Ugh, of course. Two-man brainfart that was. Grazie.


Thanks for a nuanced and articulate review that properly acknowledges the films' strengths, as well as their increasingly obvious weaknesses. I was very surprised that this supposedly definitive release carries only the 1.85:1 version of the first film: the 'Director's Premium Edition' that I have on DVD is open-matted to 1.33:1, and the framing looks much better to me.
One tiny point of correction btw: the camera is actually undercranked for fast motion, and overcranked for slow-motion, so it's just the other way around...
