Spot” cover. Thats just a minor annoyance, what was really bad was the video transfer. The laserdisc was the source! Thats right, the same LD I have in my collection was used as the master for this dvd.
Maybe then next release will get better treatment, but I was a little disappointed.
One thing I did get out of this viewing is that I watched it until the credits were finished, something I’ve never done before with this movie. Well, now I feel stupid it took me this long to watched it to the end, because there is a little surprise at the end.
