Second Defective Coy--Bootleg?

on 7/24/2012

This is the second defective copy I got through 2 different vendors. Both were shipped from PA. Neither would play in 3 or more Blue-ray players--all of different make. This makes we wonder if a batch of defective seconds or boots are poluting the market for this product.

Review If you're unfamiliar with the genitalia of either gender, "Basic Instinct" is the movie that will clear things up. It's nothing if not steamy. And if you're an aspiring serial killer, this thriller has some excellent pointers on multiple stabbings...Director Paul Verhoeven, a man who never met a scene he couldn't overblow, gives this thrill show everything he's got. But he's stylistically inept. He just blunders ahead with rudimentary suspense tactics. He fared better with robots ("RoboCop") and Austrian bodybuilders ("Total Recall")...Principals Douglas and Stone give you little to really care about. They trade quips and play sexual cat and mouse, but there's nothing below the surface. It's only Douglas's big-name presence that puts any oomph into his character. It's only Stone's nudity that puts anything into hers. She's supposed to be an author, but when she finds time to type a single word -- between all these encounters with Douglas and emotionally hotheaded lover Leilani Sarelle -- is anyone's guess. Unfortunately, Eszterhas did find that kind of time.

Review In their protests against Paul Verhoeven's "Basic Instinct," gay activists have been giving away the ending of the movie. With some thrillers, that would be a damaging blow. But the ending of "Basic Instinct" is so arbitrary that it hardly matters. This is not a movie where the outcome depends upon the personality or behavior of the characters. It's just a wind-up machine to jerk us around...Since most people will be attending "Basic Instinct" in less than a Politically Correct frame of mind, however, does the movie deliver? In a way, it does. It kept me interested, and guessing, right up until that final shot, which revealed that all of my efforts were pointless since the guilt or innocence of the characters was a flip of the coin, based on evidence that could be read both ways. The film is like a crossword puzzle. It keeps your interest until you solve it. Then it's just a worthless scrap with the spaces filled in.

Joel Siegel, Good Morning America This is one of those movies everything you heard about is true.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide In-your-face sex thriller...Audacious, erotic and larger-than-life...
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone charged-up erotic thriller--gory, lurid, brutally funny and without a politically correct thought...
Rita Kempley, The Washington Post A darkly phobic lust story...
Variety Grade-A pulp fiction...[an] erotically charged thriller...which is as weirdly implausible as it is intensely visceral.
