    Anyone seen this DVD yet?
    Is it worth renting, I've not heard much about it.
    Cheers

    I havn't rented it yet as it is 4:3 only,this put me off.

    I have read that because of this the picture is poor and the film isn't any good anyway,though don't take my word on that.

    The crocodile looks anything but real in this film, you can tell it's a computer generated croc. Good film however, some jumpy moments and good one-liners. Don't get R2, fullscreen- R1, anamorphic, not easy to choose is it [​IMG].

    The R1 version of Lake Placid is not anamorphic but at least it's in W/S!
    Dire film IMHO

    The Dutch R2 Lake Placid DVD is Anamorphic and considerably better than the R1. Also has more extras.

    The Jap R2 NTSC is non-Anamorphic but DTS...

    Now you're confused!

    This has got to be one of the most baffling releases I know.

    Could have spent the £3 rental on a McDonalds.

    Only redeeming feature was Bridgit Fonda,she lights up my screen.

    Actually I quite enjoyed this film if you take it as the spoof it was supposed to be. There are some great one liners and ll the family enjoyed it.

    Not a classic but well worth a night's rental.

    Bridgit phoned me today and she agreed with me that it was crap.

    I think some producers and directors in Hollywood have a problem that they all looking for something different,and it doesn't always work.

    I can't think of any outstanding films that have been released this year except Gladiator.

    Charlotte sends her love to everyone

    Hands off, I saw Bridget Fonda first!

    Besides, she starred in "Shag". That says it all...

    If you want a good kids film with a good 5.1 sound track, rent or buy The Iron Giant its one of the best kids film I have seen.
