RetroMedia Playback Problems, 18 November 2004
Author: BijouBob8mm from United States

Recently picked up the Retromedia DVD double feature of RETURN OF THE GIANT MONSTERS/THE MAGIC SERPENT, the third Gamera volume from this company. As with the previous two DVDs, the transfers looked pretty decent, and for what you get the price is nice. However, like the two previous Retromedia Gamera releases, this one has the same playback problems that plagued the earlier DVDs--one of the features wants to freeze up while it plays. In this instance, the second feature (THE MAGIC SERPENT) freezes up about 10-15 minutes into the film. I have seen various reviews complain about this kind of problem on all 3 of Retromedia's Gamera titles (yet none of their other releases seem to suffer from this). After the problem was brought to their attention with their first Gamera release (DESTROY ALL PLANETS/ATTACK OF THE MONSTERS), it would seem something could be done to correct/prevent any further such occurrence.
