I am very happy to own these on dvd. The picture and sound quality were "excellent" for films that are about a decade old( the picture on Wayne's World was just as good as new movies). And the menus were awesome. Thanks.

This is one of the most creative menus I've ever seen. I hope they win awards for it. Can't wait for what they do next... ------------------ but i don't want to be a pirate!

Sorry to rain on the parade here, but I was extremely disappointed they still didn't get the full music rights- I did not buy this set because of that, just like I never bought the VHS or laserdisc that came out 9 years ago. At least Paramount had the decency to put plenty of mentions of this on the cover; I have a VHS of "Saturday Night Fever" that has a LOT of music replaced without any mention of it at all on the cover! It seems Paramount has more problems with music rights than any other studio too (Universal running a close second, though they seem to have fixed more older titles lately.) But I won't knowingly buy an altered version of any movie, period- I already got burned with "Revenge of the Nerds" which had a cut I didn't know about til after I bought it.

I heard Paramount tried to get the original music back for the dvds but could not. This is why the dvds took a long time to come out. Besides the stairway riff being replaced in Wayne's World, what other music was replaced in the two movies?

The only place you'll see WW with all the music is an old print. Sad but true Posted Image They tried, and that's all I can ask. I severely doubt we'll ever NOT be denied Stairway Posted Image

I never saw either Wayne's World films in the theater, so the video versions are what I know. I guess I don't care too much. "Take me Garth!" "Where? I'm low on gas and you need a jacket." I'm personally rather happy with the discs. However, I would've liked to have seen the "Addams Family spoof" trailer, so it's a little bit of a dissapointment there. ------------------ "I've been all around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding."

My discs arrived today.

Bravo, Paramount! They have to be the best menus I've ever seen for a DVD, bar none. Whoever came up with the idea deserves a raise. Posted Image

Martin,

Members of the Home Theater Forum have been known to give out gushing praise like this thread. I know we complain a lot, but we're perfectionists. You and your team at Paramount shouldn't take many of the comments personally nor should you see them as a sign that your efforts go unappreciated.

It must be somewhat terrifying to be constantly evaluated every day (like all studios are here at this forum and many others). However, trust me, your studio really has nothing to worry about. Keep the most requested titles coming in a constant and reasonably paced stream, pay attention to the quality and quantity of content you're producing vs. your competitors (at a given price), and keep up the quality audio/video on your DVDs. If you do that, you'll easily be/remain one of the top studios producing DVDs. Posted Image

Regards,
Dan

I, too, am thrilled with this purchase...

Surprisingly, when I got home, I was more excited about this purchase than I had been about any purchase since Gladiator... and that's saying a lot for me!

Party On Martin!

P.S. Have we talked about DTS yet? Posted Image

Ahhhh! I can't wait to find the time to pop these in and enjoy them. Thank you, Mr. Blythe and company!

I'm not familiar enough with these films to notice any music omissions, so I guess I won't miss it. I'm enough of a purist to want it, though, now that I'm aware!

Martin, I will definitely be buying the WAYNE'S WORLD DVD's sometime soon. I too am somewhat dismayed that they can't be completely restored to their theatrical versions (or that you did not find the "Addams Family" spoof trailer in time), but you did your best, and that means something. As far as this sticky thing of music rights, I know it is often a hard thing to justify to the shareholders, paying what feels like extortion money to record companies that are essentially holding your materials hostage. Perhaps you should set up a trust fund. Just as HTF and Mobius allow for direct donations, and have links to merchants that provide them with revenue, maybe you should set up a "piggy bank" where the fanatics like us can help donate money towards paying residuals. It would send a subtle hint to the music companies and the studio bean-counters that the buyers do care about music in movies, and we are willing to help the effort to maintain their original intended usage. ------------------ "As I looked back over my life, I realized that I enjoyed nothing--not art, not sex--more than going to the movies." -- Gore Vidal

I was very pleasantly surprised with the Wayne's World set. The quality of the transfers on both films was excellent, and Paramount even threw in some great extra features.

Also, I have to mention the title menus. Of all my discs, they are definitely my favorites. Paramount should give the person who thought of them a raise!

Thanks Paramount--nice job.
