****e! That's about the best way to describe todays release of "Tremors" on Region 2 DVD, after a three month delay!! Columbia Tri-Star Home Video have given UK DVD owners some of the best DVD's ever (Jaws, El Mariachi/Desperado 2-on-1, The Thing), but this disc is a real disappointment. The picture quality is bad, although not the worst I've seen on a DVD. Unfortunately, the detail seems to be lost, especially in background and surface textures. As the film is set in a small town near a desert, this makes things a little bit iffy, to say the least, picture wise, as you loose a lot of information. The sound is only Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, and the ratio is about 1.85:1. The extras incorrectly list an extra trailer (for Tremors 2) but I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere on the disc. However, the one saving grace, apart from the movie itself - which is totally ace, and a hilarious spoof of all those B-movies! - is the excellent hour-long "Making Of" documentary, that includes the original ending that has never been seen before in the UK until now! Such a shame that a great film like this, is once again, released on a not-that-great R2 disc, by a company who can and normally does, do better! Region 1 gets a stunningly clear print, with DD 5.1 Surround sound, all the extras above, plus outtakes, more trailers, and other stuff not on the R2 disc! To all you R2 companies, I say this: "Stuff you!" If this is how they want to get more people to buy R2 DVD's, then it's definitely a case of "must try harder". PLus, it has the title of "Collector's Edition" on the main Menu Screen! Not muchy of a Collector's Edition, in my opinion. I'm off to go online and buy a copy from my normal Region 1 importer instead. What a waste of my time, in waiting for this release! Pooch P.S. Columbia Tri-Star :- please STOP using those crummy icons to explain what different items on the disc are! Apart from pointless, they are unhelpful and very distracting!
