No Josh Zyber patented 'Vital Disc Stats' banner this time? What a pity!

Great review! I listened to the radio interview you also mentioned in your original review. Friedkin sounded very convinced, as if only his opinion mattered. I'm quite surprised that he eventually saw the error of his ways.

bought for 14.99$ seems well enough, can't be all that bad. Can't wait to finally watch this, for the second time ever XD

Good review. Not too happy about it being teal-ified, though. ;( Also glad to see that there are some reviewers that actually put focus on whether or not there are forced material before the feature. I've seen a number of extremely positive reviews lately where this fact is--knowingly or not--omitted.

Liked the comment about Firedkin sounding like Donald Trump, btw. (is there really a worse insult to pick when describing a person's voice? If so I'd like to know.)

I try to do that when the title is associated with a distinctive font. Unfortunately, that isn't really the case for The French Connection.

He sounds exactly like Trump. It's creepy!

Correct! You could have produced great ones for the Back to the Future and Star Wars sets! I know you didn't review those, but boy, do they have iconic fonts
