I just find it funny how, even when I hear the film is shit, part of me thinks I need it and should probably still buy it. How fucked up is that?
This is why I buy in vast quantities material from ZDD. You can watch rarely seen films cheaply, and if the film is good, then I buy the official release, if the film is shit, then that saves me a small fortune. I've a pretty shrewd idea if the film is crap in pan and scan, chances are the official widescreen release will be also. It takes a certain film shown in pan and scan to warrant a further purchase, for example, MINO GUERRINI'S DATE FOR A MURDER. A brilliant giallo even in pan and scan, so if this is ever available, my name is on it. The other side of the coin is, say, CORRADO FARINA'S THEY'VE CHANGED FACES. It was boring as fuck in pan and scan, and it's even worse in a widescreen remastered dvd release.
