Alright, I just rented "Austin Powers in Goldmember" on DVD.
Nice widescreen presentation. However there are a few things I really hate about this DVD.
1. No speed control! You have to chapter preview to go to a scene in the movie. The FF and REW buttons do not work! Why? This is absurd, lots of people like to FF or REW during a movie.
2. No pause feature! Again I ask why? Whenever I watch a movie I sometimes hit pause to go make a sandwich, chase down my kid, listen to my wife, etc. Now I have to hit stop and wait around for the DVD to load the spot where I left off.
3. Infinifilm is a travesty to DVDs! For those of you who have never seen this "Infinifilm" here is what it means to DVDs. No more bonus features menu for easy access to film features, such as videos, behind the scenes and out takes. Basicly you re-watch the whole film and when a feature pops up then you can watch it. But you have to re-watch the film.
So if I had to give a review on this DVD I would have to say...big thumbs down.
Has anyone else experienced problems like these? Are there any other DVD's without speed control or pause features? Why in God's name would anyone remove these features from a DVD?
