Excerpt: Robin Williams will always be best known for his off the cuff comedy, and more often then not his dramatic turns in film. Long before his Oscar winning role in Good Will Hunting his part of Mr. Keating in this excellent 1989 offering Dead Poets Society easily shows he had the acting chops to not just act comedic crazy, but mix his off beat humor and show some real depth of human character. Essentially Dead Poets is about that one thing. Character.
Excerpt: Very disappointing realease. I really really like that movie and I had hoped for at least a decent transfer whereas this looks only slightly better than an SD presentation. Washed out colors, a soft image which doesn't show much detail.
