Ebay compilation dvd, a query.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread


if someone has bought one of these homemade dvds with all episodes, can you please let me know if it was worthwhile in terms of quality etc.? This feedback would be well appreciated.

PS (whoever that was): Not everyone owns VCRs - getting the operative terminus and mission infinite eps via these dodgy avenues (kazaa etc) is the best option, considering there's no official dvd distribution for them.

Nevertheless, righteousness is amusing.

The quality is good. I'll sell you my copy if you want. Looks like it was taken from the video tape box set. What I have is the vcd disc, but the dvd is the same quality. tom

Hi, This is my first post to the list. I had recently purchased a double DVD off of Ebay that had both the complete Aeon Flux on one disc and Wet Shorts: The Best Of Liquid Television on the other. I was extremely excited when the DVDs arrived. It's been such a long time since I've seen the show. Unfortunately the DVD of Aeon Flux is about the worst transfer I have ever seen. The entire screen is EXTREMELY pixelated to the point that most of the characters appear to be foggy blocks and many scenes are nearly unwatchable. I own 2 DVD players ( a high end Sony and a region- free player) and it played the same way on both. The Liquid Television DVD on the other hand was very clear (even though it began to freeze up towards the end) and it was great to see the Aeon Flux shorts on it. I tried many times to get in touch with the Ebay seller(who has a high number of positive praise) but to no avail. It turns out that this seller (Monsterfast) was suspended. For me - it's a loss of $34, but I still want to own a copy of this amazing show. Can anyone recommend a seller that has good copy (I'm not looking for perfect, just something that can do the show the justice that it deserves). Thanks - I'll appreciate any feedback I can get. -Jeff
