Who is this box for? 27 Aug 2012
By J.R.E - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I defy anyone to tell me what these 25 movies have in common--other than that they were produced/distributed by Universal Studios. This isn't a well-curated collection, just a bunch of movies that a lot of different audiences will like, but there is no audience who is going to have a taste for all of these films. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "Mama Mia!"? OK.... And if you can find me anyone who's going to finish "Pillow Talk" then pop in "The Fast and the Furious," I'd love to meet him/her.

Instead, this set seems to be akin to the world's most expensive box of chocolates--something for everybody, but nothing for any one person. It's something that a great aunt with a lot of cash would give as a birthday gift: "I heard you like movies, so here are a bunch of movies."

Great if you just got here 14 April 2013
By G. Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a wonderful (if not great) collection of movies. But you see, the thing is, if you're into good movies, chances are you already have a bunch of these. For example, out of the 25 titles listed, I already have 13. For someone like me, paying that kind of money for duplicates of so many titles makes no sense at all. If you're new on the block and want to start a library (and have the money), sure, it's an amazing collection. As other reviewers have pointed out, though, one man's "wow!" is another man's yawn. You could never please everyone . . .which makes it seem futile to assemble a collection like this. And another thing: If this set celebrates 100 years of films from Universal, how come the oldest is 1930? Didn't they make anything worthwhile before ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT (1930)? There are two versions of DRACULA (the Lugosi one and the Spanish-language version made concurrently) . . .but no FRANKENSTEIN? And what about all those Lon Chaney films? THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME? Okay, this is where it comes down to a matter of taste or choices. But to leave out the entire silent era? Absurd!

Not a good endorsement for the studio 16 April 2013
By Douglas R. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This collection shows the weakness of Universal. Universal was the house of horror and low-budget comedies in the 30's and 40's. Still, they had many fine titles in the 50's. The previous reviews are correct. This is simply a bunch of films, instead of something that would interest a collector. Even doing a 5 of each genre (horror, comedy, rom-com, action, etc) that covered from the beginnings of sound would have made this an interesting collect. Right now, I can see spending my money elsewhere.

Deluxe Set Film Lovers Will Enjoy 25 Aug 2013
By MacheteJason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This is a 25 disc collection featuring some of the best films from Universal. It features many of their top hits over the decades so this set is very diverse. Overall the picture and audio quality for the films are great. There is a bonus disc with 3.5 hours of extras plus many previously released supplements for the individual films are included. A slim book and an exclusive 15-Track music CD with hit songs from the movies is also provided. My favorite films include: The Bourne Identity, The Fast and the Furious, Apollo 13, Jurassic Park, Field of Dreams, Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Scarface, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, National Lampoon's Animal House, Jaws, The Birds, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Spartacus.

Buy this collection. I would consider it one of the best mega-pack releases from a major studio with plenty of great films that fans will enjoy. Since Amazon is now selling it at 1/3 of the original MSRP there is tremendous value for only $133. However, if you only want a few of the films (or if you already own them) then consider buying them separately on Blu-ray. This set has maintained its value.
