Ashes of Time
When I heard this was getting a domestic release I instantly pre-ordered it. Unfortunately, this DVD wound up being the first movie I could not watch the whole way thru.

The major problem is that the framing of the image is horrible. The bottom third of the screen is black, cutting off the bottoms of the actor's faces in close-ups. You can see that the print of the film used had the sub-titles on it because you can see them from behind the black where the new sub-titles are.
