SIGN 'O' THE TIMES DVD

Hey Ya'll,

Can someone please help me?
This morning I was at the MediaMarkt warehouse overhere in Rotterdam and between the Prince DVD's there it was.....the 'Sign 'O' The Times DVD. At the counter I asked if this is a official release and they told me it is. It's not a Warner release, it's released by Video/Film Express B.V. Can someone please confirm if this is THE official release?

Except the SOTT movie, there is a teaser as extra feature (I can view the DVD 2nite, so I have to wait!!!!!)

Greetings,
VinoDaMusica

What is official?? It is only released in Holland. I bought it, but it is going back to the shop!! My old video has got a better picture quality and the sound on this DVD is not worthy to have a DTS logo!! I am sorry for this negative revieuw, but it all this is already discussed on this site.

New release Sign "O" the Times DUTCH DVD

It sucks ...

First of all: it's sped up!! Same speed as Moonrakers "Wonderboy"

Second: it's a copy of a VHS, a bad copy! Lots of litle light-dots and disturbances, and a very low resolution.

I think they really used Wonderboy to upgrade the sound-quality.

But the speed really annoys me ..... especially in "It's gonna be a beautiful night" which is sped up in the original release by purpose (why???). This DVD really contains the chipmunks-remix!

The image quality is very bad .... okay, it isn't dark like the brazilian version. but the quality of the brazilian version is better!

So after 16 years my taped TV-broadcast version of this movie is still the best!!! Correct speed and great quality.

Every version that appeared in the shops ... always something wrong with it.
There's a lot wrong with this dutch DVD release... so save your money!!!

I even prefer the Brazilian version.

Copied from my earlier tread:
