In Reply to: REVIEW ALERT! Contains comments on Director's Cut. Read at your own Risk! posted by MMMMarcia on November 23, 1999 at 21:23:56:
I just read the review Mike linked to in an earlier post, and apparently you can set the level of the sound on DVDs differently. It may be that the sound was SO disappointing to me on this first viewing because we are not familiar with how to do that, or even if it's an option on our rented player. The reviewer briefly mentioned that the sound was wonderful at 5.0 (or something like that) and not so good set at English 2-something or other, which might be what ours was set at. So, if I watch this on a better player with proper settings, it might sound a lot different. More food for thought.
As for the rest of his review, it was obvious that he wouldn't notice a lot of the little changes that most of us here would. He did make some interesting comments about the "running," and there IS a bit more of that, but mostly only in the scene where Clannad's song was cut. Less sound, more running. Also a sunset scene of the captives being led in the near dark, and Hawkeye running into the night. It goes by pretty quickly, though.
